Prosthetic Records proudly introduces Sweden’s HORNDAL and their debut album, ‘Remains’.
Distinctly Scandinavian; the band fuses the driving rhythms unique to the best of Swedish forward-thinking hardcore whilst preserving the venom of their punk scene alongside the heaviness of the country’s finest. But it’s in the song-writing that HORNDAL really excel; effortlessly weaving their narrative of urban decay into their dynamic and immediate fist-to-the-face anthems.
‘Remains’ tells the true horror story of the devil’s destruction of their hometown of Horndal in the 1970’s. A small, industrial centre found amongst the woods of Sweden - the steel mill which was the lifeblood of the community was threatened with closure. This was dramatised in protest as social allegory and depicted the devil casting his shadow over the town to send their exploited workers to an early grave. Sadly, the story came true…the livelihood of the people was indeed closed down and the town was left for dead. Long live Horndal.
This debut album follows on from their warmly received debut EP, which they recorded with the legendary Steve Albini (Big Black / Shellac). Leading into the new record, HORNDAL have played across Scandinavia with the likes of The Bronx and Victims, amongst others.

HORNDAL, 'ROSSEN' MUSIC VIDEO, PREMIERING NOWMay 10, 2021
Sweden's HORNDAL are today premiering a new music video for Rossen via Decibel Magazine, with an accompanying interview. Taken from their recently released sophomore album, Lake Drinker, the animated video was put together by Kalle Haglund (Bruto Studio). Rossen's stark warning against big tech and tale of industrial decline is captured with unnerving and captivating aplomb through the high octane visual, as a solitary figure metaphorically embodies Lake Drinker's real life tragedy. Lake Drinker is out now via Prosthetic Records.
