This opulent work thematically continues a story which was written for the Tyranny album which came out in 1998. With Acts III und IV, divided into 14 single chapters, Shadow Gallery explore the entire musical spectrum of the progressive metal genre - ranging from hard staccato guitars with doublebass thunderstorms to balladic and very emotional moments when Mike Baker sings together with guest vocalist Laura Jaeger.
The songs on Room V were composed in the typical Shadow Gallery manner: Gary Wehrkamp and his guitar mate Brendt Allman provided the artistic foundation on which bassist Carl Cadden-James and singer Mike Baker could realize their own ideas of melody and song lyrics. Room V was mastered by Jeff Glixman, known for his work with Black Sabbath, Gary Moore, Kansas, or Cinderella.
