Shadows Past is a Progressive/Power Metal band from Sweden, founded in 2005 by vocalist Ola Halen.  The band has always viewed themselves as a “live” outfit, and their Perfect Chapter debut certainly is a long-time coming.  Similar to the obscure band name chosen, the songs on Perfect Chapter often come across veiled and opaque.  Drummer Olle Lindroth provides some occasional nice work on the double-bass drums, but Halen’s voice tends to dominate and disrupt many tracks on this release.  Hearing his consistent higher octave tones become like fingernails running down a chalkboard, unfortunately making Shadows Past’s debut everything but “perfect”.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
