Unleashing the third studio album "Vertigo" in Europe last December via Rockshots Records, Italian symphonic metal act Sound Storm announced the album will be officially released in North America on October 13th. Digital and CD album pre-orders for North America available on Amazon at this location.

Check out our review of the album over at this location.

In celebration of the release on North American shores, the Italian opus masters have teamed up with MetalUnderground.com for the exclusive world premiere for the new video clip "Forsaken," which was filmed during the band's performance at the 2016 Lucca Comics and Games, one of Europe's largest comic cons.

Check out the clip in the player below.

"Vertigo" was produced in the Netherlands at Sandlane Recording Facilities by Joost Van Den Broek (Epica, Ayreon, Xandria) and is something more than a metal album, the music has a cinematic purpose. The overall concept of “Vertigo” is a Victorian - steam punk story, firstly based on Dante’s Inferno idea and then developed to a more psychological/introspective tale. Gabriel is the main character of the story, an unsuccessful composer who becomes a scientist, starting a war against his troubled mind and forcing himself to destroy everything beloved. The only handhold seems to be a mystic dragonfly, leading Gabriel among the floors of a huge spiral staircase.

MetalUnderground.com is proud to present "Forsaken":

In additional news, those in Europe will be able to see Sound Storm's live musical as the band enjoys a massive use of cinematic elements (video, fireworks, pyros, led lights etc) to transform the fiction into reality.
