AOL Music’s Noisecreep is now streaming STONEBURNER’s debut in its entirely! Sickness Will Pass is a monolith of lurching sludge and desperate doom, filtered through the band’s own uniquely charred filter. Go here to check it out.
Here’s the official statement:
Formed in early 2008, STONEBURNER is a down-tuned metal band from Portland Oregon, the members of which are and were involved in Buried At Sea, Buried Blood, Heathen Shrine, Hideous Infant, and Scourge Schematic. Throughout their pained existence, they’ve shared stages with Saint Vitus, Buzzoven, YOB, Nachtmystium, and more (and are clearly no strangers to high-profile gigs!). This past week, they decimated the stage at the mighty SLEEP’s Seattle gig.
As the band themselves say, “We are influenced by a love for all forms of extreme music as well as the trials and stresses of life, and it has been our goal from day one to combine these elements into the heaviest of riffs, with deeply personal lyrics. We’ve found throughout our lives that music is the finest form of dealing with the pain, frustration, and drudgery of our meager existences…if we didn’t have this band, functioning day to day would be almost unbearable. Finally, after four years, we feel that we’ve recorded some shit that does justice to our live intensity, engineered and mixed with the help of our brother in arms Fester (Mongoloid Village, Burials). We are pleased to have Seventh Rule release our debut full-length album, Sickness Will Pass.
STONEBURNER’s Seventh Rule debut is now available! Stay tuned for more details and announcements.
