French death metallers Altered Shade are proud to announce the release of the official video for the song “The Dark Gift of Life” taken from their album “The Path of Souls” (out on March the 17th via Wormholedeath / Aural Music).
“The Dark Gift of Life”
Altered Shade is a metal band from the southwest of France, that play a powerful death/thrash metal with raw energy through punchy grooves adding a melodic and dark touch. The project was born during spring 2009 when Rudy (guitar) and Cedric (drums) met. Several musicians joined the band, and during January 2012 the final line up was completed by the arrival of Fab (bass), Romain (guitar) and Edwin (vocals). Their music is influenced by old school death, thrash and heavy metal, but also by dark, black, power and brutal. The lyrics are about esotericism and fanstasy, but always linked to human psychology. After a few concerts, the band recorded two demos, the last one during 2014. Altered Shade were discovered by the producer Johnathan Mazzeo, which brought the band to record their first album in Prato Italy at the Mathlab Recording Studio under the flag of Wormholedeath Records. This first album “The Path of Souls” has been recorded and mixed by Johnathan Mazzeo and mastered by Chris Donaldson at the Grid studio Montreal Canada.
