Rise Above Records seem to have been really on the money when it comes to balls out ‘70s influenced psychedelia lately, unearthing bands I’ve never heard of who play music that sounds like it’s been lifted from the annals of history and placed Bill and Ted-style in the present. Their latest offering is this slab of galloping soulful riff-rock from Sweden’s Horisont, with wailing vocals and powerful proggy guitar chugging. It’s mega cheesy, think The Mars Volta and El Doom & the Born Electric but headed down a more straightforward and slightly hair-metallic route, maybe a touch of The Darkness in the slick cheese-metal grooves.

There’s still a satisfying earthy heaviness to it, though, and the songs are a lot of fun, but it’s genuinely hard to tell sometimes if it’s in earnest or if this is all some kind of tongue-in-cheek exercise in ironic testosterock. It definitely gets a little bit Tenacious D in places, and when they take things down a notch I’m reminded of Spinal Tap and wish they would just scrap all the slow songs and get on with rocking, because when they stick to their strengths - barrelling riffy ‘70s glam-stomping man-rock - they’re very enjoyable.
