Making their grand return from a 7 year hiatus, Carbonstone are back with a brand new album ‘Dark Matter‘ (released in October 2021) and a follow up single ‘Scream‘ (released in March 2022).
Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, Carbonstone are all about the alternative metal/industrial sound and draw their inspiration from the likes of Korn, Linkin Park, Static-X and NIN which is evident in their music. Walking the line between modern Electronica elements and melodic nu-metal influences, Carbonstone have crafted their own, unique sound whilst staying true to their inspirations.
Corey states on their sound evolution: “Obviously if you listen to ‘What You’ve Become’ and listen to the new album ‘Dark Matter,’ it’s a huge sound change. I’ve always wanted to go down the industrial route. I’m a huge NIN fan and Stabbing Westward, I love Stabbing Westward. So I’ve always wanted to do that and I guess back 8 years ago, we didn’t have the capability to do that.”
