Blazon Stone - Band On Hold

Swedish multi-instrumentalist Ced, real name Cederick Forsberg, who is the main man behind Rocka Rollas and Blazon Stone has announced that the band is on hold as he cannot find any available musicians to complete the line-up. They are looking for a vocalist, a drummer and a bassist.

He explained: "I have done my best, but I cannot find any available musicians to complete the line-up. I cannot describe how frustrating this is. I cannot magically summon musicians out of nowhere, and most of the good drummers/vocalists are already busy in already active and touring bands, and I have gotten tired of trying to keep up... So yeah, Blazon Stone is put on hold. That means, unlike Rocka Rollas, it's not put into a grave for all eternity. Blazon Stone still breathes, but it's lacking the necessary parts to actually function.

"So first off, 'all' gigs are cancelled. Skull Crush Fest IV in France has already announced the cancellation. Big sorry to everybody who wanted to see us in Colmar. I cannot book us to Germany (we was asked to play another festival 2019) and Greece (we was asked to be re-booked!) and also a couple of Swedish festivals was interested in booking Blazon Stone. This cannot happen as it is right now.

"Second off: whatever goes on behind the scenes is 100% confidential from now on. I need to find a properly working, dedicated, talented, and enthusiastic line-up. This will take time. A lot of time, energy and probably money. But I hope that some day I can get Blazon Stone back on track with a bang. But I cannot possibly ever do that in this current situation I am in. It's not possible!

"The only way out would be hiring professional live session musicians, but I cannot afford that! And I don't have a big enough follower base to rely on crowdfunding. I have asked before and the interest was too low and I decided that way is not the way to go. I don't have personal economy enough to actually afford professional live musicians, and even if I did, it would only be a short time solution.

"A big and loving thanks all who has been involved so far, in one way or another:
Erik Nordkvist for setting this sailing journey off 5 years ago!
Georgy Peichev (sorry couldn't tag name?) for thunderous voice on NSOG!
Jimmy Mattsson for bass duties during last summer and nice blackbeard
Kevin Crona for joining in on bass the first gig!
Karl Löfgren joining in on hard hitting drums at that same gig!
Daniel Sjögren for this summers few gigs, good job!
Philip Forsell for the same shows, you did wonders!
Jan Pawel for keyboard layers and some extra song writing on NSOG, WOTR and DITD!

"And of course: all the great fans! Too many to be mentioned individually! As I tried to make clear, it's NOT the complete end, I just need a moment to fix this shit up. Whenever Blazon Stone returns, it's gonna be fucking lethal!"

Later, he posted: "Vocalist wanted: You must be willing to travel to Sweden (we cover the costs!) every once in a while for occasional full-weekend rehearsals. You should have your own recording equipment for recording demo vocals, but for final album production we might probably do it at my place for deeply detailed recordings. I can go into more details in private.

(Yeah I'm of course looking for a drummer too but vocalist is the hardest part so let's at least start somewhere... The core of he band must be located in Sweden, I will not look for drummer abroad)."

It sounds weird, metal community is wide, today everybody can play metal and at home listen pop or what so ever, in Swedish Lapland you can put band and play some metal, maybe guy has some isues? Sounds weird to me.
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

This is such a shame, especially for a man clearly so passionate about his music. I'd be on the first flight to Sweden if I could sing, or even play drums.

Change name to Port Royal, Death Or Glory or Black Hand Inn (due to being superior albums) and people will come

Blazon Stone is far superior to Black Hand Inn.
