Hailing from Deutschland: "Storm Warrior" are a journeyman quartet which was formed in 1998. They are fronted by co-founder Lars Ramcke who is also one of the two guitarists in the band. Alex Guth is the other guitarist, Yanz Leonhardt is featured on bass and Hendrik Thiesbrummel plays the drums for this Hard-charging "Viking-Metal" band.
Their most recent offering: "Thunder & Steele" Stays true to their roots with a blend of melodic metal harmonies and dark, brooding chants which are sure to please.
Lars Ramcke's vocal stylings conjure memories of "Accept" and "Kreator" which is nicely complimented by the guitars and drums.
Many times, while listening, I found myself favorably reminded of early "Manowar" and "Saxon" from the "Crusader" days.
The album has a good vibe to it.
From the straightforward thrash stylings of tracks like "Metal Avenger" & "Sacred Blade" to the more melodic sounds of "Child Of Fire" it is an all out metal assault which is certain to make you crave good German beer and Octoberfest pretzels!
Overall a good listen!
