More information: Specially priced 2 CD set of the first 2 albums by progressive rock band Shadow Gallery. "Shadow Gallery" (1992) and "Carved In Stone".
Shadow Gallery made a name for themselves during the early 1990s by helping to create and expand the progressive metal scene. Citing the influence of Queensryche, Rush, Pink Floyd, Genesis and Yes, Shadow Gallery put as much emphasis on the keyboard as they do on their blistering guitar work. Another stand out is the lead vocals of the late Mike Baker and the wonderful vocal harmonies from the rest of the band.
The debut album includes the epic 17-minute "The Queen of the City of Ice". The follow-up, "Carved In Stone", builds upon the composition and production skills of the first album to perfect the Shadow Gallery sound. The piano takes lead on instrumental segues which transition between songs, vocal harmonies and guitars punctuate the thought provoking lyrics throughout. The album concludes with the 22-minute "Ghostship," which gives Shadow Gallery a chance to shine as musicians.
