A Conversation with “Fella” and Gian of Dreamshade

What do you get when you take precision, passion, heart  and make it metal? Dreamshade. Honest Brutality had the opportunity to speak with Fernando “Fella” Di Cicco and Gian-Andrea Costa, who enlighten us to the European heart of metal fused with notorious Swiss exactitude behind their newest album “Vibrant”. Fall down the rabbit hole with us as we discuss the struggles of international touring, getting away from the “standards” of music, and much more.
