The band was founded in Munich, once known as Lizard, in the year 1993.
After four international CD releases, including via Century Media Records, and extensive touring with Blind Guardian, Grave Digger and many other bands, the former "Metal Heart Magazine - Newcomer" StormHammer now is back with a strong brand new cast around the founding members Manni Ewender and Horst Tessman.
After a long time and search for suitable musicians we are proud to present our new line-up with singer Jürgen Dachl and guitarist Bernd Intveen. Influenced by their previous work in other metal bands (e.g. Diabolos Dust, Shadowland, van Langen), the sound of StormHammer will change a little bit!
On drums there was a change again - Felix Weise was replaced by Chris Widmann, who some of you will remember from a previous StormHammer line-up.
In 2015 the band signed a contract with german`s metal lable "Massacre Records" and released their fifth album "Echoes of a lost paradise" on 12.06.2015.
Now StormHammer are working on their 6th album "Welcome to the end" - and this piece of pure fucking power-metal will be released on 24. March 2017! Watch out!
Since April 2017 Jürgen Dachl and StormHammer are going separate ways. For the further concerts and the tour with Serious Black in autumn the frontman of Emergency Gate and Sinnestäter, Matthias Kupka, will be on the vocals.
