Only Shadows Touch – an international heavy metal album with singers from the USA, Sweden, France and the UK. With influences from the Scorpions to Blind Guardian, the album has an 80’s hard rock feel and a modern symphonic metal twist.
The concept behind the album is the distance we put between ourselves and others in our hearts and minds, this includes pressures in our lives to reject our neighbours and our dreams. It’s a journey of self discovery, or, it was for me at least!
Be sure to give the album a listen for free on Bandcamp and if you buy the whole thing you get a secret, epic bonus track that really helps complete the journey. The whole album is on sale for £4.50 or individual songs are £0.79.
