Product Description

Product Description

Mixed and Mastered by Jens Bogren at Orebro, Sweden. (Opeth, Amon Amarth & Iron Maiden) Until Rain is a progressive metal band which was formed back in 2004 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The band's music is a mix of many musical elements such as prog, melodic and experimental metal, art rock, electronic music sometimes combined even with extreme metal elements. In July 2009 Until Rain signed with Steel Gallery Records for their first label release, the debut concept album, "The Reign Of Dreams". The album was recorded during the first months of 2009 at Fragile Studios in Athens. Its concept concerns dreams, but its scenario could be a real and adventurous life story. It deals with the struggle of a man realizing his actions and sins during a voyage inside a Dreamworld. Until Rain quickly followed up with the EP "Pandemic", which consists of 4 new songs and 4 bonus tracks (acoustic versions, radio edits etc), giving a taste of Until Rain's next full length release, blended with 2 tracks from the past, sounding heavier than the first album and more mature. The Band has now finished the recordings of their new full-length album Anthem to Creation and the results are astounding. These five passionate guys have performed with many artists over the years - to name a few: Jeff Martin (The Tea Party), Firewind and Psychotic Waltz. Musically Until Rain sits comfortably between the melodic progressive metal of Shadow Gallery or Circus Maximus and the more epic orchestral power of Symphony X or Time Requiem. It's a great blend of well-known facets and a unique take on the progressive metal genre with the inclusion of Greek folklore in both lyrics and melodies. This quintet is poised to take the rock world by storm with their unique brand of Progressive metal. Quote from Khalil Turk: One of the best progressive melodic metal band I have heard in years, I absolutely love this band, and I have not stopped playing this album!! Track listing: Brain Death; Think Again; Living Hell; My Own Blood; Empty Helmet; 13-8; The Clang of Shields Pt. I ; The Clang of Shields Pt. II; Anthem to Creation; Breaking of the 7 Seals; Marionettes

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe how great these guys are, one of the best prog metal bands I've ever heard 23 Mar. 2014
By Jake - Published on
I randomly came across this album shortly after it came out last fall and they immediately became one of my favorite bands I've ever heard. I still don't understand how a band with so much musical talent and such incredible songwriting isn't more famous.

I'd describe them as a slightly faster and heavier Dream Theater with a better singer, and maybe with slightly weaker keyboards and drums, but still amazingly talented by all means. If you like Dream Theater, Stratovarius, Devin Townsend, Iron Maiden, Haken, Opeth, Porcupine Tree, or any progressive metal really, I promise you'll love this band. They do a lot of Dream Theater covers too, so it's clear they take a ton of inspiration from the band and it shows in their music.

The title track "Anthem to Creation" is in my top 10 favorite songs of all time; it's really one of the best prog metal epics ever written, and if more people had heard of this band, it would easily be one of the most famous prog metal epics out there. "Empty Helmet" is a heavier prog metal epic more akin to classic Metallica or newer Iron Maiden stuff. "Brain Death" has more of a simple structure but the raw talent bursting out of the band will blow you away, the singer could out-sing almost every great metal singer out there with the chorus.

Every song on here is really great though, even though they're a brand new, almost unheard-of band and this is only their second album, not a single song on here sounds uninspired or quickly thrown together. The talent and effort that went into writing these songs is clear throughout the whole album. Some of the songs on their first album aren't really anything outstanding, but believe me, every song on this album is amazing. I'm thoroughly convinced that once this band gains a bigger fanbase and becomes a little more mainstream in the prog metal community, most people will regard this album as one of the best prog metal albums out there. You'd really be missing out if you didn't at least just listen to these songs.
