Beginning in 2001, Shadowside entered the Brazilian metal scene with a stage act that incited a buzz around the band. This buzz enabled them to secure support slots for bands such as Nightwish, Primal Fear and Shaman in the first year of the band’s career.
During the year of 2006, Shadowside supported Helloween in Brazil. It was in 2007 that Shadowside really went international. In July 2007, they won the “AirPlay Direct All Things Digital Hard Rock / Heavy Metal”, chosen between over 1,000 bands worldwide. With the exposition received from the contest they signed a worldwide deal for the worldwide re-release of the debut album. Since then, they have been on the road frequently, having toured Spain and USA several times as well as their homecountry Brazil. Other artists they have performed with are Kittie, Divine Heresy, Daath, Temple of Brutality (featuring David Ellefson of Megadeth) and Sepultura.
Shadowside made their U.S. debut appearance at the Indianapolis Metal Fest on September 22, 2007 in Indianapolis, IN.
In the summer of 2008 Shadowside did their first tour of the US, including a performance that June at the Flight of the Valkyries festival in St. Paul, Minnesota. At that festival, Shadowside vocalist Dani Nolden shared the stage with Benedictum for a few Dio cover songs as part of an exclusive festival performance.
In August 2009 the band released their second album, Dare to Dream, in Brazil through LCM/Radar Records.
