Featuring members from Elvenking, Evenoire, and Sound Storm, Italy’s SHADYGROVE’s debut album “In The Heart of Scarlet Wood” is now available via Rockshots Records as of April 6th. Fans of Blackmore’s Night and Loreena McKennitt will find much to love on this debut album with its acoustic heaviness being truly original and special. SHADYGROVE make music as fresh as tomorrow’s dawn.

“folk, ethnic, acoustic Celtic pop. We are trying to bring the popular music of our regions, mixed with Celtic and Medieval music, to a more modern view without altering its soul. We write very evocative songs to guide the listener on a journey to where nature still rules.” says violinist Fabio ‘Lethien’ Polo.

Vocalist Lisy Stefanoni adds:

“We love the different styles of folk music and the various approaches of the main musicians. We also love the Celtic music. In the metal genre, folk metal inspires us the most. We listen to bands like Eluveitie, In Extremo, also symphonic projects like Ayreon and The Gentle Storm. Those who love folk-metal will certainly appreciate our songs because we all come from that musical background. We take our fans on a journey to a place where myths are real and there is evidence of the magic forces of our planet. In this world the listener can meet legendary creatures walking into enchanted landscapes or see ancient rituals happening.”

“Shadygrove’s new album “In The Heart Of Scarlet Wood” is a love letter to the folk genre.” – Forged In Steel

“In The Heart of Scarlet Wood always manages to slap a smile on my face. Shadygrove concocted a light-filled, yet earthy set of folk-laden, but still slightly rocky tracks. Flavored with medieval and Celtic bits and pieces. And all that framed in a land of legends and mystique that kind of fits with the background of these folks. All exquisitely played out with nicely sounding refrains that just feel like a folk version of what we commonly find in many Power Metal outfits.” – Rock Music Raider
