French death metal act Altered Shade is proud to announce and present new vocalist Dräk Wyvern (formerly Apokalyptic Sky) to the band. The band commented: "Edwin has left the band for personal reasons. We thank him for all the great moments that we shared and we wish him the best for all his future projects. We welcome Dräk Wyvern (formerly Apokalyptic Sky) as our new singer. So, see you soon on stage."
Altered Shade is a metal band from the southwest of France which plays a powerful death/thrash metal with raw energy through punchy grooves, adding a melodic and dark touch. The project was born during spring 2009 when Rudy (guitar) and Cedric (drums) met. Several musicians joined the band, until January 2012 when the final line up was set with the arrival of Fabien (bass), Romain (guitar) and Edwin (vocals).
The music is influenced by old school death, thrash and heavy metal, but also by dark, black, power and brutal. The lyrics are about esotericism and fanstastic, but always linked with human psychology. After a few concerts, the band recorded two demos, the last one in 2014. They were discovered by the producer Johnathan Mazzeo, which brought the band to record the first album in Prato, Italy at the Mathlab Recording Studio under the flag of Wormholedeath Records. This first album - “The Path of Souls” - has been recorded and mixed by Johnathan Mazzeo and mastered by Chris Donaldson at the Grid studio Montreal Canada and was released in 2016.
