is back and better than ever.  The formed in 1992 and have been off on on ever since, featuring Slipknot members and Jim Root, as well as and Ray Mayorga.  In 1997 actually disbanded for years to the chagrin of fans, before reuniting in 2002. House of Gold & Bones Part 1 (Roadrunner Records) is their fourth album, so Stone Sour know that when an does get released, they should expect but the best from the quartet.

The popular metal released their double single, Gone Sovereign and Absolute , in the early fall and immediately received rave reviews from both and critics alike.  The is what every fan expects, plus much, much more.  There is no other metal out there today who are doing what does.  They have an amazing sound that’s all their own, and the die hard to prove it.

House of Gold & Bones Part 1 is a concept idea that the had, and the story will continue with a Part 2.  While hearing the story, the audience finds themselves following a man who is at a psychological, emotional and spiritual crossroads in his life.  When some rock hear the words “concept album,” it’s enough to make some cringe; however, succeeds where many bands have not.

House of Gold & Bones Part 1 is a must have for any fan.  The is Stone Sour’s best to date and is leaving anxiously to hear House of Gold & Bones Part 2.  The also features bass from of Skid Row.  While each and every song is amazing, there are a few that stand out such as The Travelers, Pt. 1, which has a great sound, A Rumor of Skin, which features vocalist Corey Taylor’s infectious vocals and the energetic Taciturn. This is an that will undoubtedly go in the history books as of the best albums of our generation.  will be performing Ozzfest next year, and is currently on promoting the new album.  Hopefully more U.S. dates will be added for next year.  For a list of current shows, click HERE.
