When My Kingdom Music labeled this Cd as "Intense and emotional music" I was expecting a very slow down-tuned Gothic Metal album, instead I've got a very unusual one, I can't say I'm pleased with how this sounds, but I can't say I'm disappointed either.
I think people is running out of ideas to name bands, because the name Rain Paint is not the most creative I've heard around, anyway, here we have a very weird mixture, so, take note and I'll show you how to make a nice bowl of Rain Pain a lá Nihil Nisi Mors:
First, wash your hands, and go get the main ingredients:
2 parts of Katatonia
1 part of Opeth
A cup of My Dying Bride
A pinch of Moonspell
Mix all the elements in a bowl, and serve with a side dish of Dark Tranquillity "projector" era.
You've go a dish plenty of influences right? but Rain Paint has created a very unique and multi-layered album , that goes from Progressive, Doom and Melodic Death Metal to a bit of Gothic and New Wave.
With such a variety of sounds one may think that this album makes no sense whatsoever, I thought that with the first spin too, but slowly I began to capture the essence of this album, the moody sounds and the melancholic atmosphere.
Anyway I can only said that this was a hard album to review, when you don't really have much to say about an album, means that it doesn't impacted you as it was expected, I will recommend this one to fans of gothic and dark music. As for me, I'll stick to more conventional stuff.
