Shadowside

This Brazilian band started life in the progressive metal category, but on their 2011 album Inner Monster Out, they've dropped the pretentions and gone for a more power/groove metal sound, with downtuned, crunchy modern riffs melded with a traditional Euro power metal base, and topped with clear strong vocals. The band maintains a proper balance of melody and aggression, the songs are catchy without pandering to the masses. For whatever reason these guys and gal have maintained an infrequent recording schedule (5 releases in 17 years, and their latest, 2017's Shades Of Humanity, comes after a six-year break from recording), and at this point they're probably locked into a second-division career, but for modern, punchy, melodic metal, one could do far worse.
