Pitch Black Records welcomes Cyprus-based atmospheric black metallers STORMCAST to its artist roster.
Formed in 2007 in Nicosia,Cyprus and influenced by the status of society and people’s own personal struggle, STORMCAST sought to write music to express them and create something that defines them.
Following a 4-track promo in 2009 and a 3-track promo in 2012 the band’s debut album is now ready to be unleashed! The band has extensive live experience, having performed at MetalDays Festival and having supported acts such as Rotting Christ, Sabaton, Stratovarius and Nightstalker among others.
Through writing and experimenting with its own material, the band slowly found its style of music; that of atmospheric black metal. Blending touches of symphonic metal as well as gothic and melodic death metal and a subtle dose of doom, STORMCAST have created a unique style and sound that they can truly call their own. The band members are passionate and determined and this is clearly evident throughout their work.
The band’s debut album, “Frame of Mind”, is set for release on December 8th (UK/ROW), December 14th (GAS) and February 10th (USA) on CD and digital. The album’s opening track is now streaming and can be downloaded for free at www.pitchblackrecords.com while the CD version is available for pre-order at http://store.pitchblackrecords.com.
