Album Notes
A theatrical explosion on the Portland Metal Scene in 1998, Mission Horus was a 4 piece Sci-Fi metal band which referred to its genre as "Cybercore." Big drums, heavy guitar riffs and spooky synths set amidst post apocalyptic lyrics. Their debut 5 song self titled EP is a must have for fans who enjoy the cool riffs of NWBHM and the mind-fucking alternate universe of current poetry metal acts like Tool. Or if you're into space swashbuckling this is your new favorite CD.

“Sprawling, hellbent cybercore. Dramatic, spooky and pissed!” -Scott Wagner, The Rocket 1998

“Oooh! Scary! It all sounds pretty metal to me, but seeing as how the future is here today, Portland's Mission Horus coat their dark riffage in a fine shellac, resulting in that industrial cyber-sheen that suggests a mad super computer revolting against its human programmers. It's a brain-corroding blast, mixing up granite foundation of Sabbath as produced by Trent Reznor with a little bit of Pantera lurking in the wings. “Doppelganger” finds vocalist Atom Lien spitting words our faster than the ear can decipher them, while carpets of darting synthesizers try and out muscle the gnarly guitars. Call it a draw. “Cyber Christ (Sex Monkey Mix)” is almost comically pretentious, but I can't complain about the ferocity of the attack, which is formidable. -John Chandler, The Rocket. June 24th 1998

An interesting concept at work here: cybernetically-stimulated rockers trying to synthesize a mixture of elctro-pulse palpitations and adrenaline-charged power chordage. No, it's not “torture tech” or any other form of neo-industrial – more like cinematic prog-core, a recombinant form of Voivod and Neurosis. It'll be interesting to see how these locals develop. -Anodyne, June 1998
