As many of you will know, last week the band were shooting a new music video for a track from their latest album, Seven Sins. Acclaimed director Alex Perisson, responsible for many award winning videos from Europe's top metal bands, had signed up to direct the video, in a concept that involved recording footage in a disused asylum, against the advice of local experts.
As far as we can ascertain, the band and entire production crew encountered some kind of problem during the shoot. We have not been able to contact anyone involved since the date of filming. The attached news report contains footage found at the scene, which some viewers might find distressing.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the band or crew should get in touch immediately.
After five albums Stormzone are about to hit the recording studio once more, but before entering Fire Machine Studios to begin work on their sixth album the guys took time to re-visit 'Zero To Rage', their third album which was released in 2011. Although the guys in the band are immensely proud of the songs on this third opus it was an album released before they were entirely happy with the production. Luckily Stormzone guitarist Steve Moore, also an immensely talented producer, managed to get his hands on all the original recordings and over the past few months he has lovingly re-mixed and re-mastered the whole album, adding instruments and sections where necessary. Without the pressure of a release deadline he has created an album that now sits very proudly amongst the Stormzone back catalogue and this time to the band's fullest satisfaction!
Entitled 'Return To Zero' this revisiting of 'Zero To Rage' not only features Steve Moore's world class production, mixing and mastering skills, it also contains brand new artwork plus two Stormzone songs never before released, 'Coming Home' and 'Face My Demons', especially recorded just for this album!
'Return To Zero' is available now as a HD digital download for just £7.99 by clicking on the following link:
Nigel Jackson was kind enough to capture this footage of You're Not The Same from the magnificent Distortionfest 2016 event. It was Gordy Gray's first outing with the band, and we think you'll agree that he nailed it!!
Banbridge's own drumming dynamo Gordy Gray joins Stormzone!
The band will be debuting the new line-up in Belfast's Limelight 2 on the 29th Oct, supporting Warrior Soul at Distortionfest 2016. Shortly after this, an announcement will be made about a Spanish tour in early 2017, in a return to Stormzone's home from home.
The band is also scheduled to play some of the biggest festivals across the USA and Europe next year, with additional show dates being added in the run up to those.
Gordy will be providing the thunder on the 6th Stormzone album, which is set to be an explosive new chapter in the already weighty Stormzone book.

Stormzone are delighted to announce that we will be appearing at Distortionfest 2016.
The line-up is absolutely fantastic:
Warrior Soul (USA)
Lord Volture (NEATHERLANDS)
Rabid Bitch Of The North
Plus 5 more bands to be announced.

'Seven Sins' is without a doubt Stormzone's tour-de-force and the ideas the band have for playing it in a live setting (see interview elsewhere) make this album an even more exciting prospect. As Melodic Metal records go, this one is a bit of a monster and it's definitely up there with the best ones I've heard this year.

We've no idea what the review says, but with an 85/100 score, it must be pretty good!
