Shadows Fall Begin Recording New Album

Atlantic recording group SHADOWS FALL is currently in the studio recording their highly anticipated major label debut with producer Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, STONE SOUR, RUSH). The still untitled project is the Grammy-nominated band's follow-up to 2004's critically acclaimed "The War Within", and its companion release, 2006's "Fallout From The War", both released on Century Media Records.

After headlining this summer's Sthress Tour with such supporting acts as SUFFOCATION and POISON THE WELL, SHADOWS FALL headed straight back to their rehearsal space to begin pre-production. Today, September 18, the band enters Studio 606 in Northridge, CA to begin recording. Says singer Brian Fair, "I cannot wait to finally get this started! We have been working on these songs for the past few months in the practice space and are ready to lay them down in the studio. Pre-production with Nick has been amazing. He is definitely on the same page as us, musically and personally. He is a lifelong fan of metal but also has a great understanding of rock and roll, which complements our style and sound perfectly." Raskulinecz adds, "I've wanted to work with this band for years and had to bug the hell out of them until they said yes. We're going to tighten the songs so that every riff, every lyric, every drum hit counts on this record, and really focus on the songwriting to make it a force to be dealt with."

We'll see.

Lamb of God stuck to the moral highroad on the last two albums on a major label, question being is whether the inherently more melodic, thrash leaning (and powermetal worshipping) Shadows Fall stick to their guns....The band would be hard pressed to top Art of Balance or War Within but I think it can be done...

War Within is a great album, but not a memorable one, i could listen to it non stop, and the next day i would have a different band in my head, instead of them, i just don't want them becoming cliche, Lamb of god and Chimaira have stayed true, now it's up to Killswitch and Shadows to do the same, and show metal has a big future, and real metal can be profitable

War Within had a couple of songs that i couldnt get outta my head (The Light That Blinds in particular) but Art of Balance was the album that i had stuck in my head for for weeks afterwards

I'd be happy with diverse offering. If the band want to tread into melodic territory thats fine by me as long as I don't end up purchasing a Lost Prophets cd with Shad's name on it.

I was happy with most of the "War Within" and "Fallout" but "Art of Balance" is the bands flagship record IMHO. If they can bring that kind of intensity on 3 or 4 songs bring the "War Within" sound on 2 or 3 and then spend the rest trying to carve out a "hard rock" sound for themselves I should remain content.
