With TRAPPED IN THE SHADOWS, Manimals has created a classic piece of metal that, while not flawless, still stands up with the icons of the genre. Like a cross between RAGE FOR ORDER-era Queensryche and PAINKILLER-era Priest, this is a band that deserves to be huge (but probably won't be, unfortunately). TRAPPED IN THE SHADOWS hasn't left my player since I bought it several weeks ago . . . and I'm hard to please when it comes to new metal bands. Great stuff, and highly recommended! I'll definitely be picking up the band's first album, THE DARKEST ROOM, very soon.
I would recommend this to a friend
