BRAINSTORM were founded in 1989 by Torsten Ihlenfeld, Milan Loncaric and drummer Dieter Bernert. The first years saw the band build a solid groundwork with several demo releases and live appearances. In 1997 then BRAINSTORM signed their first record deal, the self-produced “Hungry” album was released and received good critics. Just a year later the band was back in the studio to record their second album “Unholy”, this time under the aegis of Charlie Bauerfeind and Dirk Schlächter. On the following European tour with Iced Earth all expectations were fulfilled, before BRAINSTORM made the next important step in their career with the addition of new vocalist Andy B. Franck to the band´s ranks. The third album “Ambiguity” was released shortly after and again received lots of praise from the press. In October 2001 BRAINSTORM released their next album “Metus Mortis”, which should become their international breakthrough. Numerous European magazines awarded it as “album of the month”.

In 2003 “Soul Temptation” was unleashed, an album that should further increase the band´s status. Chart entries in numerous European countries followed and the intense BRAINSTORM live performances were solidifying the band in the champion´s league of metal. Who would have thought that their next album „Liquid Monster“ (2005) should again be a huge progress? – In fact it was: Europe-wide chart entries and a successful hit single (“All Those Words”) caused that BRAINSTORM were invited to play all important festivals. Some of these appearances were released on the “Honey From The B’s” double-DVD that came out a bit later and was also used to shorten the time before the next studio album. “Downburst” was then released in January 2008. Not even two years after, BRAINSTORM celebrated their first release for AFM, “Memorial Roots”, which was followed by “On The Spur Of The Moment” and extensive touring activities. In April 2014 the band’s tenth studio album “Firesoul” became their highest-charting album ever in Germany (#43) until that day.

Following up on this success, BRAINSTORM didn’t waste any time to enter the studio and record a brand new piece of work titled “Scary Creatures”. In 2018, their latest masterpiece 'Midnight Ghost' was released, one of their finest efforts ever and successfully hitting German sales charts on an impressive position #25. Now, after quite a few years, the band will embark to Balingen again to join us at BANG YOUR HEAD!!! 2019!
