Formerly bandmates in H.E.A.T, vocalist Erik Grönwall and multi-instrumentalist Jona Tee recently announced that they are continuing their musical partnership in a new power metal brainchild named New Horizon. A debut album is currently being lined up for release in spring 2022, but a first single entitled ‘We Unite’ is out today.
The album itself will include guest appearances from Robban Bäck (Mustasch), Sam Totman (DragonForce), Love Magnusson (Dynazty), Dave Dalone (H.E.A.T), Niko Vuorela (Temple Balls) and Laucha Figueroa.
The seeds of New Horizon were actually planted in Jona’s youth, given that he grew up listening to and retains a love of bands such as Iron Maiden, Helloween, Hammerfall, Manowar and Edguy. Heavy metal courses through his veins and he had always dreamed of one day releasing his own power metal anthems. When asked about the sound of New Horizon, he describes it as “a mix between classic power and heavy metal, with a touch of the 21st century.”
Adds Grönwall: “It felt so natural to continue working together, as we have toured all over the world and already released music together for a decade. Jona is truly like my blood brother and New Horizon will be the catalyst for us to release great metal and just have fun.”
