WINTER STORM

 

At The Robin2 Bilston 16th October 2016.

Tonight I’m feeling very privileged to be in attendance at The Robin2 Bilston in support of the West Midlands based band Winter Storm, who were opening up proceedings for this, the final UK show for the Netherlands based band Stream Of Passion who are bringing their last tour ever, to a close.

Also included in this evening’s line up and main support for all four UK dates were Awake By Design, so all in all, tonight’s event really looked set to be a jewel in the West Midlands crown.

Winter Storm first formed back in 2008 and are the kind of band whose metal is perfectfor all seasons, as it captures the free spirit of a symphonic heart with crystal clarity.

The bands set tonight transported the audience on a journey laid down within previous recordings and also gave us a glimpse of what is still yet to come, in the form of a track from their forthcoming new album. This track in itself delivers a very powerful dreamscape, enhanced further by the unmistakable vocals of Hannah Fieldhouse and if this is a fair representation of what lies ahead, then the albums release is one to be highly anticipated.

Despite the restrictions that the confined space on stage presented Winter Storm with, the bands performance lacked for nothing tonight and all in all, delivered an excellent start to the night. Also, and in addition to the familiar faces of Hannah, Wayne and Kim up on stage tonight, there were a couple of unexpected surprise faces aswell, but more about that later.

After the bands set, I had chance to catch up with Hannah for a quick chinwag and to ask a few burning questions…

Congratulations, that was quite a set tonight – can you tell us a little about the set list and how you decided on which songs to include?

Thank you very much. Well we wanted to include a mixture of our two current albums with fan favourites such as Firedancer and Dark Awakening, but also put something new in there, so we showcased Astral World, which went down very well and was such a highlight of the performance for me personally.

It was great to hear a new song from the forthcoming album, how’s that coming along and can you say yet when it’s likely to be released?

We are still very much in the writing process, unfortunately, so we cannot give any indication about recording or release dates. Its taking a long time because we are really crafting the concept, feel and music. It will mark a new era musically for the band, and a progressed sound.

Tonight’s line up on stage was looking slightly different from usual with a couple of surprise face’s up there aswell – can you tell us a little bit about how that came about?

We recently parted ways with keyboardist doomsday, and had the fantastic Janson Sissons with us, more on that to come. Secondly we now have our previous drummer Richard Marsden back with us. He’s an integral part of our unit and we enjoy working and writing together. Kim Masters our bass player has been with us for a few years too now, surviving well, hahaha!

What’s next for the band, have you any more gigs lined up?

We have one show on Sat 19th November at Wolverhampton’s Giffard Arms. This is our last 2016 show, and we hope to have some exciting gig announcements soon for you all…

It was great to catch up with Hannah and Winter Storm tonight and a very big thank goes out to them for inviting us over, I’m sure we’ll be seeing you all again soon!

Winter Storm announce new keyboard player!

It is with great pleasure we announce our newest member to Winter Storm. Please meet Janson Sissons, who is our new keyboard player. Janson is a fantastic musician and songwriter (current member of local melodic metallers Awake by Design), and we've been successfully working together over the last few weeks. We couldn't be more thrilled. :-)

Winter Storm band update

Welcome to our latest band update, we have two parts of news to share:

 

After spending the last few months with Winter Storm writing our third album with us, we are proud to announce the return of Richard on drums. Being a highly professional musician; Richard previously wrote and performed on our first album, wrote most of the drums to our second album, and last year performed with us at Belgium's Wizzfest and Bloodstock Open Air.

You can catch Richard in action with us this October, at the robin 2 supporting Stream of Passion.

... And with the good news comes some bad news. After being in Winter Storm for over seven years, we announce the departure of keyboardist, Doomsday. We would like to extend our deepest thanks for all his time and efforts in the band, and wish him all the best for the future.

Therefore..

If you are interested in auditioning for Winter Storm on keyboards, please get in touch with Hannah at:
