Chicago, IL (PRWeb UK) May 12, 2010
Hailing from the great city of Chicago, Xhadow (pronounced Shadow) releases his debut album "Trials & Revelations" in the UK. Concept albums in Hip-Hop these days are incredibly rare. With his first release, Xhadow unveils an incredibly passionate and intense album based on the search and fight for freedom.
Chicago has produced many unique and influential artists over the years. Kanye West, Common, Lupe Fiasco and Twista are a few that have helped set that standard recently. Although new in the game, Xhadow definitely has something new to bring to the table.
Unlike many artists today, Xhadow has the ability to bring the listener to his world by exposing the positive and negative aspects of his life. The, "Trials and Revelations" experience is relevant to all because it deals with the daily battle between good, evil and the choices we make in life.
A truly heartfelt album, Xhadow paints a dark image of society but balances his anger with hope through songs like, "Heaven's Watching" and, "One More Time". The lead single, "Hold On" is a strong example of his intensity on the mic. The song has fierce lyrics with an almost trance like groove that's infectious. During live shows, his energy only grows stronger. The video for, "Hold On" is currently playing across the United States.
Xhadow was born in 1981 and raised in an abusive family. Leaving his home at 18, he has stayed in shelters, motels and has even been homeless on multiple occasions. To cope with his troubles, he wrote poetry. His love for Hip-Hop led him to writing rhymes.
With respect and dedication to the art-form, he presents to the listener a vivid portrayal of the beautiful struggle and his burning desire to experience a better life.
Xhadow has started gaining the media's attention with his featured bio in Boston's Hiphop Weekly magazine. A tour in the UK has been scheduled for the summer. Look forward to seeing Xhadow at various music festivals and clubs around Europe. It's time for the UK to hear what all the fuss is about. B.M.T Records presents: Xhadow Trials & Revelations.
