If the the four gentlemen in Northern Ireland’s Soundstone have their way, they will soon be following their countrymen The Answer, into the mainstream.
Their three song EP, Scratchin’ At My Door is a modern rock CD that has a sound with elements of 70’s classic rock, and a small bit of 80’s hard rock. The tunes are good enough for current rock fans to digest, and could easily work on rock radio today.
Adrian McAleenan has some very cool guitar solos. Declan Bannon’s vocals are pretty good. His sound reminds me of a cross between Andrew Stockdale from Wolfmother, and a small dash of Ian Astbury from the Cult.
Scratchin’ At My Door shows a lot of promise for this Irish four piece. I hope they put out a full length disc for us to listen to soon.
To here these songs, and ton find more information on Soundstone, check them out on their myspace page.

‘Another Suicide’, the controversial new song from the Imperial Vipers is finally being released by the band as a free download after fans inundated them with messages urging them to make it available. Originally held back by record label bosses due to the sensitive nature of the lyrical content, the band are finally bowing to demand on the back of another tragic loss of young life in the Bridgend area of south Wales.
Written in the summer of last year, ‘Another Suicide’ is a cutting and highly accurate criticism of the way in which suicide is viewed by society, and how too often these tragedies are overlooked and dismissed as the norm in many parts of the country by the media and politicians alike. The line, ‘And the policeman said; it’s just another suicide’ reflects perfectly the tone set by the rest of the song and the message the band are desperate to get across – something needs to be done.
The single will be available as free analogue download from the Imperial Vipers Myspace page www.myspace.com/imperialvipers from today for a limited period and will feature on the forthcoming Steve Power produced album ‘The Sickness’, which continues the trend of intelligent and astute social commentary delivered with a rock edge.
Currently previewing material from the new album at a series of gigs around the UK, the band will be appearing at a number of festivals throughout the summer including a headline slot at the Goldcoast Oceanfest in June.
Five Finger Death Punch is also a late addition to the Rock on the Range Music Festival. The band has a new CD that came out in July 2007, called Way of the Fist. Check out the video for the Bleeding below.
You decide, SINK or SWIM. If you say SWIM, we will review this disc at the Hard Rock Hideout. If you say SINK, we will pass on this disc, and move on to the next band.
