The time has come for us to lay down some new music. We’ve been working on these songs for three years, with many of the riffs and ideas having in fact first been developed up to eight years ago. Drum tracking is underway – and we have all been reminded of how gruelling recording can be. But we’re extremely excited about this album; it will represent some real growth for us, with some more progressive ideas, lots of interesting guitar sounds, some very desolate sections, and of course, a lot of our melodic riffs. We will be telling a story with this album, and can’t wait to share it with fans.
If you’re interested in listening to the remastered version of Stone’s Reach, but don’t have a vinyl player (or if you prefer digital formats), you can now grab this release on our Bandcamp page. This master has much more dynamic range than the album’s original release.
A message from Jimmy as Be’lakor prepares to enter the studio:
“Unfortunately, over the last 12 months, I’ve had a number of health issues which have prevented me from being able to drum for the band. Whilst I am well on the road to recovery now, I will be sitting this next recording out. Fortunately, stepping into my shoes for the album recording and subsequent 2015 touring will be Elliott Sansom, who drums for our friends Okera, The Seaford Monster and Heisenberg. Elliott also played drums on our recent Australian tour. Thanks for your support guys! – Jimmy”
For the audiophiles out there, we are happy to present a 2LP gatefold vinyl version of Stone’s Reach. It has been re-mastered specifically for vinyl. You can find it in the ‘store’ section in the links above.
In the coming days we will also be making a digital version of this remastered version available (via our bandcamp page) – so keep an eye out for that if you’d like to get a hold of the digital audio!
Having last visited Europe in 2012, we are really excited to be returning in 2015.
We have been confirmed to play at BRUTAL ASSAULT Festival in the Czech Republic, August 5-8 (our second time there), and ROCKSTADT EXTREME FEST in Romania, August 12-15 (our first time). We are also honoured to have been confirmed at SUMMER BREEZE FESTIVAL in Germany, August 12-15. This will be our third time playing in Dinkelsbuhl.
More shows will be announced very soon!
