'A Time of Shadow' is Irish progressive rock band Dead Heroes Club's second album. The album is a tour de force of melody and power. The band have a wonderful sound and an identity all of their own, but the discerning listener can detect the Genesis and Pink Floyd influences. Vocalist Liam Campbell has a Peter Gabriel quality to his voice and sings with similar conviction. Some of the songs on the album are bordering on the epic: 'Theatre of the Absurd' and 'A Gathering of Crows' are extended songs which showcase the band's musicality, and the title-track, coming in at over 15 minutes long, is a moody, atmospheric and profoundly imaginative work that takes the album out on a high of power and emotion. Others are shorter pieces that offer explosive or reflective music in turn, but each song is driven by melody and emotion.
