If flaccid, identikit, breakdown-laden “metal” is the disease, NECROMANCING THE STONE is the cure. With their upcoming debut full-length, “Jewel Of The Vile“, the group – featuring current/former members of Arsis (James Malone, guitars), The Absence (Jeramie Kling, drums),The Black Dahlia Murder (Ryan “Bart” Williams, bass) and Brimstone Coven (guitarist Justin Wood and vocalist “Big” John Williams) – plans to vanquish “Breakdownicus Gratuitous” with 11 tracks that are uniquely NECROMANCING THE STONE. They have released a new song “Ritualistic Demise“, and you can hear it below.
Due out August 5th worldwide via Metal Blade Records, “Jewel Of The Vile” is now available for pre-order in various formats at metalblade.com – where the first single, “The Siren’s Call“, is also streaming. If you’ve ever stolen music, now is the time to pay the piper: buy the album and support true heavy metal!
Featuring artwork by Ariel Zucker-Brull and guest appearances by Taylor Nordberg (The Absence, Infernaeon) and Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Nevermore, etc., etc.), “Jewel Of The Vile” immerses the listener in fantastical tales, like those found in fantasy novels, or in the playing of an intense game of D&D. The sparing inclusion of death metal growls for characters within the stories adds an extra dynamic to the already epic vocals, which are backed by gigantic riffs and pulverizing rhythms. From the moment the aptly titled “Crusher” rushes from the speakers, NECROMANCING THE STONE own you. True heavy metal fans, look no further – your salvation has arrived with “Jewel Of The Vile“!
