Shade Empire was formed in Kuopio, Finland late 1999. They released three demos which were all highly acclaimed, receiving positive response from the press around the world. At last their third demo woke up the true interest of record companies and Shade Empire was signed to Italian Avantgarde Music.
Shade Empire began truly develop their music and 2004 it was time for the first effort "Sinthetic". For their first album these young Finns introduced a very orchestrated, yet electronic dark/black metal.
