Event Horizon X are a Greek Power Metal band, their music combines influences from various bands like Blind Guardian, Iced Earth and Virgin Steele. “Far across the Wasteland” is the third CD from Event Horizon X, the first one “Fall of Darkness” was released in 2003 and the second one “Along Came the winter” in 2004.

Event Horizon X is a one-man band Michael Rinakaris does everything himself playing the drums, guitars, bass and doing the vocals, he writes all the lyrics, he has produced the album, done all the artwork and even directed the bonus video “Setting Free the Damned”. Respect.

The CD consists of eight tracks and when you are listening to metal anthems like “Sailing Away”, “Leaving Behind (Archon)” or “Far across the Wasteland” you’ll beg for more.

Hopefully the next album will be a lot longer than the 31 minutes “Far across the Wasteland” lasts.
