Shadow Gallery Posts New Song, "Gold Dust," Online

Pennsylvania progressive metallers SHADOW GALLERY have launched a new promo song off their 6th studio effort "Digital Ghosts," which will be released on November 3rd, 2009 in North America via InsideOutMusic. The song, "Gold Dust," can be heard on their MySpace page.

SHADOW GALLERY’s Brendt Allman comments on the song: "'Gold Dust' is one of the 1st songs that I started writing for this new record. I just loved the D/ B flat/ E progression used in the chorus, then I just built the other parts around that. I knew that it could be a strong chorus and it turned out to be one of the best on the record. I particularly love the simplicity of the chord changes in the second half of the song, riding one note on the guitar in machine gun fashion while having pretty chord changes over the top of it. I love the fact that there are 4 lead vocalists on that section as well."

The tracklisting for "Digital Ghosts" is as follows:

1. With Honor
2. Venom
3. Pain
4. Gold Dust
5. Strong
6. Digital Ghost
7. Haunted
8. Two Shadows (European digipack bonus track)
9. Gold Dust (Demo) (European digipack bonus track)
10. In Your Window (European digipack bonus track)
11. World Of Fantasy (Demo) (European digipack bonus track)

‘Two Shadows’ is a partly upgraded version of the Japan bonus track from the previous album “Room V”, featuring vocals by former vocalist Mike Baker, who tragically passed away in October 2008. ‘Gold Dust (Demo)’ features vocals by Carl-Cadden James, ‘In Your Window’ is an A capella version of vocal harmonies of the album song ‘Digital Ghost’ and ‘World Of Fantasy (Demo)’ is a non-album song, also featuring vocals by Mike Baker.
