Last Friday, German progressive metalcore band Torrential Rain released their new single Strung Out including a lyric video. Guitarist Gordian Golder says about the new single: “This song sounds pretty dark because of the themes of depression and running from one’s problems, we tried to convey not only lyrically but also through our instruments.”
Coupled with the guiding principle „power meets precision“, Torrential Rain fuse the unfusable: the brutal energy of bands like August Burns Red and As I Lay Dying combined with progressive-virtuoso writing á la Periphery. The four guys hailing from Nürnberg create a perfect balance of both worlds in which brute force and delicate thoughtfulness coexist and present these American novelty trends to Europe’s stages.
Scene giants like Kvelertak, Equilibrium, Illumenium or Time, The Valuator already recognized the impressive musical prowess of Torrential Rain and invited them to share the stage with them. This kind of energy was captured on two studio albums filled to the brim with „… Metal at it’s best on which the curtain repeatedly drops for technical highlights“ AllSchools Network
Following the immense success of their single Home Alone with over 100.000 organic streams on Spotify, Torrential Rain has tirelessly worked on new material. To do right by modern metal standards, Torrential Rain trusts Christoph Wieczorek (Sawdustrecordings, Annisokay) to craft their sound to perfection. No goal is too far off for Torrential Rain because there is no such thing as impossibility.
“Torrential Rain release a true anthem with ‘Home Alone’. A must-listen for fans of Trivium, Periphery and Intervals.” MoreCore.de
“Progressively, yet not overthinking these musicians create an admirable balance between high standards of musicianship and catchiness.” Hellfire Magazin
