Sound Storm was founded in 2002 in Turin, a city in the north west of Italy.The band started composing their own material, with the first three or four tracks finished by the end of 2003.
After two self-released titles (“The Storm is coming…” – Demo, 2005 – and “Northern Wilderness” – EP, 2007 -), in 2008 the band releases the debut album “Twilight Opera” which has got an incredible high quality production, strings section, a 9-pieces choir.
The album has been mastered at Finnvox Studios by Mika Jussila and released worldwide by Rising Records.
In summer 2010 Sound Storm toured Mexico for the first time: the band played 11 gigs across the country getting and incredible success and many hundreds people were attending each show.
In 2012 Sound Storm have signed a worldwide deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their new album ‘Immortalia’.
Over the years the band has developed a very personal blend of Heavy Metal mixed with a theatrical sense of drama, which was internationally recognised with the release of their critically acclaimed debut ‘Twilight Opera’.
This new chapter marks another important milestone for the band, mixing their wide range of influences in a piece of work perfectly balanced between powerful guitars, magnificent symphonic choirs, gothic atmospheres and baroque melodies, which is definitely worth listening to.
Recorded, mixed and mastered at Metal House Studio by Ettore Rigotti (Disarmonia Mundi), ‘Immortalia’ is a stunning concept album on the quest for eternal life, an amazing journey through literature, poetry and history, a collection of songs linked together by the common theme of the immortality of the soul. The evocative artwork was handled by Felipe Machado Franco (Blind Guardian, Rhapsody Of Fire). ‘Immortalia’ has been released August 28th, 2012.
Shortly after the band supported Norwegian Gothic Metal veterans Tristania on their European tour, as well as some Italian shows with Epica and Haggard, plus another European tour with Therion and Arkona at the end of 2013.
Between 2014 and 2015 Sound Storm joined forces with the German Metal Orchestra HAGGARD in the ‘Symphonic Blast’ and ‘Dragonfest’ tours, raiding Europe in 15 succesful shows.
The third chapter “Vertigo” was released at the end of 2016 by Rockshots Records and it marks another important milestone for the band, mixing their wide range of influences in a piece of work perfectly balanced between powerful guitars, magnificent symphonic choirs, gothic atmospheres and refined melodies, which is definitely worth listening to. It was mixed and mastered by the renowned Joost Van Den Broek (Epica, Ayreon, After Forever, etc) at the Sandlane Recording Facilities in The Netherlands.
After being a male-fronted metal band since the beginning, 2018 will always be rememberd as the final evolution of Sound Storm, turning into a 7-members band.
Made up of experienced musicians each bringing their own elements to the music, Sound Storm now feature two different style of vocals both of which are quite different from the previous singers.
