The idea that would become Prograssive Metal band Shadow Image was formed by brothers Chris and Tom Spadafora in 2001. Influenced from the likes of Symphony X, Dream Theater, Spiral Architect, and Fates Warning, each member is a true lover of music, influenced not only by their love for metal, but also styles ranging from jazz to the classics bringing on anindividual character to the songs and allow each track to be distinguishable from the next.
To date, the act has performed with quite a few local and national groups within the tri-state area, including Symphony X. Under the line-up of Tom Spadafora (guitars), Jon Roberts (keybo ards), Ed Faust (drums), Anthony Cross (vocals) the act looks forward to the future. A Bass player has yet to be announced.
