“Midnight Ghost is the album we always wanted to create for our fans – and ourselves. Every song, the sound, the cover artwork… it feels perfect to us! It all has such an incredible power, which is hard to describe. For me, it’s definitely one of our best albums and I’m confident that we can reach a new Brainstorm level with Midnight Ghost now. We can’t wait to bring this to the stages!“

Brainstormwere founded in 1989 by Torsten Ihlenfeld, Milan Loncaric and drummer Dieter Bernert. The first years saw the band build a solid groundwork with several demo releases and live appearances. In 1997 Brainstorm signed their first record deal, the self-produced Hungry album was released and received good reviews.
Just a year later the band was back in the studio to record their second album Unholy, this time under the aegis of Charlie Bauerfeind and Dirk Schlächter. On the following European tour with Iced Earth, all expectations were fulfilled before Brainstorm made the next important step in their career with the addition of new vocalist Andy B. Franck to the band’s ranks.
The Brainstorm juggernaut has not really stopped rolling since those days and Midnight Ghost will be the band’s 12th studio release.
