From The Shadows is a Melodic Death Metal band, formed in New York City, in 2005. It's members consist of Jasin (Guitar & Vocals), Mikkaal (Guitar and Vocals), Scotty (Bass), and James (Drums). In contrast to most bands of the genre at the time of their formation, From The Shadows focused their lyrical content and imagery heavily on Japanese Anime. Paying homage to such works as, Dragonball Z, and Elfen Lied, the band offered a unique spin on modern-day mythology, drawing it's similarities, and familiarities to life experiences, struggles and sorrows. The influence of early Septic Flesh and At The Gates can be prominently heard in the band's music.

From The Shadows disbanded in early 2007, later re-emerging in 2013. Some short time later, the band recorded 'Not Forgotten', an EP released August 24th, 2013. The EP was recorded, mixed and mastered at Straf Drah Studio in New York City by Jasin Elric. Since it's inception, From The Shadows has remained an entirely DIY band.

The EP, "Not Forgotten" is a compilement of original songs, rewritten and re-recorded from the band's demo to a higher quality standard; with the addition of a few new songs. The lyrical focus and imagery is surrounded around a DBZ character named, "Android 17". He is a man who's life and identity are stolen, left with nothing but the one person he loves; and in time, he would lose her as well. It's a story of tragedy and redemption. « hide
