Back to Reviews

"Auburn stoner metal band, Stone Soul Foundation, took the stage and as far as I was concerned, this could have been the start of the touring bands. The quality of performances from this point forward made the cost of admission worth it at twice the price. This dread-lead hard rockin' gang of misfits had great vocals, guitar licks, and the drummer set an energetic pace."

Jim Gilbert, Upstate Metal.
