SHODAN is a death metal three-piece conceived in Wrocław, Poland in 2013. Distinctive style of the band is a unique hybrid of death metal brutality, progressive approach towards song structures and melodies deeply rooted in cold wave aesthetics. In 2015 SHODAN together with producer Arkadiusz “Malta” Malczewski recorded tracks for their debut LP called “Protocol of Dying”. The record was released in spring 2016 under the cooperative flags of Defense Records and Deformeathing Production. The album was followed by a dozen of live appearances with acts like Sinister, Absu, Beheaded or Rotting Christ as well as appearances at festivals such as Gothoom, Into the Abyss, Metalmania or Castle Party.
After a successful cooperation with producer Kuba Mańkowski (AZARATH, BEHEMOTH, BLINDEAD), in April 2020, the band released “Death, Rule Over Us” via Deformeathing Productions, which introduces a slightly different approach towards music with more experiments, raw, organic sound and cold wave melodic influneces involved. The album was again followed by a series of gigs with Hate, Krzysztof Drabikowski’s Batushka, Rotting Christ and Blood Incantation, and summer festivals, like Summer Dying Loud.
In 2023 SHODAN signed a record deal with Time To Kill Records to release their newest opus “None Shall Prevail”.
