Limited vinyl LP pressing. A Storm in Heaven is the debut studio album by the English rock band The Verve, at the time known just as Verve, released in June 1993 on the Hut label. It charted at #27 in the UK. A Storm in Heaven originated during the band's four-week stay outside of Llandudno, Wales. After the autumn 1992 Gravity Grave tour, they relocated to Sawmills Studios in Cornwall where sessions were recorded with producer John Leckie for seven weeks. Like the band's prior EPs and singles, most of the songs on this album are bathed in heavy layers of delay (echo) and reverb, used on both the guitars and the vocals, to give a disorientingly psychedelic overall effect. After this album, the band's music moved in a less psychedelic, more structured direction, and their name was officially changed to The Verve for legal reasons, so as not to clash with the record label Verve Records. As with all of the band's releases, A Storm in Heaven features enigmatic artwork designed by Brian Cannon. The cover photo was shot inside Thor's Cave in Staffordshire, England.
