Greek progressive/alternative metal outfit Until Rain have signed with Sensory Records for the release of their impending third full-length, Inure.
The band has issued some insight into the album, releasing a dramatic trailer. The band has scheduled both European mainland and Balkan tours in conjunction with the album’s release.
Inure was recorded by Until Rain in various European cities, including Thessaloniki, London, Gothenburg, and Lausanne,and mixed/mastered by Daniel Cardoso of Anathema in Lisbon, Portugal (Anneke Van Giersbergen, Anathema, Head Control System). The album features beautiful artwork by the new Greek artist/designer Nassia Kefala, and a hand-drawn cover that completely represents the concept of the album and the duality of many inured people; appearing lush on the outside, yet they are rotted inside. With nine massive tracks, Inure presents an hour-long journey that you will want to take again and again, the digital release bearing an additional bonus track as well.
Sensory Records will release Inure in Europe on April 28th and in the US on May 12th; an official digital single for “Because Something Might Happen” will be released through Spotify and other digital outlets on March 21st, accompanied by an official video for the song the same day. A trailer for the single has been released.
Until Rain have said, “We’re thrilled and proud to be working with such a renowned and well-established label like Sensory, for our third album. This album is a sincere and natural evolution for us, headed in a much more prog direction, in the essential meaning of the word.”
With Inure, the band’s first album since 2013’s well received Anthem To Creation finds them exploring the dark world of psychological/emotional abuse, loss, and doubt and it presents the darkest side of Until Rain thus far. The tempos have slowed, but the soundscape expanded, and as always, a multitude of melodies and hooks will keep you headbanging and singing along to the songs of the album. By being more direct in their songwriting, new vocalist Cons Marg (known for his work with Arjen Lucassen’s Epic Choir) shine, while the rest of the band lays the foundation of some heavy and melodic contemporary prog metal.
Until Rain have a European tour to promote the release of Inure, with Sensory labelmates Wolverine and Oddland, with shows in the UK, France, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, and Sweden.
