Stone Cold Dead is a peculiar band. George Bokos (ex-Rotting Christ/ex-Nightfall guitarist) has formed a very interesting and heavy band, but also interestingly heavy! They somehow combine the three elements of their name as they play a mixture of stoner, and death metal with dark, eastern, and prog elements. They even use bowed contrabass and baritone guitars.They even have three drummers!! Yes you read it right. Other bands have three guitarists, or two bass players… these guys have three drummers. The drummers don’t perform all together though. Each one has his special section in the album. Do you want to hear the names of the drummers? Well, of course you do; George Kolliascoming straight from the catacombs of Nile, Archon Vorskaathrising from the darkness ofZemial andYannis Stavropoulos (Jazz master). Each one of them brings his personality and armory to the band and the outcome makes Lava Flows a truly extraordinary album. You really have to listen to it.
Stone Cold Dead are: Heavier than TooL, less industrial than Killing Joke, more brutal than Grip Inc, less guitar oriented than Mastodon, more technical than Soulfly, less djent than Tardive Dyskinesia, more LG Petrov than Entombed, less stoner than Nightstalker, more metal than Godsmack, less disturbing than Disturbed, more atmospheric than Sepultura, less oriental than System of a Down, more progressive than Machine Head, less groovy than Clutch, and definitely have more drummers than anyone else.
