Thomas Lang,Shane Gibson: Broken pieces - VK Lynne icing on the cake!


(3/30/2013 – Los Angeles, CA) Los Angeles-based heavy metal instrumental trio stOrk is instrumental no more! Founding stOrk members, super drummer Thomas Lang (Paul Gilbert) and guitarist Shane Gibson (Korn) have announced their new album; “Broken Pieces” (Muso Entertainment) will feature lead singer, VK Lynne (Vita Nova/Eve’s Apple) and bassist Kelly LeMieux (Buckcherry/Goldfinger) and will be released on Muso Entertainment Records on April 29th.

Broken Pieces pairs Lynne’s soulful vocals and intense lyrics with ultra-heavy guitar riffs, virtuoso drumming and rock solid bass on tracks like “Paper Angles,” “Overflow” and “Chainsaw Serenade” evoking a sound that can be best described as “Dream Theater-meets-Evanescence.”

IN Praise OF stork
This is easily some of the best metal I’ve heard all year….”- Vince Neilstein, Metal Sucks
“With his new band stOrk, super-human Austrian drummer Thomas Lang has more going on than polyrhythmic trickery and ridiculous speed — but there’s still plenty of that too.” – Dave Constantine, Drum! Magazine

“If you're down with progressive, mind-blowing shred-rock, then the stOrk just delivered you a beautiful, bouncing baby that boasts some razor-sharp rock chops that could chew off Steve Vai's leg and devour Buckethead's KFC headgear in one satisfied gulp.” – The Word

"... Gibson’s ability to emphasize different pulses in each measure has evolved into a monstrous skill for creating compelling riffs. Combined with his penchant for heavy distortion and his love of 7-string guitars, these phrases often retain a pummel-you-in-the- chest feel while having a refreshing “odd meter” sound.” – Jude Gold, Guitar Player
