Album Notes
A thunderous concept album comprised of eleven tracks divided into four distinct sections that tell the story of Gather, Darkness!: In a post-apocalypstic, dystopian future, the Great God’s Hierarchy uses technology to oppress its subjects in a New Dark Age, but the secretive coven of Sathanas possesses its own technology that has the power dismantle the Hierarchy and truly return humanity to the Golden Age.

Gather, Darkness! is a tightly woven work that opens with a full orchestral Overture, immediately plunges into the twisted world of the Hierarchy in A Thousand Lies, then sows the seeds of rebellion in To Ruin & Divide, and ensures Sathanas’s victory in Breaking the Sanctuary. From the ominous grandeur of “Hymn to Sathanas” to the gut-wrenching, bombastic climax of “The Infamous Dawn,” Gather, Darkness! traverses a world fraught with chaos and unrest via a soundtrack of tight harmonies, haunting vocals, and a thunderous rhythm section, invoking at times feelings of fear, wonder, despair, wrath and even hope.

BURNING SHADOWS formed over a decade ago with the intent of forging a decidedly epic brand of traditional metal that seemed to be largely absent from both their hometown of Washington, DC and the global metal scene. Seeking to carry the torch of the genre's greats, namely Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, while also capturing the adventurous spirit of bands such as Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire, and Gamma Ray, the band has evolved into a potent mixture of traditional metal and European power metal that is at once high-energy, melodically catchy, and sonically majestic.
