Stonecutters drop new single "Wealth & Power" via MetalSucks

October 17 MetalSucks premiered Stonecutters’ new single.

Few metal albums this year will have as appropriate a title as Carved in Time, the newest offering from Louisville, KY’s Stonecutters. The briefest description of their music would be deathrash in a similar vein to Skeletonwitch and Revocation, but that would also be an oversimplification. Carved in Time draws on influences from across the history of metal, from NWOBHM to classic thrash to death metal to sludge to hardcore to melodeath to… well, you get the idea. Stonecutters expertly synthesize the entirety of metal history into something new, something that’s at once totally destructive and crazy fun, like illegal firecrackers or silently passing gas at a fancy cocktail party.

But don’t just take our word for it — listen for yourself, as today MetalSucks proudly premieres the Timely track “Wealth and Power.”

STONECUTTERS Talk Recording the New Album on GEAR GODS, Announce Summer Tour

Kentucky metal heads STONECUTTERS talk shop on Gear Gods!

Kentucky-based metal band Stonecutters are all about two things: big, sexy riffs and big, sexy gear. And you want a piece of that, right? Well, you’re in luck, because the band just put out an in-depth rundown with guitarist Nick Burks, who talks about some of the guitars he used to track their newest album. So pull up a chair, pop on some headphones, and get ready to talk shop.

In this gear-fueled adventure, Nick gives us the rundown of his DC-400, made by Carvin Guitars. It’s a pretty sweet axe, and Nick gives a very detailed, informative, and above all else, classy breakdown of the instrument and how it was used on the new record. The video is also peppered with plenty of behind-the-scenes studio antics, as well as a listen to some new cuts from the band.

As Nick states in the video, the new Stonecutters record is due out this year, and we simply can’t wait to hear it. And to coincide with the new tunes, the band is hitting the road in late-May on their “Gods & Monsters Tour”. While you wait for the dates (below) to approach, be sure to stream and buy their most recent record Blood Moon from their website and hit ’em up on Facebook.
