Release: 26 May 2017
The band STORMBURST was
formed in July 2014. The original intention just was to make high
quality music, have fun, and do what you believe in and without any
musical compromises. No more covers, just self-composed material.
Bass player Kent Jansson (Six Feet Under, Keen Hue, Steam) and
guitarist Thomas Hansson (Steam, Coastline) started with singer Lars-Åke
”Plåtis” Nilsson (Keen Hue). To get the special sound that they wanted,
they sent the keyboardist Peter Östling (Six Feet Under) a demo, who
believed completely into the idea and joined immediately. Later on they
recruited the hard hitting drummer Peter ”Zeke” Ytterberg (Keen Hue,
Moonshine Highway) to complete the line-up.
The band’s name STORMBURST has the intention of uncompromisingly doing
what you believe in even if you have a headwind. Even if the wind blows
hard in life sometimes, is the love of music in all conditions strong
and sustainable. STORMBURST is the ability to reflect it with music and
lyrics. Their style can be described as Melodic Hard Rock & AOR.
The band is based in the heartland of Sweden, Dalarna, all the songs
were written by Kent, Thomas and Lars-Åke. The composing and demo
recordings of all tracks were done in the home studio of Lars-Åke in
Vansbro to subsequently present them to the rest of the band.
The result, the debut album “Raised To Rock”, was mainly recorded, mixed
and mastered at Studio Bakery, Äppelbo by Jonas Tornemalm between
January and February 2017. The recordings of strings were made at the
Royal College of Music (KMH) in Stockholm during the same period of
"Raised On Rock" is a tribute to all musical heroes the members in the STORMBURST grew up with.
