Shadowland box to be released in early August

As previously announced, to coincidence with Shadowland’s first ever DVD “Edge of Night”, Metal Mind Productions will release “Cautionary Tales”, a box featuring the DVD as well as re-mastered re-releases of their three studio albums (unavailable for a very long time).

Shadowland is a British neo-progressive rock band formed in the 1990s, by Clive Nolan (Arena, Pendragon, Caamora) and Karl Groom (Threshold). The band’s music tends towards the ‘songy’ side of progressive rock, while retaining its melodic and emotional intensity. The band recorded three albums so far: “Ring of Roses” (1992), “Through the Looking Glass” (1994) and “Mad as a Hatter” (1996). 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 band’s performance was recorded and will be released on DVD entitled “Edge of Night” (out on 3rd August).
