Hailing from Borlänge in Sweden, Stonewall Noise Orchestra embraces the trademark sound of Scandinavia’s greats to craft their own fire-driven heavy rock. In 2005, the band releases their debut album Vol. 1 on Daredevil Records. A year later, the microphone is temporarily passed over to John Hermansen (Mother Misery, Awesome Mahine), who also joins the recordings of their second album Constants In An Ever Changing Universe, released in 2008 on The Unit Music Company. Garnering great reviews from the rock and metal sphere, S.N.O. gets featured in Classic Rock Magazine and their “New music of 2009” compilation. Never idle, their third studio album Sweet Mississippi Deal sees the light of day on Transubstans Records in 2010, followed by more touring, including support slots for Warrior Soul, Blindside, Entombed, Brant Bjork, Mustasch and many more.
Stonewall Noise Orchestra`s fourth album Salvation is released in February 2013 through Transubstans Records. The band continues to travel Europe aboard their Volvo nightliner, yet in 2015, vocalist Lars Inge decides to leave the band. Tony Josefsson jumps aboard the orchestra and the madness continues… In 2016, they a worldwide deal with SPV/Steamhammer and release their fifth full-length The Machine, The Devil & The Dope, to general acclaim.
In late 2017, the band is stricken by the cancer diagnosis of guitar player Micke Eriksson, who sadly passes away in April 2018. The loss is huge and the darkness seems bottomless. Against all odds, S.N.O. decide to complete the previously booked shows with help from Jonas Kjellgren (Raubtier, Roadhouse Diet). It’s only in 2019 that the band welcomes Mats Gesar (Thalamus, Astral Doors) on guitar to dive straight away into the studio to let the darkness and grief turn into music, leading to their 2020 full-length Deathtripper on Transubstans Records.
