Biography

Shadow Reichenstein is a Dallas, Tx. based recording artist created by C. E. Malone II- singer/songwriter and creative director of the band. The music of Shadow Reichenstein has attracted fans of many different genres over the years, from Goth, Rockabilly, Garage and Surf to Hard Rock, Punk and more recently Metal. Mr. Malone began recording the first Shadow Reichenstein demos and developing the c
oncept of the band back in the mid nineties. During these same formative years he adopted the pseudonym Shadow Reichenstein for himself after being impressed by the surname Reichenstein carved into a tombstone in a nearby cemetery.

After years of recording and perfecting the material Shadow recruited close friends Jim Thomas on guitar, Robert Galvan on bass along with a neighbor and local musician Chris Vivion on drums to complete the first band line up. They played their first official show as a band on Halloween of 1999. This show was a near perfect performance however, the original drummer Chris was replaced soon after in favor of Mark Baker a musician with whom Shadow had played with previously in another local band. This initial line up of the band soon became regulars in the Deep Ellum music scene gaining notoriety for their over the top stage shows and endless promotional efforts through flyers and graffiti.
The next step for the band was independently recording and releasing the first Shadow Reichenstein CD titled “It’s Monster Rock”. This first CD relying heavily on Horror themes, surf guitar and music of the 50’s and 60’s gained them fans in the underground Rockabilly/Garage and Gothic Rock circles popular at the time.

    Me and my brother met the band a few years ago when they played London Underwold, I don't recall anything "nazi" about them

    from what i can tell there is no pro fascist element in their lyrics so whats the big deal they don't use swastikas they use armbands which contain the bands logo a coffin a cross and a bat all which are horror themed nothing more, the some times have Iron Crosses which is a symbol of the german army predating world war 2 even going back to the crusades, not to mention those that have a problem with the "reich" portion of their name, 1. the word "reich" itself means wealthy which is not even the word used 2. the word used is "reichen" meaning to hand over and "stein" meaning stone, so unless i see some fool proof evidence I'm gonna have call bullshit on them being labeled neo-nazi's

    @ThisRazorBlade: "Reich - Something to do with the Holocaust"... oh boy, that's rather conclusive. May I direct your attention to this link? - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichenstein - Yes, it's indeed just a name of several cities, villages, places, and buildings in Germany and Austria... sorry, no "holocaust" here.
