Easily one of the most overlooked Power Metal bands I'm aware of, Brainstorm certainly deserves more attention than they receive. I'm kind of iffy on the band's material prior to 2003's Soul Temptation (I only like a few tracks prior to this point) but after this point the band's output has been consistent. Most people point towards the darker nature of the lyrics and music as the reason they don't pop up in conversation when fans talk about the genre but this happens to be one of their most distinguishing features. The main negative is since Soul Tempatation one could make the argument that the albums have been "samey" but that criticism is made of many European metal acts. That said, Soul Temptation and Liquid Monster gabbed my attention when I was a teenager and are quite different than most of the other power metal discs I have.
