||Ahhh, a fresh sound... with nothing behind
closed doors! Formed in 2002, this Finnish trio have a very atmospheric,
melodic, and aggressive approach with influences ranging from older-Katatonia
(the song, Rain Paint) to Death (the song, Death Drive & Fear).
Yep, Rain Paint
also managed to include guest performances from Henri Villberg (Rapture),
Micko Hell (Denigrate), and 2 Fragile Hollow members (a band from
which Rain Paint members, Aleksi - guitars, bass, vocals & Sami
- guitars are also a part of). There is a lot of variety here. Vocals
at times are piercing with death screams and at other times, bands
like The Cure and HIM come to mind. The guitars are crunchy with a
melodic feel for the most part, bass and drums keep an up-beat tempo,
and all in all.... Rain Paint are dark new-comers with a bright future
(if that makes sense?????).
