Music news, album reviews & interviews
We have yet to featured Stone Mob once before, but we plan on reviewing this group many more times in the near future. This week, we take a look at the rock anthem single 'Requiem'. The group continues to grow a dedicated following, and this is attributed by a reliable track record. Literally. Stone Mob takes this single to new heights, only heard on classic rock albums, and pushes those limits. We look forward to reviewing the full-length album in the near future.
This track alone features an incredible dedication to mastery as a lyricist, but also as a guitarist. This song alone features two bluesy pentatonic guitar solos that connect with the music in a flawless manner. The guitarists' solos aren't just wailing string bending, they are well thought out, melodic mastery. The music itself is classic rock driven, bringing back some nostalgic feeling that today's music does not have. Not forgetting the bass player as well, who contributes so much value to the music. Listening to the track several times, I came back for more on what the bass had to offer in this single.
When reviewing an album or track such as this, I think it's important to note the musicianship. The strong effort that today's underground artists put into their music and this showcases that perfectly. This is what younger musicians will look up to, demonstrating what true talent is.
