Stone The Martyr

Stone The Martyr is a Melodic Thrash Metal band from the Jersey shore. Formed in 2009, they have been heard thrashing the NJ/Tri-state area ever since. The band's sound can best be described as old school meets modern metal which lends them appeal to a wide range of audiences. Their self-titled EP is a gritty, high-energy work of art with themes of freedom and liberating oneself from various forms of oppression. “INTENSE is the key word here when listening to Stone The Martyr. [Their music] rips right through the core of the listener, yet it leaves us with a craving for more and more.”-Jim Noviello, Musician/ Radio DJ/ Recording and Mastering Engineer
The band's key influences (Metallica, Pantera, Megadeth, etc.) can be heard resonating in every note, yet nobody can deny their uniqueness. “Stone The Martyr takes Thrash Metal and turns it into a symphony.”-Patrick Keenan, Owner of Rat Promotions/ Host and DJ of The Ratclusive
Stone The Martyr kicks off their EP with Corrupting All You Are, a song about contempt for people with a duplicitous nature and transforming one's existence by shedding this negativity from your life. Immediately following is The Sky Will Cry which speaks of feeling trapped by a greater force and seeing death as the only liberation, ultimately finding your own salvation. Up next is Breaking The 7th Seal which paints a picture of what it might be like to traverse the world in an apocalyptic situation. All in all, Stone The Martyr's self-titled EP is a journey through unrelenting darkness with powerful undertones and an in your face look at humanity as a whole.
In a simple manner, we are what heavy metal used to be. Raw, aggressive and technical. We have our roots in classic thrash, but we put a modern spin on it. We think this brings a musicianship not seen in most bands. The members of Stone The Martyr play multiple instruments and many styles of music, but what it comes down to is this: metal is what we enjoy most. Especially because it transcends so many styles and genres. These are our baby steps toward something much bigger. Keep your eyes and ears open and be sure to SEE US LIVE!” - Stone The Martyr
