The first album of the Swedish doomsters Stonegriff, "Prologus Magicus," will be released on August 30th via Metal on Metal Records. The label comments:
"With a vintage sound, which is both heavy and dark, organic and vivid, their debut brings crushing riffs, and vocals with a particularly wide rage and tons of charisma. Their music is relatively simple and therefore effective - this band gets straight to the point. Stonegriff can be best compared to Krux, while it's rather obvious that their main influence are the forefathers of the genre, Black Sabbath. Fans of Trouble, Pentagram, Candlemass, Nomad Son, Spiritus MOrtis, and Las Cruces should dig them too."

"We dig death/doom in many cases, but most of all, when we say 'doom,' we mean traditional and epic doom METAL. And in our opinion, there are rather few bands that play this purest style of the heaviest music and do it with real class and with balls, so when we come across one, there's a big smile plastered on our faces as we hit the 'play' button over and over again. Such was the case with Stonegriff. More...
