Their song 'Hollow' is definitely one of the best stonersoings written the last 5 years! The band is currently finishing the recordings for their debut album!
Secondly we will provide management services for one of the fastest growing rock'n roll bands in the south of Holland: Black-Bone. Debut album 'Back To Mayhem'(Roughtrade) produced by Oscar Holleman (e.g. Gorefest, Vengeance, Within Temptation) got raving reviews in the press and these youngsters with an average age of 19 years played over a hundred shows the last years and supported famous acts like Deep Purple, Status Quo, and played aftershows for Slash...to name just a few highlights of their young career!
