US-based blackened death metallers CAST THE STONE teamed up with Sick Drummer Magazine to present a drum playthrough video for their recently released single "A Plague Of Light". The track comes from "Empyrean Atrophy" EP, which is set to be released next week on August 31st via Agonia Records. The playthrough is available at this link:
CAST THE STONE is Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index, Scour with Phil Anselmo), Derek Engemann (ex-Cattle Decapitation, Scour), Jesse Schobel (Legend, ex-Scour) and vocalist Andrew Huskey. First formations of the band began in 2002, long before its protagonists departed for their better known metal-scene mainstays. While such ties leave a clear mark, CAST THE STONE emerge not as some metal supergroup, but as a project of the original and purest intent of its membership.
