White Shadow is an industrial rock band originally from Huntingtown, MD, that has relocated to Baltimore, MD. The band has a well established fan base in Calvert County, and has fostered one in its new hometown. The band blends dance-oriented electronic music with hard rock and metal to create a sound unique in the area. Heavy use of melodic synthesizers and sung rather than screamed vocals sets White Shadow apart from the normal trends seen in many bands. Pulsing electronic drums and emphasis on bass lines make the music prime for a club. However, the music played by the band is as much at home on the dance floor as it is in a mosh pit. Crunching, distorted guitars combined with the throbbing drums drive many of the songs into a frenetic, energy-filled peak. White Shadow has been compared to the likes of Rammstein, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, and KMFDM. While these comparisons are valid, the band maintains its own unique idiosyncrasies not seen in any other industrial band. The band released their first album, Mindbreak in 2007 and released their second, Deus Destroyed in September of 2008.
Deus Destroyed is the second album by White Shadow. It contains songs often played live, and was recorded at Nightsky Studios in Waldorf, MD. Deus Destroyed contains the popular song "System Overhaul," as well as remixes of other songs.
