'Music is our weapon, for people to use any way they can...to relate to, be empowered by, or in any way to be enlightened.' Cast in Shadows derived their name from Plato's 'Allegory of the Cave', which shows a parallel between ancient knowledge and modern misconception. They create a powerful sonic landscape- a place where diverse influences blend into a singular musical result which is driving and aggressive, yet soaring in melody.
