STONECAST Return With 3rd Album 'I Earther'

STONECAST album2019

French Heavy/Power metal act STONECAST return with 3rd album, “I Earther”, out on March 8th, 2019.

 

From despair to hope and then to despair once more; there is no end to the cyclic journey. It always begins with such aspirations, such fine ideals and good intentions, but the fatal flaws remain and greed, selfishness and a hunger for power eat away at the noble plans from the moment of their conceiving, until everything collapses in ruins. We compromise our ideals and beliefs as the sky grows dark above us; we repeat the mantra that ‘the ends justify the means’ while we slowly forget what the ends ever were. Only when all we once had is burnt to ashes do we remember our better selves and start to strive towards our dreams once more. This tragic, never ending cycle of inevitable destruction is the story of mankind; and the story of Stonecast’s magnificent third album, I Earther

 

The nature of mankind, the flawed creation, explored through a story that takes us through the absolute ravaging of earth and on into space, in search of new homes that will ultimately be doomed at our hands as well. It’s an incredibly ambitious concept to be contained within the confines of a heavy metal album…but Stonecast have risen to that self-imposed challenge and triumphed in glorious fashion! I Earther possesses a grandeur, fitting to its lofty subject matter, but its melodies are infectious, its hooks utterly addictive and the immediacy of its appeal undeniable. There is a breathtaking depth and texture to the sound, helped in no small part by the mixing skills of Roy Z (Sepultura, Judas Priest, Bruce Dickinson etc), which brings out the full range of emotions explored in these incredible songs. Songs like ‘Goddess Of Rain’ really show a world class band at the peak of their powers – the stunning chorus, the electrifying guitar work, the locked in thunder of the rhythm section and the superb range and delivery of vocalist Franck GhirardiStonecast genuinely have it all.

 

Stonecast’s ascent has been a steady one, from their humble beginnings in the streets of Marseille to the stage of the monstrous Sonisphere festival in 2011, alongside Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. Their second album, 2013s Heroikos hinted at the glories to come and with Rhino (ex-Manowar) behind the kit, brought Stonecast to even bigger audiences and greater critical acclaim. Now, with I Earther, their greatest achievement to date ready to be unleashed Stonecast’s time has come. Be ready for what will surely be one of the greatest heavy metal releases of this year and beyond.

 

The album will be released on CD & Digital and it’s available for pre-order on Bandcamp as well as the Pitch Black Records Online Store. A track is available for streaming and free download below:
