Brainstorm – “On The Spur Of The Moment”

“On The Spur Of The Moment”
(AFM Records)

Wow, these dudes have been goin’ since the late 80s when old school power metal was in. Somehow they’ve managed to survive on the German circuit all these years and still with most of their original line up intact! I guess they are one of these timeless bands having taken 8 years to release their debut and despite coincidentally having now released their 8th album in “On The Spur Of The Moment”, haven’t really grown in terms of popularity. Still, their music has given songs like ‘My Own Hell’ are almost symphonic whilst ‘Still Insane’ is a pleasant power ballad complete with some excellent dual melodic guitarwork from founders Torsten Ihlenfeld and Milan Loncaric. However, Brainstorm still prove they are true to their roots when it comes to the power thrash of ‘In The Blink Of An Eye’ or the heavy chugging ‘Dark Life’, proving their is still plenty if life in these guys, even if they don’t actually live it on the spur of the moment.
