Mindfeeder is a Portuguese melodic power metal band that was formed in 2003 as Inertia and changed its name after the recordings of its debut, "Rise From The Flames".

From that album, the track "The Traveler Of Minds" gave to the band the 7th place at the 2005 Metal Eurovision Contest among of 40 label bands. In 2006, the band released the EP which was titled "Mind Revolution" and received some very good reviews from the local but, also, from the international press. In 2012, the band started the recordings of their next album at Soundfeeder Studios and the result is this one which is entitled "Endless Storm". The band consists of Leonel Silva (vocals), Nuno Carranca (guitars), Nuno "Piri" Serrador (guitars), Sergio Themudo (bass), Ricardo Martins (keys) and Henrique Sobral on drums.

The album starts off with the heavy in-your-face tune of "The Call". This is a great sample of pure melodic power metal stuff with attitude, powerful vocal performances, a tight rhythm section and an excellent guitar work! "Endless Storm" has a heavier rhythm in it, it's more aggressive and the guitar solo is once solid!! "Feed Your Mind" is among the highlights here; an 80's power metal vibe in it, great arrangements and some high pitched vocal lines in this great track! The track which closes the album, "Our Side Of Life", is another sample of how talented this band is.

Overall, this is an extremely interesting release! This band has an excellent musicianship, plenty of talent, skills and abilities and  I'm sure that we will hear more and bigger things from them in the near future.
