SHADOWLAND – a British neo-progressive rock band originally formed in the 1990s, by Clive Nolan (Arena, Pendragon, Caamora) and Karl Groom (Threshold). The band’s music tends towards the â€˜songyâ€™ side of progressive rock, while retaining its melodic and emotional intensity. They have developed a style that is both complex and easy listening. The band recorded three albums so far: “Ring of Roses” (1992), “Through the Looking Glass” (1994) and “Mad as a Hatter” (1996), their third studio album. Sadly, due to the onset of other commitments, Shadowland took a lengthy break from recording and performing between 1996 and 2008. Late in 2008 Nolan announced that Shadowland would be reforming for a tour in early 2009. Mark Westwood (Caamora, Neo) replaced Ian Salmon on the bass in this 2009 incarnation, but the rest of the original line-up from the 90’s remained unchanged. The tour promoted a “best of” album entitled “A Matter of Perspective”, featuring the band’s favorite tracks from their three previous albums as well as some new material. During the tour, Shadowland also visited Poland. They played at the famous WyspiaÅ„ski Theatre during the first edition of the progressive rock festival ProgRock 2009. The bandâ€™s performance was recorded and will be released on their forthcoming DVD entitled “Edge of Night” (due in July).
Metal Mind Productions plans to release “Cautionary Tales” on 6th July in Europe and 11th August in USA (via MVD). Limited to numbered 1000 copies! Full details to be revealed soon!
