SANDALINAS the Spanish/Swedish band featuring Mats Rendlert (bass; DREAMLAND), Alvaro Svaner (drums; LOCH VOSTOK), Jordi Sandalinas (guitar) and Rick Altzi (vocals; AT VANCE) will enter Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden in August with producer Andy LaRocque (KING DIAMOND) to begin recording its third album. More information will be made available soon.
SANDALINAS recently cancelled its support slot for TESTAMENT for two shows in Spain. The group's participation in the concerts was called off "due to circumstances beyond our control," according to a statement from SANDALINAS.
The affected dates which will still go ahead with TESTAMENT headlining are as follows:
Jun. 24 - Heineken, Madrid, SPA
Jun. 25 - Apolo, Barcelona, SPA
"Never Seen Before", the new video from SANDALINAS can be viewed below. The clip was shot at the Fortress of Varberg in Varberg, Sweden and features both indoor and outdoor footage.
According to Wikipedia, the Fortress of Varberg was built during 1287-1300 by count Jacob Nielsen as protection against his Danish King, who had declared him an outlaw after the murder of King Eric V of Denmark.
"Never Seen Before" comes off SANDALINAS' latest album, "Fly to the Sun", which was released in January via Metal Heaven. The CD features guest appearances by Derek Sherinian (DREAM THEATER) on keyboards, Chris Caffery on guitar and Andy La Rocque (KING DIAMOND) on guitar.
"Fly to the Sun" was recorded and produced by Andy La Rocque at his Los Angered Recording (now Sonic Train) in Sweden.
