Torsten Ihlenfeld (Gitarre) hierzu:
When we played our tour for Liquid Monster we realised after a few glasses of Wine that in 2007 it would be ten years since the release of our debut album Hungry. Besides the typical wining around how fast time flies by, etc we also came up with something creative. Why not re-releasing the debut album as well as it´s successor Unholy? Both records were not available anymore for quite some time and the timing seemed perfect to us. No new album in 2007, but two re-issues of our first two albums. Of course we didn´t just want to re-release the albums in it´s original version and after searching the archives, we found some really cool bonus material to include. Next up it was clear that we wanted to remaster both albums and even re-mix the "Hungry" album if in anyway possible - and we did!!! This is definitely the best possible sound you can get of the first two BRAINSTORM albums! Compare it to the originals which are included as a bonus in the very same package(s).
Beide Alben werden mit neuem Artwork und Booklet daherkommen.
About the bonus material (remastered as well!) The Hungry album includes our 5th Season demo from 1994 with six songs and a running time of 30 minutes. This demo gives you the chance to travel to the very early days of the band and yes, we are still very proud of the demo and quite satisfied with it! Unholy includes two demos, Heart Of Hate from 1993 and the Promo 96 demo, plus the original Japanese bonus track of Unholy. 5 songs in total clocking in after 25 minutes.
We as a band celebrate the first decade of BRAINSTORM releases with these re-issues and we hope you guys out there enjoy these albums as much as we still do!
On another note a BRAINSTORM DVD is in the works where you can (among tons of other stuff) also see footage from the old days. We hope to release the DVD by the end of June, 2007.
And to all those asking for a new album. Be cool! A new BRAINSTORM album will be recorded later on this year to be released in early 2008! We will continue our crusade and hope the next decade will be even more successful than the first one!
