PUSH BOUNDARIES!

SHADOW EDEN is the guitar driven all instrumental power trio hailing from New York, propelled to the forefront of their genre by sheer musical prowess & determination.

IGNITE THE SENSES!

SHADOW EDEN'S 2015 offering quickly became a CMJ Top 10 favorite. The band’s musical pedigree has earned them endorsements from GJ2 GUITARS, MORLEY PEDALS, HARTKE BASS AMPLIFIERS and ISTANBUL MEHMET CYMBALS along with consecutive invites to every NAMM Convention since 2011. And nothing says more about a band than STANDING ROOM ONLY PERFORMANCES. Seeing is believing, so check out the photos from our live shows !!!

DAZZLE WITH VIRTUOSITY!

Talk is cheap, unless of course you're the talk of the town:

"Great stuff from some talented cats..."- DON JAMIESON/THAT METAL SHOW~

"... virtuoso playing with strong melodic compositional content . Dave manages to check all the boxes nicely as far as many of the shred guitar food groups are concerned ( fast alternate picked passages, two-hand tapping, arpeggio play , etc.) but it`s his phrasing, inflection and melodic sense that really shine.... - awesome!" ~ JOE STUMP ~

"I've always loved David Mercado's playing ... a guitarist who is really defining his own style. Shades of Satriani meets Coltrane played with an edgy New York attitude are what I'm hearing ..... A deep groove underneath balance the honest musicianship on top!....." ~ GUITAR WORLD /RON ZABROCKI~

"..Ferocious in your face shred! ..." ~ ROB BALDUCCI ~

"Mercado has assembled the perfect accompaniment of musicians to not only support his compositions but also complement and showcase each individual talent within the confines of each song. .." ~ HARD ROCK HAVEN ~

"Dave Mercado’s ...much more than just a regular guitar demonstration ....he proves that he is like Guitar Gods such as Joe Stump, Joe Satriani, James Byrd, Dario Lorina, Chris Broderick, Vinnie Moore, Rusty Cooley, Richie Kotzen.... “I'm convinced Dave Mercado is a world class guitarist – magical tricks are hidden deep within his fingertips….” ~ METAL TO INFINITY ~

"Shadow Eden combine elements of progressive rock, fusion and guitar-driven metal into well structured, highly musical, and very listenable tunes. Guitarwise Dave Mercado shows a great diverse range of styles in his playing as well as some killer take-no-prisoners technique. Their debut record will certainly appeal to a wide range of fans that enjoy virtuosic, guitar-driven music...." ~ SHRED ACADEMY ~"

"Perpetual Motion is a crazy fretfest. This stuff is madness...... with Mercado's fingers seemingly made of liquid mercury.... " ~ JOHN WILCOX/ PROGSHEET ~"

"this CD would be the perfect Soundtrack for your snowboarding, skateboarding or even mountain biking adventures!...” ~BASS MUSICIAN MAGAZINE ~

“…fast guitar work showing the precision and speed of Dave Mercado's fingers…When you listen closely you sometimes recognize Al DiMeola…...a perfectly balanced album where shred master Dave ... with veteran Randy Coven, resulting in strong soloing from both sides and a lot of testosterone. In short; music with big balls!!!...I think Shadow Eden will find its way to all guitar devotees….” ~ BACKGROUND MAGAZINE ~
