Imagine a band which have some Pantera-like powerful riffs, plays mainly Korn-like twisted themes and have at the microphone a girl who may howling sometimes, but mainly sings like Amy Lee of Evanescence. But they also use samplers, insert contorted dubstep/drum’n’bass breaks and distorted noises in several songs such as “At The Bottom Of The Bottle”, “Judgemental Trap”, “Unwritten Letter”, etc . Not the usual/conventional metal outfit, but still extremely intense and brutal, Infected Rain build up their own blended style.
Formed in 2008, in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova – a landlocked state in Eastern Europe, located between Romania and Ukraine eventually knowned for its wine and pretty girls -, they recorded their first demo in the same year and participated in Crimea at the metal festival Red Alert and played several concerts in Moldova and Ukraine.
In 2009 they released their first 6 song EP and played at several festivals Metal Heads’ Mission, RockHausen, Fuckin’FuckFest 3, Big Up! Urban Fest, etc, appearing on the same stage with such bands as All Shall Perish, Agnostic Front, Sworn Enemy and Pro-Pain.
In the winter of 2010 it was filmed the video for the song “Judgemental Trap”
Lena – vocals, Seriy and Vidick – guitars, Vova – bass, and Vadim – drums now delivering their full-length debut album entitled “Asylum”. 16 tracks, an intense journey to the gloomiest corners of metal evoking Korn, Pantera, Deftones, Soulfly, Machine Head and other monsters, but at the bottom line delivering an unique Infected Rain product.
Promisful debut, definitively worth to listen this album and catch them live.
