COLD SHIVERS12.jpg

Of Shadows And Lights project originally started as a band in 2018 from an Angelo Pitone's idea in which music, lyrics and pictures are the poetry that tell the story of good and evil, of who we really are and what we really have inside as human being. It's about the hidden undertones of our souls: of shadows and lights. A concept greater than ourselves with infinite reading keys. Each of you can draw its own conclusions, listen to the music or reading the lyrics. That's exactly how it should be.

Latest single Poisoned Heart was released in May 12, 2022, is about injustices and lives taken from innocent children because of the outbursts of parents who are unworthy of being called such. This song is like a two-hour dramatic movie enclosed within three minutes of music. It's shocking, emotive, powerful, thought-provoking, sick like a toxic love. The outstanding vocal performance will unleash an unprecedented emotional rush, and it will make you feel shivers down your spine. Also, you can change your perspective on the lyrical theme and think of a divided family and a sense of abandonment brought on by war. It's up to you which reading key to use.

Angelo is currently working hard on new exciting music with the best quality possible. Then... keep your ears open!

There's no limit to your growth. The key is to start now.
