SHADOWS is a new dark avant-garde metal band from Immolation and ex-GOREAPHOBIA guitarist Alex Bouks, who brought other former GOREAPHOBIA members to the table. As founding member of the Philadelphia death metal band GOREAPHOBIA, Alex has been involved in the extreme underground music scene since the late 80's. His technical style of aggressive, melodic guitar work has resulted in worldwide recognition being a member of such acclaimed acts as IMMOLATION, INCANTATION, MASTER, RUINOUS and FUNEBRARUM. Now Alex has returned to his musical roots in SHADOWS, with classic influences featuring PINK FLOYD, CELTIC FROST, SISTERS OF MERCY, BLACK SABBATH, MERCYFUL FATE or VOIVOD, and with musicians he always felt chemistry with, including Henry Piotrkowski and Jake G of T.O.M.B. and the split-up GOREAPHOBIA and Lance Walter of another Philadelphia unit, DOMINANCE. Their debut EP was produced at Rhawn Street Studios in the US and mastered by Tore Stjerna (MAYHEM, WATAIN) at Necromorbus Studio in Sweden.
