If you’re into the likes of Pearl Jam or Alice in Chains, then you really do have to give Progstone a listen. Where the road ends and the desert begins, Progstone distils a both crude and melodic rock whose energy demands to be released on stage.
Born 4 years ago in Switzerland as a four-piece stoner/grunge/progressive band, Progstone released a debut short effort in 2012 with an EP called in the wild before to make its first steps on stage. A first conclusive try for the band which needed then to move forward to make a real “professional” album.
In 2014, Progstone releases their long-awaited first studio full-length effort (Shape, Worry Blast) and the least we can say is that the group does not skimp on resources! Recorded at the Alternative Recording Studio in Sion (Switzerland), mixed in Seattle’s (USA) at London Bridge Studio (Pearl Jam – Alice InChains – Soundgarden…) and mastered in Los Angeles by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers,…), the album is available right now through Chamosound Records and a bunch of songs are up for streaming on ReverbNation.
