Brainstorm Reveals New Album Title

German power metal outfit Brainstorm has announced in a recent online message that the name of the band's new studio album will be, "On The Spur Of The Moment." A message from frontman Andy B. Franck reads as follows:

"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. Axel is a huge fan of the band and he will help us to reach a whole new level. The song material we have is again more aggressive than the last songs we had written. For us Memorial Roots was a cool album, but On The Spur Of The Moment will be a BLAST! We are really happy and excited to start recording new material because we cannot hear the old songs anymore… time for something new!"
