Century Media Records is known as one of the most respected labels in the rock community today. It is the home to bands such as: Queensryche, Sick of It All, Voivod, and a number of other established and rising rock acts. Now another well-established act has been added to the label’s already stacked stable of acts in the form of Horisont.
The Swedish stoner rock act released its fourth full-length studio recording Odyssey in 2015. Now a decade after the band first formed it has taken another big step in its career with this news. Thanks to the new worldwide deal the band is hoping to have its fifth album out in 2017 via Century Media Records. The album was discussed along with the new deal in a statement released by the band this week. “We are super excited to be signing with the mighty and highly acclaimed Century Media and look very much forward to be working together,” reads the statement in part. “Right now we are in the most creative era of this bands existence and this will spill right over into the new album we are currently working on. The first taster off the new stuff will hit the streets by the fall and we’re pretty sure it will electrocute your soul. In the meantime – see you on the road!”
Jens Prueter is A&R for Century Media Europe. He discussed his experiences seeing the band live as one of the main reasons for getting the band signed to Century Media. “I first saw HORISONT at the Rock Hard Festival in 2013 where they turned the amphitheater into a sea of head banging and beer raising,” he said. Seeing them again last year, I was impressed how they took their retro influences and progressed into a league of their own. These guys are as tight as their trousers. Looking forward to join their journey! Thanks to all of the guys and the equally amazing Peter from Crusher Records who discovered them first and is still the captain of the ship!”
