"We're heading towards the end of the year and with that said we wanted everyone to take a look at the entire label in a snapshot. 2013 has been our most successful year to date. We've more releases than we've ever done and extremely happy working with such talented bands. We've put out some really cool lost gems and also new releases with some of the best bands within their genre. 2013 has brought everyone 22 amazing albums and when we look back, we're not sure how we're going to top this year, but below you can have a peak as to what's coming early in 2014."

Check Out Shadow Kingdom Records Releases from 2013:
COVEN - Destiny of the Gods
Amazing Doom/Punk/Heavy Metal. There is no other band on the planet that sounds remotely close to them. They've created their own genre.
FUNERAL CIRCLE - Funeral Circle
Canadian Epic Doom Metal that will capture fans of Candlemass, Black Sabbath, Cirith Ungol. The vocals are mix of different styles which make it sound unique and amazing.
LOST BREED - Save Yourself & The Evil in You and Me (sold individually)
Wino / The Obsessed- inspired Doom Rock that featured Wino himself at one point. Fans of Saint Vitus, Soundgarden, The Obsessed, etc will dig this. This sounds more like Maryland Doom Metal, than their New York roots would suggest.
THE MEZMERIST - The Innocent, The Forsaken, The Guilty
The most insane heavy metal find of all time. Besides a handful of people knowing, who would have guessed we could find a band with Bill Ward playing drums on it? Fans of King Diamond, Cirith Ungol, and Frank Marino take notice. Psychedelic Metal with the most famous and influential drummer in metal!
NIGHT DEMON - Night Demon
Fantastic, fun and energetic US Metal band that lives and breathes the N.W.O.B.H.M. If you love anything from that era, don't miss out on Night Demon. For fans of Iron Maiden, Diamond Head, Raven, etc.
SINISTER REALM - World of Evil
Another incredible-sounding, pure Heavy Metal album from this amazingly consistent band. You cannot find one bad review of any of their albums anywhere. If you like 80s Heavy Metal, Sinister Realm does it better than most of the Traditional Metal bands did back then.
THE VEIN - Scouring the Wreckage of Time
Jaw-dropping Death/Doom Metal featuring members of Altar of Oblivion. Imagine the same massive tones of AoO churning out 90s-styled, death-laden Doom and there you have it! Quality all the way.
Also released in 2013 were newalbums, re-releases, and unearthed gems from CORSAIR, CARDINALS FOLLY, MANILLA ROAD, REVELATION, DARK QUARTERER, BOLDER DAMN, DECEPTOR, and PAGAN ALTAR. Visit the links below for more info.www.shadowkingdomrecords.com
