It was in the summer of 2007 the founding members and both Rhythm/Lead guitarists; Walter Martinez, and Emilio Coello from Los Angeles, Ca met for the first time. Their mission was to start a brutally melodic Power Metal band with European influences such as Helloween, Dimmu Borgir, Iron Maiden and many other genres of metal in Los Angeles. With the absence of power metal bands of a respectable caliber in LA; they needed to complete their musical arsenal by finding an explosive drummer and bass player to hold down the ground pounding rhythm they envisioned.
Thereafter, Walter met drummer Romeo Cisneros, from East LA, Ca at a local black metal show, which lead to an audition, and this is how they found their machine gun drummer. Tim Anderson joined in January of 2008 to bring the power metal vocals they were looking for. Steve Ceron played bass guitar throughout 2007-08 and recorded the Nightmares Made Flesh EP and the Divine Darkness Full-Length CD, but shortly departed soon after the recording of Divine Darkness for personal reasons. Joseph Silva was quickly added to fill the strongly abrasive rhythm on bass guitar.
Shadows Entwined has pressed forward throughout Los Angeles and Orange County, performing at venues such as The world famous Whisky A GoGo, The Key Club, The Knitting Factory, Mirror Image Showcase Studios, ect. With the rising buzz of the "Nightmares Made Flesh EP Shadows Entwined quickly went into the stuido in October of 2008 to record their full length Album. They completed recording Divine Darkness In December of 2008. With the release of Divne Darkness Shadows Entwined will embark on a summer tour.
