Originally conceived in 2003, Pierrot recorded Stormland's first song with the help of a drummer friend. After beginning audio engineering studies at the Center for Arts & Technologies Okanagan in 2005, Pierrot was soon able to apply new principles in songwriting, recording, and drum programming to his project. These early songs were raw, but a kernel of what would become the Stormland sound was there: guitars that went from buzz-saw speed to pile-driving groove on a dime, classic rock-informed soloing, and dynamic death metal vocals.
Fast forward to the present: Stormland has moved to the city of Burnaby, B.C. and is now on the eve of his third release, Songs of Future Wars. Following 2009's politically-themed Colbert Made Me Do It demo & 2015's fantastical True, North, Strong, and Cranky EP, the upcoming full-length is inspired by Pierrot's love of anime - in particular, the Mobile Suit Gundam metaseries. Songs of Future Wars' eight tracks use each pilot or mobile suit to weave personal tales of violence, survival, & psychological damage.
