The highly anticipated full length debut from Norwegian newcomers In Vain, offers a vastly creative addition to the extreme metal canon which will erase their unknown status for good. Imagine a complex extreme metal giant with imposing technical progressive parts. Ravaged by striking black metal passages diving into an ocean of melancholy and loss. Great song writing and enchanting melodies, all spiced up by the bands Norwegian cultural heritage. Formed by three young music enthusiasts back in 2003, the band has already released two highly critically acclaimed self financed EP’s; Will The Sun Ever Rise and Wounds. “Will the Sun Ever Rise”(2004), a three-track EP of unrelenting atmosphere, aggression and complexity. The EP was embraced by metal heads and journalists alike. Fuelled by the standing ovations and the great response from a united metal press and media, the band was soon back in the studio to record yet another, entitled “Wounds”. The music was more diverse, progressive and dramatic than ever, without sacrificing the brutal edge of its predecessor. “The Latter Rain” was recorded in DUB Studio (Green Carnation, Blood Red Throne & Chain Collector) in the summer/fall of 2006. The recording was a huge project involving close to 20 guest musicians and several guest vocalists such as legendary Jan K. Transeth (In the Woods) and Kjetil Nordhus (Green Carnation, Trail of Tears). Although the band kept the same vibe as on the two previous recordings, the music was taken a step further, in every direction. In Vain prefer to label their music as progressive extreme metal, though it’s really hard to put them in a specific genre.
