    Very first album CD

    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.

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.
