NECROMANCING THE STONE premieres guitar play-through for ‘Crusher’ via!


If flaccid, identikit, breakdown-laden “metal” is the disease, NECROMANCING THE STONE is the cure. With their upcoming debut full-length, ‘Jewel Of The Vile‘, due out August 5th, the group – featuring current/former members of Arsis (James Malone, guitars), The Absence (Jeramie Kling, drums), The Black Dahlia Murder (Ryan “Bart” Williams, bass) and Brimstone Coven (guitarist Justin Wood and vocalist “Big” John Williams) – plans to vanquish “Breakdownicus Gratuitous” with 11 tracks that are uniquely NECROMANCING THE STONE.

Today, the band has launched a guitar play-through with Justin Wood for one of those tracks – ‘Crusher’ – via To watch the video, please visit:

For another preview of ‘Jewel Of The Vile‘, the first track, ‘The Siren’s Call’, can be heard – where the record is also available for pre-order in various formats. The second single, ‘Ritualistic Demise’, can be streamed at:

Featuring artwork by Ariel Zucker-Brull and guest appearances by Taylor Nordberg (The Absence,Infernaeon) and Jeff Loomis (Arch EnemyNevermore, etc., etc.), ‘Jewel Of The Vile‘ immerses the listener in fantastical tales, like those found in fantasy novels, or in the playing of an intense game of D&D. The sparing inclusion of death metal growls for characters within the stories adds an extra dynamic to the already epic vocals, which are backed by gigantic riffs and pulverizing rhythms. From the moment the aptly titled “Crusher” rushes from the speakers, NECROMANCING THE STONE own you. True heavy metal fans, look no further – your salvation has arrived with ‘Jewel Of The Vile‘!
