View the original interview here… RYL: Your new album “Give In To Temptation” will be released in just few weeks, which is the main challenge that you encountered while recording it? What does it mean for you, lyrically speaking? Stone Angels: The biggest hurdle when it came to making the record, was finding time to get into the studio. This is due to the fact that we are very poor and work full time jobs, so we would mainly go in on weekends or evenings after work. On one of the final days of recording, just before the tracks were going to be sent off to be mastered, we got a frantic call from our studio engineer; he had lost the recording for James’ solo on “Thousand Years”, so James had to race down after work from Worthing all the way to Newhaven during rush hour to get it done in time. Other then that, the whole process was relatively stress free.

Stone Angels: Well the songwriting for that track started off with the main riff in the intro, and as we played around with it more and begun working out its heavy groove, the lyrics started to come to us. It’s very much a song about being down on your luck at your lowest point and feeling alone and abandoned, it’s something that anyone can relate to. We feel that’s probably one of the reasons that it has been so well received when we play it at our shows. VENTS: How was the film experience? Stone Angels: Ha, well that was a very interesting but fun experience on a cold Saturday in February. It’s definitely shows what you can achieve on a shoe string budget as it only ended up costing us a couple of band t-shirts and a Chinese takeaway! The reason we got it done so cheaply is that two friends of the band (they happen to be brothers called Chris & Steve) run their own film production company and as soon as they heard we were making the album, they offered to do it for free as they wanted to help us out, so we thought that the least we could do was to feed and clothe them. Luckily the location was also free as James’ parents live in the middle of a forest...
