Combining thrash metal with progressive rock -- stOrk, is the brainchild of guitar ogre Shane Gibson (KoRn) and uber-drummer Thomas Lang.
Best known for his soloing, Shane Gibson's frequent use of odd time signatures, heavy riffing, poly-rhythms, innovative tapping sequences and his impressive sweep picking technique provides the sonic spine of stOrk's masterful, musical progeny. Songs like, "Changing Lanes" and "Alien" on stOrk's debut album perfectly showcase Gibson's considerable shredding skills.
World-renowned drummer Thomas Lang (Rhythm magazine's "Best Drummer in the World") provides the percussive punch to stOrk's sonic uppercut. With Lang's incredible interdependence, powerful double bass drumming combined with an innate musicality, his drumming on stOrk is both insanely heavy and musical at the same time. Featured on "Metal Fatigue" and "Nautilus," Lang's drumming is legendary.
Rounding out this ultra power trio is Eloy Palacios (Vension) on bass. Palacious is the sonic superglue that binds Gibson's guitar and Lang's drums together. On stOrk's debut album, Palacious' virtuoso playing and bottomless bass pocket are not to be missed.
Intense, dark, aggressive, futuristic and somehow familiar, stOrk sounds like nothing you've ever heard -- but always hoped you would. To sample tracks: www.myspace.com/officialstOrk
