Shaded Moon Entertainment is an independent rock label, based in the village of Assendelft, The Netherlands. The focus of the company is hard rock, heavy metal, power metal, progressive rock/ metal and AOR, because we like these styles ourselves.
We started some years ago for the love of melodic rock music. The company started with band management. Bands like Gravedroid and Phyrus were under this management. We booked gigs, talked about the direction, financed recordings, did all the promotions and publicity and gave moral support. Later on we also released the promotional CDs of Gravedroid and Phyrus.
Under the Shaded Moon Entertainment banner we released the "Melodic Metal Worldwide Part I" CD, with 14 melodic metal bands from around the globe and the "Dreamend" album from Bosnian power metal band Symbolic. Unfortunately after that the activity halted. But in 2016 Shaded Moon Entertainent was started again.
This new start resulted in the long awaited CD release of the first solo album from ex-Kayak vocalist Edward Reekers. In 1980 CNR records released the "The Last Forest" album only on vinyl and casette and after that it was never released in other forms. Shaded Moon's owner David van Hartingsveldt expected some other label would reissue this album sooner or later. But when this still wasn't the case in 2016, he made the effort and contacted Edward and CNR. Original producer Stephen W Tayler (known for his works with o.a. Kate Bush and Brand X) remastered the old recordings and Edward wrote the liner notes.
The original album is accompanied by five bonus tracks, taken from singles Edward recorded for Polydor.
We like to release some more great music in the near future.
