Brainstorm is a German power metal band, formed in 1989 by guitarists Torsten Ihlenfeld and Milan Loncaric, and drummer Dieter Bernert. The band features lead singer Andy B. Franck, who is also famous for his other band, Symphorce. They are known to play a somewhat darker style of music than most power metal groups. This is their brand new album “Memorial Roots (Re-Rooted)”. A remake of their debut album in 2009.
This re-release of the debut by Brainstorm comes with ten tracks of which quite some are remixes. The music is fast and thriving. Each song is marching forward with its rhythm and pulls you along. Loud and strong, the music is grabbing your attention and will not let go until the last note has ceased. Each song includes strong lyrics that are definitely worth listening closely. So go ahead and dive into the music of Brainstorm.
“Memorial Roots (Re-Rooted)” might just be a revived version of an album from 2009, but it does not sound old or touched up. Instead it carries its own spirit and mood. With melodies that pull you into the world of Brainstorm. So let the music take you away and get this amazing power metal album now.
