Release date: 28 August, 2012
Playing time: 57:45

If you are looking for a band carrying the torch for the long and proud Italian symphonic power metal scene, then look no further, because Sound Storm stays within the safe boundaries established by the forefathers of Italian symphonic power metal. And their success or downfall relies very much on whether or not the fans are willing to accept the fact that they bring nothing new to the genre...

And to be honest; it is very hard to introduce new sounds to this well established genre and if you buy a symphonic power metal album then you know what to expect and really don't want to be challenged at all. What you see it what you get.

And what they present is well written, performed and produced metal that should satisfy even the most hungry symphonic power metal fan. The album is packed with fast power metal, many layers of thick keyboard sounds, huge choirs, classical influences, a female vocalist do appear and there is also you occasional resting point here and there... so all in all a solid piece of symphonic power metal.

But beyond that there's really not much to say: solid!
