Biography

There are multiple bands that share the name Shadowcaster:

1. Ambient project founded in 1993 by prolific USBM musician Mikael Bayusik of Tearstained, Night Conquers Day and Into The Sunless Meridian, among others.

2. Progressive metal band founded in 1995 by Rich Hessil. Originally went by the name Tangled Grace.

3. Ritualistic Electronic/Industrial/Breakbeat artist from Denver, Colorado USA (founded in 2010).

1. From Mikael’s website: Shadowcaster is not metal, but an atmospheric/ambient solo-project that I began in late 1993. I used keyboards and synths to create “sonic paintings” that are surreal, unique, and sometimes improvised. In 1994 two promos were released, and in 1996 the “Abandonment” debut CD came out on a shitty Greek label. In January 1999 two new albums were released at once on Wild Rags Records. “Psychelectronic Experience” a brand new second album. It’s much more ambient than any of the other releases with a lot of 1970’s influences (Tangerine Dream, Lucifer, Tonto’s Expanding Head Band, Klaus Schulze, etc.). It’s a concept album about LSD influenced shaman-trance meant to induce hallucinations or a meditative state helpful to transcending “normal” consciousness. The vocals are narrated through a series of strange effects. Nothing quite like it has been done before. There are 3 surreal and flowing songs clocking in for a total of 65 minutes.
