about

This was a tough one! This demo was finished somewhere in 2015 but the work on it started years before. After "Sculptured Angels" a lot changed, bandmembers went to study and to work, we tried out different music styles and it took a while until we decided to finally make Shadegrown a complete band. But that wasn't as easy. In my head this band had to be formed by two guitar players, a bass, a drummer, female vocals and a keyboarder (plus backing tracks for orchestration). In the years from when the first song was written (to give the musical direction of the band) we had three different singers, three guitar players (last one left the band before the recordings) and tried at least six different drummers that didn't fit (so drumcomputer again). In the end we decided to record all songs and then put the band on a pause.

This demo was recorded by:
Andreas P. (vocals/guitars/orchestration),
Andrew B. (bass),
Andrew F. (keyboards and piano)
Saskia M. (vocals)

about

Shadegrown Germany

Shadegrown, named after a song of the 1996 Sentenced Album Down, started in the late 90s as a one man band project.
With each demo new people joined the band. After 2015 it basically became a one man band again.
Currently I am working on rerecordings of the first four demos. Unreleased stuff from 2016 also exists. After that new material will follow!

Track Name: Angels call
instrumental
Track Name: Nothing at all
The life leaves slowly the eye
The last breath was taken just seconds ago
The pain reduces to a minimum
A minor ache remains hardly felt
Strange voices they call
Regret nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
Hell's demons they call
Leave with nothing at all

The last beat of my heart echoes in silence
The cold white light approaches in the distance
Hear Angels call
As darkness falls

The life leaves slowly the eye
The last breath was taken just seconds ago
The pain reduces to a minimum
A minor ache remains hardly felt
Strange voices they call
Regret nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
Hell's demons they call
Leave with nothing at all

The last drop of blood runs through my veins
A last thought of you and nothing remains
Hear Demons call
As darkness – darkness falls
Track Name: The awesome light
Who send us here?
What God we suffer from?
Whose Hell we have been bound to?

Who's holding all the answers
In secrecy kept safe?
Hiding it so brave

And while the sun begins to rise we walk out of the night
A new dawn ahead as skies turn red

We step out of the black night into the awesome light
Away from all the suffering
We step out of the black night into the awesome light
Away from all that's ever been
And so we go

Warm feels the air
On skin that’s been so cold
Over all the years

Bright seems the land
In eyes long kept in dark
As sunlight fills the heart

And while the sun begins to rise we walk out of the night
A new dawn ahead as skies turn red

We step out of the black night into the awesome light
Away from all the suffering
We step out of the black night into the awesome light
Away from all that's ever been
And so we go
Track Name: Love left with scars
And just for a second the whole world stood still
As you for a lifetime turned your back on me
And walked away

Trying to refrain that the pain will remain
A constant presence every day
A last freezing touch that couldn't change much
Was the last act so far before
Love broke apart

You left with countless memories
Although you meant the world to me
A last kiss for good as denying as it could
Like a bullet through my heart love left some memories
And surely many scars

And with you the world turned dark

The light that once shined, shined a last time and died
Like I died in the warmth of your arms
Swallow your sorrows and let them drown in your tears
The light that once shined, shined a last time and died
Like I died in the warmth of your arms
Through the whole night I think of the things I will never regain

The light shined and died and darkness remains
The light shined and died and darkness remains

You left with countless memories
A constant presence every day
A last kiss for good as denying as it could
Was the last act so far before
Love left with scars

And without you the world drowns in heavy rain
If only it could wash a way
The pain that remains
Track Name: Fall forever more
The night is dark
The night is cold
The night seems everlasting

The sky is black
Your heart feels dead
Are you forever lost in...

...the darkness of the abyss
The never ending storm
The pain of all creation
The twisted womb of Gehenna

A taste of the sweet blood
My love
Fall forever more
Into the dark

Your heart is dark
Your heart is cold
I watch it crumble as it slowly turns to stone

The world is black
As you drop dead
Gone and forever lost in...

