Stonewall Noise Orchestra

STONEWALL NOISE ORCHESTRA is a Rock band from Sweden who mix different kinds of influence and creates their own kind of line. They have recently released their newest album "Deathripper" and that’s what we are going to talk about. The opening song from the album is "Deathripper" the one that gave its name to the album and it starts out with a weird vocal sound and some noise guitars that soon turns into groove riffs as the bass, drums and vocals comes in. The vocals are pretty good and I must say that the vocal parts on the chorus are pretty good.

"Gravity" starts out with more aggressive vocals using a little more of drive and straight guitars and bass n' drums sound. There is some nice dynamic here and it get faster and a little bit more astonishing on the chorus. It’s pretty modern metal. "Bones" starts out with a pretty dancing groove guitar riff and some cool solo going on. This song has a kind of swing and I liked that. Its more Rock N' Roll than the previous ones and it shows that the band can write different kind of songs but still sound like their own.

"The Storm" starts out with a nice guitar riff and good melodies coming from the strings. It’s a good song and follows the previous ones. "Evil To-Go" starts out with a cool vocal work and also some percussion which made everything cooler. The guitar solo here is kind of crazy in a good way and I liked it. "Bound to Bend the Truth" starts out with a cool guitar riff and it has a lot of punch. The vocal lines are pretty cool, but the highlight goes to the chorus where it reaches the top point of the song. "Dopamine Dreamland" starts out with a cool bass line and vocals that reminded me of those Indie Rock bands and I think that’s it’s a pretty cool thing. This song has really a good dynamic and it’s a very funny one.

"Imaginary Crown" starts out with a funny vibe that probably comes from the previous song and I loved it. The song alters from lower vocals with calmer instrumental to higher vocals with more aggressive instrumental parts with a beautiful guitar solo that is inspiring. "Satanic Love Affair" is the song that closes the album and it starts out with a cool guitar riff and it’s a pretty cheerful and funny song. The vocal chorus are pretty catchy and the instruments were really well written. Definitely a great choice to end the material.

STONEWALL NOISE ORCHESTRA have written and released a great Rock album with influences and styles of their own. It was my first time listening to these guys and I must say that I am impressed. There were songs that I thought it was a little bit repetitive, but it’s a great album for sure.
