Featuring songs such as the aforementioned eponymous track, and "Journey of Everyman", a 12-minute opus inspired by the epic fantasy novel The Talisman, the band quickly established themselves in the international prog community as a unique new group, with a distinctly symphonic and rocking sound. The band immediately went back into the studio to begin work on the follow-up. More than two years in the making, Whispers and Screams, released in late 2009, features the ambitious 34-minute suite "Project Blue", inspired by the Stephen King's horror classic, The Stand. This release sees the band reaching ambitious new heights compositionally, with critical praise from the prog community, and an exponentially growing fan base. With their lineup completed by the addition of keyboardist David Silver, drummer Jason Brower and the return of their original bassist Matt Masek, Shadow Circus is thrilled to be invited back to The Magic Room in support of The Watch. The band is currently hard at work on their third CD release, On a Dark and Stormy Night.
Once again drawing upon literary inspiration, the new release is a concept album inspired by Madeleine L'Engle's classic fantasy novel, A Wrinkle in Time. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
