Boomkat Product Review:
"The Canadian ambient doom band Nadja returns with Radiance of Shadows, the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 'Touched' release. Radiance of Shadows has the feel of the super-saturated and dense recordings favoured by the likes of Fennesz and Tim Hecker but with the bite of metal. Nadja is one of the most respected projects outsider metal projects, with two previous releases on Alien8 Recordings, as well as Body Cage on Profound Lore and a number of limited edition offerings on labels such as Archive, Equation and Conspiracy. The album opens rather gently taking it's time to give birth to an amazing Isis-like riff which becomes completely washed out with Nadja's trademark wall of ambient noise. Just when you think it can't possibly get any louder or more saturated it begins to subside into another more subdued section of ambience and occasional riffing. This eventually gives way to a brutal tandem of guitar and drums that recalls early Swans."
