Membros têm este álbum122. 1. The Light That Blinds. This is the 4th full length album from this American metal core quartet. They are from Springfield Massachusets, which is about 76 miles southwest of Boston. This album reached the spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The song, What Drives The Weak, was nominated for a Grammy in 2006. But it was edged out by a Slipknot song. This album has sold over 300,000 copies in the USA. Most of the album alternates between an old school style of heavy metal and grinding thrash. The guitars display lots of intricate melodies. The bass plays crushing riffs.
where do I begin" After releasing their debut Somber Eyes to the Sky on Matt Bachand's label Lifeless Records, the band started to gather avid attention, including that of Century Media. After signing to CMR, the band put out the album Of One Blood, featuring new drummer David "The Knife" Germain. That album sparked a chain reaction that would result in them becoming one of the fastest growing (musically and in popularity) underground bands of today. The album did reasonably well, but it's success was nothing to write home about. After a mere two years of touring with little rest, the band went to the studio to record (pretty quickly) their fourth album - the War Within. The rest is yet to be seen, but perhaps the music will speak for itself.
The War Within is that album. It will most definitely be a surprise for fans and critics who had written off Shadows Fall in recent years that The War Within delivers itself with a fury and honoring of eighties metal guitar and vocal harmonies which many thought were long forgotten by the band after two albums of delivering exactly that. Shadows Fall are one of those metal bands where an album opener can set the tone for the type of thrashing that will be delivered in the songs to follow.
