Soon the Brazil metal scene will no longer be known as simply the home of Sepultura. There are too many talented South American bands shaking the metal world, and Shadowside will continue the quake with their upcoming third release, Inner Monster Out.
Fronted by metal goddess Dani Nord, and powered by guitarist Raphael Mattos, drummer Fabio Buitvidas, and bassist Ricardo Piccoli, Shadowside are Santos, São Paulo’s power metal masters. Their sound includes elements of thrash and traditional metal as well, giving them a very dynamic style.
Their new album, Inner Monster Out, features guest appearances of Björn “Speed” Strid (Soilwork), Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquillity) and Niklas Isfeldt (Dream Evil), It was produced, mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström (Arch Enemy, Bring me the Horizon, Dimmu Borgir, Soilwork, Evergrey, Hammerfall). So you can bet it’s going to be a beast.
For those that are new to Shadowside, or simply skeptical, take a listen for yourself. Audio samples of the tracks “Angel with Horns,” “Gag Order,” “Waste of Life” and “Habitchual” can be heard on the band’s official ReverbNation.
