Symphonic Injected Hatred

So, for the next installment of All Things Maedia, I figured I would throw in a little Symphonic/Black Metal into the mix just to keep things interesting. 

                                                         SHADE EMPIRE




Shade Empire, hailing from one of the birth places of metal, Finland! A few years ago while searching for some good symphonic stuff I stumbled upon these titans. Though their popularity is not high, they make up for it with quality and insanity. Their music is a fine mix of Symphonic/Black/Industrial/Melodeath that sometimes borders on the edge of Trance even. While listening to them, I have often found myself drifting off in their heavy mind-numbing bliss of utter METAL. Unspeakably brutal guitar patterns, multi-layered and yet beautiful synth walls, ingenious arrangements combined with electronics, devastating drum parts, complex bass assaults and the unique vocals coming straight from the deep pits of Hell itself! My list of favorites is long, brutal, and steeped full of blood.. and these guys are definately at the top. They are currently going under a label change and could probably use all the help they can get. As per the usual I will list a video or two to get you started, their album "Intoxicate O.S." is a masterpiece within itself, and I beseech you to purchase it at once! If you're feeling generous head over to their site and show them some support. Shade Empire
