To coincidence with the release of Shadowland’s first ever DVD - "Edge of Night", Metal Mind Productions will release “Cautionary Tales”, a box featuring the DVD, as well as the re-mastered re-releases of their three studio albums (unavailable for a very long time). Packed with bonus tracks and features, this special limited edition box set provides the complete Shadowland experience!

Disk 1: DVD of the show at Wyspiański Theatre in Katowice, Poland plus bonus DVD footage from gig in Holland
Disk 2/3: Sound track CDs from Katowice show
Disk 4: “Ring of Roses” - re-mastered studio album plus three bonus tracks
Disk 5: “Through The Looking Glass” - re-mastered studio album plus bonus tracks
Disk 6: “Mad as a Hatter” - re-mastered studio album plus two live tracks from recent tour
 

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. The band recorded three albums so far: "Ring of Roses" (1992), "Through the Looking Glass" (1994) and "Mad as a Hatter" (1996), their third studio 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 favorite tracks from their three previous 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" (due in July).

Metal Mind Productions plans to release "Cautionary Tales" on 6th July in Europe and 11th August in USA (via MVD). Limited to numbered 1000 copies! Full details to be revealed soon!

It never ceases to amaze me how these groups manage to keep back some extra material that can then be released at some future date, however with remastered versions of all three, that alone would whet the appetite, As Clepsydra stated - I'll have to start saving the pennies...
