Strength 08:18 video
Strength Force your words into sentence heard. Running out of time. No mistakes, All the fake illusions in confusion lie, deny, will vaporize. Rearrange all the books that matter Look beyond, read between the lines Turning page after page, for better Or for worse, that’s the curse of life, Never-ending, in stories, pretending. Truth or dare’s the game that you play. To say that you’re tender, yet always demanding. Bow your head to kings and to queens. The dreams are surreal, hiding, waiting for appeal out of heart. Searching, all to be a part... Force your words into sentence heard. Running out of time. No mistakes, all the fake illusions in confusion lie, deny, will vaporize Disagree to agree to standard. Do not write what’s inside your mind. What you question will not be answered, nor be heard, but assumed unkind. Debate unspoken, for all seems provoking. Will you answer? In chance to enhance. Between all sorrow, laughter, it’s one big disaster. Bow your head to kings and to queens. The tales are surreal, gazing, waiting for appeal out of heart. Searching, all to be a part... Force your words into sentence heard. Running out of time. No mistakes, all the fake illusions in confusion lie Force your words into sentence heard. Running out of time. No mistakes, all the fake illusions in confusion lie, deny, will vaporize

The search 06:55
The Search In moving momentum, Touching hands for the chance to become the reflection. Rejection in eyes all around, no disguise. For the shadows are fed to moan. Together – alone … Too far, too far… To stay or follow forever? Alarm. Forgot to be real. See what, heal what’s there to say. To ever become. Hold on. Stay until... In moving momentum, Touching hands for the chance to become the reflection. Rejection of mind, all around, mirror blind, For the shadows that stare to grow. Together – alone .. Too far, too far.. To stay or follow forever? Alarm Forgot to be real. See what, heal what’s there to say. To ever become, hold on. Stay until .... The search for all, The cry for… The search for all, The try for… The search, us to belong, trust, Lost inside one The search for all, The cry for… The search for all, The try for… The search, us to belong, trust, Lost inside one

Sun for life 08:08
Sun For Life Retrieve the union. Release the prisoners. Reassure to care for, Where the war is finally gone. Stop the blame, for the other side lost. Shame runs through their lies. Their guns are shy, feel the fears of misfortune. No one is to hide. Sun for life. Soldiers, towards freedom, for forgiveness. No more in a warzone, no more. Take control of the blind. Let Go ... Your mind … Before creation, Become a warrior. Build imagination, Where the war is finally gone. Stop the blame, for the other side lost. Shame runs through their lies. Their guns are shy, feel the fears of misfortune. No one is to hide. Hold on tight. Heroes, towards freedom, for forgiveness. No more in a warzone, no more. Take control of the blind. Let Go... Your mind… Stop the blame, for the other side lost. Shame runs through their lies. Their guns are shy, feel the fears of misfortune. No one is to hide. Stop the blame, for the other side lost. Shame runs through their lies. Their guns are shy, feel the fears of misfortune. No one is to hide.

Hope 07:41
Hope Far beyond horizon’s all, Darkness, light are one. Knowing the unknown will call, Dare, before you run. To find the way, you dive into the deep, desire, take a leap of faith, you go. Longing for more, You aim towards the sky, for in reward you’ll fly. (‘cause) Living is easier, living is easier, With some kind of confidence, with some kind of wonder. Living is easier, living is easier, With some kind of confidence, with some kind of wonderwall. Hear the voices of your mind, of your soul. Fear no fears for they are blind. Take control. Far beyond horizon’s all, Darkness, light are one. Knowing the unknown will call, Dare, before you run. To find the way, you’re eager to unfold, On fire, free, uphold your faith to grow. Expecting more, No universe is shy, is that the reason why? Living is easier, living is easier, With some kind of confidence, with some kind of wonder. Living is easier, living is easier, With some kind of confidence, with some kind of wonderwall. Hear the voices of your mind, of your soul. Fear no fears for they are blind. Take control. Care for all the cravings found, Bound to be yourself. Don’t forget, forgive your falls. Know your wonderwall. Bow to all the burdens on your shoulders – show you how, To bring it down and break it all away. No limits or boundaries, go without a hungry burning. For hope is here to stay.

No air 06:55 video
No Air Sail far away Hail, no escape Storm’s there to be Darkness surrounds, Trying to hold, Facing the cold Sea, no air, drown Wave, no air, drown Sea, no air, drown Wave, no air, drown.... Deep down below Creeps undertow Don’t go against Only surrender Follow the stream of Low self-esteem Fear, no air, drown Rave, no air, drown Fear, no air, drown Rave, no air, drown Sacrifice Crucified You don’t care!

