BURNING SHADOWS is proud to announce we will be melting faces at the Warriors of Metal Festival VII, June 26-28, 2014 in Columbus, OH, USA!
From Warriors of Metal, Inc.:
January 17, 2014. Cincinnati, Ohio. The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is excited to announce the confirmation of Rockville, Maryland’s Power Metal band, BURNING SHADOWS whose awe inspiring performance at 2012′s Pathfinder Metalfest V in Atlanta, Georgia as a support band for the legendary Raven, led to the Warriors Of Metal Fest organizer Datis Alaee to comment: “I had known Burning Shadows for a while at that time since my friend Tim Regan had sent his band’s previous albums for air play on my Metal Messiah Radio show. But making our annual pilgrimage from Ohio to Georgia to support our friend Hoyt Parris with the 5th edition of his Pathfinder Promotions’ Metalfest series, Burning Shadows was a definite not-to-be-missed band for me and boy did those guys deliver!!! My neck was wrecked, my ass was kicked and my face was melted. Big kudos to Hoyt for such an awesome booking! After their performance I went over to my wife and said ‘We HAVE TO get these guys to our Fest!!!’”
Band guitarist Tim Regan states: “We are thrilled to join the lineup for Warriors of Metal Fest VII! It is a huge honor to be part of a festival that always brings together so many amazing acts. We are grateful to battle alongside so many like-minded bands, organizers and fans. Datis has been a strong supporter of ours and we very much look forward to bringing our music to new audiences looking to help us prove that true metal is alive and well. Many of our favorite bands that we’ve shared the stage with have played this festival in years past and we’re excited about what’s in store for 2014.”

We are proud to announce The Last One to Fall EP, out November 12, 2013, a “live in studio” EP featuring two brand new tracks, “The Last One to Fall” and “Southwind,” and two Burning Shadows classics, “New Dawn Arise” from Into the Primordial and an abridged version of “A Thousand Lies” from Gather, Darkness! The Last One to Fall EP is available in MP3 form by donation (with no minimum) only at burningshadows.com and burningshadows.bandcamp.com. Digital pre-orders ($1 or more) and the CD version include a cover of “Battle Hymn” by Manowar. Proceeds from The Last One to Fall EP will help finance our third full-length album.
After the triumph of Gather, Darkness! in 2012, it was decided that we must improve the recording hardware at The Halls of Glory in order to fully capture the power of our newest songs for the third full- length album. In January 2013, the studio was upgraded and it was time to stress test the new setup. We, of course, went all out and recorded 18 tracks “live” in the studio to push the gear to the limit. Our setup was modified for the purposes of the recording: amp simulators were used for the guitars, Tom was trapped in the vocal chamber, and bass, solos, harmonies, and additional vocals were added after the initial tracking was complete. This process took quite a while with all the goings on in the meantime: shows, festivals, a minitour, the departure of bassist Chris Dagenhart, the return of Aaron El-Zeftawy, and finally, the tracking of the third full length album. We decided to release some of the best tracks from our recording session to replace our now sold-out Oathbreaker EP. Enjoy The Last One to Fall EP while we continue to forge our next album!
