Details Of New Album “Shades Of Humanity” Posted By Shadowside

Brazilian based metal act Shadowside revealed more details about the upcoming new album today. After several international tours and achieving international notoriety with the highly praised “Inner Monster Out,” in 2012, the band announces the brand new work “Shades of Humanity,” marking the official debut of new bassist Magnus Rosén (ex-Hammerfall). The album will be released in Japan on July 26th via Spiritual Beast, in North America/Europe on July 28th via EMP Label Group, owned by Megadeth’s bassist Dave Ellefson, and in Brazil on September 4th via Furia Music Records.

“Shades of Humanity” explores deep subjects such as depression, abortion, the Mariana dam disaster in Brazil and mankind’s moral values, branching out in musical ways nobody expected while still keeping their heavy guitar riffs and catchy melodies. 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 tracks such as “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 in the player below.

The cover artwork (shown below) was developed by designer Douglas Jen of Furia Music, and demonstrates the heavy atmosphere of the lyrics, representing the several aspects of human personality, marked by defects and unfinished drawings that symbolize the imperfection of all people.

Check out the cover artwork and track list below:

1. The Fall
2. Beast Inside
3. What If
4. Make My Fate
5. Insidious Me
6. The Crossing
7. Stream of Shame
8. Parade the Sacrifice
9. Drifter
10. Unreality
11. Alive
12. Haunted (Bonus track for Japan)
