CELLAR STONE – One Fine Day (2020)
Groove. Lots of hard rock groove is what you’ll get with CELLAR STONE‘s new album “One Fine Day“. This 4-piece comes from Greece and is made up of experienced musicians from the local rock scene, very professional and really skilled writing songs.
There’s a melodic hard rock sense on these tunes as well, inspired by the 70s and 80s yet served with a modern sound production.
The genesis of Cellar Stone sparked by a conversation between George Maroulees (guitar, Diviner / 4Bitten) and Aris Pirris (vocals, Persona Non Grata). The two of them immediately started to work on an album around 2018.
After a while Akis Rooster (Bass, 4Bitten) & George Karlis (Drums, The Slayerking) joined in and the line up finally completed.
Influenced by the hard rock & metal giants of the ‘70s, ’80s and ’90s such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, UFO, etc, as well as the bands of today like Black Stone Cherry or Shinedown, they are making their own statement in a characteristic way.
The ten songs here sound very strong, melodic and modern, whereby a well-balanced mixture of feeling and heaviness is displayed.
The whole ‘One Fine Day’ is very entertaining, and if you like your hard rock groovy, you should try these Greeks. D.A.D. from Denmark or their compatriots from Badd Kharma could certainly be used as a comparison.
