Biography

Stormsterk was founded by Mark Kwint some years ago. Inspired by traditional Folk music like ‘Folkcorn’ and heavier bands like ‘Otyg’ and also influenced by the nature and tales of the Veluwe area, he began to write music and lyrics. The ideas piled up but weren’t elaborated.
Then, after the musical cooperation in the Dark Folk Rock band ‘Faelwa‘ and the completion of the MCD ‘Farewell Sun’ in 2009, Mark en Jasper began to play more Folk music. In a spontaneous way, they began to make songs based on Mark’s narrative lyrics. With musical input from both members and Jasper’s music production skills, one song after another was created.

The music is mostly played on acoustic instruments and supported by drums, bass, hammond organ and various non-conventional instruments. Everything is done by Mark and Jasper except some guest performances like female vocals and hurdy gurdy.

In august 2010 they completed their debut album ‘Wild en Bijster Land’, which contains 11 songs with various influences. The whole album, including the artwork and production was done by the two members. Only some parts were played by guest performers.
The cd, including a sixteen-page booklet with all the lyrics can be ordered here. The album is also available as free download.
