Staff review by

Wuthering Heights is a special band unfortunately not so famous. But I think that the new release of these Danish guys, "The Shadow Cabinet", will probably help them to get all the recognition that they deserve (and believe me, they deserve it!). With an amazing and unconventional Metal, the Danish combo is one of the few bands of the Metal scene which is still able to give a music that you'll never be able to listen to except… on their own CDs. When I have to add too, that "The Shadow Cabinet" is without any doubt the best release of the band, I just think that you'll not have the right to miss this album…
