about

Shadowrise's self titled debut album "Shadowrise" is out now!

"Shadowrise" is a diverse album with a unique sound. Melodic metal anthems like that of Blind Guardian and Nightwish meeting the rage and bombastic energy of Wintersun and Fleshgod Apocalypse.

It's packed with 11 songs full of killer material, exploring the battles between darkness and light. A bonus track was added to show the roots of Shadowrise, called 'Cursed'
.

released March 23, 2018

Many thanks go to Erik van Ittersum for his excellent work arranging the album's orchestrations, as well as composing the intro. For his mastery of the mix, technical work, and role as co-producer, we thank Daan Janzing of In The Room Studios.

Ex-members Roman Potasse (main-composer of "Fight Now") and Yordi Florax (bass recordings and main-composer of "Lost in Time", "Evil Conductor", "The Chosel Vessel", and "Cradle of Death") are of course deserving of our gratitude and respect. Guest vocalists Jan Willem Ketelaers, José Galardo and Peter Moltmaker from the Epic Rock Choir gave fantastic performances for a few of the more "massive" choirs. We also thank Michael Streat for lending his voice, not only for choir lines but also the spoken passage in "Cursed" and for Leon Caufijn for lending his voice in pre-production fase.

We thank Antonio Jimenez for his excellent album artwork: Cover art, "Atlantis" art and booklet creation. On a similar front, Kelly Thans has been fantastic behind the camera, and her photos speak for themselves!

Our eternal gratitude goes to Leo and Bertie Sevat for their fantastic support, cooking, and hospitality. We may never be able to repay your kindness, but we will do our best!

Joey, Peter and Pedro from JBM Events have been invaluable in their work promoting, managing and advertising.

Daniel Boomsma: main composer, co-producer, guitar recordings
Laura Guldemond: lyrical/vocal compositions and recordings, styling
Jack Streat: lyrical edits and vocal recordings
Appie Kalac: website and media management
Joris Sevat: drum arrangements and recordings

Track Name: Lost in Time
It’s centuries old, always retold
The tale, it is endless, infinite searching
For in this world, for what it is worth,
We all have to find a place to call home
It’s centuries old always retold
The tale, it is endless, infinite searching
For in this world, for what it is worth,
We all have to find a place to call home

I’m completing the cycle
Locked up in time
It goes on in circles
An endless crime
I know there is someone to blame
Blood is on my hands

I’m clawing at the grave
In endless rage
Sanity’s slipping fast
How long does the snake keep biting its tail?

I am stuck in the nightmare
Still my old dream carries on

One step away from Paradise
If you know how to let go
Hope never dies
One step away to leave the lies
As it all came back to me
I’m my own worst enemy

Telling tales to the water
The best way to tell
Put a letter in glass,
An ear to a shell
Hear as the darkness unfolds
In your heart lies the truth

Drowning in the sea
Lost in the waves
Through the storms washed ashore
Carry me home on the cold wind’s melody

I am stuck in the nightmare
Still my old dream carries on

One step away from Paradise
If you know how to let go
Hope never dies
One step away to leave the lies
As it all came back to me
I’m my own worst enemy

It’s centuries old, broken and cold
The tomb of our future, lost in time
Glimpses of memories fade in the night
Left below as we hasten our climb
Make your mark and stand
For if you lose it all, you are what you had
Reaching the peak, all paths lead down from the prize
How can we say when it dies?

One step away from Paradise
If you know how to let go
Hope never dies
One step away to leave the lies
They are my specialty
I’m my own worst enemy

I’m one step from Paradise
All it needs is letting go!
Track Name: Cryptkeeper
It’s centuries old, always retold
The tale, it is endless, infinite searching
For in this world, for what it is worth,
We all have to find a place to call home

Track Name: To Live and Die For
It is said that some lives
Are connected through time
Watching nightfall over the hourglass
As it takes her into Hell

Just realized
Your love is a lie
Blinding the eyes
Leading to my demise
You deserve to go down with me

Invoke the sorrow in me

I was bound to your calling
And dwelled where darkness was growing strong in your heart

You made me feel the stabs of a thousand swords
I needed a home, you just closed the door
You gave me dreams to live and die for
Then broke them all before my eyes

This is farewell
I’m not looking back
In front of me
Spectres of madness be
I am haunted forevermore

I was bound to your calling
I died where darkness was growing strong in your heart

You made me feel the stabs of a thousand swords
I needed a home, you just closed the door
You gave me dreams to live and die for
Then broke them all before my eyes

Realise you must take this into own hands
You decide the outcome of this raging torment
Nevermore rely on the power to create in your mind
Conceive, break free, break away, find yourself

