Winter Storm are a Five piece Dark Melodic Female Fronted Metal band hailing from the West Midlands, United Kingdom. 
 
 

Winter Storm began in 2008 with a vision to create a band that would be heavy, atmospheric, whilst still retaining traits of the Gothic Metal sound, but providing a more Melodic Metal edge.

Since 2009, Winter Storm have supported: Alestorm, Mortad, Delain, Sirenia, The Birthday Massacre, Theatres Des Vampires, Sarah Jezebel Deva (Ex Cradle of Filth), Die So Fluid, ReVamp, To-Mera, Lahannya, Achilla, Triaxis, Evil Scarecrow, Idiom, Voodoo Johnson, Raggedy Angry, The Eden House and more.

In 2010, Winter Storm released their debut album, Serenity In Darkness. The album features fan favourites such as; The Embrace, Prison Cell, Firedancer and Internal Storm. The album received an 8/10 from Poweplay's Andrew Hawnt who stated:

 

"Here's a band that have got their sound and image sorted. Winter Storm have the air of a band who know exactly what they want to do and how they want to do it; their sound is defined by the vocals and guitars of frontwoman Hannah, whose classically influenced voice and slightly punky guitars add a different direction to the gothic metal blueprint. Masked keyboardist/professional wrestler  adds some epic scale to the proceedings. Winter Storm are refreshingly different to the recent slew of bands in this particular genre, in that they inject a few progressive ideas into tracks such as rousing opener ''Firedancer'' and the equally marvellous ''Embrace''. While the band and their material are of high quality, songs such as ''Inner Demon'' and ''Prison Cell'' show us a band that has a very bright future with their particular brand of darkness. 8/10. Andrew Hawnt, Powerplay Magazine.
