Horizons Fall is a 4-piece out of Sarasota, Florida that has recently put out a 5-song EP entitled “Love Is Key”. Notice it’s not ‘a key’. Or even ‘the key’. Because love is truly so much more important than that. Love is key. In everything. Without it we can do nothing. It covers a multitude of sin. And by it people will know that we follow Christ. Love is so strongly tied to God’s character that the Bible tells us that God is love. Love is key.

This is the driving message of Horizons Fall. That’s not to say that every song is all syrupy sweet. There are songs about cutting and suicide, about broken relationships and living empty meaningless lives. But through them all, the listener is pointed to the love of God. Coming in with a modern rock sound that’s akin to Bulletproof Messenger, Manic Drive, or Burn Season… Horizons Fall brings the rock. Gravelly vocals, distorted guitars, and a thumping low end. All fine-tuned in a quality mix.

The lyrics are also a strong point on “Love Is Key”. There’s really no way to get your signals crossed. “Broken Man” pleads, “I am a dead man walking through quicksand / no solid ground in place for feet to land / I’m sinking faster my life’s a disaster / praying for someone to take my hand / someone to take my hand / and all I’m asking is / save me / replace me / I’m just a broken man / take me / embrace me / make me whole again”. While the title track, “Love Is Key”, says, “there’s a void that’s deep within / like something’s missing / no matter how hard I try / I can’t replace it / I keep searching all my life for that one thing / to break apart my insides and change me / love is the answer / love is key / love is the reason for everything / love brings hope / it’s all we need / love is the answer for everything”.

“Broken Man” was the standout track. Hands down. The song just flat rocked and the heavy groove was captivating. Add to that a heartfelt message of reconciliation and that’s mighty easy on the ears.

Overall: Horizons Fall is modern rock with a side order of spirituality. Big vocals. Big guitars. Big message. Big mistake not to check these guys out.

    checked ‘em. though not my style, its decent. wouldnt buy an album, though.

  2. Jason says:

    Personally, I think this is a pretty solid EP. It varies in styles. Starts off rockin’, comes down to a power ballad, kicks in again….. shows a good balance. I’d definitely recommend these guys! I just found them on ITunes and I’m super stoked to have fun them here.

  3. E says:

    The first and best thing about these talented musicians is that their musical style isn’t the first of it’s kind…but it stil manages to be incredibly unique. Rarely have I ever heard a group that plays decent Hard Rock while mixing it with strong Christian values. You can really feel a spiritual high when you listen to them!

    If you’re looking for a nearly perfect mixture of being lifted up Spiritually while enjoying the great skill of modern Rock, then these guys fit the profile to a “T”.
