Israeli Symphonic Progressive Metal Group SCARDUST Unveils Music Video For Collaboration With Orphaned Land’s Kobi Farhi

Debut Full-Length ‘Sands Of Time’ Out Now

Today, the Israeli symphonic/progressive metal band celebrates the global release of their full-length debut “Sands Of Time” by unveiling a lyric video for ‘Out Of Strong Came Sweetness’, a song from the album featuring guest vocals by Orphaned Land vocalist (and fellow countryman) Kobi Farhi. The Rafael Ortega-designed clip can be seen at this location:

Says the band, ‘Out of Strong Came Sweetness’ is a key phrase in Samson and Delilah’s Biblical tale. The song is written and performed as a duet between the two main characters – Samson (Kobi Farhi) and Delilah (Noa Gruman). The first verse represents Samson’s character, the conflicts he has to deal with and his blind attraction to Delilah even though she is on the enemy’s side. In the second verse, Delilah tells how she convinced him to tell her the secret to his powers (which is the length of his hair). The chorus is a direct quote of the key phrase of the story. It’s basically a paradox, represented by metaphors, that is integrated in all different parts of the story.”

‘Sands Of Time’ was mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend, BTBAM) and features cover art by Drake Mefestta (Cradle of Filth, Michael Romeo, Devilment) – is available now on gatefold double LP, digital and compact disc. The new CD reissue features a bonus acoustic piano demo of the previously unreleased song ‘Mist’, while the limited-edition debut vinyl pressing includes 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.

The release of ‘Sands of Time’ – which also features guest vocals by Jake E (Cyhra, ex-Amaranthe) on the song ‘Blades’ – precedes two 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 Slovenia’s week-long Metaldays, which also features the likes of Dream Theater, Arch Enemy and Demons & Wizards. In addition, SCARDUST has announced a special July 21 concert in London, where the group will perform with the UK symphonic metal act Pythia. Tickets are on sale now at this location:

SCARDUST have previously played alongside the likes of Symphony X, Therion and Epica and earlier this month made their live debut in China, where the group performed at the country’s Midi Festival.
