ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DEEP HORIZON is a dynamic and ambitious musical journey, that continues Moshers path of synthesizing a diverse range of musical influences under the banner of contemporary progressive metal with conceptual digital art and introspective, evocative lyrics. Built upon a strong foundation crushing guitar tones, subtle odd meter rhythms, ambient keyboard sounds, and powerful vocal melodies - courtesy of Wind Wraith/Live After Death/Inner Strength singer Scott Oliva - DEEP HORIZON rises from a world where progressive rock and atmospheric soundscapes converge. His strong vision makes for another distinguished artistic statement.

In addition to arranging, composing, and performing all the music on this self-produced CD, Scott works the boards as his own public relations and distribution manager. His creative vision is further solidified in his striking and symbolic artwork that serves as a visual reference point for the lyrics themes alluded to on Deep Horizon. Previous CD's include Inferno (2004), Virtuality (2001) and Ambient Earth (1996.)

Deep Horizon sounds Great!
It sounds Great! I concur it is the most straight-forward and 'heaviest' so far. The new vocalist adds a little something. It seems a bit more 'song' oriented, which is good too. As always the packaging and production are top-notch.

Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - E - Zine

certainly capable of creating some astonishing, enjoyable and moving Progressive
Scott Mosher is not only the Creative Director of the Design Studio, but also the proprietor (head honcho, bossman, the big guy, el Capitan, the Shaman, design guru, the anti-CEO) of The Ambient Mind music label which serves as a record label and distribution base for his musical output. As a musician/composer who's been plying his trade in the realm of sonic servitude for, well... quite a number of years, He has had the opportunity to release 4 CD's of experimental, progressive music that runs the gamut from heavy progressive metal to tranquil, atmospheric soundscapes. If we cruise on overand check out song samples from his various CD's, we'll notice a distinct musical evolution (and, one can hope, a marked improvement.) Throughout his secondary career as a self-financed musician, he thinks he has made enough progress that we - the potential listener - will find distinguishes his musical vision from others. In His creative exploits, He often employ a combination of elements, techniques and influences that pulls inspiration from the past yet looks forward to the future. The end result is an evocative mix of sometimes disparate musical genres and artistic motivation into an invigorating, dramatic whole. One could use the term experimental but Scott Mosher consider his vision dynamic, progressive and modern. Well, let´s talk about genres and styles as Symphonic Progressive Metal, Melodic Metal with touchs of the best and Atmospheric Progressive Rock, including epic compositions, think about that, because you can’t imagine how it must sound together, I must admit that it sounds amazing, certainly capable of creating some astonishing, enjoyable and moving Progressive Music. Scott Mosher knows, how to create guitar and synth sounds, showing his versatility with a tasteful and soulful guitar solos that send the music into outer space. Another important highlights are the vocals from Scott Oliva, he has a very powerfull and a majestic voice, that deserves all our attention. If you want some good references, the music from Scott Mosher, on this album, is a mix of the power from legendary bands as "Uriah Heep", "Rush", "Whitesnake", "Deep Purple" and "Rainbow" with the particular combination of the moder musical elements such as "Ayreon", "Riverside" and "Sylvan", with the orchestral arrangements from "Alan Parsons". "Deep Horizon" All music composed, arranged and performed by Scott Mosher, all vocals and vocals harmonies performed by Scott Olivia. Music recorded at Nice Guy studios by Scott Mosher, vocals recorded at Pat Cave studios and Vice studios by Scott Olivia. Produced by Scott Mosher. A special and particular attention to and my favourite songs are: "Deep Horizon", "A Path Of Pride" and "In Visible Darkness" are a fascinating and quite hypnotic compositions which combines a multiple instrumental lines, while "Light Years", "Turning Away", "Falling Down", "Re-Engineering The Mind" and "The Space Between Lives" takes you on a pompous musical journey. The main musicians on Scott Mosher band are: Scott Mosher - Guitars, Keyboards and Programming, Scott Olivia - All Vocals and as a gueast appearance Todd Corsa - Addtional Guitar on "Deep Horizon" and "Re-Engineering The Mind". Amazing, brilliant and indispensable work, highly recommendable...

AMBIENT INDEED!!!
But not just ambient, this album rocks. It's very accessible and catchy, but with several listens(especially on headphones)...the many layers and nuances that Scott M. incorporates come through. It really grew into a great album for me. Scott Oliva is a great vocalist, quite similar to Geoff Tate...but not a clone by any means. He can get a good growl(not death of course) in the throat and compliments the music nicely. Scott M. does create a great dark atmosphere and makes some social, political, and environmental statements in a vague but understandable way.

