West Hartford, CT symphonic deathcore outfit, Shadow of Intent, have teamed up with the awesome folks at Metal Injection to premiere their lyric video for an all new track entitled ‘The Catacombs.’ The brand new track, which features guest vocal performances from Jason Evans (Ingested) and Dickie Allen (Infant Annihilator) is taken from their forthcoming highly anticipated, absolutely crushing sophomore album, ‘Reclaimer‘, which is set to be released on April 28, 2017.
The band had the following to say about the new track:
“We stepped out of our comfort zone a bit for this song. This is the first song we’ve written that’s not focusing on melody or technicality, but rather heaviness and energy, all while trying to keep it ‘us.’ We tried to make every song on Reclaimer have a different approach and feel, rather than having every song on the album blend together. We also had the pleasure of featuring a couple friends of ours on this album, and for this track in particular both Jason and Dickie performed excellently.“

Shadow of Intent is a Halo inspired band that initially began as a two man project comprised of vocalist Ben Duerr and multi-instrumentalist/producer Chris Wiseman, and released an EP entitled ‘Inferi Sententia‘ in July of 2014. The pair followed up the EP with their debut full length album, ‘Primordial,’ in January of 2016, which coupled with a steady stream of vocal and guitar based play through video clips, helped expand both their reach and their fan base by the tens of thousands. Shadow Of Intent was also the 2016 Readers Choice Breakout Band of the Year on Chugcore.net.
Moving into 2017, the band has grown from a two piece into a fully functioning tour ready unit, with Ben and Chris welcoming Federico Zuccarelli (Guitar), Keith Kohlhepp (Bass) and Matt Kohanowski (Drums) to the fold.
What the media has to say about Shadow of Intent:
“Shadow of Intent take the more tech-death oriented sides of deathcore and bring back big keyboards and choirs to a concept album about the Halo series, which is what makes them unique. The mix of elements the band take from all sorts of their influences makes their sound quite diverse… The fast vocal delivery of Archspire, the staccato riffing of Within the Ruins, melodic trem picking like The Black Dahlia Murder… Shadow of Intent are a shining star in an area of the sky that is getting increasingly darker. Epic, progressive and technical, Primordial is a refreshing and thoroughly enjoyable take on deathcore/death metal.
” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
“Primordial is a comprehensive experience that demands to be heard in full. From its subtle beginning to its cataclysmic conclusion, Shadow of Intent’s epic full length release is a comprehensive display of flesh-shredding aggression and skull-shattering technicality…
