Stone Magnum Cover Art

Stone Magnum are a Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal Band from Michigan City, Indiana.

The members are:

Guitars: Jim Brucks
Guitar/Vocals: Dean Tavernier
Bass: Marty Buchaus
Drums: Brad Toth

Stone Magnum play a great blend of Sabbath Influenced – Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metal to superb effect. The guys have just released their superb S/T debut album. A 7 song 43 minute album of epic Doom Based Sludge/Stoner Metal Riffs.

The album is full of superb Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs and if you’re into Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus or any of the classic Doom Metal bands then you’re going to find much to enjoy here.

As Stone Magnum’s music does have an old school Doom Metal feel to them but they add a superb modern Sludge/Stoner Metal influence to them as well.

Brilliantly played and produced by everyone involved. This is one album you will be revisiting time and time again.

It might not be the most original thing on the scene at the moment. But it sure is one of the most satisfying Stoner/Doom Metal releases around. And the band do know how to play damn fine mighty Stoner/Doom Metal riff.

The album is full of superb Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal tracks to get your teeth stuck into. Especially “Locksmith Of Misery”, “Rolling Storm” and “Am I Really Insane”.

All in all this is a superb album to check out if you fancy a modern Sludge/Stoner Metal album with references to the good old days of 70’s Doom Metal. And I applaud the band for bringing back a little bit of history to their music.

You can own this great release on BandCamp Pay Anything You Want Type Deal.

Superb Stuff from a great band to check out.

Highly Recommended.