...the darkness of the abyss
The all surrounding storm
The pain of all that's ever been
The twisted womb of Hell

A taste of the sweet blood
My love
Fall forever more

A taste of the sweet blood
My love
Fall forever more
Into the dark
Track Name: All the sadness of the world (2015)
All I saw was a scene of a desperate life
And pity told my heart to brake
All I felt was a pain I will always retain
And the scars will forever remain

She was young and yet so dead
And her eyes spoke al language of grief
Left by God and the cross around her neck
Stained a symbol of unfulfilled dreams

All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands

She left yet bereft of a physical death
To a place where her tortures will be healed
She knows where she goes she won’t be alone
And no one will miss her or mourn

Dry your tears little victim of life
Clean your face, wash away every trace
Walk right into the black shining light
And leave to a never known place

All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
Track Name: The cold breath of winter
So long is the way to the oblivion
Where they left us alone, cold
So far is the distance to the end of the world
Yours made of pure gold and ours of grey stone
Yours made of pure gold and ours of grey stone

The wind carries the breeze that will freeze the earth and all of its lands

The golden sky fades into the blackest night

Dark clouds assemble, nightmares arise
Demons awake under a pale... moon

Moonlight, my guide shine through the wildness
Of the woods, majestic, where darkness arises

We ride with the winds as the storm's to begin
Through the lightness of day and the darkness of night
With ravens aside to the end of our lives
As the cold breath of winter reaches from behind

And as the wind blows through the cold we reach the point of no return
Where light softly fades
And with all memories left behind we arise with the night
As the stars start to shine
Like Demons out of blazing hell we take our path

Moonlight, my guide shine through the wildness
Of the woods, majestic, where darkness arises

We ride with the winds as the storm's to begin
Through the lightness of day and the darkness of night
With ravens aside to the end of our lives
As the cold breath of winter reaches from behind

Through the tortures of day and the silence of night
The cold breath of winter reaches from behind
With the stars in sight to the end of our lives
The cold breath of winter reaches from behind

Storm winds may blow, the further we go

At the end of the day life ceases away
Track Name: Thousand memories
Summer is gone and left with thousand memories
Left me alone and I'll remain so for long

The chill of winter on the horizon
Paint the sky in grey as leaves turn red

Autumn is here and welcomes with thousand agonies
Grants me a home and I'll stay here a while

The sun sets cold on the horizon
Paint the sky in grey as leaves turn red

And in this state of melancholy
I watch the world's ground bleed
The transition from summer to winter
In short time will be complete
And the pain a thousand memories
Still haunt me while I sleep
The pain of thousand memories
Keeps torturing so deep

Summer is gone and left with thousand memories
Autumn is here and winter soon to come

And in this state of melancholy
I watch the world's ground bleed
The transition from summer to winter
In short time will be complete
And the pain a thousand memories
Still haunt me while I sleep
The pain of thousand memories
Keeps torturing so deep
Track Name: Through the dark is born a melody
instrumental
Track Name: Descendant of the stars
The great arrival of the storm
The sun has set
The day dead
The black of night reborn

The creepy-crawly of the night
The moon above
The stars in love
The world in dismal light

Tenderly gathers the mist around the ground
Embraces traceless everything without a sound

And through the dark is born a melody
Sung by a descendant of the stars
And with it's song we fall in love
And with it's song we fall in love

Note by note, tone by tone
We fall deeper into it's song

A serenade divine
The angelic voice of the night
A choir of darkness aside
Composer of life

And through the dark is born a melody
Sung by a descendant of the stars
And with it's song we fall in love
And with it's song we fall in love
Track Name: Everything is cold
I see all clouds are passing by
And cover every light
The rainy days been washed away
As winter comes its way

I feel the air is getting cold
And the sky emits the first flakes of snow
Soon everything is in white
Enlightening the night

The days are shorter
The nights stay longer

The eerie moon bedights the pale gray sky
The frozen crystals illuminate the winter countryside

Hide from the sky o eclipsed sun
The days are shorter
Shine under the the presence of the moon
The nights stay longer

The frozen land completely under snow
As far the eyes can see everything is cold

Hide from the sky o eclipsed sun
The days are shorter
Shine under the the presence of the moon
The nights stay longer

And through the never ending snow-path of this winter world
We walk hand in hand, side by side
And any distance, every storm we face with opened eyes
Though the land is cold, we are alive

Hide from the sky o eclipsed sun
Shine under the the presence of the moon

And through the never ending snow-path of this winter world
We walk hand in hand, side by side
And any distance, every storm we face with opened eyes
Though the land is cold, we are alive
Track Name: 89 days of winter
The icy cold begins to itch
As the betrayed heart once more been stabbed by love
Everything is cold...
Everything is cold...

