Founded in August 2000 by Günter (drums) and David (guitar), the German band was soon completed by Pfanny (bass), Malte (keyboards), Daniel (guitar) and Sabrina (vocals).
Stormgarde made it's first public appearance at the Rockover Hittorf 2001 and won the viewers choice award at a hometown newcomer festival the same year. After several local gigs, David (guitar) left for personal reasons in October 2002, Malte (keyboards) followed suit in October 2003. The keyboard spot was taken over by Sascha Risseler (ex-Ninnghizhidda), who also produced their first demo-CD in 2004 featuring the songs Everything (I d id was wrong), Fear, The Nightstorm and Left Alone. In July 2005, Stormgarde successfully showcased themselves in front of their biggest Metal audience so far at the Fear of The Dong Festival (featuring Skyclad and Finntroll). Since August 2005, the complete demo including cover artwork can be downloaded for free at www.stormgarde.com while the band works on new material for the first LP CD.
