Set in Stone was formed in 2008 in St. Helens, Oregon and consists of five band members that have all resided in Columbia County for most of their lives. Their unique heavy-rock sound has been referred to the likes of Seether, Breaking Benjamin and Alter Bridge. Set in Stone offers a wide-range of styles and music diversity, which is the foundation of their unmistakably unique and all-original sound. Their deep guitar crunches, solid riffs, ground pounding bass, heavy-handed rhythmic drums and mesmerizing vocals are all reasons Set in Stone has quickly attracted the attention from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Set in Stone released their first self-titled album in April 2009. Their first professional album ‘Open Doors’ debuted in May 2011. The album consists of 11 professionally recorded, mixed and mastered tracks recorded by Black Diamond Studios in Portland. This album can be streamed or downloaded for free on our Reverbnation website. (www.reverbnation.com/setinstonerocks). It can also be found on CD Baby, Amazon, Ebay, Napster, Big Cartel, iTunes and more!
