From Martin Mendez, bassist of the ubiquitous OPETH comes WHITE STONES, a solo project that rapidly became much more. Named after his birthplace in Uruguay, the record represents a return to his roots, both familial and musical- exploring the forgotten paths of his ancestors via the style of music that remains his one true love- death metal.
Aware of how much OPETH polarized opinion with their departure from death metal on 2011’s Heritage, Mendez is keen to affirm that WHITE STONES not be seen as a rejection of his day job- quite the opposite.
