“We are very happy that this album is finally seeing the light of day. It’s our first full-length album and it’s been in the works for a couple of years, so it’s exciting that it is finally done. We got killer artwork for the cover, great production, and it sounds awesome. For a small band like us, having a debut album that looks and sounds as good as it does is really exciting! From the first song to the last song, it’s high-energy, it flows really well, it’s just non-stop. We can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”

“These guys…were doing double freaking leads…It was one of the most insane, incredible things that I’ve seen…it was kind of like Iron Maiden…it was inf****kingsane. Check these guys out.” ~ Keeper Magazine

“their recent studio release contains everything one could think of in a power metal group. They have the prototypical flying guitar leads, blazing fast guitar chugs, extended solo breaks and over the top vocals. What really makes this band shine is their impressive guitar work. The duo of Danny Fang and Nick Harrington, relatively new to the metal scene themselves, easily puts them into San Diego’s higher echelon of guitar players. They often trade solos in their 5-7 minute long song structures, exchange guitar leads during bridges and choruses, and are incredibly sharp.” – Metal Assault

Album / Live Band Line Up:
Brian Dell – Vocals
Nick Harrington – Guitar
Danny Fang – Guitar
Chris Bader – Bass
Sean Woodman – Drums

Unleashing the rhythmic beasts with fast, aggressive, and heavy melodic passion, Nightshadow brings unforgiving committed focus to epic power metal with the rich, powerful, dynamic force in the vocals of singer Brian Dell; thunderous, exhilarated energy of drummer Sean Woodman; dominating, double lead shredding magic in guitarists Nick Harrington and Danny Fang; rounding out with the crushing, methodical thumping of bassist Chris Bader laying a secure concrete foundation.

Originally formed in 2012 by guitarist Nick Harrington who then moved years later to San Diego to connect with his remaining band members, Nightshadow pounded the stage hard at their debut show in July 2016 and quickly developed a solid reputation with enthusiastic feedback and strong positive audience responses to their metal musical efforts fused with influences of Amon Amarth, King Diamond, Slayer, Helloween, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Hammerfall, and Stratovarius.

With tight instrumentation blended with intense perfection of notes hit on point, Nightshadow further established themselves by sharing the stage with the best of San Diego’s local talent as well as opening for national acts including Appice Brothers, The Iron Maidens, Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime, Marty Friedman, Hammerfall, Beastö Blancö, and Adrenaline Mob.
