Midnight Ghost cover artwork & tracklisting!

German power metal band BRAINSTORM proudly announces the release of their new album, “Midnight Ghost”, scheduled for release on September 28th.
The band’s already 12th studio album is seemingly forging into something special. Vocalist Andy B. Franck comments: “Midnight Ghost” is the album we always wanted to create for our fans – and ourselves. Every song, the sound, the cover artwork… it feels perfect to us! It all has such an incredible power, which is hard to describe. For me it’s definitely one of our best albums and I’m confident that we can reach a new Brainstorm level with “Midnight Ghost” now. We can’t wait to bring this to the stages!”

“Midnight Ghost” was produced by Seeb Levermann (Orden Ogan, Rhapsody Of Fire), the cover artwork was created by Gyula Havancsak (Accept, Stratovarius).

BRAINSTORM to enter studio soon!

Good news from the BRAINSTORM camp: one of Germany’s premiere metal bands will enter the Greenman Studios to record their upcoming new album with producer Sebastian Seeb Levermann (ORDEN OGAN, Rhapsody Of Fire). The album will be titled “MIDNIGHT GHOST”, a release is scheduled for September and the tour will start in January 2019.

Vocalist Andy B Franck comments:
“I think people will realize right away that we took enough of time to deliver a special album, our 12th overall by the way, this time. The songs sound very intense, fresh, heavy and aggressive – even after listening to the material for so long now. Our 12th album, so we will record 12 songs and then decide which of these finally end up on the album. We are happy that we were able to secure the services of Seeb, who was our #1 choice and will take us to the limit. We’re so looking forward to work with him – also because we feel that “MIDNIGHT GHOST” will become a very special album. Stay tuned for updates, folks!” ..

Cancelling 2017 activities

(English translation below)

“Hi Leute,

heute leider eine etwas unerfreuliche Nachricht für uns alle: Dieter’s Arzt hat bzgl seines Sehnenrisses und der anschließenden Operation heute sein Veto eingelegt, so dass wir alle Live Aktivitäten für die letzten zwei Monate dieses Jahres absagen müssen. Sehr gerne hätten wir mit Euch gefeiert, gesungen und die Gläser geleert, aber Dieters Gesundheit steht an erster Stelle. Den Heilungsprozess will niemand gefährden um nicht eine noch längere Pause zu riskieren.
Anfang 2018 stehen die Aufnahmen zu unserem neuen Album an und wir sind uns heute schon sicher, mit voller Brainstorm-Power und mit brandneuem Material eure Köpfe in gewohnter Weise freipusten zu können.
HORNS UP und bis bald… mit jeder Menge News bzgl Album, Tour und Festivals!
Metal to the maxxx ”

Hi guys,

Unfortunately, a slightly unpleasant news for all of us today: Dieter’s doctor has vetoed his torn tendon and the subsequent operation, so we have to cancel all live activities for the last two months of this year. We would have loved to have celebrated, sung and emptied our glasses with all of you, but Dieter’s health comes first. Nobody wants to endanger the healing process and risk an even longer break.
At the beginning of 2018 we will record our new album and today we are already certain that we will be able to blow your minds as usual with full Brainstorm-Power and brand new material.
HORNS UP and see you soon … with lots of news regarding the album, tour and festivals!
Metal to the maxxx
