The Atlas Stone: Through the Eyes of Leo
Ok, it's like this: I've worked my way from the ground up, playing drums in many different bands in my own and neighboring towns since I was 13. Then while working at a Sal's Pizza Co I met Steve and rejoined force with J(ayndro), whom I had met a few years earlier. After forming a band which went under the monikers Heroic Dose and An Example Of, I was researching the Icelandic strongman (and a personal hero for me) Jon Pall Sigmarsson and saw the words "...the atlas Stone" and instantly talked to the guys about it. It was agreed, we were going to become.....The Atlas Stone. What was forged in the winter of 2009 was the "Psychonautical Mile" record. I feel that the record is this band at its purest, but not necessarily at our best. Our forthcoming Full Length album " Seasons To Reap Salvation" is an obvious progression from PM. I am even witnessing now new ideas being created by J for our next unwritten record as we speak. Well Peaces for now, I gotta go smoke a cig.
