Forest of Shadows was founded as a solo-project in the autumn of 1997 by Niclas Frohagen. After having recorded the demo "the silent cry", multi-instrumentalist Micce Andersson joined the band.
Together they reinterpreted and polished up the old material which ended up on This turned out to be a winning concept and for a couple of weeks some of the songs dominated the metal charts. The english company "rage of achilles" (@cult of luna, mistress) had noted this and offered the band a deal. In 2001 the mCD "where dreams turn to dust" was released and soon afterwards the work on a full-length album began. During its production Niclas and Micce started drifting apart due ro musical indifferences and Niclas finished the album, later on titled "departure", on his own. As if the separation wasn't bad enough "rage of achilles" went out of business just as the album was finished. The record deal was handed over to finnish label "firedoom" who not only released the album but also offered a deal for yet another album. This time things went more smooth and in 2008, after 3 years of slow progression, the album "six waves of woe" was finished.
Then there was silence.
Most people who followed the band thought it had ceased to exist but really the work on the next album was happening all the time although at a very slow pace. 9 years later after even more issues with record labels "Among the Dormant Watchers" was released by "Inverse Records".
