"An AFM label priority, the newest product of this fine German export -- the band's ninth full-length release to date -- On The Spur Of The Moment is an incredible power metal album, that more than ever emphasizes the exceptional status of Brainstorm within the diehard power metal communities of the world. Showcasing the band's musicianship on all levels, the record takes their majestic power metal energy to greater heights with an incredibly layered ten anthems, recorded by Axel Heckert in Ludwigsburg, Germany's Studio 22. Brainstorm's tight-knit lineup of vocalist Andy B. Franck, guitarists Torsten Ihlenfeld and Milan Loncaric, bassist Antonio Ieva and drummer Dieter Bernert remains solid."

"Since February 25th we are back together in the studio to work on the new album. We decided to record it with Axel Heckert in the Studio 22 in Ludwigsburg.
