Thy sinister werewolf kult of Horna was born in 1993 by Shatraug and Moredhel in Finland (Lappeenranta, South Karelia). The hammer of uncreation, Gorthaur, joined in 1994 and the first release “Varjoissa” was created in 1995. Joined by Satanic Warmaster (prior known as Nazgul) in 1996, Horna set out the course lead by “Hiidentorni” all the way upon the grim splendour of “Sudentaival”. In 2001 Satanic Warmaster was replaced by Corvus unveiling an entirely new era in our existence. In the summer of 2003 we found our lead guitarist Saturnus and the unholy trinity of Shatraug-Corvus-Saturnus was born, a revelation that clouded any previous settlements. During the hardships and struggle of 2006 Saturnus decided to leave the band, but not before completing his part on the new coming full lenght album of 2008. After the 2007 European Tour it was decided to get another guitarist in the line-up again and this time the right man was closer than we could’ve imagined - our long-time bassist Infection. So he got promoted and a new bassist was recruited.
During 2009 Corvus decided to focus more and more on his other band Totalselfhatred and as a result we have no idea if he is coming back to Horna. We could not accept for him to be there when ever he wanted when everyone else was ready to crush forward. A new vocalist has been found from the Tampere black ranks of Hell.
Lyrically Horna ventures from a past of harsh and primitive devil worship to the occult obscurity of today in an atmospheric and poetic direction - more and more in the veins of our emotions, as reflections of our beliefs and passions. Still captured by the darkness of existence, possessed by an interest in all things of the night… Another lingering question is the accusations of being a political band. HORNA has never been and never to be a political band nor do any of the band lyrics have such content. We are satanist, heathen, BLACK METAL. What any ex-members might represent is not what we stand for. For once and all, may it be clear.
