Stonecast – I Earther (I Wanter More Space Metal)

  Wow, what do you know, I was ripping on power/melodic and whatever else metal a week or so ago and here we are again. Is this the end? The artwork by Stan Decker would seem to suggest so, but I do have some kind words today, at least for Stonecast, and at least a […]

The album has received […]

These guys have been supremely ripped on by some sites out there, or have been bullied, if you will. I can see why, yet I have to disagree with some of the upper classmen varsity banter. Yo, Candle isn't trying to be the best, they just want to fit in. Almost everything about the presentation […]
