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.
