Shadowside - What If

Welcome Shadowside to the EMP Label Group family!

Brazilian Metal band Shadowside, featuring former Hammerfall bassist Magnus Rosén, have signed a deal with EMP Label Group to release their fourth studio album Shades of Humanity in Europe and USA on July 28th.

Shades of Humanity shows off a confident Shadowside, exploring deep subjects such as depression, abortion, the Mariana dam disaster in Brazil and mankind`s moral values, branching out in musical ways nobody expected. The album was produced and mixed by Fredrik Nordström (Arch Enemy, Hammerfall, Evergrey, In Flames, Dream Evil) and Henrik Udd (Architects, Dimmu Borgir, Dream Evil, Arch Enemy, Bring me the Horizon) in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Shades of Humanity features a song called Unreality, written by Magnus Rosén in partnership with guitarist Andy La Rocque (King Diamond), as well as go-for-the-throat scorchers like Insidious Me, modern-edged crushers Make My Fate and The Fall and Alive, track that is also going to be the album's first music video. A sample of What If, one of the album's tracks, can be heard at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3LbMsUAqcY

Shadowside's lead singer Dani Nolden is thrilled with the partnership. "We are very proud to be working with EMP! I have always admired the label and their artists, so I'm honored that we'll get to release our new album Shades of Humanity with them. I feel this is our best material by far and it's amazing that we will have the chance to join forces with Thom and David on this one. We really believe in their work ethics and I don't think there could be a better home for Shadowside right now."

Shadowside achieved international notoriety in 2011 with their third album, Inner Monster Out, when they hit #9 on CMJ's Loud Rock Charts, remaining on the top 15 most played Rock/Metal bands for 6 weeks in a row, reached #26 in the best selling album charts in Japan, according to BURRN! Magazine and won the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards in the Best Metal/Hardcore Album category by popular choice. The band has so far toured 30 countries, both as a headline act and as support for legendary bands such as Iron Maiden, W.A.S.P. and Helloween.
