Forest of Shadows

Forest of Shadows was founded as a solo-project in the autumn of 1997 by Niclas Frohagen. After having recorded the demo "The Silent Cry", multi-instrumentalist Micce Andersson joined the band. Together they reinterpreted and polished up the old material and released it as promotion material both on cd and online at mp3.com, all with the intention of attracting a record deal.

Forest of Shadows was founded as a solo-project in the autumn of 1997 by Niclas Frohagen. After having recorded the demo "The Silent Cry", multi-instrumentalist Micce Andersson joined the band. Together they reinterpreted and polished up the old material and released it as promotion material both on cd and online at mp3.com, all with the intention of attracting a record deal. Putting songs on mp3.com turned out to be a winning concept and for a couple of weeks Forest of Shadows dominated the metal charts. The English company Rage of Achilles (Cult of Luna, mistress) had noted this and offered the band a record deal. In 2001 the mCD "Where Dreams Turn To Dust" was released and soon afterwards the work on a full-length album began. During its production, Niclas and Micce started drifting apart, not as friends but in terms of musical direction. This resulted in that Niclas finished the album, later on titled "Departure", on his own. As if the separation wasn't bad enough, Rage of Achilles went out of business just as the album was finished. The record deal was handed over to Finnish label Firedoom, who not only released the album, but also offered a deal for yet another album. This time things went more smoothly and in 2008, after three years of slow progression, the album "Six Waves of Woe" was finished. « hide
