History Edit

Shadow Puncher formed in 2016, formed by Max Kevin Ølstøren, and began to release demos through SoundCloud.[1] In 2017, the project released three different EPs - The Path of Challenges, The Throne of Justice and Love, and No Despair - which all came out independently. The EPs were only released through SoundCloud and YouTube.

On October 13, 2017, the project was announced to be signed to Nosral Recordings, a subsidiary of Rottweiler Records formed by Mike Larson of Frost Like Ashes.[2][3] In 2018, the band announced the recording of their fourth EP, which would self-titled.[4][5] Before the EP was released, a lyric video for "Shekinah" was released.[6] The EP was released on February 24, 2018. The EP produced by Luke Dinan of Children of Wrath and DinaSound Productions, which gave the EP great production value.[4][5] The EP received mixed to positive reviews. The project and label announced on August 20, 2018, the band would be releasing a compilation album of all three of the independent titled One Path to the Heavenly Kingdom, which would also feature a new song. The project is currently working on several new releases, including a full-length album, a Cannibal Corpse, alongside Symphony of Heaven, a new track for a compilation coming out through The Bearded Dragon Productions and Love Your Enemies Records, a Christmas cover coming out through The Bearded Dragon Productions and Rottweiler Records, and will be providing Vocals on some tracks for Timōrātus.[7] The band also announced a new side-project called Tunge Byrder.[8]
