Adam D., who has previously helmed the boards on albums for All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, Unearth, The Devil Wears Prada, and Every Time I Die, is also intimately involved in the writing of the new Shadows Fall material.

The band has released six studio albums, two DVDs, a collection of B-sides and one Greatest Hits compilation, selling over 770,000 to date and has had music featured on the hugely popular video game series Guitar Hero. With the band’s sound often described as having an unmistakable, seamless blend of metal and hard rock, Shadows Fall has grown to help define the very essence of modern aggressive music, showcasing their distinctive mix of bone-splintering aggression and melodic nuance.
