Emerging from Subliminal’s shadow, Yoav Eliasi, better known as “The Shadow” drops his first solo album. When The Shadow first started performing, he was an active commander in the Israeli Defense Forces, so had to hide his identity while performing by hiding his face in the shadows of a baseball cap, hence the stage name.
The Shadow was prominently featured on Subliminal’s breakout hit album “The Light from Zion” and then shared top billing on Subliminal’s next album “The Light and The Shadow.” The cover of this album is a take off of the iconic muddy fist cover of that “The Light and the Shadow.”
Highlights from this album include his collaborations with Subliminal “The Last Zionist” and “Out of Focus” as well as “Give This Time,” the collaboration with fellow TACT member Sivan. The sleeper from the album is the very moving “Shadow of Death” featuring Israeli rockers Synergia. The video for this song was shot in Sderot, a totally civilian town which had been under continual rocket attack for years..
This collection includes YouTube rips of the four videos from the album. The video for “Shadow of Death” includes subtitles in English.
