Control the Storm are a UK based melodic-metal band who deliver an extremely high-energy stage show coupled with hook-laden, catchy songwriting.
Following on from their ‘Beast Inside’ album of 2015, the six-piece band, led by the voice and captivating presence of front woman Firouzeh, delivered the upbeat single ‘Follow Me’ and second album ‘Forevermore’ in 2019.
The album launch party was held during the band’s return to the Bloodstock Festival in August 2019 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 leading to a main stage performance at the WinterStorm festival in Troon last November.
The band’s latest album ‘Forevermore,’ a dynamic journey of melodic metal, has been receiving excellent reviews worldwide.
From epic opener ‘Darkest Fantasy’ the album takes the listener through a variety of musical stories and tales (including World War II, The Garden of Eden, Social Media and Egyptian Curses) before culminating in the thirteen-minute title track, which manages to mix Celtic metal, bagpipes, immortals, waltzes and Robert Burns into one coherent story.
Forevermore is available to buy via the band's online store:
“Control the Storm 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 - and I highly recommend the experience!”
