Shrapnel Storm released 1st song from album “Silo”

Shrapnel Storm is an old-school death metal band from Tampere, Finland.

Expect crushing mid-tempo death metal, mixed in with ruthless thrash components of speed and groove. Band has released two full-lenght albums: “Mother War” (2015), self-titled “Shrapnel Storm” (2020) and now they are preparing to release, brand new, third album titled “Silo”.

The album kicks off ominously reflecting the eerie sounds of oncoming doom and destruction, blasting into one of band’s more fast-paced tunes, followed by brutal stomping and wicked melodies track after track. Compared to their previous works, this album has the most variation when it comes to general “feeling” of songs, going from menacing to empowering. It is a ride of different emotions, all depicting aspects of giving your life to something you believe in, sometimes in vain.

Recording, mixing and mastering of “Silo” was executed by Daniel Rantanen at Danko Tones / JR Audio Studios at first half of 2023, and album was produced by Aadolf Virtanen. The cover and booklet design was made by Ville Yrjola.

“Silo”, new Sharpnel Storm album will be released digitally and on CD October 6th, 2023 via Great Dane Records. Pre-order at webstore and Bandcamp.

Band’s guitarist Tri Makitalo gave his comments about the new single:

“Speed! Danger! Snakes! Are these the main ingredients for a great song? As it comes to me, I say yes! The song is one of the fastest in the new album, and I could say it is some kind of exit from our typical mid-tempo comfort zone. Beware, this is going to hit fast and hard!”
