Necromancing the Stone’s Ryan “Bart” Williams gives scenic tour of Santa Monica while performing “Ritualistic Demise” bass-play-through


Necromancing the Stone – featuring current/former members of Arsis (James Malone, guitars), The Absence (Jeramie Kling, drums), The Black Dahlia Murder (Ryan “Bart” Williams, bass) and Brimstone Coven (guitarist Justin Wood and vocalist “Big” John Williams) – is currently on tour with label-mates Whitechapel, Cattle Decapitation, Goatwhore, and Allegaeon for a special USA trek that celebrates Metal Blade Records’ 35th anniversary. Unable to join his band-mates on the road for this run, bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams has filmed a bass play-through for “Ritualistic Demise”, taken from the band’s latest album, Jewel Of The Vile. Fans who were hoping to catch Bart “slammin’ da bass” at shows can now watch the video (along with a scenic tour of Santa Monica beach!) at: 

Necromancing the Stone‘s Bart comments: “This is an easy one for bass players to follow along with, so enjoy!”

If flaccid, identikit, breakdown-laden “metal” is the disease, Necromancing The Stone is the cure.

From the moment the aptly titled “Crusher” rushes from the speakers, Necromancing The Stone own you. True heavy metal fans, look no further – your salvation has arrived with Jewel Of The Vile!

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
