Horusset are the 3-piece Hard Rock/Metal heavyweights from Napier,
New Zealand. Heavy riffs, wailing solo's, thundering bass and heart
pounding drums are what you can expect when you watch Horusset live.
The bands high energy stage show has earnt them a reputation as one
of the most explosive live acts in the country.
The members joined together in a previous band called 'Midnight
Metal Symphony' in 2008, and were already touring around NZ when 2
of the 5 members left. In 2009, influenced by Rock & Metal legends
such as Pantera, Megadeth, Skid Row & Alice & Chains, the remaining
3 members refined the musical direction of the band and changed the
name to 'Horusset'.
With the old singer leaving, Charlie Wallace, the bands Guitarist
and Song-Writer, had to step up to the plate and become the Vocalist
as well. With Jevon Quirk (Bass) and Matt Hughes (Drums) the 3 piece
quickly found their feet and immediately began playing shows around
the country, sharing the stage with some of NZ's top names in music.
In November 2010 the band entered and won the City Showcase New
Zealand Festival beating out some of NZ’s music heavyweights. This
gave them plane tickets to fly half way around the world and will
see them touring Europe in 2012.
The band recorded their first official release in mid-2011 in the
form of a 3-track EP, and celebrated the release by touring their
home country once again. The songs are regularly played on 'The Axe
Attack' on NZ's top Rock Radio Station 'The Rock FM'.
"Complete with thick guitar arrangements, tight punchy bass
drums that sound as though they’re knocking on
these three are intent on blasting
your eardrums to pieces with
their time honoured
mash up of hard rock and metal...
plenty to indicate that
Horusset has the goods to go the distance.
Polished, precise, passionate and with plenty of punch."
- John Paul
The band are going from strength to strength and continue to build
their strong following with every performance. Currently working on
Music Videos and new material for their next release scheduled early
2012, the sky is the limit.
