Their new album is out in a couple of days, but this band ain’t interested in perfection
Shrapnel Storm, “The Old School Death Metal Bulldozer”, was founded in 2007 in Tampere, Finland. By this day, the quintet have recorded three demos and have had dozens of gigs.
After some lineup changes in 2011, this six year old youngster is standing bravely on its own feet. Now stronger than ever.
The biggest musical influences for Shrapnel Storm is 90´s mid-tempo death metal acts. The music gives respect for the influences mentioned, but on the other hand shows a middle finger for today´s computerized perfectionism in the music business.
Brutality, Respect for traditions and Groove are three key elements which can be found in every Shrapnel Storm song. The lyrics are commonly dealing with war and fighting.
