Stormrider is a heavy/thrash metal band from Manchester, UK. Formed in early 2017 by Przemyslaw (bass, backing vocals), Rob (drums) and Cristiano (guitars), the line-up was finalised in May with the addition of lead singer Mike. Rooted in NWOBHM and with influences ranging from hard rock and classic heavy metal (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest) to power/thrash (Iced Earth, Kreator, Metallica), the band's music offers raw, uninhibited power combined with a keen sense of melody.
The band since it’s formation in early 2017 have already come a long way. Gaining slots at the likes of Metal 2 the Masses and SOS festival, the band have slowly but surely established themselves on the local and Northern gig circuit. Due to their live success, they have won opening slots in the second half of 2018 for the likes of Powerquest and Diamond Head which promise to help the band grow.
The first half of 2018 also saw the band release their debut EP “Heavy Metal Machine” which proved popular among fans and critics. Made up of four tracks, the EP is the classic metal sound, combining vibrant guitar work and powerful vocals that display the true essence of the band!
Currently, Stormrider are making plans for their 2nd EP in 2019 and booking shows to accompany the release!
