Hörn – Schatten des Biests Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising melodic death metal band; HÖRN, from Germany. We have reviewed their powerful piece; Schatten des Biests, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Hörn is a promising melodic power/death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 2 months ago with an impressive song; Schatten des Biests, off from their debut release; Hörn, which was released in 2020. These german gentlemen immediately reminded me of those badass vibes from the ’90s old fashioned power/death metal era when I listened to their music for the first time. Please give it a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Schatten des Biests is an impressive song with a delicious blend of everything we love about pure metal music. The song is mostly structured with the traditional power metal elements from the beginning to the end. Honestly, guys, I wouldn’t call this music as death metal at all. Although the vocal style is taking everything to that direction, the style itself is much more like power metal. On the other hand, the general structure of Schatten des Biests is quite standard. They are technical, but not with the high tempo and the complexity of the basic death metal bands we can think of. I think Hörn’s music is much more melodic than technical oriented, which also reminded me of some remarkable bands closer to their genre such as; Accept, Iced Earth and Blind Guardian.

Additionally, the song has big potential with its melodic and easy listening form. They are focused more on the idea itself than the complexity of the composition, which is understandable. And in my opinion, it is mostly making the difference with its badass guitar partitions, proper dynamics, great energy flow, captivating melodies along with the groove all along the way. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles that we are living in an era where every band and artist has to make some kinda difference in order to be welcomed to the professional music scene. In this case, the band has also earned our respect because they have chosen to make it in the German language instead of English. 


Technically, Schatten des Biests has top-class standards in every way. Hands down. Honestly, this is one of the best sounding metal songs I have listened to lately where everything sounds super clean, pure, raw, powerful, clear, natural, atmospheric, dynamic, very well handled, recorded, balanced, engineered, produced, mixed, mastered and most importantly, in great harmony. As a listener, you never lose the freshness, the interest until the end of the song. Moreover, I personally love listening to bands who have the same dynamics and sound both on their albums and on live performances. Hörn in this way is a special band with this ability.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Hörn’s debut. This album surely is a solid step forward for the band which will introduce their music to the right people.

Please go ahead and check out the links below if you’d like to find out more about the band, follow them on social media and subscribe to their channels to show your support and also not to miss any upcoming releases.
