Cold Shadow

Beginning in a basement in a small Connecticut town, Cold Shadow band rehearsals were beer soaked mosh pits, packed with kids from all over town. Formed by Michael Desmond, Cold Shadow was a mash up of gothic metal, death metal, horror music, punk and hardcore. The early shows were loud and crazy. The shows featured a corpse jumping out of a coffin and blowing fire and Desmond ripping guitar solos with his teeth. Over the years Cold Shadow has seen some lineup changes, as well as slightly different music directions. Only three Ep's were released. In early 2012, Desmond decided to finish what he started back in the basement days with a full length album. Desmond was going for the sound that was always what he envisioned Cold Shadow being. Pillars of Lies was the result of a year of work, getting back to the roots of what made Cold Shadow popular to begin with, only this time, with a more polished, production. Pillars of Lies features pummeling double bass, searing guitar solos, progressive strong structures, and dark, philosophical lyrical content. Cold Shadow is from New London, CT.
