THE HALO EFFECT release remix version of “Shadowminds” by IHSAHN 


Gothenburg sensation THE HALO EFFECT is currently touring through Europe with their fellow countrymen AMON AMARTH and label mates MACHINE HEAD, leaving masses of adoring fans in their wake.

Their debut album, “Days Of The Lost,” released in August, dominated the charts worldwide. Reaching #1 in Sweden, #6 in Germany, Austria, and Finland, and #8 in Switzerland. The album’s lead single, “Shadowminds” achieved huge success in 2022, reaching over 5 million plays across Spotify & YouTube. Now, the band reveals a remix of “Shadowminds”, re-imagined by legendary EMPEROR mastermind IHSAHN, who has added an extraordinary avant-garde flare.

Listen to the track here:

Ihsahn comments on the remix: “I was flattered when my friends in The Halo Effect approached me for a remix, and, given the pedigree of Swedish metal within the band, I knew the original track would of course be stellar! So, I decided to try a somewhat experimental approach while still building on the core elements of the song. I hope Halo-fans will appreciate this slightly twisted version of ‘Shadowminds.'”
