The band Stormburst was formed in July 2014. The original intention just was to make high quality music, have fun, and do what you believe in and without any musical compromises. No more covers, just self-composed material.
Bass player Kent Jansson (Six Feet Under, Keen Hue, Steam) and guitarist Thomas Hansson (Steam, Coastline) started with singer Lars-Åke ”Plåtis” Nilsson (Keen Hue). To get the special sound that they wanted, they sent the keyboardist Peter Östling (Six Feet Under) a demo, who believed completely into the idea and joined immediately. Later on they recruited the hard hitting drummer Peter ”Zeke” Ytterberg (Keen Hue, Moonshine Highway) to complete the line-up.
The band’s name Stormburst has the intention of uncompromisingly doing what you believe in even if you have a headwind. Even if the wind blows hard in life sometimes, is the love of music in all conditions strong and sustainable. Stormburst is the ability to reflect it with music and lyrics. Their style can be described as Melodic Hard Rock & AOR.
The band is based in the heartland of Sweden, Dalarna, all the songs were written by Kent, Thomas and Lars-Åke. The composing and demo recordings of all tracks were done in the home studio of Lars-Åke in Vansbro to subsequently present them to the rest of the band.
The result, the debut album ‘Raised To Rock‘, was mainly recorded, mixed and mastered at Studio Bakery, Äppelbo by Jonas Tornemalm between January and February 2017. The recordings of strings were made at the Royal College of Music (KMH) in Stockholm during the same period of time.
‘Raised On Rock‘ is a tribute to all musical heroes the members in the Stormburst grew up with.
