Shadow Project was a deathrock band formed in 1987. Its members included Rozz Williams, Eva O and Paris Sadonis. The band was named after a study of the effects of nuclear bombs in Hiroshima. Shadow Project gave its first performance in San Francisco in 1987, but didn't really maintain much of a profile until Williams and Eva O returned to Los Angeles in 1990. Once there, they recruited keyboardist Paris Sadonis, Super Heroines bassist Jill Emery, and drummer Tom Morgan.
Centered around Williams and Eva O, Shadow Project grew to share some of the supporting personnel from the alternate version of Christian Death: Johann Schumann on bass and David Glass on drums, which Williams revived concurrently beginning in the late 1980s.
