SHODAN is a death metal three-piece concepted in Wrocław, Poland in 2013. Distinctive style of the band is a unique hybrid of death metal brutality, progressive approach towards song structures and not infrequently spiced with melodies of roots deep on cold wave aesthetics. In 2015 SHODAN together with producer Arkadiusz “Malta” Malczewski recorded tracks for their debut LP called “Protocol of Dying”. The record was released in spring 2016 under the cooperative flags of Defense Records and Deformeathing Production. The album and a dozen of live appearances with acts like Sinister, Absu, Beheaded or Rotting Christ as well as on metal music festivals like: Gothoom, Into the Abyss, Metalmania or Castle Party met with avid response and review from both audience and the media.

After successful cooperation with producer Kuba Mańkowski (Azarath, Behemoth, Blindead), in April 2020, the band releases “Death, Rule Over Us” via Deformeathing Productions which introduces a slightly different approach towards Shodan music with more experiments, raw, organic sound and cold wave melodic involved. Successful release and reception were once again confirmed by series of gigs with Hate, Krzysztof Drabikowski’s Batushka, Rotting Christ or Blood Incantation and summer festivals, like Summer Dying Loud.

In 2023 SHODAN signed a record deal with Time To Kill Records to release their new album.
