The new chapter of SUNSTORM is here! Originally designed to showcase a musical style similar to singer Joe Lynn Turner’s Melodic Rock/AOR roots, the band now has a new face on the front-man’s seat, in the form of LORDS OF BLACK and RAINBOW singer Ronnie Romero. His debut with the group, “Afterlife” was recently released on March 12, 2021, and you can read our chronicle of the album at this location.
With producer Alessandro Del Vecchio handling the songwriting, the new SUNSTORM album caught many in the melodic rock fanbase by surprise, and it’s an 80’s hard rock fan’s wet dream. The new lineup counts also with Simone Mularoni (DGM) on guitars, Nik Mazzucconi on bass and Michele Sanna on drums. Together, they aim at combining the highest points of Rainbow, Whitesnake and Deep Purple, with a modern edge and a dose of heaviness added for good measure.
