Shadow Band Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Riding in on a cloud of smoke, psychedelic travelers Shadow Band sound more like a foggy dream of fantastical lands than any easily identifiable set of musical choices. Their patient but powerful sounds set in motion a series of refracting echoes, conjuring up images of medieval battles, blissed-out trips and the haze of a sleep-deprived commune of heads in a state of perpetual vibing. ... more

Track Name: Dragons in Disguise
come into my garden, you who shine so bright
the dark side is calling to you, 'rise, dragon rise'
flying saucer eyes
dragons in disguise
the blood of life, it runs for you
rise, dragon rise
seraphim survive

born into bondage baby
rise, dragon rise
drink from my sorrows' honey
seraphim survive
rise, dragon rise
dragons in disguise
Track Name: Kali Yuga Dirge
benighted one, drift on drift on
run river, run
run green river, run
benighted one, drift on drift on

behold the sun behind the sun

we ride upon a golden dawn

in the soft reign of love
let cleanse your wounds and heavy thought
for when the rain falls soft
no wrathful storm
no angry earth

we ride upon a golden dawn
Track Name: Queen Of Wands
queen of wands
o u hurt me so
queen of wands
wish i could let you go
but i can't keep you out of my head, queen of wands

is a darkness surrounding you?
its your darkness that binds me too
in the forest where you lay your head
all was lost
i was lost

did a snake slither into your ear?
see his venom welling in your eyes
have the bugs gathered in your mind?
have you lost your will to fight?
queen of wands, o i was wrong about you
queen of wands, for what you put me through
in the forest where you lay your head
all was lost
i was lost
all was lost
Track Name: Dragon's Breath
(((to be held in her loving wise ~ bewitching tides, bewitching tides)))

fatherking, how goes?
the foggy mountain chills
a slimy serpentine unfurls the darkness within
all the time searching, all the time searching
with lightning fingertips
shadows and shape shifts
the maiden she'll sing for us, the maiden she sings for us
and swift into the rock
for lorelei, my love
Track Name: Wanderer
your flowering is wonderous
be glowing
down by the river
misty and flowing
the sun shone on your face

a dress of blue and white
darkly shining eyes
behold the new day's light
and be glowing

dancer upon my soul
shake me from my tree
and be nourished
be glowing
Track Name: In The Clouds
unquiet mind, unquiet mind
be soothed
life in the clouds with you

your magic arrows weave
a loving spell for three
no other palace suits
life in the clouds with you)))
