3 stars US quartet SHADOW MERCHANT was formed back in 2007, and honed their craft a bit before hitting the studio to record any music with a good handful of concerts to their name following their initial formative phase. "The Tunnel" is their debut album, self-released in 2014.

Harder-edged progressive rock with a liberal amount of subtle inclusions of '70s classic hard rock is the name of the game for this US band. Those with an affection for late '70s and early '80s Rush should probably be the ones to feel most compelled to give this production a spin, and I rather suspect that those who enjoyed the music of a band like Triumph might also hear the charm of this production. While not quite what I'd describe as the finished article this is a band exploring an interesting variety of progressive rock, and I'd advise to check out the longer tracks towards the end of this CD to get the most favorable first impression.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
