A Shroud Cast Over, during their short existence between 2001 and 2003, stood out as a band that was not afraid to create their own niche. They never bowed down to the typical cliches that were popular at the time, the At The Gates / Iron Maiden thrash riffing or the tough guy mosh breakdowns that made the second rate bands coming up at the time so forgettable.

Beyond their strong musical abilities, intelligent song structuring, and vocalist CJ Krueger’s great stage presence were a set of good people who weren’t afraid to accept shows from bands that weren’t considered cool and in venues and cities that weren’t tied to Milwaukee’s insulated hardcore scene.

Their open mindedness created a lot of new hardcore kids, and they made sure to reinforce the ethics of hardcore to the people they introduced to the scene. Had they stuck it out a few more years, I’m sure they’d have been the biggest band in the city.

A Shroud Cast Over got together with intentions to make an emotional impact on other people lives and their own, through music and lyrics. R.I.P. 2001-2003
