SHADOW HOST
"APOCALYPTIC SYMPHONY"
METALISM RECORDS

SHADOW HOST was formed back in 1993 out Moscow, Russia. These guys play some
unrelenting Thrash Metal music in the mid '90's vein. They also blend in some Power
Metal influences as well. The band borrows from the classic Bay Area Thrash Metal
sound that basically started it all and adds in some German Thrash Metal as well. They
have a some what cleaner Thrash Metal sound, which is basically because of The Power
Metal elements present all through out. The Power Metal influences are taking from
European Power Metal that was spawned in the early 2000's. These guys blend two great
styles together to create one seamless sound. The fast paced and aggressive double bass
drum sound is the driving force behind their sound. Then they add the guitar riffing and
speed heavy shredding really builds their sound as one massive entity. Adding in the
melodic Power Metal vocals and grittier Thrash Metal vocals from Alexey Markov pulls
the bands sound all together. These guys are one of the best bands I have ever heard
emerge from Russia. This was my first time experience them, but they now have a fan for
life. If you were to mix in parts of
TESTAMENT, FORBIDDEN, DRAGONFORCE,
BLIND GUARDIAN, ICED EARTH, GAMMA RAY
& HELLOWEEN, then you
would get a great idea of how amazing of a band
SHADOW HOST is! Get this one, now!
