Metal Mind is active in the DVD department these days, press release below here :-)

------------------------------------------

Shadowland - a British neo-progressive rock band originally formed in the 1990s, by Clive Nolan (Arena, Pendragon, Caamora) and Karl Groom (Threshold).
 
The band's music tends towards the ‘songy’ side of progressive rock, while retaining its melodic and emotional intensity. They have developed a style that is both complex and easy listening. 1992 saw the release of their first album, "Ring of Roses". This was followed by the successful "Lurv Ambassadors" tour alongside another emerging band, Jadis. In 1994 they released their second album, "Through the Looking Glass", and continued touring, to great acclaim. Due to excellent sales, a short tour in Japan was even considered. 1996 saw the release of "Mad as a Hatter", their third studio album. No tour accompanied the release of this album. Sadly, due to the onset of other commitments, Shadowland took a lengthy break from recording and performing between 1996 and 2008.
 
Late in 2008 Nolan announced that Shadowland would be reforming for a tour in early 2009. Mark Westwood (Caamora, Neo) replaced Ian Salmon on the bass in this 2009 incarnation, but the rest of the original line-up from the 90's remained unchanged. The tour promoted a "best of" album entitled "A Matter of Perspective", featuring the band's favourite tracks from their three previous, now unavailable, albums as well as some new material. During the tour, Shadowland also visited Poland. They played at the famous Wyspiański Theatre during the first edition of the progressive rock festival ProgRock 2009. The band’s performance was recorded and will be released on their forthcoming DVD entitled "Edge of Night".

Metal Mind Productions plans to release "Edge of Night" in July. DVD will be available in 3 different formats: DVD, limited DVD+2CD edition, including 2 bonus audio CDs with songs recorded during the gig at the theatre, and 2CD digipak (limited to 1000 copies). Full info to follow soon!

I was there that night and they were incredibly special to see live. This should be a really good package to have in your collection as far as I'm concerned.

It was amazing to think that the band had not been a functioning unit for more than a decade and yet when they hit the stage, they sounded fresh, hungry and incredibly tight.

More power to Shadowland.

Clive Nolan says: “It was great to go back out on tour with Shadowland after a 13 year  break. It felt very comfortable playing those old songs again, and exciting to have a bit of new material as well. Playing the Concert at the Wyspianski Theatre in Katowice was a great opportunity to film the band, and the audience made the evening a very special experience. Playing with Shadowland again brought back some great feelings for us in the band, so we'll be out on tour again early next year... ready to promote our new DVD and Boxset!”
 
“Edge Of Night” DVD also features an interview with Clive Nolan and Karl Groom, bonus live footage “Shadowland Live in Holland 2009”, photo gallery, desktop images, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and more!
