A METALBAND LIKE A MEME
Six different characters take their music seriously but not themselves. Horizis make modern metal for the social media age and write songs with a fusion of epic heavy metal riffs, thrilling orchestral sounds, brutal breakdowns and rousing electro and trance parts. This unusual mixture is rounded off by a combination of mezzo-soprano vocals, powerful screams, shouts and growls. Covering topics from Magic cards, Star Wars Lego to D&D – the only plausible genre remains: “Nerd Metal”
D&D HYMN: TOTAL PARTY KILL
Dungeons and Dragons is arguably the most popular pen-and-paper game of nerds worldwide. Horizis have written an energetic love hymn between fantasy, fiction and the escape from reality, including all the clichés of the game. Musically, the song leans towards melodic death metal but retains their typical variety between orchestra and mezzo-soprano vocals. The high tempo, the driving riffs and the accentuated keyboard are remotely reminiscent of Suidakra, early Ex Deo. Video, song and lyrics are already available on YouTube and all streaming platforms.
BMTH COVER SLEEPWALKING
Nerd metal band Horizis are six metal fans who couldn’t be more different. The one song to unite them all is Sleepwalking. As one of the most important songs of the world stars Bring Me The Horizon, this is either a brilliant idea or absolutely disillusioned. The music of BMTH in this era is characterized by simple song structures and catchy melodies – clear and uncluttered. Horizis put their stamp on it, overloaded with instruments, sounds, various vocal parts and “ear candy”, without taking away the song’s deep emotionality.
