Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
We are a DARK HORIZON from Germany, founded by Alex and Dave, who are repsonsible for the guitars and the drummer Markus in autumn 2006. Within a short time the bass guitar player Wentzman joined the band. In the beginning they played coversongs, which were attributed to the Thrash Metal area, while they were searching for a vocalist. In the beginning of 2007 Mike joined the band, took the vocals and brought new influences, that the style changed to Melodic Black/Death Metal. One year later Markus had left the band due to health reasons and were replaced by Chrisitan. At the end of 2008 the band recorded the Demo SURREALISTIC EXISTENCE. The demo includes 5 tracks and were self released by 300 copies.
Now the songwriting for the upcoming album were finished and will start in the last quartal of 2010.....
