NEWS: Shadow Of Intent to return with “Elegy”!
The return of Shadow Of Intent with their highly anticipated fourth studio album “Elegy” will happen on the 14th January 2022. Written and recorded at guitar player and producer Chris Wiseman’s studio in Beacon, New York and featuring guest vocals from Phil Bozeman of Whitechapel and Chuck Billy of Testament, it also sees them bringing back keyboard virtuoso Francesco Ferrini (Fleshgod Apocalypse) who has contributed additional arrangements to give a full cinematic experience to each song as he did on their hugely successful “Melancholy“. As if that wasn’t enough, the band’s new drummer Bryce Butler (The Faceless, Abigail Williams) teamed up with engineers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland at Atrium Audio (Rivers of Nihil, Lorna Shore, August Burns Red) to record live drums. Christian Donaldson also returns for mixing and mastering as well as artist by Pär Olofsson for album artwork. After that info dump, here’s second single “From Ruin… We Rise“.
Vocalist Ben Duerr comments: “Elegy marks a new chapter for Shadow of Intent, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you all. We feel this is our proudest and most passionate effort to date, and embodies a subject that needs to be remembered in tense and uncertain times such as these. Elegy reflects on the fallen of modern history’s darkest conflicts, inspired by facts, biographies and testimonies of those who were unfortunate enough to witness them, as well as the constant racing for power and resources that diminishes sovereignty worldwide.”
