‘Reflecting The Shadows’
Code of Shame
Reflecting the Shadows
Suppressed With Light
Of Dreams Devoured
Finnish Hybrid metal band Vansidian has released their anticipated debut album ‘Reflecting The Shadows’ on May 19th 2023.
‘Reflecting the Shadows’ stands out from the sounds of modern metal albums, showcasing an unique brand of heavy metal.
The album fusions together old school sound of 80’s heavy metal with the crushing brutality of the early pioneers of melodic death metal.
By combining an impressive variety of influences, it delivers a sound that covers the whole spectrum of metal subgenres.
While going further into own territory, songs are spiced with retro-game inspired melodic hooks.
Lyrical themes revolve around dualism, self-acceptance, narsism and being trapped by own lies.
Common factor is the protagonist himself, his mirror image or shadow.
Reflections from house of mirrors inside his mind, where faces and forms exist, possibly whispering things that are not true.
A traditional battle between one’s own demons, good and evil, light and darkness, continuously growing to epic proportions.

Finnish Hybrid Heavy Metal Band Vansidian released a new single and music video ‘Cycle’.
The track is taken from the upcoming debut album ‘Reflecting the Shadows’ which is set to be released on May 19th 2023.
The band comments Cycle single:
“The latest single from the upcoming album ‘Reflecting the Shadows’, titled ‘Cycle’, has been released on Friday, April 14, 2023. The song is one of the more ravaging tracks on the album and shakes the boundaries of the listener’s reality. Musically, the song is powerful and epic in Vansidian’s style, but especially the super catchy chorus sets it apart from other band’s releases. The narrator, who moves between the past and the future, tries to correct the flow of time in his favor. In his desperation, he travels through time and eventually believes he might find the right path.”
Vansidian is a new hybrid metal sensation, founded in Tampere, Finland year 2017.
One could describe their music as a combination of melodic death metal & classical 80’s heavy metal.
When you add retro video game inspired melodies to this deformity.
You’ll have a totally unique and otherworldly piece of music in your hands.
The band will tour around Finland before summer, when they hit the stages of the biggest metal festival in nordic countries: TUSKA.
Accompanied by bands like:
Gojira, Ghost, Arch Enemy, In Flames just to mention few.
Vansidian’s first single ‘Stormweaver’ got a great response gathering 30000 streams in Spotify & 9000 Youtube views, without any paid promotion, but just their own hard work.
