Biography

At least 6 different artists:

1.) Shadow is a melodic death metal band from Osaka, Japan, which was founded in 1993 by Yoshio “Cain” Kudo.

Official Website: http://www.shadow666.net/

In 1997, Shadow recorded their first demos with the following members:
- Yoshio Kudo (bass)
- Yuichi Sumimoto (guitar)
- Shinichiro Okada (guitar)
- Mitsuhiro Emomoto (drums)

Without a vocalist of their own, Shadow hired a session singer to record their first demos. After distributing the demos worldwide, Shadow released their first album, Shadow, under Spikefarm Records. At that point, female vocalist Tokiko Shimamoto (who is known as one of the hardest female singers) joined Shadow.

Century Media was responsible for the release in Europe and America.

Their second full length album, Forever Chaos, is due for release on November 5th, 2008.


2.) Shadow, or ‘The Mighty Shadow’ is a Trinidadian Calypsonian.

Winston Anthony Bailey HBM (born 4 October 1941), better known by his stage name “The Mighty Shadow” or “Shadow”, is a calypsonian from Trinidad and Tobago. Bailey was born in Belmont, a suburb of Port of Spain in Trinidad, but grew up in Les Coteaux, Tobago, with his grandparents. He began to sing at a very early age and he wanted to be a singer although his grandfather told him that he should pursue law.

    This band surely deserves respect, as well as more fans. Tokiko Shimamoto is just as good as Angela Gossow in her earlier days. [2] Amen to that.

    Wow I thought this band was long dead. I got a Promo CD of their self-titled album and never heard from them again. Good to see they're still going. I'll have to check out their newer material.

    "Before True Light" is soooo badass. The effects on her voice suck a lot on this track though.
