Output from the band may be rare (for many reasons over the last couple of years) but this track suggests there is fire in the belly to make this work and hopefully more music, more shows and the level of recognition that the lads deserve is forthcoming.

It seems that time is only improving their approach and guile to their abilities. I am blown away by the musicianship on this album and I will say that this is a modern-day classic!
The songs drip with soul and energy whether they are hard hitting rockers or the calmer lighter in the air moments of tracks like Poison Inside My Heart and Carved in Stone.
I am impressed by the mix of styles they employ to push their message and there are some absolutely banging moments which I know will set circle pits off with wanton abandon.
There is a beautiful light-hearted humour running throughout the album as can be seen from the videos they have thoughtfully created. The influences run clear through the album yet, it is hard to completely pigeonhole the band to a particular style, thus ‘stonerpunk’ was born.
British hard rock legends Uriah Heep are one of the “big four” rock bands, along with Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, and certainly one of the most intriguing bands both musically and lyrically, to emerge from heavy rock.
At this point, there’s no need to go into detail on how recent world events have affected the music industry, but suffice to say, pretty much any band in the world has had to adjust in some way or another. It can be especially hard for a band who seemed to be gaining momentum in a big way in recent years, such as German power metal band Brainstorm, coming off possibly their most successful and well-regarded album to date in Midnight Ghost.
The strength lies, however, in the bonus live tracks, ‘Walk With Me In Hell’, ‘Redneck’ and ‘Descending’, which for the discerning fan, will be a welcome addition to know that was their only live performance in 2020
