Stone Circle Crowdfunding For New EP!









Stone Circle announces crowdfunding campaign to record EP in 2016






Progressive metal band Stone Circle (UK) has set up a crowdfunding campaign to aid their next recording, to be done at Bandit Studios (with producer Jonny Renshaw - guitarist for Devil Sold His Soul, ex Mahumodo). The EP will be their 5th release to date and Stone Circle are calling on fans to help contribute towards the recording, including limited edition signed copies of the EP upon its release on pre-order. The band are hoping to raise £1500 to cover the full cost of recording and mastering.

Stone Circle has had several accolades from the press, including Terrorizer Magazine stating: “What with Opeth going all 'full-prog' on us, the time couldn’t be better for a new band to take up the mantle of king purveyors of intelligent, melodic and progressively-minded death metal.” Metal Hammer gave the group 8/10 for their performance at UKTechfest “...Their Opeth and Enslaved-inspired metal is a welcome change for the bill and expertly executed.” Their next release promises to maintain their Progressive Metal edge while staying true to the nature of progressive music.










About the band:


Stone Circle formed in 2004 with Joe Ashwin (Lead Guitar/Vocals), James Pearce (Bass) & Sam Hill (drums), the line-up became complete in 2005 with the addition of Tom Skelton (Rhythm Guitars). Over this time the band developed their sound into the progressive metal that they play today, inspired by Opeth, Katatonia, Morbid Angel, Gojira, Amorphis and more.

In 2006 Stone Circle recorded their first EP - Parchment - with Dominic Young (well known for being the live sound technician for Sikth). This year marks the 10th anniversary of the release.

After a relocation to Brighton to study music, the band then worked on their first full-length album, also recorded with Dominic Young, in October of 2009. The album “Myth” was released at the end of 2010 through Glasstone Records.

Additionally, Stone Circle featured on the Brighton Institute of Modern Music album “Whats in your head: Volume II”, becoming the first band of the genre to be included in the institution's showcase collection.

Stone Circle released their fourth (self-titled) release in Terrorizer Magazine at the end of 2014 and are currently working on material for their next EP, scheduled for recording in 2016.

Stone Circle has had several notable performances, including supporting: Orange Goblin, Evil Scarecrow, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Breed 77, Ill Nino, Sylosis, Abhorrent Decimation and festival appearances at Bloodstock Festival, Download Festival, UKTechfest & Mammothfest.

Rock Duo SONS Release Video Single 'Marco' Raising Awareness Of Mental Health & Gun Control

Brighton punk rockers are back and hitting hard once again with their new video single 'Marco'. They have released a powerful video to accompany the song which was directed by Graham Cullis.

Check out the video for 'Marco' below:




The band states that: "The Message in this video is primarily to promote mental health illness awareness and how we need to cure the mind to help prevent tragedy that often occurs due to ignorance of others dismissing the people that need help." 

Although ‘Marco’ was inspired by shootings in the USA such as the Stoneman Douglas High School incident and the YouTube attack in this video shows that gun control is something that needs to be addressed globally. As well as some cases in the US the video also shows footage of the Nairobi mall massacre in Kenya and the aftermath of the Dunblane Primary School in Scotland. SONS are fully behind any campaign aimed at tightening gun laws and making people more responsible with their firearms so th…

Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio's, Hackney and tracked by Steve 'Geezer' Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), ‘Sentinels’ is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses.


“This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”



Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ‘Sentinels’ in …
