Oh, man. Stone Sour are doing an EP trilogy?! This is going to be awesome! I mean, just look at their phenomenal double concept album, ‘House Of Gold & Bones’. Both parts of the records were a masterpiece and a defining moment in Stone Sour‘s career, demonstrating their formidable talent as both musicians and artists.
