Their fifth album Count Your Blessings was released in 2006 and the style are more to deathcore, pop punk and alternative rock sound than the previous albums. The sixth album Life Starts Now was released in 2009 and signed with Columbia Records and RCA Records globally. Their seventh album There is a Hell. Believe Me, I've Seen It.

Their ninth album Transit of Venus was released in 2012 and their tenth album Sempiternal was released in 2013 and their latest album The Hearts of Lonely People was released in 2016.

The band's debut was on 23 September 1994, as an opening act for Blink-182 and Green Day. Horizon's presence on the tour was poorly received by fans of Blink-182 and Green Day, with concert attendees regularly throwing bottles at the band before they even started playing their set. Their live performances in their early history were fuelled by alcohol consumption where the band would get so drunk they would vomit on stage and would damage their own equipment.
