"Carved In Stone" (Demo - Independent)

Reviewed by Christopher J. Kelter

Carved In Stone is a thrashy mix of metal and hardcore. This young band shows a lot of promise as it seems their innate hardcore being has been spliced with enough metallic genetic material to walk a path chosen by only a very few bands.

This three track sampler ("Set Me Free," "Success," "Forsaken") combines a fierce edge with inventive heaviness in the guitars to satisfy both metal maniacs and hardcore die-hards.

Carved In Stone is Tom Kerley on drums, Kirt Senser on bass, Brian Kerley on guitar, and Chris Aleshire on vocals.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
