Lost Horizon (MFN) 2003
By the time, Lost Horizon, featuring ex-death metal maven Wojtek Lisicki (Luciferion), hit skids in 2001, the resurgence of traditional heavy metal—coined “power metal”—was well on its way to the bank. HammerFall had albums in the bag, Helloween were back in the saddle (Dark Ride was excellent!), Iron Maiden returned to glory, and Stratovarius had transitioned from Japan-only phenom to continental powerhouse. MFN thought they had a winner with Sweden’s Lost Horizon. Actually, they did, just not the commercial landslide of what was happening on Nuclear Blast and elsewhere. Lisicki was a cunning songsmith, his death metal-isms completely out of the picture here. Frontman Daniel Heiman was unparalleled as well. That he’s still sitting in the shadows of obscurity is a bit of wonder, really. The rhythm section of Christian Nyqvist and Martin Furängen (also ex-Luciferion) was one of the best of the era, putting most rhythm sections to shame, save for McBrain and Harris. Cheesy beyond all doubt, but oh so fucking good (quality reigns supreme!). If there’s a lost power metal band waiting for Game of Thrones nerds to discover, it is this one for sure

Hail to thee, Oh force of will
For awakening minds!
There for me from earliest days
Made this tale so mine

Storm…you almighty, earth, seas and flames
Here I am standing
Bare in my honesty
Calm in the moonshine
Starlight rests my eyes
Pain wakes me conscious
Truth guides my mind

Shine in my heart… strange colours embracing me
I’m not alone in a way
Wrath in my depths brings me to see I’m a warrior soul

Tortured minds… like a cloud they swarm around me
If I said my soul is screaming – would you beleive in me!
Secret cry… hear the souls there howling, howling
While their salvation is so near

Deep inside it’s always my time
All around it’s only a world no one owns
Deep in heart it’s always my time
Grief is nothing life should be
Never bend for misery!
Always standing
Always searching
Always free

Will is the power!

Strayed spirits before me, I see flames still burning
Hearts wounded, transformed
Yet not into grey, cold stones

Innocent days, life full of breath
That is the time I am crying for
Fly free again through virgind lands
That is the life I will fight for to regain

Turn around! All the founts you’ll find behind you
If I said my heart is burning – would you believe in me!
Years flow by, still you drown is caustic memories
Embrace the best and face old grief

Deep inside it’s always my time
All around it’s only a world no one owns
Deep in heart it’s always my time
Searching for a true relief
Finding life will be your first
Last one’ll be your death

Cry of a restless soul

[Solo: Trascendental Protagonist]
[Solo: Equilibrian Epicurius]

Hunting breeze of wasted bliss I am
For me and you I will catch it
In the dusk of banished mist you’ll hear a waning moan

Cry of a restless soul
