After an interesting intro with a bit of electronica, the rest is not much of a surprise. Mostly a checklist of Swedish death metal, but it is done well. The tempo is usually somewhere in the middle; you know, the headbanging type. The songs are fairly complex and the sound is nearly flawless. The dominant style would be something thrashy and rhythmical with a bit of industrial, and if you are in the mood, Shadows of Light will be mildly numbing and a bit hypnotic. However, after you have heard all the tasty solos, countless staccatos and growls, and all the riffs and licks, there will not be much left, as the whole affair is not really memorable. No songs standing out and very few riffs that will make you go "ooohhh". Or adrenalin parts. Or emotions, or originality, unless you pay attention to the lyrics, which deal with quite a few real world - and less real - issues that you could even identify with.
So, with a bit of effort, you will find something on Shadows of Light for yourself. But if you have heard way too many melodic death metal albums you will simply say this is a good one, be glad that you have it, but probably not listen to it too many times.
