STONEGRIFF "Come Taste the Blood" album details and pre-order.
It's time to announce our April releases, to be out as always at the Keep It True festival, which is on April 24th this year. The first one of them, STONEGRIFF "Come Taste the Blood" is the 2nd album of this Swedish traditional doom metal band, and the 2nd CD we're releasing for them. They keep on following in the genre's forefathers' footsteps, delivering pure, old school and quite straightforward doom metal - it's the best example where less is more and simplicity works. The vocals are particularly noteworthy here, ranging from raspy to clean and somberly bewitching mid-range, to high pitched wails and screams, which have been toned down a bit, appearing just when they're needed most. Fans of KRUX, BLACK SABBATH, CANDLEMASS, PENTAGRAM, SPIRITUS MORTIS, IRON MAN, LAS CRUCES and NOMAD SON should take note!
ATTENTION: We're in Germany for the next 3 weeks, therefore we have changed the postage rates to the most convenient Deutsche Post ones. Thanks to this, you can buy many more items for the same low shipping cost, which is particularly convenient for orders from outside of Europe and within Germany. As a special pre-order offer for STONEGRIFF we've added an option to add a CD of SESTA MARCONI "Where the Devil Dances" (doom'n'roll band from Italy, that unfortunately went on hiatus soon after this CD was released - you can listen to the full album here) for only 3,00 Euro!
You can watch a short promo clip for "Come Taste the Blood" album (featuring a fragment of the title song) at this location or here:
We have also prepared a video clip for the title song, using scenes from the cool "The City of the Dead" (aka "Horror Hotel") movie from 1960 (starring Christopher Lee). And for another song, "SALIGIA", there's the standard static promo clip on our YouTube channel here. In the Bandcamp player on the STONEGRIFF page there's also another song available for streaming, "Valkyrian Quest". The album track listing is as follows:
2. Come Taste the Blood
3. You're Never Alone
4. Claiming the Sky
5. Brother Cain
6. In Doom We Trust
