Four years have passed since Central California’s death metal unit, Etched In Stone unleashed their debut album, ‘Emulate The Defiler.’ Following that the band was forced to take an unexpected break as they dealt with multiple shifts in their line up. This also led to numerous setbacks in recording their follow up album, which was originally intended for release in Summer 2013.
Despite the many setbacks and only releasing the single ‘At the Altar of Lethe’ in 2013, Etched In Stone have pushed on, refining their sound and recording the remaining tracks as time allowed. They are finally set to release their sophomore album, “The Failure of Modern Man,” this June.
Etched In Stone vocalist/producer Brian Lewis, had the following to say about the forthcoming release: “Releasing this album, for me at least, is a form of much needed closure. We’ve been hard at work on it for nearly 3 years and have had several discouraging setbacks and battles along the way, so I’m not only overjoyed that Etched in Stone is finally able to bring something new and entirely different from what we’ve ever done before to the table, but it’s enthralling to finally be able to say IT IS FINISHED!
We are boldly stepping into new territory with this album musically and The Failure of Modern Man is a damn good indicator of what the future of Etched in Stone’s sound holds!”
“The Failure of Modern Man,” is set for release on June 24, 2014, and is the long awaited follow up to Etched In Stone’s debut full length, “Emulate The Defiler,” which the band self released in March 2010. “Emulate The Defiler” can be streamed in it’s entirety at this location.
