Small towns do not always welcome the dark creativity that fuels the soul of heavy metal.   Multi-instrumentalist Justin Pierrot of Enderby, British Columbia — a northwest Canadian town with a population of under three thousand — found himself alone in his musical pursuits and took matters into his own hands.  The result: Stormland, a one-man death metal act that has evolved over decades as Pierrot hones his craft and interests.

Originally conceived in 2003, Pierrot recorded Stormland’s first song with the help of a drummer friend.  After beginning audio engineering studies at the Center for Arts & Technologies Okanagan in 2005, Pierrot was soon able to apply new principles in songwriting, recording, and drum programming to his project.  These early songs were raw, but a kernel of what would become the Stormland sound was there: guitars that went from buzz-saw speed to pile-driving groove on a dime, classic rock-informed soloing, and dynamic death metal vocals.

Fast forward to the present: Stormland has moved to the city of Burnaby, B.C. and is now on the eve of his third release, Songs of Future Wars.  Following 2009’s politically-themed Colbert Made Me Do It demo and 2015’s fantastical True, North, Strong, and Cranky EP, the upcoming full-length is inspired by Pierrot’s love of anime — in particular, the Mobile Suit Gundam metaseries.  Songs of Future Wars’ eight tracks use each pilot or mobile suit to weave personal tales of violence, survival, and psychological damage.

Incident Report: UC-07912267 will be unleashed October 11th, 2019, with the fifth track, a cover of Matthew Wilder’s “Break My Stride” available for streaming soon.  Pre-orders are available on Bandcamp (https://stormland.bandcamp.com), as well as limited “Dossier Edition” CD-Rs and two pairs of custom-painted HG 1/144 scale Gundam Models made by Pierrot/Stormland himself.  Contact Dewar PR for coverage opportunities with this unique and evolving heavy metal artist.
