Horizon – Tales From Hydra Cluster
Coming to you from the cosmic depths of Abell 1060, ten million light years of psychedelic space rock crammed into the dense confines of this epic stoner rock record.
Horizon hails from Spain, which adds a really cool and legitimate desert flavour to the vocals. There’s just something about that Hispanic sound that just feels “right” when it comes to this genre (I suppose we have John Garcia to thank for that – he is the godfather, after all).
They have a discography that spans back to 2011, and each release shows progression and evolution in their sound. Thick and heavy riffs with a brilliantly competent rhythm section – and don’t forget about the fuzz! This band delivers absolutely everything a space/desert fanatic searches for.
No vinyl release as of yet, but that comes as no surprise considering it was only released on Bandcamp on August 28, 2016. I’ll keep an eye out for any physical copies and keep you posted. The good news is they’re only asking 4 Euros for the digital version (roughly 4.46 USD or 6.06 CAD) so you definitely don’t have any excuse not to add this one to your collection.
