stOrk biography
STORK is the brainchild of guitarist Shane GIBSON, otherwise known as Mr.stOrk, and drummer Thomas LANG. The two musicians have pretty impressive carees behind them. GIBSON was once a guitarist for KORN and Jonathan Davis' solo project JONATHAN DAVIS AND THE SFA. LANG, on the other hand, has had a prolific session drummer history playing with everyone from John WETTON, Robert FRIPP, Glenn HUGHES and Steve HACKETT to Robbie WILLIAMS and Bonnie TYLER!

Shane GIBSON is well known for his frequent soloing guitar arrangements, use of odd time signatures and poly-rhythms, which provides the technical base for STORK, while LANG adds his well established professionalism behind the drums mixed with a powerful dosage of double bass drumming. The lineup is rounded up by Eloy PALACIOS on bass.

STORK released their band-titled debut album on January 11, 2011 featuring an intense, dark and aggressive sound that should not be missed by anyone who enjoys Extreme Tech Metal with a heavy dose of Progressive, bordering on Avant-garde, Metal arrangements.

Review by Failcore

4 stars This album was like a yo-yo for me. First I loved it, then I hated it, now I like it. What first attracted me was the bizarre Avant-Garde nature of many of the songs, as well as the almost Zappa-esque sense of humor. But after repeated listens (especially back to back), it can seem kinda cold and too hyper-technical, based on showiness rather than substance. So, yes, to my chagrin I must admit sometimes originality, itself, is not enough to make a masterpiece. If I'd reviewed this the week I got it I would have given it 5 stars. If I'd reviewed it a month after that, I would have given it 2.5. I'm thinking today, it's 3.5 rounded to 4.
