Review: 80/100 @ PoM.dk
Ever wanted to find out what inspired a particular song?

Was it based on personal experience or simply passive observation?

What happened in the recording studio or on stage to make one song sound different from the rest?

These are just some of the question bands and musicians attempt to answer in Line 'em Up - the newest page of The Power Of Metal.Dk.

This is where your favourite bands comment on their albums, track by track, because as someone once said, “Ideas are the building blocks of ideas”.



Here’s a chance for you to tell our readers about your new release, ‘Grengus’. But could you please start off by introducing the readers to Horn Of The Rhino?

We formed the band in 2004. Sergio Robles at bass, Julen Gil at drums and I, Javier Gálvez at guitars/vocals. We have been releasing material since 2006: one demo and four full lengths. The first two were under the Rhino moniker; then, due to legal stuff, we choose to modify it to HORN OF THE RHINO. We release our material through Doomentia records, and had played lots of shows and festivals with lots and lots of bands, just like everyone else.

And now onto ‘Grengus’ - track-by-track! What inspired you, which topics are you dealing with, what do you want to express with the songs etc.

Oh, we don't like so much to dissect our songs that way. Let's say for this record we wanted a more angry and suffocating atmosphere. Lyrically it is based on a rough time in my life, a hard period that I need to get rid of. But there's also our favorite topics like sex, apocalypse, talking goats ruling the Earth...Happy stuff, as you can see!

Tell us a bit about the artwork – who made it etc. and how important do you feel it is to have a cool artwork?

Our two previous record covers were done by Rafa Garrés, so there's no reason to stop using his art. The concept always comes from the band and then he does magic. Usually he works for Marvel and DC doing covers and occassionally comic books.

A great cover artwork is very important to us. We see so much crap out there and we don't understand how bands don't worry about that. Think your music's worth it? Then get a good package, for fuck's sake!
