Powerhouse American vocalist Russell Allen (SYMPHONY X, ADRENALINE MOB) will produce the as-yet-untitled new studio album from the Brazilian progressive/power metal band SHAMAN.
The relationship between Allen and SHAMAN began with his participation in the new SHAMAN video, "Nocturnal Human Side". Some of the footage for the clip was filmed in New York City, with Allen making an appearance in the video.
"After the positive experience that was this video filming, it became clear for we all that we had to do more things together," says SHAMAN vocalist Thiago Bianchi. "The idea to have Russell as our producer came naturally. Since then, we have been fun. Russell is an extremely spontaneous guy and his contribution have been a lesson of profissionalism and musicality."
A teaser for the "Nocturnal Human Side" clip, which which also features an appearance by the international model and actress Renata Diffley, can be seen below. The video was directed by Alex Batistawill, who has previously worked with SHAMAN on the "Ego" and "Finally Home" clips.
