The Walking Shadows / Press

“The Chicago music scene can surprise you. Tucked away on the show fliers bills you see posted in places like Myopic Books, a litany of bands-you’ve-never-heard-of are reaching out for the attention of the average concert-goer, who is usually only interested in the latest Pitchfork sensation or getting drunk to garage rock. There are few in the middle ground, actively seeking rare gems like The Walking Shadows, who are goth, glam, metal, and Shakespeare all rolled into one black package.”

“Goth/Industrial fans will enjoy the moody orchestral tone off the epic-sounding synths/keyboards by Mark Winston (also lead guitarist/vocalist of Dead Superheroes Orchestra) while Metal fans will enjoy the hardcore tone from the guitar-side of Shadows. However when together, this reviewer was blown away by the haunting poetic drama of love, pain and horror wrapped inside the energized melodies...”

“In the future, if Guitar Hero/Rock Band still exists, kids will be playing The Walking Shadows on that game. Maybe because when you’re in a room, immersed in multi-dimensional drum beats, conversational bass lines, scathing guitar solos, and chocolately dark, smooth vocals, you begin to think you’re sitting in on something that’s gonna be big.”
