Shadows Fall

Of One Blood (Century Media)
Enslain Magazine Issue #7
Order Issue #7!  This review included.
It was a little less than surprising to hear of Shadows Fall's signing to Century Media. How long has it been since you've heard such galloping riffs? Such versatile vocal delivery, being contributed by three of the musicians? Such an innovative blend of melodic guitars, hardcore fury, and progressed technique? Too long, if ever! Even from song to sound, and minute to minute, they jump from one style to another, keeping the same time structure, but adding frantic diversions, making it more interesting and involving. If you're impressed by the CD, their live show is even more impressive. Shadows Fall is strong in every aspect, and in every heavy style they attempt, and these songs will leave scars in your unprepared mind! -- Lady Enslain
