The emotion definitely comes through here and if you are a fan at all of this genre, you should check this out. It's a 'name your price' download at Bandcamp.

Stoic is a four piece band from Laramie, Wyoming who formed in 2014, from the looks of things.  Stoic play a dark, blackened, and metallic style of music that incorporates elements of hardcore, punk, crust, and d-beat within their sound.  Musically, Stoic can be loosely compared to bands such as Reproacher, Mercy Ties, Engineer, Achilles, and other like-minded bands.  Since forming in 2014, Stoic have released a split with Oldneck in July of 2014, a two song EP titled Haunted Lives//Deadlight December of 2014, and most recently, a split cassette with Spokane, Washington's East Sherman on November 12th, 2016.  Fall Below is the band's debut full-length LP, which was released on May 13th, 2016.  On Fall Below, Stoic offer up ten tracks of brutal as fuck sounding hardcore, punk, crust, and d-beat.  Overall, Fall Below is a killer LP and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
