The new wave of melodic death metal is coming from Switzerland, a country which never gave birth to any important act of this genre before. Dreamshade's upcoming album "What Silence Hides" will be a breath of fresh air and is going to stand out among the others thanks to it's new and unique sound: a mixture of guitar solos and melodies which will reach your emotions, in-your-face rhythmics able to make you head-bang and break your neck, incredibly technical drums, atmospheric keyboards, ripping screams and growls. Thanks to the real hard work and abilities of the young guys, improved by the perfect sound quality of swedish Studio Fredman's engineers and by Sterling Sound in New York, "What Silence Hides" will be one of the most revealing Debut-albums of 2010 and will open the doors to a modern and unique melodic-death-metal-derivated genre.
Influenced by mostly any kind of music and metal sub-genres, from the most melodic and emotive to the most brutal and aggressive stuff, the guys write songs which make blow up fans of bands like Children Of Bodom, In Flames, Darkest Hour and Norther, still bringing to the world something completely new and never heard before!
The band was formed in 2006 by guitarists Fella and Rocco, but it took them more than 1 year to find the right members able to play such extremely hard and technical riffs. After only 2 years of existence the six guys began to play at some of the most important european festivals such as Metal Camp Open Air 2008, Metal Camp Open Air 2009 (main stage), Summer Breeze Open Air 2009, and did several gigs with the top metal-acts of today. Their live experience and hard work on the scene lead them to perform killer shows where what it can always and constantly be seen is crazy stuff like head-banging neck-breakers, jumping crowds, circle pits, crowd surfings, and whatever may create an unforgettable chaos-party atmosphere! Because this is what a Dreamshade's concert is: a full of energy party in perfect "stay positive" style.
Being in the process of songwriting for their up-coming new album, DS decided in October 2011 to part ways with former vocalist Iko due to musical differences. As their new singer Kevin Cali joined the band. Born in Lugano Kevin played in several local bands and since 2001 he has been acting as the lead singer of the band ROOTS OF DEATH, where he had the chance to play on several tours including their 2007 show at Wacken Open Air”
