SANDSTONE – new album on the way
New SANDSTONE album entitled „Epsilon Sky“ out on November 5th, 2021!
You can’t keep a good thing down! After the release of their seminal 4th album „Delta Viridian“ in 2013, and extensive touring, SANDSTONE took a break to get back to basics and re-imagine the band going forward. Presented here is a collection of dark brooding songs that represent a heavier, more sonically coherent, and more confident band.
Sit back and take a listen to the song writing intensity and maturity of a band that aren’t afraid to ignore the current trends in the music industry and go wherever their artistic vision takes them.
The result: an album for fans of deep thoughtful songs with tasteful and aggressive performances. All packaged up in a tight, all killer – no filler compact gut punch of an album that harks back to the melodic storytelling traditions of their Celtic homeland, forged in an alloy of metal, hard rock and progressive tendencies.

SANDSTONE – Purging The Past
With a mixture of Power, Progressive and Melodic Metal as well as various NWOBHM influences, the 12 songs on the album are catchy and impress you with classy songwriting and remind you a bit of Fates Warning, Iron Maiden and Queensryche. But SANDSTONE manages the almost impossible, creating a versatile, exciting and unique style.
