Exclusive Song Premiere From MASHEENA For Their New Song UNDER THE SAME SUN From Upcoming New Album

Masheena’s second single from their upcoming debut album WEST COAST HARD ROCK! The album will be released digitally on all platforms, as well as vinyl through Majestic Mountain Records, and on the CD and cassette mediums through Electric Talon Records US.

After the party vibe of the first single “1979”, “Under The Same Sun” presents a darker and heavier sound. Unashamedly grunge influenced, it sounds like a collaboration that Soundgarden and Metallica would have done in the early 90s, yet with modern hard rock production. A high-flying chorus shines rays of sunlight down on the brooding verses, balancing the darkness and light presented in the song’s mood.

The track was recorded at Solslottet Studios in Bergen, Norway by Enslaved-drummer and renowned producer Iver Sandøy, co-produced by the band, and mixed to perfection by the legend Machine at The Machine Shop in Austin, Texas, USA.

We’re excited to announce that the cover illustration for WEST COAST HARD ROCK was created by tattoo artist and illustrator Chon Hernandez (Blast Tyrant)! The single cover for Under The Same Sun is a detail from the full album cover.

Masheena was started up by a group of longtime friends in 2021. Combined, they have over 100 years of service in hard-rocking bands like Immortal, Abbath, I, Royal Rooster, Lost at Last, Ilti Milta, and St Satan.


Thanks to Majestic Mountain Records for all of the details.
