Stoneburner release second album “Life Drawing” on Neurot Recordings

0 Comment

stoneburnerSTONEBURNER, from Portland, Oregon release their second album “Life Drawing” on Neurot Recordings in just two weeks time.

Formed in early 2008, the bands’ familial roots reach back twenty years. Drummer Jesse McKinnon (ex-Buried Blood) and guitarist Jason Depew (Buried At Sea) have played together in many incarnations. Their other bands had similarly earth-choked names (a stone burner is a subterranean weapon from the novel Dune), but it gets even more incestuous — Jesse went to school with bassist Damon (Heathen Shrine) Kelly’s step-mother. Years later, Jesse’s father would be Damon’s high school government teacher.

You’ll get some anticipation of how Stoneburner sound from the list of bands they have shared the stage with: Yob, Sleep, EYEHATEGOD, Neurosis, Buzzov-en, Weedeater, Saint Vitus, Watain, Tragedy, Noothgrush, Graves At Sea, Lord Dying, Drop Dead, Whitehorse, Wind Hand, Bastard Noise and etc.

Stoneburner is:
Elijah Boland – guitar
Jason Depew – guitar
Damon Kelly – bass/vox
Jesse McKinnon – drums/vox
