Metal / Alternative / 'Grunge' from Maple Ridge BC
Contact DetailsKristin Eccles
What do you get when you mix alternative, grunge, metal, a fistful of emotion, and an ounce of dedication? You get the lethal combination that can only be known by two words, Halo Horizon.
In the late summer of 2003 Ty Kingston, vocalist and lead guitarist, released the album "Run Away", but the following winter found himself in the company of two other very talented musicians, Tyler Robinson (rhythm guitar/backup vocals), and Keenan Holness (bass guitar/ backup vocals). After placing 3rd in the semi finals of Supernova's Last Band Standing competition in October of 2004, the Halo Horizon family was complete when Cody Yates (drummer/percussion) joined the band.
Now complete, and rocking the Vancouver scene, you could say that Halo Horizon has made an impression on every ear that’s heard a note, every eye that’s taken a glance, and every mind that they've had the privilege to touch.
In the summer of 2004 Halo Horizon recorded their first EP, Glory=Temporary. The response the band received after its release was dynamite. Their loyal fans, and ever growing fan base continue to support and promote Halo Horizon on a daily basis. With the new website up and running, and a street team on the go, more Halo fans are eager and enthusiastic to spread the word about the up and coming hard hitters from the small town of Maple Ridge, B.C.
In January of 2005 the Croatian Cultural Centre was found packed with many fans of the local music scene for the Finals of Supernova's Last Band Standing Competition. It was evident that there were a lot of Halo fans in the crowd, from the black t-shirts with Halo Horizon written dead centre, to the screams and chants of the bands name before their set, to the words “Cold And Hungry" written on the chests of three die hard fans revealed during the show, proved to the audience that Halo fans dominated the crowd. After the short but extremely impressive set the boys in Halo Horizon took home 2nd place that night, proving to themselves, their fans, and all of Vancouver that they have what it takes to get to the top.
"These boys rawk the place every time! Crowd smasher’s like "Cold and Hungry" and "Under my Skin" give purpose for their fans to witness the Halo hit the Horizon! It's a pleasure to work with them inside and outside of Supernova. They are professional on stage and off," says Kevin Bunting of Supernova Entertainment. "Halo is about to put Maple Ridge on the map!"
