JULY 02nd at The Railyard
Powerhouse rock with a gritty blues edge is what makes Dark Stone
a vibrant new band on the Vancouver music scene. Uniquely original,
Dark Stone has managed to blend classic hard rock with metal and blues.
The result is searing guitar runs from Jason Mintenko, pulsing tight rhythms
from bassist Kato Von Essen and skin pounding drums from Stefan G,
rounded out with raw edgy vocals from both the brothers Matthew and
Jason Mintenko. Lyrically their music reflects having fun, life’s challenges,
second chances, and redemption.
Influences include Megadeth, Metallica, Guns and Roses, Avenged Sevenfold,
Black Label Society, Ted Nugent, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Johnny Lang, The Doors and Alice Cooper.
