Band Feature: Horna

This raw black metal band from Finland has been gaining some attention with the release of their full-length album least year, titled “Ääniä Yössä” (I have no idea how to pronounce that). They’ve got a lot of songs on their official website, mostly unreleased tracks and bonus tracks, so it’s certainly a reason for fans of the band to visit the website.

For a band that’s only been around for a few years, you’d be surprised by the sheer amount of splits and EPs they have out (much like some ultra-underground grind bands).

Horna has the typical intentionally poor production to the point where the recording is very quiet. I have to admit, at times I wish some of these black metal bands put more effort into production, or at the very least Kurt Ballou could produce or give some lessons on how to do good raw production...
