    Shade and Dust is an Alternative Death Metal band born in 2015, nearby Nantes, in France.
    Different influences such as Lamb of God, Gojira, Sepultura or Devildriver lead them to combine the Death brutality and the Thrash riffing with some alternative keys. On the words side, the band approaches themes like fatality, absurdity of life, time or perceptions through their own view.
    On stage, one thing is for sure, the five musicians don’t want you to remain indifferent. Emerging from the shade for their very first time, the group ends up victorious at the Vignoble Nantais musical tournament 2017.
    The adventure begins and the shows to follow are getting more and more important. Note, the Motocultor Metal Fest warm up 2017, Amarok Metal Fest 2018 or Nantes Metal Fest 2018. Great experiences allowing them to share some scenes with bands of national stature such as Deficiency, Malkavian, Heart attack, DeathAwaits, Flayed or Sticky Boys.
    Shade and Dust enters 2019 at a turning point. New scenography for a new show, designed to carry their first album : Erode. Produced in Clisson, at the Vamacara studio (Loudblast, Dagoba, Joey Jordison, Les Tambours Du Bronx, Otargos,…).
    Crossing the path of Aephanemer and Pensées Nocturnes at the Keudfest, Shade and Dust is well determined to step out of their homeland to show off more of loud stuff.
    The journey has just begun.

Track Name: Emergensystem
Emergensystem

Attention everyone, time is short.
Hurry up, don’t look back.
Last call for an escape,
Seize that chance,
Your last chance.

Run, how simple is that?
Must find, must find out by all means
A way out through the human tide.
Yet desperate crisis
Calls for desperate measures.

Emergency yelling our names,
Emergensystem switched on too late.
Nowhere to turn, no shelter remains,
Barren wasteland demised upon disdain.

Our beliefs lost in the dust storm.
We’re all destined to be forgotten.

Think fast, left for dead with all your kind,
Beyond life, beyond time.
The last sunset is spelling the end.
Yet desperate crisis
Calls for desperate measures.

Emergency yelling our names,
Emergensystem switched on too late.
Nowhere to turn, no shelter remains,
Barren wasteland demised upon disdain.

When the last day comes,
When starvation starts,
Guess what, there won't be room for everyone.
What did you expect? What have you been told?
What a lie!

Finally it has begun,
The biggest mass extinction.
Lost here within yourself, Hopeless,
Struggling to breathe.

What now?
Track Name: Blackmailed
Blackmailed

Drown, I saw you drown,
Sank, under that weight.

Turn off the lights.
For once now, will you tell me who you are?
Away the veil.
Is your life an eternal rolling dice?

Raise your head,
As it shows that you've been blackmailed
And been caught up. Caught!
Soft voice which cover silent threats
Leaves you with no control, no chance.
How do you breathe?
How do you feel?
What have you done?

Gave up, sold your soul.

Turn on the lights.
Which face do you show in
The light of day, who's this?
Who's to blame? Now,
Whose fault could it be?

Your inner self is called into question.
Judge your own fate,
Call it unfair or wrong.
Can you make it right?

Can't bear it anymore,
No more strain,
No more strings, no more fear, end it

What is done is done.
Lower the gun, if there's a price to pay,
You're aiming at the wrong target.
Reclaim your life.

Obviously chained,
Faking the one you're not.
Don't wait for help,
You are the only one struggling.

What now? Future is yours.
Obviously chained,
Faking the one you're not.
Don't wait for help,
You are the only one struggling.

Calm down, raise your head,
As it shows that you've been blackmailed
And been caught up. Caught!
Soft voice which cover silent threats
Leaves you with no control, no chance.
How do you breathe?
How do you feel?
What have you done?

So alone so lost and hopeless,
Any chance that you can start all over again?

Fight! Go!

How do I seek to repay everything?
How do I seek to repair every sin?

No more strain,
No more strings,
No more fear.
Track Name: Promised To Dust
Promised to dust

"Saw the light", "Felt the touch".
You're lost, lost in a world you
Don't want to know, face it.

Weak after ages of reign,
Hidden, hoping against hope.

Proud of this scenery with
Eyes that can't see, blinded by the Light.
As if He had made it for you alone.

The truth has always been
Spread out to your gaze, you know.
Why’d’you care 'cause we are all Promised to dust.

Gates of this alternative world
Wide open, to breed these empty minds.

Proud of this scenery with
Eyes that can't see, blinded by the Light.
As if He had made it for you alone.

The truth has always been
Spread out to your gaze, you know.
Why’d’you care 'cause we are all Promised to dust.

