Clan of Xymox, also known as simply Xymox, are a Dutch rock band formed in 1981. Clan Of Xymox featured a trio of songwriters – Pieter Nooten, Ronny Moorings and Anka Wolbert – and gained success in the 1980s, releasing their first two albums on a prestigious independent UK label, a third and fourth album on a major US label and scoring a hit single in the United States. Early pioneers of the dark and moody electronic music known as darkwave, their 1980s releases included synthpop/electronic dance music.

Though the band is still active and continues to tour and release records, of the original songwriters (Nooten, Moorings, and Wolbert), only Moorings remains in the band today. After the departure of Nooten and Wolbert in the early 1990s, their music turned increasingly goth.

Twist of Shadows is Xymox’s third full-length album, released in 1989 on Wing Records (PolyGram) and produced by Peter Walsh (acclaimed producer of Simple Minds’s New Gold Dream album).
