After failing to take over the world with their rather unconvincing brand of metallic hardcore when they were called Fight Paris, Atlanta, GA, residents Matt Tanner (vocals/guitar), Neil Warren (guitar), Champ Champagne (bass), and Jason Krutzky (drums) became born-again Southern hard rockers under the more appropriate billing of Stone Rider. The quartet did hang onto their recording contract, however, which explains the release of their 2008 debut, Three Legs of Trouble, through hardcore haven Trustkill Records -- despite its evident and unashamed stylistic debt to classic hard rock staples such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Blackfoot, and a pinch of influences from further afield like AC/DC, Nazareth, and Free. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi
