dani_nolden_3025_dc0Dani Nolden of Brazilian female-fronted metallers Shadowside reported the following update regarding their upcoming album:

“The recordings of the new Shadowside album went really well! I know I’m biased but I honestly think it sounds AWESOME! It is everything that I ever wanted to record in my career – it’s heavy, modern, even though it’s 80’s influenced, it has beautiful melodies, but I was able to do some of the most aggressive vocals that I’ve ever done, and I can’t wait to see it released and available to you all. I’m very proud of it and I think you will all love it just as much as I do!”

“While it’s not released, check out Shadowside‘s official page to watch a few videos of the recordings so you can have an idea of how everything is sounding!” Continue reading »

Magnus RosénBrazilian female-fronted metallers Shadowside have announced the addition of Swedish bassist Magnus Rosén (ex-Hammerfall) to the group’s ranks.

Magnus was part of Hammerfall from 1997 to 2007, during which time he did several world tours and recorded several albums with the band. He also worked on music with Jorn Lande (ex-Masterplan) and Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath).

Rosén, who just released his tenth solo CD titled “The World Changes”, says: “I’ve been away from the metal stage for more than eight years! Metal has a very nice energy that I miss and love, and I think Shadowside has just that kind of nice metal that fits my style! And at the same time I always liked Brazil/South America. After nine times with mixed Hammerfall tours and solo bass tours in this part of world, I know for sure of my feelings and I am looking forward to join the band Shadowside. So when I was asked to join and play with Shadowside, so was the desire great to once again set a high volume, smoke, light, and good metal music. The band have nice feelings in the metal music that I like. I got few new song ideas from the band and I think these songs and music are powerful and will be loved by the people out there. So I can’t wait to get the wheels moving forward with the band.” Continue reading »
