Even though A Coming Storm was already published by the band itself in May 2010, the album will now reach a wider audience due to the fact that the band has finally found a distributor who brings their ´baby´ to the market. Winterstorm formed in 2008 and already their bandname embodies two things, influences of the cold north and power metal. That´s exactly what the guys from Germany play, mixed with Viking, Folk and elements from medieval music. After a long search, Alexander Schirmer became the band´s new singer in 2009.

Winterstorm remind me a lot of Kamelot and maybe I can even hear some Hammerfall influences, too, which are, however, not of such a high quality. Especially, in low vocal ranges, Alexander Schirmer´s voice simply falls flat. He can´t fulfil the requirements that it takes to come even close to the voice of Roy Khan (Kamelot). Well, he´s not supposed to be a copy but still... Musically, Winterstorm are not that bad and their compositions are eclectic and sophisticated. However, somehow it seems as if I have heard everything way too many times before or maybe there are just too many similar bands around? The song Winterhumppa when sung in Finnish could´ve easily come from Finntroll, too. Friends of power metal, see or hear it for yourselves and decide whether Winterstorm meet your demands or not.
