Switzerland, Halloween 1998 – Nightshade was founded by multi-instrumentalist Thomas, vocalist David and bass player Al. The band created a distinctive adventurous metal style mixing orchestral arrangements, cosmic synths, taking listeners to the edge of the metal genre. In 2004, the band changed shape and continued as XICON to pursue a more industrial route.
Halloween 2019, on its 21st anniversary, Nightshade was resurrected under the sign of the stars with a newfound energy. A renewed musical style – shaped by 20 years of experiments and discoveries where the spectre of its humble origins lurks beyond its new musical frontiers. The result of this resurrection is a new album titled “Sounds Of Dark Matter” anticipated by the single “Pulsars” in 2020. The album will be released by My Kingdom Music on November 19th, 2021.
