The monumental opening of BRAINSTORM´s new album "On The Spur Of The Moment" displays the strengths of the German power metal force at their very best: atmospheric buildup, powerful riffing, excellent fine-tuning and the expressive vocals of Andy B. Franck make "Below The Line" the perfect opening track, one that will be embraced by fans of the Queensryche high times. But as everyone knows, BRAINSTORM is much more than this and the following 45 minutes are again proof of the band´s versatility and exceptional class. This is tasteful power metal that doesn´t deny BRAINSTORM´s roots but also shows that the band is living in the here and now. So besides typical BRAINSTORM songs like "Still Insane", the up-tempo smashers "Where Your Actions Lead You To Live" and "A Life On Hold", you´ll find a track like "In These Walls", whose powerful-sagging rhythm and riffs are accompanied by fragile piano lines. The grooving "Temple Of Stone" has had its baptism of fire already on the Bang Your Head and Masters Of Rock festivals.
