Incoming! Stone Horns

 

France's STONE HORNS unleashed their third studio album "Chimaira", this past January on Rockshots Records. Featuring seven groove-laden hell-bent tracks, the full-length tells the story of an odyssey of being rejected by all and thirsting for revenge. It explores life's thirst for recognition, whatever its form. Through its various acts, the story continues in different states, colors, and landscapes. A raw, merciless finality that leaves little room for breath in this torment of violence. We're all chasing a chimera, but isn't it the chimera that's chasing us? That's the question this album tries to answer, combining freshness and warmth, violence and peace, waves, and digressions.

With their headbanging groove, this third studio offering "Chimaira" is a culmination of all the band's experiments to date. This is the band's most accomplished album to date, both in terms of composition and production. The band's long-time fans will be satisfied, but they also hope to bring in new fans with this record, with a slightly more modern production. Each track has its own universe on this full length, but it's also part of a whole, because like their previous albums, "Chimaira" is a concept album.

"There's something for every metal taste and color. The aim of this album is for fans of every sub-genre of metal to be able to say to themselves at some point when listening to it: "I really like that beat". "Chimaira" is a bit like the child of "The Beast Inside" (2018) and "Rise of Apophis" (2021)". says the band.

Today, the band is sharing their latest music video for "Grasping the Embers of Exile", the longest track on the album and in the entire Stone Horns' catalog. It is a brutal, hypnotic opening adventure that sets the tone for what's to come. Probably the most melodic and progressive track on the record, it's an ambitious composition reminiscent of some Machine Head pieces, punctuated by a magnificent solo.
