Brainstorm was founded in 1989 by Torsten Ihlenfeld, Milan Loncaric and drummer Dieter Bernert. The first few years of their life cycle saw the band build a solid groundwork with several demo releases and live appearances. In 1997, the band signed their first record deal and released the self-produced Hungry”album witch received good critics.

Just a year later the band was back in the studio to record their second album Unholy, this time under the aegis of Charlie Bauerfeind and Dirk Schlächter. On the following European tour with Iced Earth all expectations were fulfilled. The band also made the next important step in their career with the addition of new vocalist Andy B. Franck to the band´s ranks.

And that’s how its been for them more or less. And now this month saw the release of their latest album entitled Firesoul. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with this record. At first I was like: not another melodic power metal band, but these chaps proved they could make a good album in that genre. Of course it still has those typical riffs, breaks, sound,….. but it was fun to listen to and that means a lot to me.
