Since 2009 UNCHAINED HORIZON from Wilhelmshaven stands for melodic heavy metal with a big portion of rock.
While the German METAL HAMMER fanzine attests "masses of dashing hooks in the popular NWOBHM style" as well as "Priest riffs and Maiden arrangements" on the 2018 album LAST MAN STANDING, the LEGACY magazine describes the quintet from the North Sea as "groovy power metal" as well as "NWOBHM and again and again Maiden in particular, even if not the very early ones".
Of Course IRON MAIDEN is one of the main influences of UNCHAINED HORIZON, especially since there are also several die hard fans in the band who have more Eddie shirts than hole-free socks in their closets.
If you listen carefully to all the releases of the band, you will also find many more references.
Bands like METALLICA or PARADISE LOST belong to the influences as well as BLACK SABBATH or MANOWAR. A lot of metal, a lot of rock.
UNCHAINED HORIZON has signed an international multi-album deal with PURE STEEL RECORDS in 2022
