Originally written and recorded in mid-2011, "Flesh and Stone" was going to be featured on a split EP which, unfortunately, seems to have fallen through. It was also going to go on my next album, but after writing this song I switched directions a bit, so it no longer fits. Because of this, I've decided to release it as a single.

Main influences for "Flesh and Stone" include Summoning, Devin Townsend, Amesoeurs and Lunar Aurora.

Killing Joke's "Love Like Blood" was rearranged and recorded during the same session, so I've included it as a nice bonus!
