Blackstone is a Filipino rock band formed in late 2009. The band started by playing cover songs from artists like Free, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, Audioslave, & Alice in Chains (among many others) in a few gigs in different bars and venues. A year and a few member changes after, the band now composed of Benj Garcia on vocals, Raf Manalo on guitars, Jonathan Melo on bass, and Pat Abrio on drums, decided that they are not mere cover musicians and have more to offer in terms of creative and artistic output. The band started creating and writing their own original songs. Since then, the band has been taking and playing their music on the road, all across Metro Manila and wherever the opportunity takes them. Blackstone promises to deliver intense, passionate, hard-hitting and non-compromising, hard rock music.
