Horizon Ignited: Towards The Dying Lands

Towards the Dying Lands is the latest album from Finnish melodic death metal act Horizon Ignited, released on July 1st via Nuclear Blast.

Melodic death metal is a gateway sub-genre for a lot of extreme metal fans. I must admit it’s been a decade or longer since I’ve been an avid fan of this style, however there’s no doubt top quality melo-death can be a very enjoyable style of music for my taste.

The album is 10 tracks of quality melodic death metal chock full of great riffs and memorable vocals. One of my favourite aspects of the band’s sound on this album is the delivery of the clean vocals; they’re memorable and well delivered, without every straying towards the sort of strained, hyper emotional style that can so often blur the lines between modern melodic death metal and metalcore. Horizon Ignited are from Finland, but on this album they’re sounding every bit like a seminal era Gothenburg band, such is the ‘Classic’ era feel to it to my ears-throwing back to albums like Colony (In Flames) and Projector (Dark Tranquillity).

If Melodic Death metal is a genre that you haven’t listened to in recent times, I’d certainly recommend this album as a fine example of the best of the current bands in the genre.
