Sound Storm Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Sound Storm.
Turin (Torino), Italy is more than a city that was the focus of the 2006 Winter Olympics. It is a city rich in history, best known as the home of the “Shroud of Turin,” which has been the subject of religious debate for years. The language (“piemontese”) is still steeped with the Celtic verbiage of its ancient inhabitants (“The Taurini”), who were destroyed by the Romans. A cultural, literary and cinematic center, Turin was the birthplace of chromatography and the Italian cinema. Ironically, this culture has been infused into the city’s symphonic metal scene with acts like Aevum, Phenris, Venice In Vain, and most notably Sound Storm.
Sound Storm was established back in 2002 as a traditional/classic metal band playing covers of Iron Maiden, Manowar and Savatage. At the end of 2003, the band began composing original material resulting in its 2005 demo “The Storm is Coming...” and successor 2007 EP “Northern Wilderness.” In 2009, the band started to define its sound with the stellar debut release “Twilight Opera,” through Rising Works. Once released, the band would begin its epic journey of evolution and now stands at the precipice of releasing one of the finest symphonic records ever, “Immortalia” (see Metal Underground.com’s review at this location).
