New Stormhunter album out now!

Metalnews Power of
Brand new, third studio album of the German Power/Heavy Metal act titled "An Eye For An I" is out now, and includes 12 songs kept in best German Metal tradition, with both catchy melodies and choruses, and aggressive vocals. If you are into classic acts such as Running Wild, or you like early Angel Dust or Helloween records, then Stormhunter plays for you.

Stormhunter is a German Heavy Metal band, founded in 1998 by guitar players Stefan Müller and Achim Heinzelmann. After releasing first demo tape "First Battle" in 2001 and several concerts, Stormhunter appeared on two compilations: "The Reaper Comes" (Heavy Horses Records) and "United We Are" (Métal Intégral). In 2002, after several line up changes, Stefan Müller (last founding member), decided to leave the band - other members took new direction after changing band's name to Subsphere.

In 2007 Stefan Müller reactivated the band, and wrote bunch of songs in the classic German Heavy/Power Metal style, that landed on band's debut album "Stormhunter" from 2009. The line up at that time was: Frank Urschler (vocals), Andreas Kiechle (drums), Julia Weiss (guitar), Denno (bass) and Stefan Müller (guitar). The same line up (without Denno who was replaced by session bass player), recorded second album titled "Crime And Punishment", which was released in 2011 by Emanes Metal Records in Europe and Spiritual Beast Records in Japan. In 2011 Burkhard Ulrich joined as the bass player, to later switch positions with guitarist Julia, who shortly after that left the band due to personal reasons. Her place was filled by Fritz, bass player from German Thrash Metal act Nuclear Warfare, who also supported the band in the past as live musician.
