2021 saw the rise of a fantastic Power Metal band from Australia: ARKENSTONE. With a super powered lineup of guitarist Stu Marshall, Mike LePond on Bass Clay T. playing the drums, and impressive power of Louie Gorgievski on vocals shows why the band has blasted off to a phenomenal start with the release of their first EP Ascension of the Fallen.

Producer/guitarist Stu Marshall says “I have written material for some amazing singers such as UDO, Zak Stevens, Sean Peck and Rob Rock. Louie is a once in a lifetime singer with a power not many can match. The songs are crushing and we have 4 compositions that are perfect to launch the band and demonstrate what we have ahead of us.”
