Debut full-length ‘Sands Of Time‘ featuring guest performances by members of Cyhra (ex-Amaranthe) and Orphaned Land to be released on May 24; group to perform at major European festivals this summer M-Theory Audio is proud to announce the signing of Israel’s leading progressive metal band, SCARDUST. The label will reissue the group’s acclaimed full-length debut, “Sands of Time,” on May 24 on limited-edition double vinyl (the album’s first-ever LP release), digital and compact disc.
The ‘Sands of Time’ reissue precedes major summer festival performances by the band – the UK’s Ramblin’ Man Fair, where they will perform on the Prog In The Park stage alongside Riverside, Pain of Salvation and Anathema, and at Slovenia’s week-long Metaldays which also features the likes of Dream Theater, Arch Enemy and Demons & Wizards, as well as Taihu Midi Festival in Suzhou near Shanghai, China May 4th.
Mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend, BTBAM), featuring cover art by Drake Mefestta (Cradle of Filth, Michael Romeo, Devilment) and guest vocals from Kobi Farhi (Orphaned Land) and Jake E (Cyhra/ex-Amaranthe), “Sands of Time” was originally self-released.
Check out the band’s lyric video for the title track to get an idea of the grandeur, melody and power below:
The new CD reissue will include a bonus acoustic piano demo of the brand-new song “Mist,” while the new gatefold double-LP edition will include the group’s 2015 debut EP “Shadow” in its entirety on Side D – the first time that release has been offered on vinyl as well. Both physical formats can be pre-ordered at this location (www.m-theoryaudio.com/store).
“We are very excited to be working with M-Theory Audio, whose philosophy of co-operation between artists mirrors our own,” says SCARDUST vocalist Noa Gruman. “It’s great to have the ‘Sands of Time’ CD released globally, and the pressing of a double vinyl LP which will include our EP ‘Shadow’ is something that would have been impossible for us to do as an independent band. Signing with M-Theory, as well as working on new material and preparing for summer festivals, makes us feel that the future looks very bright for us, and we can’t wait to bring our epic experience to new crowds and new heights.”
SCARDUST – who have previously performed alongside the likes of Symphony X, Therion and Epica – will next perform live in Tel Aviv, Israel on April 11.
Noa Gruman – vocals, Yadin Moyal – guitar, Yanai Avnet – bass guitar, Yoav Steel Weinberg – drums, Itai Portugaly – keyboards, Orr Didi – ghost member, writer & composer
