BRAINSTORM unleash first single & video with guest singer !

BRAINSTORM is going to release their new album “Wall Of Skulls” on August 20th, 2021. While cover artwork has been revealed and pre-sale already started last week, today we all are about to see the newest creation and first album-appetizer called “Escape The Silence”. Tenacious double-bass drums and powering bass lines, groovy guitar shreds and the uncompromising and recognizable voice of Andy B. Franck make this song a memorable top-notch and hard-hitting vigorous hymn!
But talking about the singer, we should note that a very special guest was able to lay down some lines on the mic for this song. For the first time ever, the band has worked with a guest vocalist who assume a central role in the respective songs. “Escape The Silence” stars Rage’s legendary Peavy Wagner.
Peavy comments on his contribution: “A outrageously great song with a stunning video. It’s an honour for me to be part of that album. Such an excellent track and awesome piece of music!”

Brainstorm to build a “WALL OF SKULLS”!

Brainstorm

Exactly two years after the release of their highly successful latest album “Midnight Ghost”, German power metal masters BRAINSTORM have now entered the “Greenman Studios” of producer Seeb Levermann (Orden Ogan) to work on the successor.

It will be titled “Wall Of Skulls” and is expected to arrive in Summer 2021.
“We really can’t wait to see the songs shaping into their final form over the next weeks during the album recordings”, says guitarist Torsten Ihlenfeld. “The whole songwriting process and the album pre-productions were awesome and we can already say: “If you liked “”Midnight Ghost” you will LOVE “”Wall Of Skulls”!”
