SANDSTONE – Epsilon Sky

SANDSTONE is one of Ireland’s most persistent and most prolific metal bands and also played as the tour backing band of ex-Judas Priest fronter Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens. They are now back with their fifth studio album “Epsilon Sky”. Darker, heavier, more sophisticated and detached from all current trends, they present an album that is completely oriented towards the preferences of the musicians involved.

The band, founded in 2003 by guitarist Stevie McLaughlin and singer Sean McBay, can look back on four weighty albums so far, with their second album “Purging The Past” from 2009 even sparking the interest of Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson and he considered this with the statement, “this is the most impressive album to come from Ireland in many years”.

The band describes “Epsilon Sky” as an album for fans of deep, thoughtful songs in a compact‚ all killers no fillers‘ package, with the supporting elements of Metal, Hard Rock, and progressive tendencies unite perfectly.

“Epsilon Sky” is a firework of strong songs that can’t really be assigned to one genre, thus appealing to different target groups.

SANDSTONE – “Cuts To You” single/video released today

We are pleased to present SANDSTONE’s second single from upcoming album “Epsilon Sky”, to be released on November 5th.

This mid-tempo rocker is called “Cuts To You” and features heartfelt and melodic vocals and lead guitar throughout.

Singer Sean describes it like this:
“Cuts To You is the story of a man walking against the tide, trying to find peace and harmony in his life, even willing to go against his own moral code to achieve it. A dilemma of the soul.”

The video was shot by the band at Killeagh Donegal, and Campsie Derry, and features Sean on vocals, Stevie on guitar and Eamonn on drums.

You will find the single on all major digital platforms.

SANDSTONE – Epsilon Sky

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.
