Shade of Hatred is a Melodic Death Metal band from De Bilt. Originating from the mind of Florian, the band descended into existence in 2011. Based on a clear musical vision the group assembled itself with Rik as vocalist, Florian and Bas on guitar, Sonia on bass and Yannick on drums. With a passion for melody as well as brutal force, the five young but experienced members deliver strong and enthralling songs interlaced with lyrical themes ranging from old forgotten mythological tales to the cold and dark reflections of today’s society. Driven, passionate, but most of all metal.
