Stormhunter are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of heavy, power and speed metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "An Eye For An I"
A very melodic and heavy sound starts off the album along with some solos that are also a huge part of all of the songs as well as demonstrating a great amount of melody, talent and skill in each track and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the music also bring s in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the heaviness of thrash metal.
When vocals are added into the music they are very melodic sounding power metal vocals but have more of an aggressive edge than most bands of this genre and the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's but has a production that gives the music more of a modern day feeling and all of the songs have a very vintage German power metal sound to them but with more of an American style of heaviness and all of the songs stick to a heavy style and there is never a soft or weak moment to be heard anywhere on the recording.
Stormhunter takes the most melodic and heaviest style of heavy, power and speed metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Battles and War.
In my opinion Stormhunter are a very great sounding mixture of heavy, power, and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Among The Blind" "Tortured Mind" "Of Knights And Men" and "Spring Is In The Air". 8 out of 10.
