Shade Empire  


Probably best described as symphonic black metal with some techno overtones, Shade Empire are neither a pure symphonic black metal act like, say, Emperor, nor have they gone the full techno route like The Kovenant, but they do lie somewhere between the two, perhaps closer to Emperor in style. They aren't quite in the first division of extreme metal, but they're making good strides toward that goal.
