STARSICK SYSTEM is a new sensation in modern hard rock featuring vocalist and guitarist Marco Sandron (Pathosray, Eden’s Curse, Fairyland, etc), bassist Valeria Battain and lead guitarist David Donati (both known in Syrayde) plus producer, songwriter and drummer Ivan Moni Bidin (Pathosray, Ashent, Garden Wall, Syrayde, etc) in the line-up.


Today, the lyric video for the first instant grat/ single “Bulletproof” will be released. Check out the video on youtube at this link:

Bassist Valeria Battain comments on the track: “Bulletproof is song of “rebellion" but with an ironic tone. It will take on a personal meaning to everyone who hears it, but the message is the same: stand up for what you believe in, no matter what other people say, face your enemies, be proud of you and take back yourself respect against bullies, self-centered and arrogant ones. We chose this song as first single cause the mood and the melodies are the perfect evolution of our original sound. It’s a perfect match of heavy riffing and catchy refrains that is what distinguishes us mostly!”

The album “Lies, Hopes & Other Stories” will hit the shelves on June 23rd, 2017 via Pride & Joy Music. Next to 10 original songs, the record also features an outstanding cover of the Chris Cornell song “You Know My Name” (James Bond 007 – Casino Royale soundtrack).

Line-up: Marco Sandron – vocals, guitars; David Donati – guitars; Ivan Moni Bidin – drums, Valeria Battain – bass

Track list: 1. Nebolus, 2. I Am The Hurricane, 3. Bulletproof, 4. Sinner, 5. The Promise, 6. Scars, 7. Everything And More, 8. Come One, Come All, 9. Perfect Lie, 10. Hope, 11. You Know My Name (Chris Cornell 007 soundtrack cover)

The melodic metal band PYRAMAZE just released a music video for the track "A World Divided" from their highly anticipated new album "Contingent". The album will be released on April 28th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.

Link to the music video:

With their milestone fifth album "Contingent," Pyramaze have grown and matured into a band that is capable of satisfying their fans while simultaneously continuing to break new ground. The incorporation of modern cinematic film score elements mixed with progressive metal riffs and melodies will leave the listener breathless! Huge, sweeping, hard-hitting, and poignant, "Contingent" is an epic post-apocalyptic conceptual piece inspired by current events, the human spirit to overcome struggle and diversity, and the brotherhood that lies there in. Produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica, Evergrey].

"Divided by oceans, bound together by brotherhood, we must become that which divides us.... we are PYRAMAZE, and we are the Ocean!"

Pyramaze line-up

The band STORMBURST was formed in July 2014.  The original intention just was to make high quality music, have fun, and do what you believe in and without any musical compromises. No more covers, just self-composed material.


Bass player Kent Jansson (Six Feet Under, Keen Hue, Steam) and  guitarist Thomas Hansson (Steam, Coastline) started with singer Lars-Åke ”Plåtis” Nilsson (Keen Hue). To get the special sound that they wanted, they sent the keyboardist Peter Östling (Six Feet Under) a demo, who believed completely into the idea and joined immediately. Later on they recruited the hard hitting drummer Peter ”Zeke” Ytterberg (Keen Hue, Moonshine Highway) to complete the line-up.

The band’s name STORMBURST has the intention of uncompromisingly doing what you believe in even if you have a headwind. Even if the wind blows hard in life sometimes, is the love of music in all conditions strong and sustainable. STORMBURST is the ability to reflect it with music and lyrics. Their style can be described as Melodic Hard Rock & AOR.

The band is based in the heartland of Sweden, Dalarna, all the songs were written by Kent, Thomas and Lars-Åke. The composing and demo recordings of all tracks were done in the home studio of Lars-Åke in Vansbro to subsequently present them to the rest of the band.

The result, the debut album “Raised To Rock”, was mainly recorded, mixed and mastered at Studio Bakery, Äppelbo by Jonas Tornemalm between January and February 2017. The recordings of strings were made at the Royal College of Music (KMH) in Stockholm during the same period of time.

"Raised On Rock" is a tribute to all musical heroes the members in the STORMBURST grew up with.
