Horn Project announces debut album “Illusions Of Maya”

Italy based black metal Horn Project has announced that his debut album “Illusions Of Maya” will be released on October, 9th via Planet K Records. 

Horn Project is a melodic black metal solo project started in 2018. Horn Project lyrically deals with spiritual philosophical aspects and mythology.

After a 6 year guitar break and a 1000 km walk through Spain, nature gave Elmar Schölzhorn (project mastermind) back his creativity and led him to pick up the instrument again. Starting out as a simple acoustic song for fun, Elmar has been offered by his friend Christian W. (Virial) to mix Elmar‘s future songs and doing drum programming. The Horn Project started to reveal its path. After 3 years all the tracks were written and, when Elmar met Max Careri (Organic) in 2019,
he found the fitting voice for the vision he had in mind. Everything fell in place. The album was recorded in early 2021 and
mastered by Hannes Grossmann (Mordor Sound Studios).Horn Project’s lyrics combine spiritual and philosophical aspects, incorporating mythology and personal matters.

The artwork was designed by Elmar Schölzhorn and implemented by Samuel Stelzer.
