Interesting concept for an album but big blow losing Erik. 

I was lukewarm on the first album as I'm just not a big power metal guy but there were a couple songs I liked on it.

I'll probably check this out but highly doubt it'll be of much interest to me.

Wasn't a fan of the debut (apart from maybe Stronger Than Steel) it was ok and unlike tts42572 I like a bit of power metal from time to time...but if I want to hear Nils Molin sing i'll quite happily listen to those first few Dynazty albums instead.

Weird situation as I thought this "band" was essentially an Erik project and Jonah was just along for the ride as he is mates with Erik and still works with him on stuff like his covers.

Maybe it's just a case that Erik is mostly tied up with Skid Row these days.

Music sounds cool but song/vocals overall not doing much for me.  Having a hard time getting into a song called Daimyo...what the heck even is that?  Some 16th century warrior or something?  Meh.

Overall, I've soured on projects like this in general so they need to really blow me away to make an impact and this isn't doing that.

From Frontiers:

Jona Tee and Nils Molin is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of their album, ”Conquerors,” an epitome of power metal finesse, slated to hit the shelves on June 14th, 2024, via Frontiers Music. Fans can get a taste of the album’s epic melodies with the lead single and video ”Daimyo” out today. ”Conquerors” presents itself as a thematic anthology, delving into pivotal moments in history and the remarkable individuals who have shaped them. The track ”Daimyo” transports listeners to 16th century feudal Japan, narrating the saga of the renowned unifier Oda Nobunaga.

Following a remarkable journey that saw vocalist Erik Grönwall joining Skid Row, New Horizon’s founder Jona Tee embarked on a mission to find a singer who could embody the essence of the band’s next chapter. His quest led him to longtime friend Nils Molin, renowned vocalist of Dynazty and Amaranthe.

Upon encountering the band’s fresh material, Molin was immediately drawn in, igniting a powerful collaboration. Reflecting on their partnership, Jona Tee shared: ”At our first sit down in the studio he said ‘If I’m going to do this, I need to be 100% involved.’ Nils and I have been exploring the possibility of collaborating on a project for some time now. At first, I deemed it unlikely seeing as he’s got plenty on his plate already. However, I had to ask and was happily surprised that he considered it. And when we started bouncing ideas for lyrical themes the path forward appeared crystal clear. The die has been cast”.

”Conquerors” marks New Horizon’s sophomore album, showcasing their resilience and unwavering commitment to musical excellence. Nils’s commanding vocals seamlessly intertwine with Tee’s intricate melodies, resulting in a sound that is both familiar and refreshingly innovative.

Expressing his excitement for the project, Nils remarked: ”My initial reaction to getting a text from Jona, asking me to sing on the new album was: Damn, I don’t have the time. But upon hearing some of the early material he was working on and after our first couple of sessions tracking vocals, effortlessly collaborating and mapping out a plan for the album, I decided that this simply needs to be done. CONQUERORS became a tale that grew in the making and ultimately expanding into an album way beyond my expectations, brim-packed with stellar songwriting, performances and surprise elements. If you like melodic metal – you’re in for a treat.”

With ”Conquerors” poised for release, New Horizon is poised to ascend further in the power metal realm. Their dedication to musical craftsmanship and adaptability solidifies their position as a rising force in the genre. As they embark on this new chapter, New Horizon is prepared to conquer new frontiers and make an enduring impact on the music scene.

”Conquerors” Tracklist:

Against The Odds

King Of Kings

Daimyo

Shadow Warrior

Apollo

Fallout War

Messenger Of The Stars

Before The Dawn

Edge Of Insanity

Alexander The Great (356-323 B.C)

    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.
