Storm is the sixth studio album by the Norwegian gothic metal band Theatre of Tragedy, released in March 2006. It is the band's first album with a new lead singer Nell Sigland. The song "Storm" was released as the album's only single. The album shows something of a return to gothic metal, although its sound is much lighter and more upbeat than that of earlier albums and it still uses modern English lyrics. The band embarked on a European tour to support the release.

The cover art was designed by Thomas Ewerhard, who also made the covers for Assembly and Forever Is The World.[6]

The song "Senseless" was originally titled "Seven", as it is written in septuple meter and is the seventh track on the album.
