Thanks to Spotify, I just discovered what could be my new favorite band: Shade Empire! They're a fantastic blend of black, melodic, and industrial metal with symphonic elements as well. Seems they've been around awhile. Since 2007 at least. Have you all been keeping this diamond-in-the-rough a secret, or...? They have over a million plays on last.fm, yet I don't recall ever seeing their name mentioned before. I'm loving everything about this. Hope you will too SIDE-NOTE: while browsing Shade Empire videos, I was recommended to watch this, and I am worshiping it Am I the last to hear of TRACEDAWN too??
