SHADOW GALLERY.

Sad news (November 2008):
It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce the passing of Shadow Gallery vocalist, Michael A. Baker. Mike suffered a heart attack, Wednesday afternoon, October 29th, 2008. He was 45 years old.

Mike was a founding member of Shadow Gallery and for the past 16 years, helped shape the sound of the band with his magical voice. Additionally, he made many appearances on rock records around the world. Those who knew him best were moved by his gentle spirit, sincere kindness , fun nature and passion for both music and sports. He was a warrior in the studio, a true professional. Mike was our friend, our singer and our brother. We loved him and will miss him enormously, but he will always be remembered in our hearts and through his music."



Shadow Gallery is an American six-piece who have been releasing records since 1992. They play some metal symfo with links to Tony Levin's Liquid Tension-project and Queensriche. Shadow Gallery's third album, called Tyranny ('98) should be one of theire best efforts:

Mike Baker - vocals,
Carl Cadden-James - vocals & guitars,
Chris Ingles - keyboard,
Gary Wehrkamp - guitar, keyboards & vocals,
D.C. Cooper - guest vocals,
James Labrie, Dream Theater's vocalist,
Laura Jaeger - vocals,
Paul Chou - violin.

Legacy is from 2001. The album has six tracks, ranging in length from the five minute title track to the thirty-four minute First Light, although it must be said that First Light proper is "only" twenty three minutes long, with an extra piece of music tucked on at the end.

 

Room V ('05).
Musicians:

Gary Wehrkamp - Guitar, Keyboards, Piano, Vocals
Carl Cadden-James - Bass, Flute, Vocals
Mike Baker - Lead Vocals
Brendt Allmann - Guitar, Vocals
Chris Ingles - Piano, Keyboards
Joe Nevolo - Drums
Arjen Lucassen - Guitar.

The new album will be called Digital Ghosts(09). The album will be release in Europe on October 23th and America on November 3rd on the InsideOut label.
