The best kept secret in music

"Melodic Metal"

"The band differs from most in the hardcore genre in that it is melodic metal due mostly to schooled vocalist Verzino."

"The Sound Of CIS"

"Lyrically, they're right up there with Staind: rock music hard enough to kick you in the behind, yet combined with an almost sweet but firm tone to their message."

"For displaying writing ability beyond their years and motivating a capacity crowd for over an hour this band is a force to be reckoned with that shows true potential."

- Scot - TuneLab.Com


"It was a good to experience a local band that really has some powerful energy and confidence onstage with a huge captive, excited audience on the other side to link up with them."

Cast In Shadows creates a powerful sonic landscape - a place where diverse influences blend into a singular musical result. Driving and aggressive yet soaring in melody, a bright light exposes a deeper message of hope and the importance of truth for Cast In Shadows. Drawing on influences from Sevendust and Tool to Incubus and Pearl Jam, Cast In Shadows weave a collection of beautifully crafted songs that are the hallmark of this newly formed, yet long tempered, band.

The band quickly garnered a reputation for its live shows and was picked up by their label to place them in the studio to translate that emotion into what would become a powerful, cohesive first album.

The bands debut effort, an LP entitled In Your Eyes, by veteran producer Chris Pati (Columbia Records - Rhett Forrester, 4-Star Kerrang! and Massacre Records - Psychosis), is a standout representation of the bands undeniable intensity. In a remarkably short time, Cast In Shadows has become a must-see live band in the New York area as they prepare to tour nationally to support their debut.

Quasi-compulsive in nature, their prolific songwriting and work-ethic has seen them evolve in a very short time to a maturity level unique to a group of their chronological age. At the end of their time in the studio recording In Your Eyes, they possessed enough of a song surplus to record an additional two albums. This single-minded focus to the evolution of the band and the music will surely yield fans wherever their travels lead them.

Its a supremely personal album with the goal of communicating the efficacy of self-empowerment to our audience, says frontman Vinny Verzino. Ultimately, we hope that the passion that we feel for our music and lyrics translates to those that choose to listen.
