12 Stones - a Review of The Phantom Tollbooth (1637 words)
12 Stones is the latest entry into the “heavy melody” category, doing their best to incorporate the sounds of Creed, Disturbed, Linkin Park, Godsmack, Rage Against the Machine, and POD into their music.
Like the Tallahassee quartet, the 12 Stones assembly is founded upon the vocalist-plus-power-trio configuration and mines many of the same spots along the alternative hard rock landscape.
12 Stones are obvious aficionados of the ubiquitous Creed, and significantly influenced by them, but a closer, longer listen will reveal an appreciably distinctive element, one that renders the band a separate entity with a mind, message and will all their own.
12 Stones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (359 words)
12 Stones is a four-piece rock/Post-Grunge band that, as of May 2006, has released two albums.
As stated on their official website, "12 Stones" is taken metaphorically from the twelve stones in the Hoshen, a breastplate worn by the high priest of Levitical order in the Old Testament.
12 Stones are working now on their third album.
