Shadowflag released their third studio album, entitled 'The Delusion Machine' on June 23rd. This release sees the band explore the terrifying concept that the human species is essentially without purpose. The album is highly contemporary and of the greatest relevance in a world where emptiness at the centre of existence is becoming increasingly apparent. 'The Delusion Machine' is a journey through stark, darkly intelligent soundscapes filled with futility and despair yet also holding some hope and promise.

'The Delusion Machine' features Anil Carrier (Anaal Nathrakh live) on drums and is mixed and mastered at Hellfire Studios by Ajeet Gill (Memoriam, Sacrilege, Hellbastard).

'This album is a logical step from where we left off on 'The White Grave'. It's certainly darker in its themes and possibly slightly heavier in its tone - but it's still injected with the groove and spoken word that we embrace so much. We are very much looking forward to unleashing it on the world.' JJ Flames.


'Good production, good catchy hooks and brutal with melody' - WORT FM Mosh Pit

'The dark melodic core of the song has the kind of grandeur and sweep that builds a sense of dramatic tension, though it’s also a hard-driving and ferocious affair, with a rhythmic pulse that’s almost industrial in its compulsiveness. And those interesting and poetic lyrics are expressed with a cold and tyrannical savagery that suits their bleakness.' - No Clean Singing

'Great Record. 9/10' - Eclipse Metallico Radio Show

'...if you are looking for something that is different, you should check out this album. 8/10' – Occult Black Metalzine

'...the feeling of polished, assured and retro-mindedness suffuses every phrase and pore of this one.' – Third Eye Cinema

'It's fucking glorious!!!!!!' - Jim Beerman (Total Rock)
