Advent Horizon biography
ADVENT HORIZON is a contemporary hybrid of 70's prog and 90's rock with a blues twist. Emerging from the local music scene of Salt Lake City, ADVENT HORIZON mixes high energy performances with lyrical and original songwriting to create a unique musical experience.

Advent Horizon is headed by guitarist and lead vocalist Rylee MCDONALS, with Levi Benjamin SHELL on guitar and vocals. Cason WOOD and Mike LOFGREEN, bassist and drummer respectively, account for the group's rhythm section. With a reinvigorated line up ADVENT HORIZON plans to release a new EP in March or April of this year.

The quartet cites a wide array of influences including progressive bands RUSH and KING CRIMSON, as well as blues, funk, and soul ranging from THE BLACK KEYS to TOWER OF POWER.

The band plays an interesting style of pop/hard rock stylings mixed with a Rush-esque heavy prog edge with sprigs of jazz, King Crimson-esque experimental rock, and progressive rhythmic patterns sprinkled in as well. The band will appeal to fans of bands such as RUSH, LED ZEPPELIN, A BIG GOODBYE, and other accessibly-leaning but progressive hard rock bands.

Advent Horizon Heavy Prog

Review by JohnNicholson

4 stars Salt Lake City prog rockers Advent Horizon returned in May this year with their second studio album titled 'Stagehound.' The 11-track record comes with a focused story-telling, remarkable songwriting and with an offer of something that separates them from the bigger part of the prog gang. The band is not shy to explore within pop, indie rock or alternative and fuse these elements with sound-defining progressive rock and metal influences.

Although 'Stagehound' is not a concept album, it feels as a musical that tells a certain story to a listener. The classic rock beats in 'Diary' strip down the sound from the progressive quirkiness of the opening 'Invasion Theorem' and second number 'Motion.' Rush-influenced vocal performance of Rylee McDonald, who also handles the guitar duties, is one of the many highlights 'Stagehound' hides in its anatomy. Listen to 'Midweek Maniac,' and the energy of 'The Working Man' by Canadian top progsters will show itself, out of the blue. However, Advent Horizon still have space to explore before an ultimate rocker is unleashed, and it would be interesting to see them hardening their sound (perhaps on upcoming releases?).

'Stagehound' possesses great balance between the up-beat rock tunes polished with rock's progressive and alternative subgenres, but what this album shows is talent of the band which certainly can bring something epic. Until then, let 'Stagehound' shows itself in its full brilliance.

Thanks to Andy Webb for the artist addition.
