From the first note it is obvious that Stone 588 is just your run of the mill goth band with a female vocalist. The orchestration of most of the material is bland, uninspired, and choked with cliches. The lyrics are so morbidly silly that it makes you wonder if there is actually a manual lying around for writing gothic poetry. In fact, if I didn't know better, I'd think I was reading from a doom metal band's lyric sheet. In any event, the only saving grace of the band is it's vocalist. Her depth and range keeps the album from boring it's audience to tears, even if you have to ignore the music. Hopefully Stone 588's only purpose is to have some fun and mildly entertain rather than trying to be a serious band, because they certainly would fail in that arena.

Stone 588 is:
Terri Kennedy - vocals
Dave Rhine - guitars
Paul Rocha - drums
Jon McFerson - bass guitar
