The Album By STONE TICKET
CD REVIEW By Adriana Rubio
Swedish Rock Band Stone Ticket formed by Vince Quinn on lead guitar & vocals, Henrik Widing on guitar, Jarmo Vehmanen on bass guitar and drummer John Lilliestrand in late 2007. In 2010 they released the band’s first full length CD “Punk’s Dead” consisting of 9 tracks.
These four rockers co-wrote all the songs and, according to the band’s leader Vince Quinn, everyone in the band is important and no one sticks out. Stone Ticket went into a small studio in MalmÃ¶ first to record five tracks: “I Can't Find My Way”, “The Queen of Rock & Roll”, “Wildcat”, “Don't Try To Find Me” and “Lights R Low”. Four more tracks were then added to complete the album.
Due to financial reasons "Punk's Dead" was recorded in two days in a small studio. All the songs were recorded in one or two takes. But despite the monetary issues and recording inconveniences, "Punk's Dead" is a true demonstration of four rockers sharing their passion and love for music as well as their honest thoughts on whatever's going on around the crazy world we all live in.
Stone Ticket's music is like a locomotive of pure energy and although it has many of the ingredients we've listened years ago from the old school of rock, the speed-powerful riffs and remarkable rhythm beats make them enchanting. On the other hand the lyrics offer material for discussion and deep thinking. These guys are like in a mission with some kind of remedy-message for the everyday living: ROCK!

Wow. Stone Ticket is magnificent. A hybrid of rock, metal and alternative. Spectacular production, vocals and instrumentation. Lyrical content is brilliant. Guitar riffs and drumming is another key ingredient for this ensemble. The Swedish band's current album is entitled, "Punk's Dead." There are nine tracks in total; and all were collectively written by the four members. Due to financial circumstances, the band had to record the entire record in just two days. Don't fret. No track goes unnoticed. Each and every song has been carefully built from the ground up. This group effortlessly manages to pull off a beautiful piece of work. Kudos.
