“Angel Secret Masquerade”, the third album of Dark Horizon, is the result of 3 years of work, including songwriting and recording. The cd can be placed inside the “heavy rock” genre, is a perfect combination of refined melodies, orchestral arrangiaments and heavy rhythms.
Has been described by critics :
“Too hard to be melodic-hard rock, too arranged and symphonic to be class-metal, too elegant to be power-metal Dark Horizon is a little bit this… and something more”
And again :
“…Dark Horizon combine melodies almost POP / AOR, arrangements of classic music and the force of traditional Hard-metal quite naturally…”
