Shield Of Wings: Begin the year of 2022 with their symphonic metal resurrection.

Shield Of Wings – Unfinished

Shield Of Wings is Chicagoland’s premier symphonic metal band. Infused with power, folk, and death metal, the sound is a fresh twist on the genre, sure to perk your ears. In the years since the band’s hiatus, songwriter James Gregor has been working earnestly on new music, which will showcase the style further evolved, while keeping its uniquely eclectic sound.  Shield Of Wings reveals cover art by Maximos Manolis

Shield Of Wings will begin the year of 2022 with their symphonic metal resurrection, and their debut full-length album, Unfinished, releasing on February 11. The track Mind Of Myth,

«These songs’ roots range from a decade old to only a year, yet they all carry the weight and concurrent theme of a soul obsessed with self-analysis and growth. Often, we travel these roads seemingly alone, and sometimes we get lost in the meaningless or mundane sloughs of despond. Hope can only remain if we keep the flame alive, and sometimes we are lucky enough to find others to carry the flame with us. We hope this music helps to carry your flame for a little while, and that we may all, in our Unfinished states, never give up on our reshaping».

Sure to appeal to fans of symphonic metal giants Nighwish and Epica, as well as Hans Zimmer, James Horner and Howard Shore, their new album, Unfinished, will bring into view 10 bombastic compositions of poetic exploration. The track Wetland,

Each song from Unfinished explores themes of growth through self-examination, regret, sacrificial death and rebirth. From the Crushing Hail of the suffering which is inherent in life, the listener is carried through this journey, until the final track expounds upon the realization that we are all, in ways, The Scarred Clay Reshaping. With bold, vast orchestral compositions soaring over chugging guitars, Shield Of Wings makes it abundantly clear that they are Unfinished, in more ways than one.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7231 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
