Horna, formerly known as Shadowed, is a Finnish black metal band, formed in 1993 (see 1993 in music). The band has appeared on over thirty releases including splits, demos, EPs, and albums since 1995, using almost as many record labels.


Horna formed in late 1993 under the name Shadowed, formed by vocalist and guitarist Shatraug and guitarist Moredhel.cite web|title=Horna (Fin) - Interview|author=Torsten|publisher=FinalWar|date=2003-07-03|url=http://finalw.fi.funpic.de/main.php?cmd=interviews&datei=horna|accessdate=2008-06-02] The name was changed to Horna when drummer Gorthaur joined the band in 1994. Horna did not start recording until early 1995. The first demo, "Varjoissa", was released in September that year and sold out. In 1996, Nazgul von Armageddon took over vocal duties and the band recorded their first full-length album "Hiidentorni" in January of 1997, resulting in a deal with the Greek label Solistitium Records. The band continued to release albums under this label through June 1998, when Moredhel and bassist Skratt left the band. Bassist Thanatos replaced Skratt soon afterwards, and Moredhel re-joined that August. In 1999, the band signed to Norwegian label Oskorei Productions for a vinyl-only release of the band's third album, "Haudankylmyyden Mailla", and the band released a series of limited vinyl-only EPs and split albums through most of the early 2000s, with full-length studio albums coming out in the latter half of the decade. In 2002, Nazgul von Armageddon left the band, leaving vocal duties to Corvus. In July 2003, it was announced that guitarist Aarni T. Otava had left the group. Horna cited the loss of "dedication" as the reason behind his departure, and revealed that Horna's performance at 2003's Tuska Open Air Metal Festival would be their last with Otava handling guitar duties.cite web|title=HORNA Part Ways With Guitarist|author=|publisher=Blabbermouth|date=2003-07-11|url=http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=13490|accessdate=2008-06-02]

The name "Horna" is Finnish for "abyss" or "hell". It was chosen because, to Shatraug, it sounded harsh and powerful.
