Shadow Rising cover

Shadow Rising is an album by Soundestiny that was released in 2004.

It was inspired by The Lord of the Rings and was the band's first album. The music was written by Darryl Grant Potter and Michael Bohl; lyrics were by Darryl Grant Potter. After two more albums – Journey Through Love in 2006, and All that Glitters in 2009, Soundestiny released the follow-up LOTR-inspired album – Winds of Change in 2010. The band then planned to return to the studio to record another folk rock album of music inspired by The Hobbit. The albums Shadow Rising and Winds of Change together form a 25 song rock opera or rock musical titled RingLord. This rock musical was inspired by The Lord of the Rings only. Throughout the song lyrics, there are no mentions of any LOTR characters such as Gandalf or Aragorn, nor of Middle-earth place names like Rivendell or Lothlorien.
