Scardust is a leading Progressive metal band in Israel. It consists of vocalist Noa Gruman, drummer Yoav Weinberg, guitarist Yadin Moyal, bassist Yanai Avnet, and keyboardist Itai Portugaly. Their album “Sands of Time” has been released on July 13th, 2017. The release was celebrated in an epic launch concert in Tel Aviv, with a big choir and special guests.
Late 2014, Scardust participated in the Melodic Alliance festival in Israel. In December they had their first “headline” concert in Tel Aviv, titled “The SCARDUST Epic Experience”. Full length show with a full choir on stage. It was a “sold out” event, and a big success that put Scardust on the map in the Israeli scene.
After participating a few other Israeli festivals in Haifa, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and while working on the pre-production for their new album, in June 2016 they had another big headline show, alongside the well-known Prey for Nothing. This time in a bigger venue with a bigger crowd.
In August 2016, just when Noa returned from her show at Wacken Open Air with Orphaned Land, they opened for Symphony X in Tel Aviv. In the fall of 2016 they produced their acoustic concert, and performed it twice to raise money for the upcoming album. In between those concert they entered the studio and started the final production for the album. While intensively working on the album, in April they launched their crowdfunding campaign which ended very successfully, and on June they opened for EPICA in Tel Aviv
