History

The Baffondi brothers, guitarist Stefano Malacarne and bassist Mauro Boggiono formed Event in 1996. The line-up soon also included Michele Fragnelli on keyboards. A singer called Alessandro Formenti answered an advertisement and joined a year later. The group recorded a demo called Altered State and soon changed its name to Event Horizon. Many shows were given and another demo called From Beginning To End was taped. Another demo, called Year: Zero, was issued in 2002. The band suffered a setback when singer Alessandro and pianist Michele left the band. With new singer Girardi in tow the band quickly recorded three demos in succession before signing with Cruz Del Sur. The band’s first album was issued in the spring of 2006. Stefano Malacarne played the album’s leads. Riccardo Rebughini replaced him.

Reviews

EVENT HORIZON - NAKED ON THE BLACK FLOOR - CRUZ DEL SUR  
Event Horizon’s Naked On The Black Floor is a pop/dance album masquerading as a metal CD. There is so much wrong with this and yet, oddly enough, at first listen one might be forgiven for judging the Italians’ album as an acceptable addition to the metal scene. Be it the Iron Maiden-lite riffs, shrilly vocals or the chugging chords Event Horizon might appear metal, although admittedly bad metal, of sorts. Repeat listens elucidate matters however. Be it the intrusive and clumsy keyboards, the dance beat beginning and pervading the song Zero, the plain annoying beat of the throwaway Fragments Of Insanity, the hopelessly light riffs or pots and pan-ish drum sound there is a lot that reeks of the sub-par here. Nearly every song is infested with lightweight chords and poppy backing vocals. Event Horizon is so mind-numbingly bad that one wouldn’t be chided for thinking of it as having all the appeal of a Taco Bell-generated fart in a car. Stay accordingly away. - Ali “The Metallian”
