SHADRANE is the progressive/metal band-project of Vivien Lalu, Joop Wolters and the legendary brothers rhythm section of Matt and Gregg Bissonette (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai etc). From a vocal perspective SHADRANE makes use of different singers, according to the tracks needs with vocals coming from Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteen), Björn Jansson (Beyond Twilight) and Henrik Båth (Darkwater) along with some backing vocals from Martin LeMar (Lalu, Mekong Delta). Musically “TEMPORAL” is a blend of prog-metal (Temporal, She Writes), power-metal (Betrayal, Morpheus) and more pop driven rock (Rainy, Consider It) - yet Shadrane’s own personality shines through all the compositions. Lyrically the tracks don’t follow the story’s order; yet the songs are inspired by the concept/story, but they’re not telling every event in chronological order like a movie would do.
