Shadows Fall

Although their music sometimes bears strong similarities to the technical, progressive brand of death metal centered around Gothenburg, Sweden and epitomized by bands like In Flames, Shadows Fall actually hail from Massachusetts. Guitarists Jonathan Donais and Matthew Bachand formed the band in 1996, and by the summer of the following year, the lineup had solidified with vocalist Phil Lebonte, bassist Paul Romanko, and drummer David Germain. Building their songs around the stop-start tempo and riff changes pioneered by bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Iron Maiden, the band toured New England and eventually snagged opening slots for acts like Fear Factory and Cannibal Corpse. Toward the end of 1997, they recorded a self-financed, self-released album titled Somber Eyes to the Sky, which eventually charted in CMJ's Loud Rock Top Ten and was picked up for overseas distribution. In 1998, Shadows Fall replaced Lebonte with former Overcast vocalist Brian Fair, a more versatile singer capable of handling melody as well as pure aggression. After further touring, the band scored a deal with Century Media in 1999; their first widely distributed domestic album, Of One Blood, was issued in early 2000. Soon after, Germain left the band and was replaced by drummer Jason Bittner. After releasing The Art of Balance in 2002 the band spent the summer of 2003 on the Ozzfest tour, gaining a larger fan base thanks to their intense live show. In turn, their 2004 album The War Within debuted at number 20 on the Billboard Top 200 charts. A collection of tracks left off the album appeared in 2006 as Fallout from the War. It was followed by Threads of Life in 2007 and Retribution in 2009. A world tour followed and resulted in the 2010 release of Madness in Manila: Shadows Fall Live in the Philippines 2009, followed by global touring and festival appearances. The band returned to the studio in 2011 and cut Fire from the Sky, which was issued in the spring of 2012. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

I like the way they harnessed the melody of old style metal and the crunch of newer metal. great, great band!
Keep my girl safe
top 3 bands in my book love em all good what they do
Drown in sorrow
I seen Brian Fair so drunk he fell of the fukn' stage!!
they have all the influences from a lot of the bands in the 80's mostly megadeth, metallica, antrhax, and pantera but they move the influences forward
Inflames is not better.
I hear some Metallica influence .....
In Flames is better TAKE THIS LIFE
nothing like Metallica
This band has its own ups and downs but altogether it's pretty good.

IHATEURFAVOR I T E B A N D - That's cool, I'm sure they're bored of you too.
Haven't listened to these guys since Fallout from the war. And that album bored me, sounded like they were running out of idea's, pulling from the same bag of tricks as the previous 3 albums.


Best album to date no question!
um, idle means not doing anything.

BEST metal band EVER! The drummer is a beast - most songs, he records with only ONE TAKE!!!! David = Idle!
I agree. It was a FAIR trade.
Yeah...I know...that was really bad.
@ anonymous never be half as good as All That Remains c'mon, seriuosly!! i like both bands and they're both great and since shadows got Fair we have to bands cause of it that kickass, sounds like a pretty good deal to me!!
You know you've found good metal music when there's a section of the song they call Incomprehens i b l e . . . g o o d stuff. I wonder what they were thinking when they ditched Labonte. They'll never be half as good as All That Remains
The power of I and I is the first song I've heard from Shadows Fall. And now I want to hear more! These guys are great!
Finally a metal band that isn't afraid to do guitar solos!!!
One of my fav metal bands. That thing they do with the guitar is epic.
anothther hero lost is epic
gasm?
i love how they do there acoustic
Please let Shadows Fall and Killswitch be the bands that represent the Mass. music scene not Godsmack!!
Of one blood was an awesome album, everything after pales in comparison.
this guy is the perfect example of the typical idiot who voted for obama...
blue fatty you sound like an old man...that being said, i partially agree--there isn't enough melody here for me.
Have you ever seen godsmack play live? they are awesome... Shadows Fall are good, if you dont like the sound then dont listen, just as easy as that .. :)
Simply love em

agree War Within was the pinnacle of SF. Not that the last two have been bad but WW you can listen to from beginning to end every song kicks A$$
