SANDSTONE – Delta Viridian

With this, their fourth album, SANDSTONE give the fans a perfectly prepared album which will make not only fans of progged metal structures happy, but also those who prefer fisty, hard compositions. The cleverly designed mixture of Power and Progressive elements with a large dose of melody attract comparison with the greats of the scene, such as Fates Warning, Queensryche, Pagan’s Mind, Symphony X or Vanden Plas and also convinced Tim “Ripper” Owens to add some guestvocals!

SANDSTONE – Cultural Dissonance

Bruce Dickinson called the predecessor: “The most impressive album to come out of Ireland for years”. Sandstone continue to display the clever mixture of power and progressive elements with a high standard of melodies (think Fates Warning, Queensryche and even Iron Maiden), yet the new material comes across much straighter, heavier and more in the direction of Pagan’s Mind, Symphony X and Vanden Plas.

 

Tracklisting:
  •  01. Reckless Thought / 5:01
  •  02. Little Forgeries / 5:17
  •  03. Fading / 4:17
  •  04. Leaning On An Arrow / 4:34
  •  05. Carefree Moment / 4:11
  •  06. Silent Suicide / 4:10
  •  07. Black Skies / 4:26
  •  08. No More / 3:43
  •  09. Sleep / 5:10
  •  10. Trick Of Mind / 5:59

Total playing time 47:10

 

  • Young Irish band which gained an excellent name and reputation on the underground scene.
  • Varied mix of power metal, progressive rock and melodic metal. Characterized by superb melodies and powerful guitars.
  • Excellent reviews for their previous releases.
  • For fans of Pagan’s Mind, Symphony X, Queensryche, old style Fates Warning.
