Bucky Stone Axe’s throwaway tracks are better than most bands greatest hits. Stay of Education is a perfect example. The perfect combination of proto-blues and sultry grit. The vocals dominate and the rhythm and groove excel with retro finesse.

Crypt Guard Stone Axe fly the hard rock banners like non-other with dry matter-of-fact riff-work, searing guitar leads, drumming that bows to Bonzo, and soaring vocal hooks. Stay of Execution is a smorgasbord of hard rock that features an especially soulful array of bluesy tracks that go down like oil and never shy away from a flourishing chorus.

about

Port Orchard's soulful 70s rockers STONE AXE make a triumphant return with their first release in over a decade. "Stay of Execution" is a collection of unreleased tracks and hidden gems, about which Stone Axe founder and multi-instrumentalist Tony Reed says: “Stay of Execution is an album of unreleased recordings and tracks we like that were hidden in the grooves of vinyl that was released in very limited numbers with little or no promotion. All songs were recorded between 2008 and 2011 and cover a wide spectrum of styles in that seventies vein we were known for. The musical concepts of proto-metal, southern rock, psychedelic rock, and folk rock are well-explored in this collection. Seven of the eight tracks on the album feature the usual studio collaboration of Reed / Brinkerhoff, while the last song includes all four members of the live band. I feel like these tracks are as strong as anything on our other long players. It’s great to see them finally get released.”
