Finnish Viitasaari based melodic death/doom band Shadecrown released their first single ‘The Awakening” from their upcoming third studio album Solitarian which is set to be released later this year via Inverse Records.
Songwriter Saku Tammelin comments: “The Awakening is a song about shame, repressed memories and the dark side of human nature. I think all of us have a dark side… it is just stronger in some people than others.”
