Control the Storm are a UK based melodic metal band who deliver an explosive stage show with a ferocious energy coupled with catchy songwriting.
2019 has already seen the release of their upbeat new single 'Follow Me' and their second album 'Forevermore' - the follow-up to 'Beast Inside' (2015). In July, the band reached and exceeded their Kickstarter campaign goal of £5000 to help fund the album release. The album launch party was held during their return to Bloodstock Open Air festival in August to coincide with their triumphant performance on the Sophie Lancaster stage to a near capacity crowd. Later in August, Control the Storm achieved victory at the Stormbreakers Battle of the Bands final and will now perform on the main stage at Winterstorm festival in Troon during the final weekend of November.
Forevermore is a dynamic journey of Melodic Metal and has been receiving excellent reviews worldwide.
Beginning with the epic opener 'Darkest Fantasy', the album takes you through a variety of subjects including World War II, The Garden of Eden, Social Media, Egyptian Curses and culminates in the 13 minute prog-esqe title track 'Forevermore' - a song that somehow manages to mix bagpipes, immortals, waltzes and Robert Burns into one coherent story.
The album is available to buy via the band's online store: www.controlthestorm.bandcamp.com
"If you haven't yet heard or seen this band - I highly recommend you do!
They are a great British band with the intoxicating frontwoman, Firouzeh, who has a vocal that is both harmonious and descriptive - like a gypsy storyteller!
That, with their powerful and almost orchestral style, will take you on a journey - that's at least what they did to me - and I highly recommend the experience!"
