Formed in 2007 in Nicosia,Cyprus and influenced by the status of society and people’s own personal struggle, STORMCAST sought to write music to express them and create something that defines them.
Through writing and experimenting with its own material, the band slowly found its style of music; that of atmospheric black metal. Blending touches of symphonic metal as well as gothic and melodic death metal and a subtle dose of doom, STORMCAST have created a unique style and sound that they can truly call their own. The band members are passionate and determined and this is evident throughout their work.

This album is condensed genius, a kind of dark prog epic that traverses many musical structures - one can sometimes hear hints of Iron Maiden, Amon Amarth and Dimmu Borgir, yet Shymlagoghnar has its own distinct sound. The themes relating to philosophy, the universe, civilization and entropy truly resonated with me and supplemented the virtuoso pieces "I am the Abyss", "The Cosmic Tide" with even more depth. Everything about this album fits together in a complex order.Thank you to the artists. Demiurgos
