Shad Shadows - MINIVIEW: Fix EP
Darkwave, Synthpop The Italian Industrial and Darkwave duo Shad Shadows has returned with a brand new EP titled Fix via Black Verb Records. If this is a band you are unfortunately unfamiliar with the record label describes them in six easy words, "2000 Industrial, 90's Soundtrack, 80's Mood." Starting with 'Electronic Brigade' I was thrust into a slow moving, wading, eerie sci-fi piece that echoed Luca Bandini's vocals like that on their 2015 record Minor Blues. 'Moon Bay' brought about their signature dreamy, haunted industrial hymns with much more crunchy percussion than I've experienced from them before. 'White Fall' and and the final track on the EP 'Colosseum' had a definite goth appeal with an absolute darkwave vibe splattered all across their surface. 

A good and short work by an Italian duo who know how to appreciate their influences while making a sound unique to their own. Give it up for Shad Shadows. The album is available in both digital and a limited cassette format, so better act fast before that's all gone.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