...and dark are the days as if night
All that we ever felt inside left behind to die

89 cold days of winter
Blackest sky of 89 nights
2136 hours of darkness
Though the ground shines bright

89 cold days of winter
Blackest sky of 89 nights
2136 hours of darkness
Though the ground shines...

Tangled she falls into my arms
As she whispers words of endless love the chilling air unfolds and
Everything is cold...
Everything is cold...

...and dark are the days as if night
All that we ever felt inside left behind to die
(Everything is) Cold and dark are the days as if night
All that we ever felt inside left behind to die

89 cold days of winter
Blackest sky of 89 nights
2136 hours of darkness
Though the ground shines bright

89 cold days of winter
Blackest sky of 89 nights
Track Name: Displaced
Stay in tears, stay aside
Stay around and I'll stay all night
Love does hurt, I do not
Love's absurd as I divert
I saw you falling from the sky
I saw a thousand of yours die

Stay in tears, stay aside
Stay around and I'll stay all night
I'll wake you up, coddle you up
Erase your thoughts of a loving god
I saw you dropping from the sky
I heard a thousand of yours cry

Hold me close
Warm my inner cold and let me
Free my soul
Free my mind from the betrayer god

God displaced your presence from the sky
Love keeps me here safe by your side
God displaced your presence from the sky
Love keeps me here safe by your side
All through the night...

I saw you falling from the sky
I saw a thousand of yours die

Hold me close
Warm my inner cold and let me
Free my soul
Free my mind from the betrayer...

Hold me close (I'll hold you close)
Warm my inner cold and let me
Free my soul (Free your soul)
Free my mind from the betrayer god

God displaced your presence from the sky
Love keeps me here safe by your side
God displaced your presence from the sky
Love keeps me here safe by your side
All through the night...
Track Name: Never said
The sweetest of moments
Go by just like seconds
In the darkest of all hours
Life seems slow

In the coldest of our moments
Your lips are like freezing
In the night side of day
Love seems to fade

I still hear the things that you never said
Echoing inside my head
Just another day

I still hear the things that you never said
Echoing inside my head
Just another day

I still hear the things that you never said
Echoing inside my head
Just another day
Track Name: In sorrow
On the white mountain skyline
I stand alone
I breathe the cold air
Passed the dark winter season
On my own
Left my heart back there

And through the mist there's a fire burning bright catching my eyes
And all they see is you, all they always search for is you
Since you passed away, since you left me here, alone

On the white mountain skyline
I stand alone
I breathe the cold air
The wind still whispers
Your name up here
In sorrow

The light that once was I
Vanished and slowly died
Carried off this world and never to return
The last tears hit the snow
So long ago and froze
As memories remain

Oh destiny what brought you upon me?
Oh destiny what brought you upon me?
Track Name: The saddest song
The memories won't fade away
Torturing inside every minute
That passes on so slowly since your gone
All said and done
Pain remains
The aching of a bleeding heart is
All that stays the same
It always ends the same

Listen to the
The saddest song
That reminds us of the tortures we've been
Carrying on
Through the years so cold and still we
Walk along
The shattered dreams that lie besides
The broken parts
Of the road we have to walk alone

Until we're dead and gone

The tragedies won't fade away
Calling from the inside every day
That leaves us lonely in the mass of broken hearts
All said and done
Pain remains
The aching of a bleeding heart is
All that stays the same
It always ends the same
And so we sing

The saddest song...

The saddest song
That reminds us of the tortures we've been
Carrying on
Through the years so cold and still we
Walk along
The shattered dreams that lie besides
The broken parts
Of the road we have to walk alone

Until we're dead and gone