Why oiling your own nails?
Why carrying your own cross?
What grace do you expect?
Guess what I see, looking at you.
I'm giving up, giving up, giving up on you.

Waiting for Light to crack the sky,
For all I know, you stand for nothing.
Why’d’you care 'cause we are all Promised to dust.

If an eye's above us, let the balance decide.

Game on.

Game on, got one shot to waste.
If God has a plan for us,
Why are you, why are you so afraid to die?

Weak, after ages of reign,
Hidden, hoping against hope.
Left to your own judgement,
Pray on, 'til being reduced to...
Track Name: Ordalium
Ordalium

Keep your head down.
Here comes the storm, let it pass without sound.

Leave it to fate, the odds decide.
Thanks to the tricks you made up,
Wich may be tempting, wich may enthral.
Protected from life? From any wound, from every scar.

Oppressive silence for a face to face,
Somehow broken by shackles clinks.
No matter how hard I pray,
Hiding it from sight won't make it all disappear, disappear.

As the duel begin, will I hear the wind
Telling me, in a haunting whisper,
You've only cast my curse?
We're both cursed.

First dazed, am I blind enough
To place my life in their hands?
Drop it, I rather
Go my own way and refuse
Your sick ordalium.

Waking up,

In a theatre of lies, dismiss!
Drifting away
From clouded vision of life you created.
Tear it down.

Here comes the time for
The world to change,
For the smoke and mirrors you detained us in
To fall apart.

Aren't you done now? I wanna break the game.
No one will take the first step for us.
No matter how hard I pray,
Hiding it from sight won't make it all disappear, disappear.

Is there anyone to weigh
The scale of evidences?
I'll pick the road that
Keeps me away from your sick,
Your sick ordalium.

If it was up to me,
I'd take you down to set ourselves free.
Will this ever ends?

Are you done? Ordalium.
Are you done? Ordalium.
Are you done? Ordalium.
Are you done? Sick ordalium.
Track Name: Fall !
Fall

Take the leap your heart seeks.
Fall! Fall!

Through the ages, adages are vain,
Kind words can’t balance the Evil you endured.

Are you relieved to fall down?
Conscience back on solid ground.
Are you wiser reaching the end?
No second glance, no regrets.

Gone in one last thrill.

Many have shown their true colours by now.
Why would you care about
Such a desperate crowd?

Are you relieved to fall down?
Conscience back on solid ground.
Are you wiser reaching the end?
No second glance, no regrets.

Wonder about everything you fled,
There's much to earn beyond pain.
If some would die for tryin’ too much,
You might have left ‘cause you gave up.
Tributes from an unknown friend,
May you find ease on the other side.

Alone you fled where many drown.
Behind you left those who will mourn.

May your curse leave them alone,
Your burden on other falls.
Your burden on other falls.
May your curse leave them alone,
Your burden on other falls.
Your burden on other falls…
Track Name: Exhibit A
Exhibit A

What?
Where am I?
And how did I get there?
Calm down,

Turn the clock back, come to yourself, now.
No-one is there to see the mess, not yet.
Let's face it.

Boy, what have you done?
This shame is yours.
What a great scene of your inglorious games.
Lifeless white flesh to feed your guilt, it's gone too far.
Was it meant to be?

Exhibit A…
You're such a waste, a hopeless case!
How long will you try to hide it?
Resurfacing, exhibit A 'der these eyes of mine.

It's getting worse, now the day breaks.
The first rays of light reveal the playground
Of your insatiable thirst in dead silence.

No compassion,
I already knew you're such a lost cause.
Accept it or not, twisted you are.
So lost there's no solution to clean your soul.

Fast, you used to live fast.
Into the lust you thrived.
Fast, to get the best from all,
The further you climb, the higher you have to fall.
You wished it would never end but still,
Can't you remember me
Foreseeing your loss?

Go back, go back in time,
Before everything profoundly changed.
This world of yours was becoming so unstable.
Kept afloat by me.

Exhibit A…
You're such a waste, a hopeless case!
How long will you trying to hide it?
Resurfacing, exhibit A 'der these eyes of mine.
Under these eyes of mine,
Under these eyes of mine…
Track Name: Haze Me
Haze me

So, you better know
I'll never be satisfied.
Close my eyes, bend over,
I get lost in the lust.

My lonely time
Brought me back here
To haze me.
Step out of line,
Don't make me beg.

Deny it, bury it,
This will always be part of my past.
Haze me!

Lustful desire
led me to pain
one more time,
Crossing the line
Of decency.

Embrace it, feel it,
Being controlled turns me on.

