Formed in Belgrade, Serbia under the name STONE TO FLESH in 1996, THE STONE has, since its inception, grown in to become an internationally recognized Black Metal Band with a plethora of releases, tours, festivals and live appearances under its belt.
The band’s first release, the “Unveiled Evil” MCD appeared in a tape version in 1998 on Demonion Productions and contained both the “Serbian Woods” and “Killed by the Sun” demos. This was followed by THE STONE’s first full length album “Some Wounds Bleed Forever”, which was released on CCP records in 2000. Several more releases followed, until the band came to the attention of the cult German label Folter Records in 2006, who quickly snapped up THE STONE, and released their fourth full-length album “Magla”. This proved to be the move that brought THE STONE to the notice of fans world-wide, and launched the next stage of their career.
The next few years saw the release and re-release of more material in different formats, including the “Live Curse from the East” DVD, but essentially THE STONE spent this time building on the success of “Magla” and becoming known to more and more concert goers thanks to their dynamic live performances. 2009 saw the release of the band’s fifth full length album “Umro” on Folter Records, and the band’s reputation continued to grow.
The release of THE STONE’s sixth full length album “Golet” in late 2011, once again on Folter Records, showed the band at its most mature and skilled to date, with praise being heaped on the album from journalists and fans alike, and set the band on the way to a running start to 2012. Having signed with the UK-based band manager Patricia Thomas, who works with some of the well established, as well as some of the best upcoming Black and Extreme Metal bands in Europe and with Folter Records firmly in their corner, with tours and festivals already lined up for the first half of the year and the release of both “Golet” and “Tragom Hromoga Vuka” in LP format scheduled, THE STONE is more than ready to step up the pace and take the band further than ever before.
