The year of the corona-pandemic, when the world was forced into a standstill, five old friends finally put an old idea in motion. The result is a brand new band, The Halo Effect, who recently inked a contract with Nuclear Blast.

The members of The Halo Effect are not only masters of their domain, but also pioneers of the Gothenburg melodeath scene, who, at some point, have all been members of fellow Gothenburg icons In Flames: Lead guitarists Niclas Engelin (ENGEL) and Jesper Strömblad (CYHRA), lead singer and lyricist Mikael Stanne (DARK TRANQUILLITY), bassist Peter Iwers, and drummer Daniel Svensson.


Today, the band are giving metal fans all over the world a taste of their sound with debut single Shadowminds, that comes together with a music video. Its brooding atmosphere, melodic riffs and harsh vocals provide a perfect example of what The Halo Effect is about.

Watch the music video for Shadowminds below.
