Even when the volume gets cranked up in rafter-rattling, heavy metal fashion, it’s still all about the songs and hooks. That’s what sets Deadwood Stone apart, evidenced by the Grand Rapids hard-rock band’s first full-length studio CD, recorded over two years with David James at Double D Productions. It also helps to have blistering guitars, a full-throated lead singer and a thunderous rhythm section when navigating the soft-to-loud dynamics in this 10-track release from the four-year-old band. Singer Chris Phillips, guitarist Dave Droski, bassist Fred Droski and drummer Nate Bishop put passion into their product, which is likely why they’ve been tabbed to open for a host of national acts.
Deadwood Stone hosts a CD-release show at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 30, at The Intersection, with Uncommon Road, Bled Life, Society Kills and Gunship Radio ($5 advance, $7 day of show).