Realise you must take this into own hands
You decide the outcome of this raging torment
Nevermore rely on the power to create in your mind
Conceive, break free, break away from this place and leave

Fight your curse
Find yourself and leave
Fight your curse
Find yourself and leave

You made me feel the stabs of a thousand swords
I needed a home, you just closed the door
You gave me dreams to live and die for
then broke them all before my eyes

Bleed
From a thousand wounds
Oh you just closed the door
Right in front of me
Broken dreams
Were to live and die for
Oh you just closed the door
Right in front of me
Broken dreams
Track Name: Evil Conductor
See him crawling in the darkness
What will make him whole?
Never complete, always broken,
Trying to take control

And it came to pass
That the dark symphony was written
In the years of contemplation
He who conducts has power over all who listen

Diabolus in musica rings
From hell with hate it sings
When the demon composer conducts
With his deed he destructs

Bringing forth the evil of folklore
The sting of death is in its core

As the prophecy foretells
As is chanted in ancient spells
The apocalypse is near
Bringing despair and fear

Bringing forth the evil of folklore
The sting of death is in its core

Demons are crawling from hellfire’s pit
The angels hear and can’t resist
It’s calling, they’re falling
Transcendent melodies sounding above are breaking the seventh seal
The evil conductor’s masterpiece sounds like

Being possessed by the occult score
You’ll be yearning to hear more
And find a certain death
Soon you’ll breathe your last breath

Bringing forth the evil of folklore
The sting of death is in its core

Demons are crawling from hellfire’s pit
The angels hear and can’t resist
It’s calling, they’re falling
Transcendent melodies sounding above are breaking the seventh seal
The evil conductor’s masterpiece, his revenge

Lament all the fallen
Lament the lost ones
Salute the union of lost souls

He is lurking in the shadows
In his heart a hole
Without mercy, without remorse
Preying on your soul

Demons are crawling from hellfire’s pit
The angels hear and can’t resist
It’s calling, they’re falling
Transcendent melodies sounding above are breaking the seventh seal
The evil conductor’s masterpiece is complete!
Track Name: The Chosen Vessel
Give into me
To your desires
What is this voice I hear?
You are chosen
Together we are strong
This can’t be right so prove me wrong

Now hold and consume me
My energy’s slipping away
Your blood is the key to Gaia
The era of chaos has come

All the wise men can’t reach me now
Cause I am the chosen vessel
Enslaved Forever!

Unchain the essence
Of your shadow self
You hypnotize me paralyse me
Feed on your hate,
destroy, suffocate
I’m your claws, under your command

Oh don’t let me do this
The void is taking me in
Your blood is the key to darkness
The era of chaos has come

All the brave men can’t save me now
Cause I am the chosen vessel
Stronger than ever!

I’m fueled by your weakness
My vessel to destroy
As above, so below
You will drive the human race to extinction

Even angels can’t save me now
Cause I am the chosen vessel
Born into chaos
Even hellfire can’t cure me now
The death legion took me in
I am the chosen vessel
Track Name: Power of the Moonlight
I toss and turn the whole night, I seem to lose this fight
I’m breaking down terrified, my eyes stare open wide
Ears start to ring, adrenaline kicks in
I have to get this off my chest and release this energy

Leave me be
I’m running wild and free

Feel the power of the moonlight
I’m running through the woods wild
To rays of light from the falling stars
Feel it surging in the twilight
Unleashing every wild child
See it in the dark
It’s shining through my heart

Bones twist and turn ‘til I break, it’s a force I can’t control
This will go wrong, there’s no doubt, you hear me cry into the night
I lust for blood, you’d better run, you would
‘Cause hunger’s tearing me apart, I’m not myself and you should

Leave me be
I’m running wild and free

Feel the power of the moonlight
I’m running through the woods, wild
To rays of light from the falling stars
Feel it surging in the twilight
Unleashing every wild child
See it in the dark
It’s shining through my heart

Feel the power of the moonlight
I’m running through the woods, wild
To rays of light from the falling stars
Feel it surging in the twilight
Unleashing every wild child
See it in the dark
It’s shining through my heart

Feel the power of the moonlight
I’m running through the woods, wild
To rays of light from the falling stars
Feel it surging in the twilight
Unleashing every wild child
See it in the dark
It’s shining through my heart
Track Name: Fight Now
Watch as the world’s on fire
It is burning for hearts’ desires

Like thunder and lightning strike
It could all be over soon
So hold your head up high
And let your words be true

Fight now
For the life we live
For the ones we love
And the good times
Now stand tall
For living our way
And for those in need
Living in misery

Hear the screams, they never end
Are there angels from heaven sent

Like thunder and lightning strike
It could all be over soon
Oh now stand your ground
And let your voice be heard

