Friends, you didn’t see this coming, but be assured: it sounds killer!

In the past few months, German power metallers BRAINSTORM have extensively “reworked” their 2009 album “Memorial Roots”. The band’s longtime engineer Achim Köhler was hired to do a complete “remix” of the album and for the first time ever now all tracks of the “Memorial Roots” sessions (besides the regular album songs there were different bonus tracks on the Digipak, Vinyl and Japanese pressing back then) are featured on this brand new release. “Memorial Roots (Re-Rooted)” comes as Digipak, out September 16th.

Pre-order here:

The band states:

“Seven years after the original release of “Memorial Roots”, we are incredibly proud to finally heed the call of our fans and give one of our most important albums a total “makeover”. This album holds many memories, we love these songs and are confident that the “polishing” (completely new mix) makes this new edition of “Memorial Roots” a great experience for every BRAINSTORM fan.

Many “Memorial Roots” songs are part of our Live set list ever since. Over the years we received a lot of fan feedback regarding this release especially. Many of you told us that you like the songs but overall wish the album to sound more powerful and aggressive.

For all BRAINSTORM members, being close to our fans is an integral part of what the band is about since day one. And so we are more than happy to give you what you asked for: in collaboration with our longtime-engineer Achim Köhler and our label AFM Records we took on this exciting project – to make the album sound like it deserves! “Memorial Roots” was a very important time for us; not only because it was the first release for the current line-up. We’ve toured Mexico for the first time back then, as well as many festivals in Europe and the US.

We love what we do and we do what we love. That’s why we are so proud today to give you “Memorial Roots (Re-Rooted”).

This one’s for YOU… (and your neighbors)… SO PLAY IT LOUD!

Andy & Todde”

5 OUT OF 5 METAL FISTS!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

BRAINSTORM – Germany’s unwavering Power Metal band BRAINSTORM have released their eleventh studio album, this past January, via the mighty AFM Records. This new album’s title is Scary Creatures and the front cover artwork is 100% Metal! Just stare at that album cover for a few seconds, whoa!

The powerful vocals of Andy B. Franck is one amazing reason to buy this album; he can hit the hight notes with the very best of them. The speedy, immensely entertaining and melodic guitar talents of Torsten Ihlenfeld and Milan Loncaric are another HUGE reason to buy Scary Creatures. Unreal. The rhythm section of Antonio Ieva on bass and Dieter Bernert on drums only enhances the maximum Power Metal bliss I’ve been enjoying from this new BRAINSTORM release. Yes, that’s maximum Power Metal bliss!

What a gifted band BRAINSTORM is. There honestly is no filler moments on Scary Creatures, in my Metal opinion. This is a Power Metal album that has excited me from beginning to end! BRAINSTORM has taken me on a non-stop ride into Power Metal paradise! From the title track to Sky Among The Clouds, I honestly cannot believe how intense this album freaking ROCKS!! I will be playing this BRAINSTORM album forever, my Metal brethren!

If you’re a Power Metal loyalist and believe Helloween, Manowar, Doro, Iron Savior and Primal Fear are all gifts from the Metal Gods, you will no doubt become a true believer in BRAINSTORM; that is if you haven’t already. Metal be thy name. – Stone

BRAINSTORM “On The Spur Of The Moment” – Sophomore Album On AFM Records Releasing In North America On November 8th, 2011

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, Power Metal, power metal bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Following the band’s first album under the AFM banner with 2009’s lauded Memorial Roots, German Power Metal kings BRAINSTORM will set loose their sophomore full-length for the label with the North American release of On The Spur Of The Moment on November 8th. An AFM label priority, the newest product of this fine German export — the band’s ninth full-length release to date — On The Spur Of The Moment is an incredible Power Metal album, that more than ever emphasizes the exceptional status of BRAINSTORM within the diehard Power Metal communities of the world.

Showcasing the band’s musicianship on all levels, the record takes their majestic Power Metal energy to greater heights with an incredibly layered ten anthems, recorded by Axel Heckert in Ludwigsburg, Germany’s Studio 22. BRAINSTORM‘s tight-knit lineup of vocalist Andy B. Franck, guitarists Torsten Ihlenfeld and Milan Loncaric, bassist Antonio Ieva and drummer Dieter Bernert remains solid.

Stone Says: God as my Metal witness, BRAINSTORM has released an optimal dosage of potent Power Metal with On The Spur Of The Moment. I’ve given this new album a couple of listens already and I’m convinced BRAINSTORM shall be a Power Metal force to reckon with for a very, very long time. Buy On The Spur Of The Moment and don’t be left in the dark. Missing out on a premier Power Metal band such as BRAINSTORM is not an option you want to take. Metal be thy name.

On The Spur Of The Moment – Track Listing:

01. Below The Line

02. In The Blink Of An Eye

03. Temple Of Stone

04. In These Walls

05. Still Insane

06. Dark Life

07. No Saint – No Sinner

08. Where Your Actions Lead You To Live

09. A Life On Hold

10. My Own Hell
