The new Shadrane single is out!

It has actually been written/recorded a long time ago (some of you probably remember my old, sloppy bass video working on the riff haha), releasing it in 2020 with a finishing touch. Two ways to get the song:

1-I've given GREEK REBELS (metal music webzine from Greece) the full, exclusive right to make the track available as a free MP3 download via their “Carving Metal Tunes Vol.6” sampler. You don't have to spend a dime to get the single. Here is the link to the CD—also a great opportunity to discover great music from other bands:
bit.ly/36kJ2pW

2-If you like the song, but most importantly: if you want to show us that there is a future for a potential full Shadrane release, you can also consider supporting the idea via our official BANDCAMP page and get the full, CD quality:
shadrane.bandcamp.com/track/the-swaymoon-prince

The choice is yours ❤️! Thank you so much for your support through the years, hope you like the new track/direction 🙏

Soon...

“I once have sworn that I would fall in battle,
I would die with a sword in my hand,
But when this day came,
I’ve found myself begging for my life“

I am so thankful for your wonderful, positive reactions to Damian's announcement!

#throwbackthursday

This is 'younger me' when I started the LALU project in my early 20s. My father took this photo for ONIRIC METAL's promo. I had no idea what the future had in store for this musical venture back then.

I can only say that I am really happy, and excited about what this project has become—I cannot wait for you to hear the new music. I saw some old faces in the comments, long time fans who follow me since the beginning. Thank you from the bottom of my heart; your support fuels my inspiration <3

I would like to release the following statements regarding "Paint The Sky":

"Being the son of two musicians from the 70's, and growing up surrounded by progressive music, I've always wanted to craft a true-to-its-roots progressive rock album. Now I believe the time is right. I've spent a lot of time writing out what I think this album should entail, and I truly believe the end result is as sincere as it gets. Frankly, I just can't see myself making anything else right now. Along with this new album comes a change in vocalists specifically for this lighter, more progressive album."

"Today, I am so proud to announce Damian Wilson as the lead vocalist on ´Paint The Sky’. I have been a fan of Damian since forever, and his friend for quite a long time. During the MySpace years, we discussed writing an album together about fairy tales and stuff, but it never happened. It means a lot to me that today Damian and I found the right project, and time and setting, to finally work together. His voice is truly unique, instantly recognisable, and very well suited for progressive rock. Damian is such a versatile and emotional singer. I am thrilled about our partnership."

"And don't worry – I've still got a few surprises up my sleeve for this new record from names you all know and love!"

Dig Rush? Check out Joop’s beautiful bass work on the new record—did I mention how lucky I feel yet?There is nothing like writing music, and see/hear it elevated by such incredible musicians bringing their own “magic” on it.
Love to have Joop back in the project; his guitars on ONIRIC METAL were mind blowing, imho! 🙏
