"It's great to see a band who took so long to perform live. We still hold the record but I believe Shadow Gallery are a bit awesome, so the long wait for them holds the record for awesomeness. Ha! Great to see you here."

Symphonic Prog Metal

This is a sub-genre that true prog fans dismiss but this is another reason why prog today is so vibrant

Profile Information

I am the following; a
Style of Prog
Progressive Metal
With Digital Ghosts, SHADOW GALLERY’s members Brendt Allman, Carl Cadden-James, Gary Wehrkamp and new addition Brian Ashland have focused their powerful energies on creating a seamless blend of progressive, metal, and symphonic rock. A transcendent work of musical art, Digital Ghosts advances the boundaries of these genres into new directions.
Upon releasing three albums in the 90’s (Shadow Gallery in 1992, Carved in Stone in 1995 and Tyranny in 1998), SHADOW GALLERY had not only met great worldwide acclaim from both media and fans alike for their original and very profound stylistic approach but also by this time, there was no doubt that the band had established themselves as a major force in progressive metal. In 2001, SHADOW GALLERY released their 4th album, Legacy, their last album on the Magna Carta label. Duke Egbert of the Daily Vault wrote, “Legacy is a brilliant, elegant, musically complex, melodic work, worthy of a band many call one of the founders of the prog-metal genre.” By 2005 SHADOW GALLERY had signed a new deal with Inside Out Music and returned to the scene with their newest album, Room V, which once again stunned the critics, prompting one reviewer to write “SHADOW GALLERY is for metal what Queen was for rock.”
Immediately after the release of Room V, SHADOW GALLERY began writing their next musical project for Inside Out Music but tragedy struck in October of 2008 with the death of lead singer and original band member Mike Baker. Deeply saddened and shocked by his passing due to a heart attack, the band vowed to honor their fallen band mate and the fans who loved him by moving forward with their 6th studio album, Digital Ghosts.
While recording with different guest vocalists, the band discovered a comrade in singer Brian Ashland, their newest member who debuts on Digital Ghosts. Coming off a series of deep concept albums that cover personal drama, political indifference, spirituality and the maturing of morality, SHADOW GALLERY has turned their musical wands towards telling their musical tales through individual songs on Digital Ghosts. During the writing and recording of this mature set of songs, the theme of "loss" became an obvious overtone that made its way to the emotion in the music and the lyrics, and still the mood, while dark at times, is full of passion and power and has a great uplifting appeal. In true SHADOW GALLERY tradition, Digital Ghosts features guest artists including Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) with lead vocals on “Strong”, Clay Barton (Suspyre) with lead vocals shared with Carl Cadden-James on “Venom”, guitarist Srdjan Brankovic (Expedition Delta, Alogia) on “Strong” and keyboardist Vivien Lalu (Shadrane) on “Gold Dust”. Acclaimed drummer Joe Nevolo returns to guest on the songs “Venom” and “Gold Dust”.
Digital Ghosts - created with honor and passion, emotional, complex with superior musicianship is a progressive rock tour d’ force with influences derived from acts such as Genesis, Rush, Queen, Yes, Pink Floyd or even Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, presented in a contemporary shape and format that is set to also impress followers of bands like Dream Theater and Symphony X. As the ending drum motif of the album’s closing track “Haunted” hammers the point home, it is clear that Digital Ghosts is a benchmark classic album for SHADOW GALLERY. This concise disc of a plethora of ideas and emotions runs from the ravaging heaviest of guitar riffs to the softest moments of reflection. You will feel like you were on the ride of your life, eager to get back for more. SHADOW GALLERY has lined it all up, and is inviting the listener in to complete the equation of progressive rock in its finest of moments.
