Heavy Blog Is Heavy comments on the launch of Conquistador
“Stone Healer broke out onto the scene back in 2015 with the release of their debut EP He Who Rides Immolated Horses. This album was predominantly of the black metal variety, incorporating many progressive metal and atmospheric elements. With their follow up and debut full-length, the duo have switched gears towards that aforementioned fusion of a more progressive, dissonant death metal sound while channelling their self-proclaimed fanboy-ism for the 90’s grungy rock-n-roll of Alice in Chains. The album fluctuates between those sounds, while venturing into some clean sections reminiscent of older Opeth and refreshingly Akercocke.“
About The Release
Built upon well over a decade of experience as musicians in a variety of projects, Asheville, North Carolina-based duo Stone Healer is excited to announce their incredible debut album, Conquistador. Set for release on Friday, April 30th. Conquistador is the follow up to the groups’ highly praised 2015 EP, He Who Rides Immolated Horses.
Stone Healer is a vessel for sonic intensity and soul-driven melody created by brothers Dave (guitar, bass, vocals) and Matt Kaminsky (drums). Formed in 2015 as a continuation of their work in Autolatry, Stone Healer’s sound has evolved beyond the limitations of regionally-specific progressive black metal into an undefinable blend of rock n roll inspired by Alice In Chains and Ulcerate-style complex dissonant death metal.
Stone Healer’s unconventional blend between multiple styles is further upped significantly by their truly ambitious songwriting in order to create a listening experience on Conquistador that doesn’t sound like anyone else out there. Stone Healer – Conquistador is highly recommended for fans of bands who have inspired the project which includes Ulcerate, Krallice, Helheim, Dodheimsgard, Paradise Lost, Kvelertak, and Alice In Chains.
