Horn are a solo project from Germany that plays a very nature orientated from of black metal and this is a review of his 2018 ep "Retrograd" which will be released in March by Iron Bonehead Productions.
Shamanistic style drumming starts off the ep along with a brief use of folk instruments which also gives the music more of a medieval feeling as well as mixing into the heavier sections of the music at times along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs a more raw feeling, acoustic guitars and clean pagan vocals can also be heard briefly as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Horn plays a style of pagan black metal that is very raw and nature orientated while also mixing in elements of folk music to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in German and cover Paganism, Nature< Natural Disasters, Illness and Mankind themes.
In my opinion Horn are a very great sounding nature orientated black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Retrograd" and "De Einder". 8 out of 10.
