Garden of Stone released Idol of Flesh single, The debut EP Tides of Decay out on February! 

The Finnish melancholic metal band Garden of Stone is set to release their debut EP ‘Tides of Decay’ on February 15th 2024 via Inverse Records. The second single Idol of Flesh is released today with lyric video: 

Guitarist Ville Penkari comments:
“Idol of Flesh is the second single from Garden of Stone’s upcoming debut EP, Tides of Decay. The song showcases the band at their heaviest. Where Hymn of a Dead Man Pt.1 is slow and brooding, Idol of Flesh is fast and heavy. The song hits hard at the listener until the heavy guitars and brutal screams turn into a soft embrace of clean guitar and singing melodies. This does not go on for too long, as the song is driven home with the energy that was established at the beginning, without forgetting a breakdown that will make your neck move without your permission.The lyrics handle fear as an entity that is crowned as both the ruler of all and the highest currency.”
