Sound Storm was founded 2002 in Turin, a city northwest of Italy. Back in those days the band consisted of six members and played classical heavy metal songs, like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Savatage and many other bands. Sound Storm is heavily influenced by Symphonic, Epic Metal, Power Metal, Classical and Celtic Folk Music. The bands first practical experience was gained by gigs around the local music scene in city's pubs. A first demo was recorded in 2003 and included cover versions of Manowar, Iron Maiden and Savatage.
