SHADOWS FALL - New album debuts at #20 on US Billboard Charts

"The War Within", SHADOWS FALL's highly anticipated new album has hit the US Billboard Top 200 Charts on the amazing position #20 with 39,251 sold copies in the first week (!) after release. This is the highest first-week SoundScan and Billboard Chart entry of a Century Media artist ever! The leaders of the "New Wave Of American Heavy Metal" finally harvest the progenies of their hard work and managed to outsell their genre-brothers Killswitch Engage, Atreyu and Lamb Of God in their respective debut week. And this is only a first taster of great things to follow for "The War Within"!

"The War Inside" was recorded once again with the band's long-term producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, etc.) at Planet Z Studios and its first pressing of the European version comes as strictly limited Digipak edition, packaged with a bonus DVD featuring a video for "Stepping Outside the Circle" from the previous album "The Art of Balance", two live videos, guitar lessons with Matt Bachand and Jon Donais and a drum lesson with Jason Bittner. Be quick with getting this one added to your classy collection! An LP version of the release is available as well. After the currently ongoing North American headlining tour with Candiria, All That Remains and Full Blown Chaos, SHADOWS FALL will embark on a massive co-headlining North American tour alongside Damageplan and label-mates The Haunted. They will return to good old Europe in early 2005, so watch out for dates and make sure you don't miss them! For further info, please visit or the band's official website:
