The band's publicist also commented:
"Formed in Belgrade, Serbia, under the name Stone to Flesh in 1996, The Stone has, since its inception, grown to become an internationally recognized Black Metal band with a plethora of releases, tours, festivals and live appearances under its belt. The Stone's first full-length album 'Some Wounds Bleed Forever' appeared on CCP records in 2000 and was followed by several more releases before the band came to the attention of the cult German label Folter Records in 2006. In a move that was to bring The Stone to the attention of fans world-wide, Folter released the band’s fourth full length album 'Magla.'
"Over the next few years there were releases and re-release of more material in different formats, including the 'Live Curse from the East' DVD, but essentially The Stone spent this time building on the success of 'Magla' and becoming more and more familiar to concert goers thanks to their dynamic live performances. 2009 saw the release of the band’s fifth full length album 'Umro' on Folter Records, and their sixth full length album 'Golet' appeared in late 2011, once again on Folter Records and showed the band at its most mature and skilled to date, with praise being heaped on the album from journalists and fans alike.
"The Stone’s current lineup comprises Nefas on Vocals, Kozeljnik and Demonetras on Guitars, L.G. on Drums and Usud on Bass Guitar. More information about The Stone can be found on the band’s website at this location." More...
Following the departure of three members from underground Black Metal band ORCRIST, their places were virtually immediately filled by Goblin from the Norwegian band ISVIND on vocals, and Mane from DEFIXIO on guitars and bass.
An Italian band with a long history of co-operating with Norwegian musicians, ORCRIST recently released a split 7” with BEASTCRAFT, and is currently collaborating with DESEKRATOR’s Tore Bratseth to release a split with the now legendary band OLD FUNERAL; a band which at various times included Varg Vikerness, Abbath and Demonaz amongst its ranks. Both releases are on the TEMPLE OF DARKNESS label.
Grav, drummer and founder member of ORCRIST had this to say; “I have always made it clear that I wanted Orcrist to remain underground and play real, old-school black metal, raw and dirty, and I believed that the rest of the band wanted that too. But you know how it is, the lure of possible fame and money is too much sometimes and I was being pressurised into producing something more “commercial”. It’s not what I do, and it’s not what I want to do, so I suggested to the others that they might want to play in a different band!"
“Shortly afterwards I was talking to Goblin who was going to do some guest vocals on our new album, and he immediately said he would be prepared to join. Not long after I was talking to Mane who said he would be more than happy to write and do the guitars and fill in on bass. Both are musicians who I greatly admire and for whom I have always had maximum respect, so what was a negative turned into a positive within hours”.
Songs from the split with BEASTCRAFT and other ORCRIST titles can be heard on the band’s MySpace page.
Goblin (drums/bass/vocals), of cult Norwegian black metallers ISVIND, will contribute lyrics and vocals on three tracks of the new ORCRIST album, which is currently being recorded at the band’s own studio in their hometown near Milan, Italy. This will not be the first time the two bands have collaborated, having released a split 7” in 2003, although it will be the first time any of the members actually perform together. The music is being written by Orcrist drummer Grav, guitarist Bhaal, and bass player Mattia Zero to Infinity, whilst lyrics for the remaining tracks will be written and performed by the band’s own vocalist Ghosta. A label is being sought. A band known for its traditional, old school approach to Black Metal, Orcrist intend to introduce a change of pace into the new album. More...
