NightShade is excited to release their first music video from their upcoming album “An Endless Vision“. The video for “Betrayal” is now premiering at MetalInsider.net. While the deathcore group was filming the music video in Spain, a demonstration in Madrid turned ugly when thousands of protestors clashed with riot police. Protesting in response to the announcement of severe austerity measures, police reportedly made 22 arrests while over 32 were injured. As a result, NightShade decided to include shocking footage that shows police using violent force on protestors in the video for “Betrayal.” This video is SERIOUSLY INTENSE!
“This song ‘Betrayal’ is about how people need to open their eyes and stop being controlled by their governments. People shouldn’t be scared to take control of their own lives and make their own choices,” explains guitarist Bastien Deleule. “It’s ironic that a huge civil protest broke out in Spain while we were there shooting our music video, considering it is effectively what this song is about. Spain has over 50% unemployment and things are dire and people are angry, and we are angry too. We choose to express our anger with our music and we hope everyone loves it as much as we do! Other than being in the middle of some scary riots in Spain, we had a blast filming this video!”
France’s NightShade is set to release its most adventurous album to date on April 30, 2013. The group’s third offering, “An Endless Vision” is set to continue the outfit’s signature one part deathcore and one part Euro metal sound. Recorded at Nalcon Studios and mixed by Jason Suecof (Trivium, Devildriver, Whitechapel), “An Endless Vision” boasts a huge groovy sound but ventures into ‘djentier’ territories without straying from the band’s roots.
Producer extraordinaire Jason Suecof commented on working with NightShade, “I personally enjoyed working on this album. It completely took my face, ripped it apart, rearranged it, and sold it on the black market as food for your kids whilst desecrating my soul for all eternity.”
Originally formed by Bastien Deluele, NightShade picked up a deal with Bullet Tooth for the release of the group’s second album, “Lost In Motion,” recorded, mixed, and mastered by the world renowned Fredrik Nordström (Bring Me The Horizon, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity). Upon the release of “Lost In Motion” NightShade completed 2 U.S. tours, a European tour, and two appearances at the prestigious Euroblast Festival in Cologne Germany in 2010 and 2012. The song “The Depths Of Memory” is available on the RockBand Network for download now.
With the mastering being handled by Alan Douches (Lacuna Coil, The Ghost Inside), “An Endless Vision” will seek to deliver crushing grooves, epic breakdowns, lush melodies, and infectious electronic soundscapes in a way that sets NightShade apart from the rest. Keep your eyes posted for the release this year!
Interviews and features on NightShade have been posted at NoiseCreep, Highwire Daze, Alt Revolt (Page 1 & 2), Metal Underground, Toledo Press, and the Hartford Advocate. The band has also had some great success at metal radio with spins and coverage from CILU, KJML, KRUA, KTUH, KUPD, WAQX, WBMT, WEDG, WEOS, WIYY, WMPG, WORT, WSUP, WUPX, WXCI, WXRX, and WZOR.
“NightShade combines the speed of traditional metalcore, the heaviness of death metal, and influences of modern electronic music to create a unique sound that should catapult them onto the tips of everyone’s tongues.” – KillerTours
