Horizon was a German progressive metal/power metal band.
Horizon was formed in 1998 by drummer Krissy Friedrich and guitarist Patrick Hemer.
After a self-produced debut, they were introduced to Massacre Records by Kosta Zafiriou of Pink Cream 69 and had their first worldwide release, “The Sky’s the Limit”, in 2002, with the help of German producer Achim Kohler. The album, mixing AOR elements with intense riffing and brilliant guitar solos, was critically acclaimed  and was released in Japan through King Records.
The band started then to audition lead singers to allow Patrick Hemer more freedom to dedicate to his guitar playing  and a few names leaked out like that of Chitral Somapala (Firewind, Avalon) and Jakob Samuel (Talisman, The Poodles), but 2004 saw the release of “Worlds Apart” with Patrick Hemer on lead vocals once again.
Much heavier than its predecessor, especially due to Hemer
