Three years on from 2018’s Midnight Ghost and German power metallers Brainstorm are back with another slice of their dark and delightful music. The enduring four piece have always bucked the trend by going ever so slightly gothic in style and that remains on this latest record. You can tell they’ve been working hard as musicians though. Wall Of Skulls doesn’t see these guys sit on their laurels. The songs are more vibrant than anything that’s come before, they shout louder and more boldly. It would be oh so easy for Brainstorm to stagnate or to just become another member of the pack. Through progressing as writers and making sure their music is relevant they’ve made sure anonymity is kept well and truly at bay. In fact this latest release stands out so well it could mark a watershed moment. Wall Of Skulls deserves to be heard. Brainstorm have created a bit of a belter.
