about

I (Andreas) started to work on this demo in the late 90s (98/99 I think). I wanted to record and form a metal band with heavy but also melodic parts, keyboards and male and female vocals. Kind of like the 90s Cradle of Filth but slower, more death/goth/doom metal influenced.
I started to write a few songs and recorded them all alone. I asked a friend of mine, if he wanted to sing the clean vocals for a track and he joined the band. After the recordings we asked a school colleague who played bass and he joined aswell.


This demo was recorded by:
Andreas P. (vocals/guitars/orchestration/bass),
Michael P. (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: I am the Shadow Walker
Midnight
I offer thee my essence
touch me with you cold breath
embrace me with your darkness
and lead me into
Moonlight
the moon he shines so bright tonight
paralyzed by his beauty
I stand and watch the wonder
of daylight fading away

And so I wander through the silence
of the night and her embrace

How can it be I walk alone
through the darkness of this world
am I always dying
as the wind is crying
is there someone to find
I ask the voice in my mind
am I always hiding
as the light is fading

I am the shadow walker
no one ever saw my wicked face
no one knows that I’m alive
as I hide inside the shades
I am the shadow walker
my skin never kissed by the light
no one cares if I should die
as I wander through the night

I am the shadow walker
no one ever saw my wicked face
no one cares if I should die
ns I wander through the night…
by moonlight

Tell me goddess of the dark
is there something in my heart
I do not know, will never feel, will never be for real

How can it be I walk alone
through the darkness of this world
am I always dying
as the wind is crying
is there someone to find
I ask the voice in my mind
am I always hiding
as the light is fading

I am the shadow walker
no one ever saw my wicked face
no one knows that I’m alive
as I hide inside the shades

I am the shadow walker
my skin never kissed by the light
no one cares if I should die
as I wander through the night

I am the shadow walker
no one ever saw my wicked face
no one cares if I should die
as I wander through the night
Track Name: A dream of how all dies
I tried so hard I ever tried, till I began to realize that our love was just a lie and bound to die
You thought you would know me but you never knew, will never know, who I really am

I must have gone too far but now it’s you who passed the line, no scars were ever cured by time
Lay down to sleep and dream of me, dream of days gone by, dream of me and how all dies

I should have seen it long before, long before you made it die, long before you walked away
I should have known it long before, as I walk on through this night, as I long for no new day

Will it ever be the same?

Could I just put these feelings back to from where they come
To be free from this constant agony
Will you be there to hold my all the dark night long
To see me part from thee eternally
Might I just be the one who’s forever left alone
Just except the voices in my head
Would anybody care if tomorrow I was be gone

I carried the burden much too long, now I’m done, the cold wind whispers a silent song
Of love and hate, heaven and hell, a dying symphony and I feel death inside of me

I should have seen it long before, long before you made it die, long before you walked away
I should have known it long before, as I walk on through this night, as I long for no new day
Will it ever fade away?

Could I just put these feelings back to from where they come
To be free from this constant agony
Will you be there to hold my all the dark night long
To see me part from thee eternally
Might I just be the one who’s forever left alone
Just except the voices in my head
Would anybody care if tomorrow I was be gone

Could I just put these feelings back to from where they come
To be free from this constant agony
Will you be there to hold my all the dark night long
To see me part from thee eternally
Might I just be the one who’s forever left alone
Just except the voices in my head
Would anybody care if tomorrow I was be gone
Track Name: I drown in shadows
The ending of the day
Takes my mind to further ways
The coming of the night
Makes me come alive

But when you appear
My heart fills up with fear
And the tears in your eyes
Make me want to die

I drown in shadows, lost in time I found in darkness my pleasure
Here in the arms of this cold night I lie
I drown in shadows but I know my heart still stays with you
Here all alone in this dark night I cry

I try to hide from you
But there is nothing I can do
You haunt me in my mind
And every night

In my dreams you still appear
And spread this certain fear
I ever feel to you
And still I do

I drown in shadows, lost in time I found in darkness my pleasure
Here in the arms of this cold night I lie
I drown in shadows but I know my heart still stays with you
Here all alone in this dark night I cry
I drown in shadows, lost in time I found in darkness my pleasure
Here in the comfort of a grave I lie
I drown in shadows but I know my heart still stays with you
Here all alone in deepest fog I rot away
Track Name: In a cold winternight
As I wander through this damn icy cold
My thoughts travel beyond my flesh

I feel you, I smell you, I want you so close to me
My soul cries for you in grief

And I see you in the distance and I feel that you notice me
The closer you get, I realize I’ll be dead
The cold winds starts blowing and my mortal flesh starts dying
The day covered by the wings that this icy night spreads

In this cold winternight would you dare to hold me
In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast
In this cold winternight I grant you my life
As frost spreads it’s might, don’t let me, don’t let me die

As I wander with you by my side
My emotions on fire and I

I hold you, I kiss you, I want you to marry me
My heart cries for you in grief

And all flowers that once blossomed now covered by snow
The longer we walk the colder it grows
A cold winds stars blowing and I feel that I’m dying
The rivers stand still as my blood that once flowed

In this cold winternight would you dare to hold me
In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast
In this cold winternight I grant you my life
As frost spreads it’s might, don’t let me, don’t let me die

I resign, close my eyes, let me slip away and die
Blue is my flesh as I take my last breath
My wounds stopped to bleed and my veins stopped to feed
My heart that once beat just for you
I resign, close my eyes, let me slip away and die
Blue is my flesh as I take my last breath
My wounds stopped to bleed and my veins stopped to feed
My heart that once beat just for you

In this cold winternight would you dare to hold me
In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast
In this cold winternight I grant you my life
As frost spreads it’s might, please let me, I die
