I remember when this project started getting VH1 play and people were like "WTF?"


I guess I can't blame ole Garth for wanting to stretch his musical wings a little, but going the whole "alter ego" route and creating an entirely different persona (complete with a fictional back story) was a little too weird...

He was the Fozzy before Fozzy with the fictional back story and all.


I remember the whole movie rumour as well and I guess I wonder why the label would allow the music to be released without the movie since it was sure to confuse people. I guess there thinking was that when people found out it's Garth Brooks it'll sell like hot cakes. I guess they didn't figure in that his fans didn't want that from him.

Garth Brooks was a big KISS fan growing up. I guess this project was his version of "MUSIC FROM THE ELDER" :whistle:

I didn't think it was all that bad. It shows that the man does have talent but unfortunately his fans are country fans!! But all in all its not that bad.

Just goes to show, 30-50 sumthing country fans won't stand for Sybil-listic qualities in their performers at that time, but today we have Miley "Hannah Montanna" Cyress, which seems to be perfectly acceptable.


And agree with the Fozzy connection and the fact that for what it is/was it is a fair recording. Maybe it would have been better to keep the Garth Brooks fact a bit more of a secret???

    • To tell you the truth, we couldn't agree on a title so I suggested III. It's been three years between every album and this is our third. ; )
    • New album 'III' out May 19 through Pride & Joy Music. Press release: STORMBURST was formed in July 2014 with the intention to make high quality Melodic Hardrock music without any compromises, whatsoever. No more covers so to speak, just all original song material. Bass player Kent Jansson (Six Feet Under, Keen Hue, Steam) and guitarist Thomas Hansson (Steam, Coastline) started out with singer Lars-Åke ”Plåtis” Nilsson (Keen Hue) and to achieve the special sound they were looking for. Keyboardist Peter Östling (Six Feet Under) was sent a demo and pretty much joined immediately.   In late 2019 original drummer Peter Ytterberg quit for personal reasons and was soon replaced by Mr. Pelle Hindén of Eternal (Of Sweden). Stormburst as a band and unit is all about uncompromisingly doing what you believe in, even if you have a headwind. When the wind blows hard in life sometimes (as it really does), the love of music is still in all conditions strong and sustainable. Stormburst has the ability to reflect this with their own music and lyrics and their style can best be described as a combination of traditional Melodic Hardrock & AOR. The band is based in the heartland of Sweden, Dalarna and all members contribute to the song-writing and arrangement process.   Stormburst have released two albums so far: ”Raised On Rock” (2017, AOR Heaven) and “Highway To Heaven” (2020, AOR Heaven).   Now, “III” is the third album by Stormburst which will be released on May 19th, 2023 via Pride & Joy Music.  All songs were written by Nilsson, Hanson, Jansson, Hinden, and Östling and recorded At Studio Plåtis Vansbro and Studio Bakery Äppelbo between December 2022 and February 2023.