As far as songs, I'll stick with the highlights for the sake of brevity. The title track is excellent, great flow with crunch and ambient keys backing. A Path of Pride is a good rocker and Oliva shines here. Turning Away is another highlight that rocks away while Light Years is a bit more subdued, but has a great mood and between the lines message. The instrumental, Re-Engineering the Mind is great...being as much a fan of instrumentals as songs with vocals, this album works great for me with many extended musical passages. The last 3 songs are probably the best for me, Falling Down and Zero Hour really rock, great guitar and vocals on both. The last track has a cool ambient flow, reminds me a bit of The Gathering's later works...but still heavier yet. Just a nice atmosphere, I'll make an assumption that it has to do with the lives affected by 9-11 and oddly enough...it's exactly 9:11 on the timer.

Excellent album, highly recommended! Great work Scott and Co.

Prognosis

Deep Horison is an album of operatic, melodic Metal Prog.
Deep Horison is the first CD by Scott Mosher I got to listen to. Checking out reviews of his previous albums, I read names like Rush and Alan Parsons as references. Well on Deep Horison I hear none of that. Deep Horison is an album of operatic, melodic Metal Prog. Lead singer Scott Oliva has a very powerfull voice and he uses it in full capacity. David Coverdale could give a relative idea of what to expect from him. Except for the singing, Scott Mosher is at the helm for this album, being composer, arranger and performer. The result is an excellent album that merits multiple listens. Not a dull moment on Deep Horison and fans of the heavier stuff by Ayreon should really get into this CD. I will also add that the environmental linked concept of the album touches a chord with me and that the booklet is of high quality. If you are into operatic, melodic heavy Prog, I highly recommend that you check Scott Mosher out.

Progressive World - Richard Zywotkiewicz

This CD is a muscular, powerful symphony brimming with self-confidence, directio
Scott Mosher is one of the few American artists today that can challenge European heavies like Arjen Lucassen in the arena of heavy prog rock. His new CD Deep Horizon takes him one step further into the battleground. The work is a muscular, powerful symphony brimming with self-confidence, direction and articulation. Mosher's earlier work seemed more like a space-rock version of Rush, but after changing vocalists to Scott Oliva on this release, Mosher's sound has also evolved. My guess would be a mix of old and new Ayreon, with a bit of early nineties Eloy thrown in for good measure. It's a very European sound and his influences are deeply rooted. As well, Mosher has carefully crafted a piece of work that steers clear of current prog-rock clichés. Mosher himself describes his music as an ambitious and evocative hybrid of modern, guitar-driven metal and atmospheric progressive rock.

The title track, which opens the CD, says it all, with deep chunky riffs floating on swirling synths. "Breaking Point" leans more to a Rush sound, while "Path Of Pride" builds heavy riffs upon the ambient textures of say, Hawkwind, before erupting into a vintage Ayreon symphony. Each song that follows blends heavy, mid-tempo riffs with soaring lead guitar; all interspersed with swirling ambient moments in a melodic blend of music that holds its own with the best of them. Even the digital drum tracks, usually a deterrent for this listener, sounds powerful, forward; not unlike the great work found on Eloy's RA release.

Something should be said about the packaging on this CD. Mosher is also a graphic artist and his CDs are packed with stunning artwork. Deep Horizon's packaging is almost worth the price alone. Like always, Mosher provides a healthy hour's dose of great music without faltering. Previous works were amongst my favorites of the year. He does most of the work himself and releases an album every couple of years. The hard work shows. His catalogue is consistent and always sounds fresh. If you have not heard Mosher before, this is a great place to start and you can then work backwards through his catalogue. If you know his work, this is no less and no greater than previous releases. Deep Horizon is clean, precise, well-produced and perfect fodder for heavy prog enthusiasts.

While available elsewhere, you can buy directly from the artist for a mere $10, the best investment of the year IMO.

Music Street Journal

Hard-edged prog... This disc is a must have!
With Scott Mosher's latest release he continues a trend of producing extremely potent metallic progressive rock. It's amazing how he can continue to put out one album after another without any weak tracks or losers. If anything Mosher's songwriting and instrumental prowess seem to improve with each new outing. Vocalist Scott Oliva is simply incredible here, standing on an even keel with the best of the best. If you like your prog with a hard edge, or are a fan of progressive metal, this disc is a "must have." You just can't go wrong with it.

Outside the radar and worthy of it
It's the birthing of a thousand electric rebel children; a gathering of angels and their uprising; the scaling of mountains; a squadron of army tanks going into battle; scattered rays of sun on the dawn of a new day; a legion of brutal warriors commencing in hand-to-hand combat…it soars, it sprints, it warns, it celebrates...Rocks made of electric guitars and drums plummet into a lake, crashing the surface and causing electronic ripples followed by a torrential musical downpour. Hear it and you feel it.