Mind's eye 06:15
Mind’s Eye Prise open, behind closed doors. Pad locked, pierce through. The story will be unveiled. Assumptions will vaporize being premature. Blindfolded vision, taken as religion. Stands alone, firmly in mind. Caught up in prejudice, but who’s to say, That the world that we live in, is truly consisted with your mind’s eye. Merge and repel. Merge and repel. To gather new ground control. Notion, twofold. There’s more than just meets the eye. Our clouded minds will prevail, it’s above it all. Blindfolded vision, taken as religion. Stands alone, firmly in mind. Caught up in prejudice, but who’s to say, That the world that we live in, is truly consisted with your mind’s eye. Merge and repel. Merge and repel. Mind’s eye, Beware of silent verdict. Increase perception of the world around, uncloud, unveil, prevail, insight. Blindfolded vision, taken as religion… Blindfolded vision, taken as religion… Blindfolded vision, taken as religion. Stands alone, firmly in mind. Caught up in prejudice, But who’s to say, that the world that we live in, is truly consisted with your mind’s eye. Merge and repel. Merge and repel. Merge and repel. Merge and repel.

How it ends 09:34
How It Ends I can see you now, And it’s clear what together could be. And I can see you now, No more fear. I need to find out how it ends. Pretending my whole life to be stronger on my own. So help me to swim against the grain. Breaking down these walls to lose control. Follow me down the road somewhere, Can you fit yourself in a role to play to still my needs? In a tangled web of curiosities, Can you compromise with the way I am? Don’t pressure me. Afraid to lose the game, Or lose myself in a wind of change. One-way road in front of us, It filled me with dread to stay. I can see you now, And it’s clear what together could be. And I can see you now, No more fears of pressing down my song. I need to find out how it ends. Pretending my whole life to be stronger on my own. So help me to swim against the grain. Breaking down these walls to lose control. Allow myself to feel secure here, And, oh, how your shape fits mine. Even when we’re cloaked in doubt, We reel back in every time… I can see you now, sum of parts, If we speak the right words. And I can see you now, disarray, Evolved into something new. I have to wake up. Come find me here. I have to wake up. Can’t do it alone. Can’t do it alone… I need to find out how it ends. Pretending my whole life to be stronger on my own. So help me to swim against the grain. Breaking down these walls to lose control.

about

Where one moment it’s like a soft breeze in your ear, another moment it’s like a devastating tornado testing your eardrums. Perfect storm is an extremely dynamic and adventurous Dutch rock band founded in Groningen, but influenced from all wind directions. With smashing guitar riffs, driving drums, tight bass lines, velvet voices and enchanting piano parts this new project brings the musical landscape an irresistible whirlwind from high and low pressure areas.
The boundless, melodic and at times virtuoso rock music of Perfect Storm is mainly the result of the vision of guitarist / songwriter Gert-Jan Schurer. He draws from his own experience and the broad range of sounds with which he grew up. Rock acts such as Porcupine Tree / Steven Wilson and jazz-cats like Pat Metheny are among the soundtrack
of his life, but also film composers such as Hans Zimmer and electro-acts in the line of AphexTwin leave their mark in the music of Perfect Storm.

COMPELLING
Perfect Storm prefers melody to musical showoff powerhouse, but does not shy away from a compelling instrumental passage or an impressive solo. Catchy melodies and a striking energetic attitude, however, make the dynamic music accessible above average. Thanks to the dualistic vocals between man and woman (à la modern Anathema), a lot of
atmosphere is created - a key word within this group!

NO BABIES
Gert-Jan has already earned his spurs in and around Groningen as a guitarist in various settings. The other members of Perfect Storm are also anything but babies in the scene. For example, lead singer Adel Saflou from Syria is active in the underground favorite Ambrotype. Keyboardist / singer Ard Offers, drummer Jesse Bosman, bassist David
Klompmakers and lyricist / singer Hiske Oosterwijk are also active in various acts. Their varied backgrounds provide a joint sound that is difficult to place in a box. But there is no doubt that this is the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane!

DEBUUTALBUM "NO AIR"
After various home recordings and recording sessions in several recording studios, the impressive debut album "No Air" is now ready. Finally: Vlerk, known for his illustrations for the Vera pop venue in Groningen, is responsible for the artwork. To once again indicate that Perfect Storm goes purely for quality.
