Greyfade is a one-man alternative metal band based in Dubai, UAE, that crosses the genre with musical eclecticism through experimental sounds.
Born in Lebanon, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Fadi Helou began playing music at the age of 15 and songwriting by the age of 17. He founded his first band “The Prophecy” and subsequently moved to the United Arab Emirates where he started his latest music project Greyfade based on the influences of such iconic bands as Metallica, Megadeth, and Iron Maiden.
Greyfade released its debut album Life in August 2016. Distributed worldwide digitally and available physically in Virgin Megastores across the Middle East, Life is a 10-song album that blends a traditional metal sound with a layered vibe that transposes the expressionism behind the contradictory emotions of human experience. From anger to serenity, to beauty and rage, Greyfade’s music, showcasing the emotional spectrum and the dualities of life, is both a study and an expression of life lived.
The Change is Greyfade’s latest album. Demonstrating a maturity in his artistic progression, it incorporates a more positive outlook in his music. Covering new themes, such as taking control and shaping one's own life, the artist dives deeper into his eclectic musical knowledge, utilizing electronic elements and productions effects, alongside of hints of classical guitar, making the album an accessible and immersive experience. The Change is an anthem of self-empowerment and growth, concepts intrinsic to Greyfade's revamped artistic development.
