REVIEW: TRACK OF THE DAY - DARK STONE 'SLAVE'

Written by: Maria Haskins

This track from Vancouver-based rock/metal band Dark Stone packs a huge punch and absolutely knocks my socks off – all in less than 3 minutes. Hard rocking with a metal edge, this is a band that delivers on their promise of “raw vocals and a raw guitar sound that is genuine and true, unaltered and unaffected by today’s technological devices”. It is great stuff, and it is definitely worth checking out this band if you’ve got a taste for heavy, hard rock’n’roll. (Who doesn’t?)

Dark Stone is made up of Matt Mintenko on vocals, Jason Mintenko on guitar and vocals, Kato von Essen on bass, and Stefan Grabowski on drums. They have another great track called ‘Tomorrow’ up on Bandcamp, and new music is in the pipe for later this year.
