Louisville, Kentucky's STONECUTTERS are led by vocalist/guitarist Brian Omer, formerly of My Own Victim, Slapshot and The Hookers. My Own Victim released several albums on Century Media Records and toured with Suicidal Tendencies, Biohazard, Merauder. From the ashes of My Own Victim, Omer enlisted three other like-minded musicians to create the best live show of heavy, punishing, genre-bending music. With influences ranging from Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Death, Neurosis, Agnostic Front, Motorhead and early Metallica. Stonecutters bring a fresh take on nostalgic heavy metal. The band has toured the US extensively, sharing stages with Gwar, Anthrax, Crowbar, Goatwhore, Macabre, Machine Head, Mastodon, Down, Clutch, Sacred Reich, Testament, Misery Index, Deicide, Obituary, Black Label Society...as well as many festivals including Gwarbq, Full Terror Assault, Berzerker, FireBreather, Ogrefest, Doomed and Stoned, SXSW. Stonecutters have released five albums since 2006, most recently the acclaimed Carved In Time.
STONECUTTERS - Carved in Time: In a constantly dissected and highly divided music world, genre-bending is no easy task. Louisville, Kentucky band Stonecutters succeeds with it like very few others have, as proven by their latest release, their fifth studio album Carved in Time. Blending elements of sludge metal, stoner rock, hardcore, thrash metal, death metal, and even tech death to boot, this album is driven by ominous riffs, masterful guitar harmonies, bestial vocals and wild tempo shifts that leave the listener stunned and awe-struck. With Carved in Time, Stonecutters have created their own niche and it's certainly worth a listen.' -Metal Assault
