Who still is interested in a furious mixture of (old) DARK TRANQUILLITY, ARCH ENEMY and CHILDREN OF BODOM, should take down the name of SHADOW.

The band hails from Japanese Osaka and delivers their music with a dedication that you cannot keep your head from moving. Especially guitar-wise the band is beyond any doubting. The best thing is that the vocals are performed by a lady, who is shouting and shrieking so harshly that I was reminded of HOLY MOSES' Sabina Classen more than once!

The band doesn't deliver anything that we haven't heard from other Sweden-Death-bands before, but still they have class and power! The album has been recorded in Japan, but then mixed by production-wizard Mikko Karmila (NIGHTWISH, CHILDREN OF BODOM or SONATA ARCTICA) in Finland, so there cannot be any criticism here either!
