BRAINSTORM - On The Spur Of The Moment

This is the new album of the German Power Metal band, and release by release, they show that they set new higher standards on their works. Of course the band is playing Power Metal, melodic and groovy enough, but there's enough variety here so that the listener will find enough things to keep his mind busy. And if you count also the dark atmosphere you have an album that stands high above the average. The songs are well written, with many interesting ideas and the band is exploring them to the best way possible. Andy B. Franck is giving the performance of his lifetime, but so are the other members of the band, pushing Brainstorm to a higher level. What's more amazing is that they manage to evovle with each record, and this is also happening here. Melodies are plenty and well implemented through the album, and enhance the whole result without sacrificing the atmosphere. The production is also excellent, heavy and clear enough and is another big plus for the album. The album is full of well written songs, nice melodic lines, excellent vocals and musicianship, the well known German rhythm section, all wrapped up into a shinny and powerful pack. If you are a fan of the band, then this is an album you must have. Until their next one.
