Sinah Meier – Vocals
Olli Fuchs – Drums
To release their own album – something FREAKSTORM could never have dreamed of a few years ago, for singer Sinah Meier and drummer Olli Fuchs were starting as a tribute project. But in the meantime they were becoming a band that establishes itself in the newcomer scene with its own songs.
On the 27th of August 2021 the dream finally came true. The by Dennis Ward produced album “Storm Inside My Heart” with its nine tracks is available on all streaming and download platforms
and physically as a CD in a digipack. In the summer FREAKSTORM sent two singles in the running: the propulsive title track “Storm Inside My Heart” and the electrifying AC/DC-Cover “Shot Down In Flames”. Both songs were
released digitally and with a music video.
The first song which FREAKSTORM recorded 2016 was a cover of the US group Halestorm. The goal to hand this track over to their idols personally (which indeed happened), gave Sinah and Olli the motivation to record their own songs. The first EP "We Got The Fire" was recorded in 2018 and released self-directed.
2019 followed the officially and internationally released EP “From Zero” which was the product of a new era for FREAKSTORM: On the one hand the band began to work with producer Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69/Helloween). He supported the band to develop a rich rock sound – a strong fundament for Sinah’s powerful and clear voice.
On the other hand FREAKSTORM since then cooperates with the Label Major Promo Music (Gummersbach) regarding digital releases. All songs of the band are on the well-known streaming and download platforms. In Mai 2019 the successful single “Can’t Keep Me Down” was released this way. And FREAKSTORM started to shoot music videos.
The EP “From Zero” also came as a physical CD onto the market and draw great attention in the scene: Reviews in some rock magazines, radio plays around the globe and the jump in the Alaskan charts.
Sinah und Olli worked in their career successfully with alternating musicians. At the latest recording session at the Kangaroo Studios (Karlsdorf-Neuthard) this spring producer Dennis Ward played the bass completely and Oliver Hartmann (Avantasia/Hartmann) contributed the guitars for three tracks.
FREAKSTORM used the preceding corona break for intensive songwriting. This payed off: The musicians officially came back with refined arrangements and a matured sound.
After the release in August FREAKSTORM instantly returned to producer Dennis Ward to record an emotional acoustic version of their rock song “Out Of The Door”. The filigree acoustic guitars were once again played by Oliver Hartmann. The release on December 23rd was completed by a visually powerful music video where the band performs in between numerous candlesticks.
