Order »…At The Gates Of Solitude« here:
Stone Nomads is an American metal power trio based in Houston TX. The band, formed by Jon Cosky (guitar/vocals) and Jude Sisk (bass/vocals) in 2021, incorporates the sounds of early doom metal, modern sludge metal and all things heavy. Conceptually, the band explores the journey of life and death through the heavier and darker side of things, delivered via sludged-out, powerful riff-based sonics.
Influences range from Sabbath, Trouble and Candlemass to Crowbar, Conan, Obituary and all things in between. The band has released 1 album (»Fields Of Doom«) and 1 EP (»Fiery Sabbath«) via Austin based label Gravitoyd Heavy Music, and is currently releasing it’s 2nd album (»…At The Gates Of Solitude«) on Oct 19th, 2023 in vinyl, CD and digital formats. The new album’s foundation was laid down by Swedish drum extraordinaire, Esben Willems (Monolord), and features a single with guest vocalist Kyle Thomas (Exhorder, Trouble).
Stone Nomads have shared the stage with scene leaders Khemmis, Spirit Adrift, Elder, Mothership, among others and played multiple festivals and regional tours in the southern US. The band is currently making plans to hit the road in support of the new album in January 2024.
Stone Nomads is:
Jon Cosky – Guitar/Vocals
Jude Sisk – Bass/Vocals
Esben Willems – Drums
Featuring guest vocals by Kyle Thomas (Exhorder/Trouble) on »The Tempter«.
“Sludgy doom goodness is what you get with the debut album from Hou- ston, Texas’ Stone Nomads. Serious Sabbath worship in the best possible way coupled with sometimes gruff sometimes not vocals, Fields Of Doom lumbers across the Texas landscape wrecking everything in its path. Songs like Fiery Sabbath don’t just rip your head off; there is a catchiness to the six tracks that is many times missing when you have such a heavy, lumber- ing beast.” ~ Rich Piva (Doom Charts)
“With grooves that range from low and slow to strident and thrash-like Stone Nomads are the real deal, these guys are no fresh faced newbies trying to find their way in the scene and learning the ropes along the way, these guys have paid their dues and the sound they make together is a fully formed one that will have listeners believing they are lis- tening to a band who have been to- gether from school rather than just one year.” ~ Frazer Jones (Desert Psychlist)
