For all inquires related to the music (AKA you run a radio station and want free copies, want a review copy, etc etc) :

"...'Kevlar, Kryptonite, Gloria' is a diverse and delightful album full to brimming over with solid musicianship and strong vocal performances and is packed to the rafters with songs that, thanks to strong songwriting skills and clever arrangements, are not reliant on just riffs to pull them through." - Desert Psychlist

"Throughout this album when I listen to this it really teleports me to the winter for some reason, it really has a cool grunge sound but also incorporating fuzz and stoner elements. It’s really fantastic!" - Mammoth Tongue Reviews

"...Intelligent songwriting, superb instrumental work, varied use of different genres and fantastic production... The Stone Eye have created a solid and superbly entertaining album that will no doubt see the band’s reputation grow steadily within the Stoner Rock/Metal scene." - Outlaws of the Sun

"They're fucking fantastic. Their sound is deep, delectable, dark, and rich. Frankly, no one should be surprised if they’re selling out stadiums someday. Each and every song within their existing discography is skillful and masterful. Had they been around a few decades earlier, Alice In Chains wouldn’t have stood a damn chance." - Amplify

"...The Stone Eye draws heavily from both the '90s grunge scene and the doom-stoner scene we all know and love. Taking notes from bands like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath, Ghost, Sleep, and a slew of similar bands, The Stone Eye have crafted a fine album that doesn’t merely sound like their favorite bands, but succeeds in creating a distinct sound all their own." - Doomed & Stoned

"I was in Seattle in the early 90s at the Offramp and the other grunge bars so believe me when I say The Stone Eye delivers the real deal." - Fuzzy Cracklins Presents

"Yankees." - Stoner & Co.

The Stone Eye Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Philadelphia's finest fuzz-fueled rock. Sometimes dark, occasionally heavy, always catchy. I'll drink a Budweiser Discovery Reserve to that.

Track Name: Hand of Silk
Gathered in the mine and shackled by the bone
Pieces of the mind and desires of the fool
Poisoned to the tone of what I see in you
Feeding on my dead friends and taking what I choose

Stolen from the crowd and thrown into a cell
Latched onto the bars and summoned to the floor
Talking bout my dead friends and If i'd bleed for them
What's it mean to me and what's in it for you

What's it mean to you for me
Held up by the role of man
Wrapped inside a hand of silk
Carved into a mask of blood

For you
For me
For you
Track Name: Cut Him Loose
A crystal palace on an unknown plain
The holy mace of disarray
A shallow hole to wash it out
A cleaner way to say farewell

sinking feet and a soulless dance
What's to say when you're insane
beating drums and the heavy sun
Roll away from this unknown grave

Fill his lungs
Cut him loose
Strung up by design
Tasteless boy
Broken toys
You and I
Strung up by design

Fill him up
Track Name: Eyes of Eden
V1 :
Gather around now, it's your beast and burden
His every thoughts lie, to your creator
He's the master, and you're the key
Clawing sideways in the creation

V2 :
Burst of lightning, your eyes of eden
Take my hand child, and part the water
Plague of darkness, a simple reason
Count me out now, I'll leave a pardon

Seeking out what isn't mine
Falling in and letting go
Piece by piece it goes to show
What's it mean to be alone
Track Name: Tin Man
Hey soldier, marching down the road
Poor soldier, little would we know
Dead soldier, where would you of gone
Little soldier, why'd you have to go

Hey soldier, this is where we'll meet
Hey soldier, this is where we'll greet
Poor soldier, tore apart his chest
Dead soldier, heaven is his friend

Hey soldier, where are you now
A soldier, marching in the clouds
A soldier, doing what he's told
Dead soldier, doesn't have a soul

Packed into a stairway which leads nowhere
Fall into the void and scream but no ones there
Choose your battles wisely as you are simply a tin man in hell

You seem so out of sorts
Didn't you get the memo
We all are bound to fry
Track Name: Gone Girl
Lie awake in the fields of another gone girl of mine
oh but I know where this will go and I sway to my knees and I kiss the ground beneath my feet
Cause I know oh I know just let it go

And I pass the statues of a man covered in glass
who sides with the one I knew in the fields of gloom when the stakes were you
cause I know oh I know, just let it go

Sweet Love of Mine
Sink into me

Don't let go you've got a heart to let it show
Don't blow fire you've got a know to let it go
Don't reside in the echoes of the mind
Hearts of gold mended in a vile
Track Name: Black Cat
Towards the black cat of the night a hint of the fight distorts what we see and what we know
Crash into the canvas of a plain a taste of your grace ignites a flame

Brush off all the dust the pixies and the lust a coroner to bust a simple plan
With my hatchet and my cross I will not confront I'll become of one Inside you

Take you away from the mounds of pain
Stand to the beat of the marching feet

It's just a funny tune
Just crash and burn
A stack of two
So bleak but true
A kiss of death
A table without any legs
Track Name: Chariots
A Sweetness fills my lungs
A tongue that's like a gun
The softest words that Ive heard
Convinced me of your concern

This voice that's inside my head
Tells me to pick "up the dead"
Dissecting all that I've known
A slave to this terrible show

And now I roam through the court
Sick and broken to the core
But that's okay because I
Have nobody by my side

Golden chariots in silk run free
Wrapped in a blanket of it all, what more
Discretion reeks of hope

Shoot it up and take your time
A ticking clock writes tomorrows lie
And that's okay because I am fine
Leave me be and don't say goodbye
Track Name: Cellar Dogs
Green wide eyes in a haze rattling
Cut and burn loosen up in a night
Parasite in my head in my bones

Straddling on the floor with a knife
You and I we burn alive take it all
What's there to a secret for you

Oh god damn, this ride
Cellar dogs, unite
Plastic hands, cold eyes
If we meet, I do
Track Name: A Palace for an Unborn King
What you know and what you see
A god to us is a god for me

See you run and cross my feet
Let them in and let them be
A moment of led you to be
A busted image on a burnt-out screen

You don't know what you don't see
A mighty palace for an unborn king
Chew your meat and spit your greens
A quiet hammock on a crowded tree

Come along and join the fun
A healthy taste of your afterthoughts
Track Name: See the Sun
Descending to us
A cloud in the sun
Don't fear the one
Just listen to the voice
A booming reminder
Of what was once one
Apart of you
Apart of me recedes

Close all your eyes
Feed off the light
The seven seas
Are glistening at once
A break in the wind
A soft tasteless sin
Divinity, deity
What more?

Let's see the sun
Let's have our fun
Let's be of one for now
Track Name: Kevlar, Kryptonite, Gloria
A cancer to the soul
A hammer to the dome
Brother please come home
Drifting in the wind
A reason for the bends
An epiphany for it all

Cryptic to the touch
Desires feed the lust
A phoney intuition
Eyes that burn to touch
A hand that turns to dust
Chewing out your guts

Gone with the wind you sail

Run away
