Release date: October 22nd, 2021.
Traditional Heavy Metal from New York City, in the vein of early Iron Maiden, Riot, Saxon, Judas Priest and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.
Forged in New York City, 2018 Anno Satanas, Shadowland journeys beyond the chaos portal, sailing through the seas of time to conjure the spirits of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal ancients. Shadowland’s debut full-length entitled “The Necromancer’s Castle”, contains eight weird and fantastical tales set to sounds of old school heavy metal thunder and cover art by Tanya Finder.
“Tanya’s vocals echo both the gothic wails of Coven or Wooden Stake and the snarl of Di’Anno-era Maiden, while the moments of chugging riffage and thundering drums show off the band’s appreciation for gritty punk and hardcore. That, coupled with Tanya’s Stygian album art, makes Shadowland more than your average vest-metal act.” – Kerrang! Magazine
Labelled by one astute chronicler as possessing the looks of Sacrilege and the sounds of Judas Priest, Shadowland are: Tanya Finder – Vox, Jeff Filmer – Guitar, Al Bulmer – Guitar, Cedric Obando – Bass, Dave Hawk – Drums.
