The programming of the 11th edition of the Brainstorm Festival is steadily taking shape. Power Quest (UK), Angel Nation (UK) and Despicable Heroes (NL) have been added to the line-up of the event that will take place on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 November 2018 in Gigant, Apeldoorn. The headliner of the festival will follow, as will many other bands.

With Power Quest, Brainstorm Festival brings DragonForce‘s ‘brother’ into its home. The English band was founded by Steve Williams, who was active in the early years at DragonForce. Power Quest also knows how to play infectious power-metal. Since their come-back in 2016 it’s the band for the wind, as witnessed by the strong album “Sixth Dimension”.

Angel Nation (pictured) has no less than Elina Siirala standing behind the microphone. Nowadays we also know this Finnish singer from Leaves’ Eyes, but Angel Nation is her first love. Like Power Quest, Angel Nation has released a new album through Innerwound Recordings, and the hit single ‘Burn The Witch’ is driving the gothic-metal band to ever-increasing heights.

Angel Nation (formerly EnkeliNation) is back with their second album of hard, symphonic, power metal showcasing the talents of vocalist Elina Siirala (now also in Leaves Eyes).

Angel Nation was formed in 2011 in London by classically-trained Finnish opera vocalist Elina Siirala under the name EnkeliNation (Finnish for Angel Nation).  The story of the band goes back a bit farther when Elina moved to London, UK for vocal studies and fell in love with rock and metal.  In 2011, when her studies ended, she formed the band originally joined by guitarist Shadow (Empyreal Destroyer, Stand Aside) and the first years of the band were spent playing shows around London and enduring lineup changes.  A three song ep was released in late 2012 and in 2014 a video for the song “Tears of Lust” was released which gained the band a following.  Later that year the Tears of Lust album was  released with a headline show at the Underworld in London followed by a slot at the Bloodstock festival and subsequent UK tour.  In 2015, the band played some shows with Leaves Eyes and wrote/recorded Aeon and during this time the band decided to shift the name to the English translation of the band’s name due to ongoing confusion with the Finnish.  Those familiar with Leaves Eyes will undoubtedly recognize Elina as the new vocalist for that band as well and they have a new album slated for release in January 2018.
