Stormrider is a heavy metal band from Manchester, UK. Rooted in NWOTHM and with influences ranging from hard rock and classic heavy metal (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest) to power/thrash (Iced Earth, Kreator, Metallica), the band’s music offers raw, uninhibited power combined with a keen sense of melody.
Since its formation in early 2017, the band slowly but surely have established themselves on the local and North-Western gig circuit by participating in Metal 2 the Masses and one of the biggest local festivals – SOS Festival. Thanks to their live success, in the second half of 2018 they have opened for the likes of Power Quest and Diamond Head and Attica Rage.
In 2018 the band released their debut EP “Heavy Metal Machine” which was well received by fans and critics alike. Consisting of four tracks, the EP is the classic metal sound, combining vibrant guitar work and powerful vocals that display the true essence of the band!
Now the band are launching their new EP “What Lies Within” which they will be heavily promoting and playing shows to support the release over the upcoming months.
“Great sounding guitars captivate with riffs, musical themes and solos. The rhythm section is firmly set, nimble, and full of invention. Everything is well-balanced and entrances with powerful and clear tone -” Heavy Metal Pages
“Heavy Metal Machine” is a combination of speed, adrenaline, raspy voice turning into scream and falsetto, and addictive riffs. It’s a perfect debut and first step on the way to a career – Chaco Primero
