Desert Storm


2018 marks the return of Oxford-based sludge-metal titans Desert Storm as they prepare to follow the release of 2014ís critically-acclaimed “Omniscient” album with their new opus “Sentinels”, confirmed for release this coming March 16th via APF Records.

Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio’s, Hackney and tracked by Steve “Geezer” Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), “Sentinels” is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses. “This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”

Desert Storm

Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ëSentinelsí in the shape of ëToo Far Goneí, a brutal, pounding powerhouse of a track that tackles the bleak subject of excessive binge drinking. ìItís the paradox of hard liquor being both the cause and the remedy of the sickness,î states vocalist Matt Ryan. ìSelf destruction and punishment of the body. Itís inspired by the tragic tales of Bon Scott and John Bonham, along with fictional characters Ben Sanderson of Leaving Las Vegas and to a lesser extent, Jim Lahey of Trailer Park Boys. Itís a miserable outcome as our song begins with alcoholism and ends in death.î

“Sentinels” features the following tracks
Journey’s End
Too Far Gone
The Brawl
Kingdom Of Horns
Gearhead
Drifter
The Extrovert
Convulsion
Capsized
