Scardust to release "Strangers" on October 30th!

Israeli progressive wizards SCARDUST follow up their critically acclaimed debut masterpiece “Sands of Time” with “Strangers”, an intriguing concept album recorded against all odds in the first half of 2020. Mixed by Yonatan Kossov (Orphaned LandAmorphis) and mastered by Jens Bogren (OpethDevin TownsendArch Enemy), the album – which is now available for pre-order on CD and limited-edition gray smoke vinyl here – will be released October 30th, 2020 via M-Theory Audio.

Vocalist Noa Gruman explains, “Strangers deals with the concept of being estranged. Written from multiple perspectives, it explores the ways in which people can be estranged from one another, from themselves, from society, from their loved ones and even from their own subconscious. After the overture, which introduces musical themes, the album separates into two parts. Every song from the second part is a mirror image of a parallel song in the first. Each pair of songs tells the story of a pair of strangers. They can be played together as a standalone piece, as individual songs or as part of the album, whatever the listener’s heart desires.

Track List:

01. Overture for the Estranged 02. Break The Ice 03. Tantibus II 04. Stranger 05. Concrete Cages (feat. Patty Gurdy) 06. Over 07. Under 08. Huts 09. Gone 10. Addicted 11. Mist
