Product Overview

Winds of Plague return with the much anticipated new full-length release, The Great Stone War. A concept record and their most epic and unrelenting offering to date, this album is going to quickly propel the band to the forefront of the American metal scene.

The Great Stone War is the product of a band maturing greatly and coming into their own throughout two years of unrelenting worldwide touring. This new album also marks the recording debut of drummer Art Cruz and keyboardist Kristen Randall adding a whole new layer of dynamics to the band's already devastating arsenal of metallic fury and angst. The disc was recorded once again with Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, A Love Ends Suicide) and mixed by the legendary Tue Madsen (Himsa, The Haunted). This offering could be best described as the soundtrack to Armageddon with each track becoming extremely epic in scope. Winds of Plague encompasses a juxtaposition of Scandinavian black metal, classic American metal and overall brutality, which will have them reign supreme among their peers.

Belying their Southern Californian provenance with a deadly brew of extreme, Nordic-inspired metallic fury, Winds of Plague specialize in a head-kicking, stentorian sound that's melds symphonic metal and deathcore. Their sophomore album, THE GREAT STONE WAR (2009), continues the blend of continental and stateside influences that defined their 2008 debut, DECIMATE THE WEAK. A finely honed yet relentless blitzkrieg of blast-beats, thrashing riffs, and lead singer Johnny Plague's "Cookie Monster" gutturalisms, contrasted with nearly Classical-sounding orchestral and keyboard textures, THE GREAT STONE WAR injects some much needed life into an increasingly hidebound metal scene.
Artist Bio
Winds of PlagueThe group formed in 2002 under the moniker Bleak December and changed their name to Winds of Plague in 2005 before releasing their debut offering A Cold Day In Hell on Recourse Records. They spent most of the following summers and school breaks on the road touring with the likes of Bleeding Through, Too Pure To Die, A Love Ends Suicide, The Taste of Blood and many others. A flurry of touring activity came in the summer of 2007 on "The American Uprising Tour" a lengthy trek with Catherine, Beneath The Sky, Born of Osiris and At The Throne of Judgment. This led them immediately into a massive U.S. run alongside Suicide Silence and Despised Icon to wrap up the year.Decimate The Weak was recorded with Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, A Love Ends Suicide) and mixed by the legendary Tue Madsen (Himsa, The Haunted). This offering still retains the band's hardcore roots while the atmospheric sounds of Scandinavian black metal and classic American metal reign supreme.
