1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a
little bit about the band?
Hi, we arranged our group in May 2013 and we play black metal 90’s, we’ve tried to play when we were child but now we don’t apply make up! Our biggest influences are The Ulver, the erlier Borknagar, Satyricon Burzum, and obviously the Darkthrone.
2.Recently you have released a new album, how would you describe the
musical sound that is presented on this recording?
The music follows the Norwegian style of 90’s, dirty guitars, shrill voices. An obsessive Style, far from a sophisticated approach, but we pay close attention to the essential visual/evocative part. With the intention to remember some masterpieces which have lead to success the genre; a tribute to what in the 90’s was.
3.The music on the album has the Norwegian sound of the 90's, what was the decision behind going into this musical direction as opposed to amore modern style?
We are bound to this genre by a teen-love, in the 90’s what that came from Norway embraced perfectly ours places atmospheres, the stories, legends, where we are immersed in.
At the time the black metal scene, born around the “dark and unsurmontable silva cimina” included also the “Hastur Evocation”, earlier group of “Hornwood Fell”.
Most people could think that we’ re doing nothing special, but we are convinced there is an innovative element in our music, most of all in 2014. that’s the bad taste: everyone look for the good sound but for us is important the bad sound!
4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
A storm, an oak tree, a man alone watching without see, others themes and characters with their own fears. Actions and life’s dark thoughts of a human counciousness: a landscape made of roughs and fast images, where senses ask to be recognize and to shape form thought symbols and disguises.
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Hornwood Fell'?
We liked the evocative result that comes out with the words “horn-wood-fell”, seemed to be related with the atmospheres and the unreal of our pieces.
6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We never have done live performance yet; and we don’t know if we will do it. We’re focusing the attention on new compositions, it’s the most important thing now.
7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
Not yet, this likes to be a studio project!

A lot of bands mentioned on our biography , are actually in pause, we are concentrated on this project.
Wisest farmers used the Crop rotation, they periodically let stand the plots to give them new vitality.
10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
The Hornwood are born just to do dirty thing! We started this adventure playing Black Metal and we’ll finish doing it over again. For us is very important to remain authentic, congruent with the history of this genre. We are so nostalgic.
11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
We actually listen a lot of musical genres, we play black metal remaining to our pasts, but we listen some masterpieces also. We are fascinated by classical music, the black metal seems to be very close to it. You know, this sensation leaved by opened chords, without palm muting, they sometimes like to be a mass of cellos, however they give an orchestral effect.
