CAST THE STONE (feat. MISERY INDEX, CATTLE DECAPITATION and SCOUR members) Sign With Agonia Records





US-based death/black metal act CAST THE STONE re-emerge with a new record deal with Agonia Records. CAST THE STONE first began in 2002 as the original project between guitarist Mark Kloeppel of Misery Index, bassist Derek Engemannof Scour and Cattle Decapitation and drummer Jesse Schobel of Legend/ex-Scour, prior to their departure into their current metal-scene mainstays. Rounded out by vocalist Andrew Huskey, the band will release new music in their original line-up in 2018.
Through years of successful touring and record creation within the membership's other very well known projects, an attitude was fostered of "how would we do this now"? CAST THE STONE returns not as some metal supergroup, but as a project of the original and purest intent of its membership. To be blunt, without CAST THE STONE, the vast majority of the Misery Index discography, Cattle Decapitation's seminal "Monolith of Inhumanity" and "The Anthropocene Extinction" albums, and Scour with Philip H. Anselmo, would not exist. Therefore, CAST THE STONEhas re-emerged to claim its rightful place in music history, as well as the future.

Teaming up with Agonia Records, the quartet has fully hit their creative stride with masterpieces of sonic devastation that honor their roots and original intent alongside their prowess of experience. Metal maniacs weaned on the dark ferocity of Norwegian black metal, the punishingly surreal assault of Edge of Sanity, or the demonstrative brutality of death metal, will find something evocative and provoking within CAST THE STONE. These savage elements collide with combustible energy against the near psychedelic, progressive, and technical excursions, all intermingled with atmospheric groove. Combined, it’s a testament to an enduring spirit that’s driven the band to take their own organic influences, merge them together, incorporate disparate elements, and forge their own sound.


CAST THE STONE commented: "With Agonia Records at the helm, and the sheer pedigree of our membership in CAST THE STONE (MISERY INDEX, SCOUR, CATTLE DECAPITATION), we promise a stellar conjuring of darkness, and a steadfast willingness to churn limitless blackened hymns into the widening gyre".

Upcoming dates:
Mark Kloeppel and Derek Engemann will be appearing at the North American Music Merchants (NAMM) show this weekend (27th of January) in Anaheim, California at the Anaheim Convention Center to demonstrate their signature guitar pedals at the Amptweaker booth #4034, and will be giving a live performance at the Peavey Electronics Stage at booth 201 A-B on Saturday 1/27 at 3:30pm.

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…
