Soulstorm combine aggression, ambiance and a heaviness that few can come close to. With each new release, Soulstorm conquers fresh new ground while retaining their signature sound. Formed in '91, Soulstorm have always been a step ahead among the sounds around them. They prove this once again with the crushing "Under The Killing Sun" which has made many friends and fans, showcasing a heavy, highly emotive sound.SOULSTORM GENRES
"It is easy to pass us off as being selfish because we write for ourselves from the heart. We understand that we cannot be all things to all people. This is more than standard paint by numbers metal, this is about exploring textures and emotions through music. Lyrically we deal with denial, anxiety, depression and paranoia. Our subjects are very real and hit the nerve of human dysfunction".
