Unleashing their third studio album 'Vertigo' in Europe last December via Rockshot Records, Italian symphonic metallers SOUND STORM have now made the release available in North America officially as of October 13th. Digital and CD album order for North America available on Amazon at https://tinyurl.com/y7fngh4t
'Vertigo' was produced in the Netherlands at Sandlane Recording Facilities with Joost Van Den Broek (Epica, Ayreon, Xandria) and is something more than a metal album, the music has a cinematic purpose. The overall concept of 'Vertigo' is a Victorian - steam punk story, firstly based on Dante’s Inferno idea and then developed to a more psychological/introspective tale. Gabriel is the main character of the story, an unsuccessful composer who becomes a scientist, starting a war against his troubled mind and forcing himself to destroy everything beloved. The only handhold seems to be a mystic dragonfly, leading Gabriel among the floors of a huge spiral staircase. Music video "Forsaken" filmed during the band's performance at the 2016 Lucca Comics and Games, one of Europe's largest comic cons is below.
In additional news, those in Europe will be able to see SOUND STORM's live musical as the band enjoys a massive use of cinematic elements (video, fireworks, pyros, led lights etc) to transform their fiction into reality.
