“They’re sludgy yet technical, like early versions of Kylesa, Baroness, and Mastodon. But Stonecutters are thrashier and more shredtastic. The Louisville, KY band includes guitarist/vocalist Brian Omer, who was in a ’90s hardcore band on Century Media called My Own Victim.” - Invisible Oranges “Sign Them Already” [Full Article]
Lousiville KY heavy hitters STONECUTTERS is led by Vocalist/Guitarist Brian Omer, a veteran in the American Metal & Hardcore world. His previous band, My Own Victim (early 90s Century Media hardcore) toured with Suicidal Tendencies, Biohazard, and Marauder. Omer was also in the legendary punk band Hookers and once served a tour playing bass for Slapshot. From the ashes of MOV, Omer enlisted three other like-minded musicians to create punishing, brutal, genre-bending music. With influences reaching across Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Death, Obituary, Neurosis, Motorhead, Agnostic Front, Sick Of It All, Mercyful Fate, and early Metallica, Stonecutters masters a fresh take on nostalgic heavy music.
