The new album shows 11 heavy rock brand new tracks. Once again Cellar Stone delivers an album with over the top production, strong melodies and massive guitar riffing. With a multi album deal signed with ROAR Records and new touring plans, they are looking forward to gaining new fans and sharing their music all around the world. The entire album was composed by George Maroulees in a small village on an Aegean island during a long lockdown due to COVID in Greece, March-June, 2020. It was the first time that George worked alone composing an album. The songs were then arranged with George Karlis. The band entered the studio in January 2021 to rehearse and record all the material. The COVID pandemic and the impact it has had on people’s lives, especially the music industry, is reflected on the whole album. How uncertain our lives suddenly became, on a global level, is the main theme throughout the music and lyrics.
Lyricist Fofi Roussos comments:
“…the lyrics on this album reflect to a great degree the frustration that people globally were feeling during the pandemic. Although positivity, inner strength and resilience are usually found as an underlying theme in my lyrics, I couldn’t help but try to express the anger and helplessness that everyone was feeling. Politicians and all those people who have everyone’s lives in their hands, the ones calling all the shots… The lyrics on this album are talking to them….”
“Rise & Fall” will be released on July 1st, 2022, as digipak CD, Rose Red/Black Marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies worldwide) and digital streaming and download format.
