Stoneghost unleash video for new single ‘Raynardine’

Stoneghost 2015

Fast-rising UK metal band Stoneghost have released a video to accompany their new single “Raynardine.”

The track is lifted from the London band’s debut album New Age Of Old Ways, released in April via the Mascot Label Group.

Speaking exclusively to the UK’s Metal Hammer magazine, Stoneghost say the song is “…unrelenting, dirty, aggressive and has a no nonsense attitude that could only be portrayed in a video that embodies all of these qualities. Filth goes hand in hand with this song. We knew the video needed to show the beast it is in its natural habitat. A grime-ridden dungeon.”

In our 7/10 review of New Age Of Old Ways Skin Back Alley said: “London’s fast-rising metal hopefuls Stoneghost have delivered a towering debut full of grunt and groove. From such promising beginnings are mighty metal careers forged. With a lot of hard work and a little luck it’s not too hard to imagine Stoneghost developing in to one of the UK’s heavy music finest.”

Album Review: Stoneghost, ‘New Age Of Old Ways’

Review by: Graeme Blackwell

“London’s fast-rising metal hopefuls Stoneghost have delivered a towering debut full of grunt and groove.”

Grab yourself a fucking huge melting pot. Add two parts groove metal to one part metallic grunge. Throw in a pinch of sludge and a soupçons of sunset strip guitar riffery. Mix well then leave to boil in the raging fires of Hades.

Result? The towering debut album from London’s fast-rising metal stars Stoneghost.

Winning plaudits from pundits in all areas of the rock and metal community, one listen to New Age Of Old Ways leaves you with no problem understanding why. Not since Pantera evolved in to the all-conquering groovemeisters of Yore have a band delivered this stunning style of metal in such an accomplished fashion.

From the brain-busting, face-melting opening salvo of “Faceless Ghost” onward, Stoneghost deliver riff-after-groove-after riff, never short of ideas to keep heart and mind engaged. Indeed, were they still active, the thundering funk of “Devil’s Motion” would have had Infectious Grooves quaking in their boots. One suspects that should he hear this monstrous record, Rob Trujillo’s ear will definitely be pricked.

Jason Smith’s range as a vocalist is hugely impressive, running the gamut from full-bore death metal growl to nuanced, gritty emotive howl. Equally astonishing are Chris Finiss’ and Jamie Nash’s flexible and agile rhythmic punch, and Andrew Matthews’ guitar pyrotechnics.

From such promising beginnings are mighty metal careers forged. With a lot of hard work and a little luck it’s not too hard to imagine Stoneghost developing in to one of the UK’s heavy music finest. No pressure then. Whatever the future holds, New Age Of Old Ways is a remarkable start, and plenty to keep the appetite satiated for some time to come.
