Introduction: SHADOW EDEN
We being to you Shadow Eden, a group that has something to say, and well said it is…
Forged by incorporating progressive, rock, metal, fusion, and jazz styling, “Shadow Eden” delivers well crafted, listenable songs which feature virtuoso performances designed to please the ear of musicians and music lovers alike. The rest of the story is best told however, through the words and deeds of others.
The Shred Lord himself, Joe Stump proclaims “…..A power trio of excellent players, Shadow Eden combine elements of progressive rock, fusion and guitar-driven metal into well structured, highly musical, and very listenable tunes. …”
Shadow Eden’s self titled, self-financed and promoted ALL instrumental release, hailed by WORT Mosh Pit Radio as a “great” listen “for the proggy metal fan…”, became a mainstay of national radio entering the top 40 on the CMJ charts. “SHADOW EDEN” culminates the heralded talents of founding members David Mercado and drummer Kenny Lane. Bassist extraordinaire Randy Coven (of Steve Vai/Steve Morse/Yngwie Malmsteen fame) rounded out the line up in July 2011.
