The Russian studio metal band from Tula, founded in 2016 by Andrey Polyakov and Gennady Shershov. The musicians have known each other for more than 15 years, and all this time they have been tied together by creativity in joint and personal musical projects, which today have found their embodiment in Ethereal Shade. Different musical preferences only help in creating interesting material. The name of the group is not accidental. The founders of the team interpret it as follows: the ethereal shadow, the ether - the all-pervasive, invisible and intangible substance, the shadow - the dark space of the soul. Thus, Ethereal Shade means by itself the pervasive dark essence of each of us, not always visible, but always present and having power and influence.
