Thunderous Belfast based Melodic Heavy Metallers Stormzone have been confirmed as special guest act on ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach’s UK tour dates at the following venues:-

Tues. June 12th – BELFAST Limelight

Weds. June 13th – GLASGOW Garage

Thur. June 14th – LONDON 02 Academy Islington

Stormzone’s stonking third studio album, ‘Zero To Rage’, released in November 2011 on Steamhammer / SPV, was widely acclaimed on release. Powerplay’s Chris Kee reviewed the LP in the magazine’s December 2011 issue:-

“I was suitably impressed by Stormzone’s 2010 album “Death Dealer” and “Zero To Rage” sees the band picking up where they left off and delivering more top class, melodic metal with huge hooks, powerful vocals and thrilling guitar leads. If you are looking for some pure heavy metal that sounds fresh and exciting whilst still remaining firmly rooted in the glory days of the genre, then Stormzone are the answer to your prayers. I can only hope that this Northern Irish band make it to my neck of the woods for some live dates soon because the material on “Zero To Rage” must be positively incendiary in the live setting. 8/10”

Big Cheese’s Jon Falcone reviewed ‘Zero To Rage’ in the magazine’s December 2011 issue:- “Storrnzone's latest album has all the elements of a good ol’ British metal album; it's anthemic, vocals bellow and snarl, rifts chime and chords chug. The title track has a great melody and soars operatically, like Maiden through the battlefields, and the chorus ascension rocks. Similarly 'Empire of Fear' marches rhythmically into harmony heavy vocals.”

Stormzone, who were formed in 2005 by ex – Sweet Savage, Fastway, Emerald and Den Of Thieves vocalist Harv (John Harbinson), released their debut album ‘Caught In The Act’, on UK rock label Escape Music in 2007. Major support slots around Europe ensued over the next two years with the likes of Y&T, White Lion, Tesla, George Lynch and LA Guns. Stormzone also won prestigious slots on the stages of European festivals such as Sweden Rock, Lorca Festival (Spain), Raisemesfest (France), Zrock (UK) and Firefest (UK). ‘Caught In The Act’ so impressed renowned 80’s NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) DJ / producer Neal Kay, who was the first to champion Iron Maiden in their early days, that he went into the studio with Stormzone to co-produce the band’s second album, ‘Death Dealer’ in the latter part of 2009. Drummer Davy Bates then sent the recordings to Jess Cox, original Tygers Of Pan Tang vocalist and former owner of the seminal Neat Records label, who was so impressed that he offered to manage the band immediately and shortly after licensed ‘Death Dealer’ to SPV / Steamhammer in Germany, who released it in April 2010. In 2010 the band shared stages with Stryper and Cinderella and then won over the huge crowds at the Headbangers Open Air and German Wacken Festivals in 2011, in between recording ‘Zero To Rage’ during the spring and summer of that year.
