Stone Sour Renew Their Fury on ‘Gravesend’ – Song Premiere

Stone Sour has premiered “Gravesend,” a brand-new song from their upcoming album, House of Gold & Bones Part 2, exclusively on! Writer RJ Cubarrubia says of the track, “Stone Sour rage like an inferno. Walls of distortion and pummeling, mid-tempo drums crash with [Corey] Taylor‘s growls and barks, but within the chaos comes clarity: ‘I was only 18 when I finally let go,’ he sings.” Head over there now to hear it!

Stone Sour “House of Gold & Bones – Part 2″ Album Review

ss_hogab2ArtistDirect‘s Rick Florino posted a review of Stone Sour‘s upcoming album – “House of Gold & Bones – Part 2″. Below you can read an excerpt from the interview.

The second half of their ambitious double concept album closes out the narrative with an incendiary conclusion—and the best music of the band’s career to date. In a stroke of genius, not only do they tell a universally identifiable story of a man at life’s crossroads, but they also get more intimate than ever before. This is as close to Stone Sour as you’ll ever be, and you’ll feel that wonderful fire forever.


Stone Sour – “Do Me A Favor” Music Video Premiere

Check out the official music video for “Do Me A Favor” off of Stone Sour‘s “House Of Gold & Bones Pt. 2″ Corey Taylor - Slipknot

Corey Taylor: “The ‘Do Me A Favor’ video is actually based loosely on a part of the short story that happens towards the end. It’s a lot of action and fire. All the main characters are there: The Human, Allen, Peck, Black John and the Numbers… It’s a great ride.”
