BAND Screaming Shadows
ALBUM LEGACY OF STONE
LABEL FROM THE VAULTS
OUT Nov 12th, 2021
OUR RATING 84/100
Two weeks ago was out the fifth full-lenght from SCREAMING SHADOWS, Italian band led by Tygers Of Pan Tang guitarist FRANCESCO MARRAS.
The title is LEGACY OF STONE and the album is available on FROM THE VAULTS.
After morphing the band into different line-ups and names, Screaming Shadows was established as
an entity in 1999 by Francesco Marras. All the band needed was a demo-tape and a mini-CD before
going to self-produce “Behind The Mask”, their debut album that quickly caught the attention of
the heavy/power metal scene.
The following year brought two more albums for Screaming Shadows (“In The Name Of God” in
2006 and “New Era Of Shadows” in 2009, both released on My Graveyard Productions), before the
band step up and sign to Jolly Roger Records. The following album, “Night Keeper”, released in
2011, featured a plethora of notorious guests, including Alessandro Del Vecchio (Edge Of Forever,
Silent Force), Mattia Stancioiu (Crown Of Autumn), and Pier Gonella (Necrodeath), among others.
This new album comes after ten years from previous NIGHT KEEPER, with their tipically European melodic Hm.
A powerful set of songs that embrace HM and NWOBHM influences of the past, but delivers them
with a cutting-edge musical sharpness and a powerful contemporary production.
The ten songs of this platter remind us the golden era of our loved genre, the eighties, sometimes with a more melodic touch such us in LOVE AND HATE and HEAVEN OR HELL or with a darker one such as in THE DEVIL’S MASK.
TO SUGGEST WITHOUT HESITATION!!