Once on the lead,
We used to be this close.

Such a pretty face
To hide a sadistic mind.
Have my will under your heel,
Can I handle this?

My lonely time
Brought me back here
To haze me.
Fall back in line,
Don't make me beg.

Deny it, bury it,
This will always be part of my past.
Haze me !

Lustful desire
led me to pain
one more time,
Crossing the line
Of decency.

Dig deep,
Crawling on my knees,
I will let you lead.

Enslaved to the haze,
I'm off the edge.
Track Name: Lies To Cover Lies
Lies to cover lies

Another wicked way to lead innocence
To another disillusion, grab my hand, come.
Can you see it, at first well intended then, acting on its own.
Didn't see it growing and growing to take over control.

Lies to cover lies to cover lies to cover an iron hand.
Lies to cover lies to cover lies to set them up in a golden cage.

This is still the world you thought you knew,
Without artifice.
Here comes the time for you to rule,
Follow me, come.
Queen in the shadows, you
will have the whole world to redesign.
Imperium built by words shaping your reign,
Everything will be just fine.

Lies to cover lies to cover lies to cover an iron hand.
Lies to cover lies to cover lies to set them up in a golden cage.

All conflicts have gone away, life reaches perfection.

Embrace our jaded mind,
Reach out for the truth to lead them by lies.
We'll wait for the end of time,
I'll be watching from afar.
I've lost my faith, I gave up the fight.

Come, another wicked tale
goes on, on and on.
Will you listen or tell it,
Pick a side, come.
Here comes the last page of your ingenuous time.
At once your honesty becomes a selfish virtue.

Watch them wallow in their sea of illusions.
Turning a blind eye, ignoring their chains.

Lies to cover lies to cover lies to cover an iron hand.
Lies to cover lies to cover lies to set them up in a golden cage.

Living in deny is the key to a peaceful life,
Until the truth comes out to tear the world down.

Do not trust me, I never wanted to
Set yourself free, I believe in you.
Do not trust me, I never wanted to
Set yourself free, I believe in you.
Do not trust me, I never wanted to
Set yourself free, I believe in you.

So, lies to cover lies to cover lies to create a life beyond this hell.
Track Name: Many Shades
Many shades

Behind her back lays a past,
Before her eyes, an unknown path.

Despite every soul you met, every face,
Hardships, attempts and reliefs
Which led you to me today.
Despite the failures, you never learn.
Listen up, don't get me wrong,
You don't see the whole picture.

Get closer to
Truth and its many shades.

Beside her, a hope, the pain, the joy.
Carrying her past, regrets and pride.
Between the fears and creeds, she has left her mark.
Didn't need to wait for your advice.

Frightened, in doubt you stand, waiting, wasting time,
Crushing against the walls of your pretentious mind.
Lost your identity, fading into the crowd,
Missing real life and its many shades.

Infinite ways to be, infinite shades of life.
Everyone, everywhere, more than
meets the eye.

Inside her mind, she lost everything twice,
And by twice, rewrote the meaning of her life.
In front of her, the same world she will see differently.
What does make you think you know?

What does make you think you know?

Forever and ever, we all…
We all wear many shades.

So, we're all living with the pain we hide.
Each story stays unique, unknown to everyone.
So, the more we learn, the more we see we learned nothing,
Nothing about life and its many shades.
Track Name: Make Them Watch
Make them watch

Driven by ghosts, through eternal depths,
Walk the death row, down the red enlighten way.
Paralysed by another vision of pain.

Left, right, left and stop.
Sit on the chair, eyes on the clock,
Deep breath and shock, shock, shock.

The call of the torturer woke you up.
Resignated you feel no,
No shame, no remorse.
In the midst of your dread, the ruins of your mind,
Bring them back from the dead,
to make them watch.

Left, right, left and stop.
Sit on the chair, eyes on the clock,
Deep breath and shock, shock, shock.

Summon the reaper from your dark nights,
Unleashed free since your demise.
Do you know where you are?
Your world shrinked to this cage.
Can you recall
Why you fell, are you even dead?
Now show them.

The call of the torturer woke you up.
Resignated you feel no,
No shame, no remorse.
In the midst of your dread, the ruins of your mind,
Bring them back from the dead,
to make them watch.

Day by day, dazed, alone,
Forgive what you get then forget what you gave.
Day by day, lost, wasted,
Forgive what you get then forget what you gave.
Day by day, dazed, alone,
Forgive what you get then forget what you gave.

So, trapped, in the seventh circle of hell,
You'll never pay your debt.
I promise to seal your doom.
