Interesting mix there. I love Wig Wam but dislike strongly Stratovarius. I'd like to check these guys out when I get home. Thanks for the tip. Maybe.

i can definately here influences from both bands there (which i both like) but in general alot of euro/scandinavian prog melodic metal. Sounds pretty good though and some catchy songs. Ill listen more later and see if i still like. Production is pretty good too.

Quite a philosophical explanation. The typically male juvenile "Sturm und Drang" phase - as I know it - is chasing after every skirt and trying to drag the chick into the next available bed. :P Wow !! Those were the days !!! :P :P

ok after another listen prob not as good as i first thought but id prob still like to pick it up. most tracks seem to be very Stratovarius-ish, with about 3 or 4 rockier tracks sounding a bit like Wig wam.

 

all in all sounds pretty cool. wonder how a 16 sings like that, and plays those solos.... and how theyd get a deal that young

I'm going to give this one a go today. I heard a bit of it and it sounds okay-ish, if not a little "standard". I will report back soon.

I spun it at lunch. It's okay. Very standard, dime-a-dozen sort of stuff. I didn't mind most the songs, but constantly had the feeling of 'I've heard this all before'. Everything was strategically recycled, I definitely didn't hear any Wig Wam, but fans of Stratovarius might enjoy some of this? I won't spin it again I don't think.

If you search for this "gentleman": Linman from the main page you´ll find the father (Patrik) of the singer from the band (Andre Linman). His dad is involved in the writing and producing of the album. Actually they are all from my hometown and I have met "the dad" on several occasions and even had a couple of drinks with him.

 

"The dad" has been on the music scene since late 80´s (I guess) and still going...eh..."strong". Actually The Sturms recent single Indian is a big hit here at the moment and even I like it.

 

Well I guess nobody really cares 'bout this info so I'm off...

Sturm und Drang (storm and zeal) was a literature movement started by young German writers, including Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who protested cultural environment and society in general. It was the first youth movement ever, so when Henkka’s dad came up with the idea, the guys thought that the name most definitely suited them.

 

i actually quite like Rising Son....i might have to look into this one.

The Sturms' debut have been rereleased as an "International version" with 3 bonus tracks and BOY do they rock or what! :beerbang:

 

1st bonus: Breaking The Law (The Judas Priest song; infact the Sturms was formed after going to a gig by Judas Priest)

2nd bonus: Forever feat. UDO (Yes that UDO from Accept)

3rd bonus: Rising Son - Acoustic (Excellent version)

 

The new version also includes the videos to Rising Son and Indians.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