Fight now
For the life we live
For the ones we love
And the good times
Now stand tall
For living our way
And for the ones
Out there suffering

Fight now
For the life we live
Oh, fight now
For living our way
Yeah, fight now
For the ones we love
Fight now
Outcasts and vagabonds

Fight now
Fight now
And stand tall

Fight now
For the life we live
For the ones we love
And the good times
Now stand tall
For living our way
And for those in need
Living in misery

Oh, fight now
For the life we live
Oh, fight now
For living our way
Yeah, fight now
For the ones we love
Fight now
Outcasts and vagabonds

Fight now
Fight now
Stand tall
Track Name: Echoes
Let me enter where the world is silent
All thoughts unspoken until I know who I am
I stare at pieces of a broken mirror
And wonder which reflects my destiny

Oh silence let me be
Echoes of the past are blaming me
Can silence ease my pain
I see all
Hear all

My cries are fading until they’re just whispers
My tears a river running everlastingly
No absolution for this godless moonchild
Darkness has taken my cursed heart

Oh silence let me be
Echoes of the past are blaming me
Can silence ease my pain
I see all
Hear all

Take me to a sacred place
Where I stop to feel at all
Come take me to Neverland
Where angel wings can stop my fall

Oh, let me break free, to serenity
Now life’s forsaken me

Oh silence let me be
Echoes of the past won’t set me free
Can silence ease my pain
I see all
Hear all
Track Name: Cradle of Death
Voracious warriors sail across the waters
Only to discover there is no end to the seas
Fear strikes in the hearts of brave man
For they will die alone far away from home

No solace is found in this cradle of death
See the heavens turn without light that shows where to go

Hell-bound, Paradise’s rejects
Broken and defeated before the gods they stand
Begging for the gods to hear them
For a chance to live and die a warrior

No solace is found in this cradle of death
See the heavens turn without light that shows where to go

The bright light is burning their eyes
The dry sun’s exhausting but their will’s prevailing
All their dreams have sunken deep
They’re living on inside the ocean’s abyss

At the end of the horizon
You can see them sailing
Close to the edge of the world
Facing the storms that they encounter on the way
To the Gates of Faith, leaving all they know

No solace is found in this cradle of death
See the heavens turn without light that shows where to go
Track Name: Atlantis
Find it under water
10000 fathoms deep
Between ruins and the waves asleep
Frozen in time, buried alive
In the shadows down below

Your sins turned on thee
By dark runes to rule sea and earth
For science you turned to the laws of the underworld

I’d go back in time to free Atlantis
I wish you were mine to see
You are holding the power to create and destroy
World of wonders
Unwinding space and time

Yeah you had your chance
Took it and played your hand
Gave it all you got and more, it didn’t last
You were bound to lose by your reckless pride
And riches that you took

Your sins turned on thee
By dark runes to rule sea and earth
For science you turned to the laws of the underworld

I’d go back in time to free Atlantis
I wish you were mine to see
You are holding the power to create and destroy
World of wonders
Unwinding space and time

Your sins turned on thee
By dark runes to rule sea and earth
For science you turned to the laws of the underworld

I’d go back in time to see Atlantis
Your secret is safe with me
You’re holding the power to create and destroy
You’re a world of wonders

Men will go and drown themselves for thee
Cause it is evil that you keep
Planets could vanish in the blink of an eye
Changing the course of time
Oh it could mean the end
Unwinding space and time
Track Name: Cursed
You feel the dark spell slowly sinking through your bones
Shadows are lurking in every corner of your home
Coming alive, they're slowly tearing you apart
You have to look inside your heart

The gods have forsaken you mortal
The skies are turning grey, and
you are cursed for the rest of eternity
You will pay!

See the dead are dancing, coming out of their graves
Feel the pain of the people that you have enslaved
Hear the screams of tortured souls, the sound of truth
You know it's all because of you!

The gods have forsaken you mortal
The skies are turning grey, and
you are cursed for the rest of eternity
You will pay!

Now the earth is splitting open at your feet
Hear the clock strike for your heart beat

And thus the great curse awakens from below
Sure as the ancient winds will cry through the glades
and fray the mountain peaks
while whispering warnings of peril to come
The shadows will rise to claim your fallen soul
You are doomed
You will die!

And now the end is coming
The dead are rising out of their graves and
After years of torment now you’ll pay
Feel the wrath of the gods
Their might will strike you down
And end your life forever

Life is flashing by
You see all the things you loved
But now, oh now they've gone away
You had no one to fight
You had nothing to fear
But now, now your time is up

The golden thunder coming from the sky
Will strike you down and throw you in the fire
You had it all, but now you'll fall
To your own grave (and this will be your final day)

The clock is ticking away
You know your curse won't go away

You are cursed!
