Desert Storm (GB)

For more than a decade, Oxford based riff hounds Desert Storm have been making a name for themselves with their own brand of sludge that takes the bluesy roots of the genre and runs with it. Over the course of 5 albums, they've proven to be one of those rare metal bands not content with churning out the same old riffs, constantly challenging themselves and their fans with varied and skilled songwriting that pays tribute to all the right metal and heavy rock classics.
