TRACK PREMIERE: Desert Storm, "Pain, Grief & Suffering"

UK sludge quintet DESERT STORM have been making a name for themselves since they formed in late 2007. From the beginning the band have worked hard, with four albums and relentless touring of the UK & Europe with the likes of Karma To Burn, Nashville Pussy, Peter Pan Speedrock… and appearances at Bloodstock Festival, Hammerfest, Hard Rock Hell, Desertfest London and Berlin & Roadkill Festival

In early 2018, the band released their fourth album 'Sentinels’ to much acclaim and would see them forge a new relationship with upcoming  label APF Records.  Having spent much of the proceeding years on stage in support of the album, as well as members going to form the band The Grand Mal and releasing their debut (also on APF Records), the band somehow managed to enter the studio again in late 2019 and will return on 1st May 2020 with their fifth album 'Omens'

While 'Sentinels' was described as their darkest and heaviest record to date, 'Omens' sees DESERT STORM reaching a whole new level in terms of songwriting and storytelling. The five piece have found the balance between their trademark menacing sludge anthems and introspective, melody-driven moments. DESERT STORM’s new album ‘Omens’ out May 1st on APF Records and you can PREORDER now.  You can also check out the brand new track “Pain, Grief & Suffering” below, so turn your stereo up to 11 and watch your speakers die.

Matt Ryan had the following to say about the track "Pain, grief, and suffering" is that place where you are numbed to everything and so disassociated with life that you crave hurt just to feel alive. When you are completely lost, only the hardest emotions can make you feel again.”
