Acrassicauda, Stone Magnum, Gorematory, Corrupt Leaders, Iron Force, Stone Magnum

Take the number of metal bands who sing about war, death and destruction. Subtract it from the number of metal bands with personal experience of such matters. If you arrive at the number minus 345 billion then you've done the math correctly. If you want real talk about war then you should meet the members of Acrassicauda. Formed in 2001, Acrassicauda is an Iraqi thrash metal band. The band formed and played concerts when Iraq was under the regime of Saddam Hussein. During the invasion of shock and awe, and the subsequent American occupation many friends and family were killed. Their practice space was blown to bits and they started to receive threats from the death squads of militants that roamed the streets.

After leaving everything behind, they were forced to live like refugees running from Baghdad to Syria to Turkey. Acrassicauda met the band Testament backstage at a concert in Turkey, and when they arrived in the United States, found a mentor in Alex Skolnick, lead guitarist, who helped them practice and get ready to record their first EP. Like a wounded lion roaring in pain, every note and every riff of these songs is born from pain, agony, and strife and that can only stem from the experiences that they themselves lived. But just as they've lived their lives in the last seven years, Acrassicauda transcend mere negativity to make a beautiful, angrily hopeful record that's as real as it comes.

Stone Magnum

Stone Magnum from Michigan City, Indiana is an entity of sorrow, misery and woe. With a style rooted in dark, hook laden, doom metal, Stone Magnum draws influence from the music of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Trouble, Bedemon and The Obsessed to name a few.
While singing about politics, hope, motorcycles, and fantasy worlds may be cool to some, Stone Magnum's subject matter expresses thoughts and feelings emptier than what most people will ever have the unfortunate circumstance to know. "What causes one's soul to slip into emptiness and their mind to illness, and what feelings are truly evoked? You have to go to that place in order to understand it" , exclaims Stone Magnum.
In the Spring of 2010, Stone Magnum began recording the first full length album entitled "Church Of The Fallen Priest". Immediately following the creation of the first song, "The Fallen Priest", Stone Magnum began receiving offers from several record companies but the choice was clear. An established Die-Hard Metal RIP Records based in Chicago will handle Stone Magnum's affairs such as album releases, local shows as well as tours.
