Modern Metal Unit INFECTED RAIN Reveals Empowering Track “LIGHTHOUSE” + New Music Video.

INFECTED RAIN Member Band

This Friday, February 9 marks the release of INFECTED RAIN‘s already acclaimed sixth modern progressive metal opus, TIME, via Napalm Records! In celebration of this week’s release, the band has revealed their next single from the album – the empowering and intense “LIGHTHOUSE”. The track arrives with an eerie music video, providing a thought-provoking visual atop the track’s massive grooving guitars, ethereal verses and intense auditory shifts.

“LIGHTHOUSE” lands just as media acclaim is rolling in! Blabbermouth calls the album “exceptional”, while New Noise Magazine has dubbed it “the band’s heaviest material yet”Metal Hammer Germany says TIME is the band’s “strongest album to date”, and UK’s Devolution Magazine says “‘TIME‘ could well be an album of the year!”

INFECTED RAIN says about “LIGHTHOUSE”:

“From the shores of our minds to the reality of our lives, ‘LIGHTHOUSE’ represents a power that we hold inside of us. This track reminds us that the universe dances to the rhythm of our thoughts. All our thoughts are waves in the endless galaxy of creation. It’s a call to stay strong, to remain devoted to your dreams, and to realize the potential of what you can create. In the grand clockwork of TIME, every second is a chance to surf through your reality, shaping it with the power of your mind. Join us on this journey through TIME, where each song is a tick towards a reality crafted by you, for you.”

Following their most successful album to date, 2022’s Ecdysis – which garnered prime media acclaim, hundreds of thousands of streams and views, and debuted in the Top 20 on the US Current Hard Music charts – INFECTED RAIN climbs even higher with TIME. On the album, INFECTED RAIN exercise their trademarks, tastefully accenting the introspective musical journey with effectively-placed progressive, electronic and even nu-metal features amid ethereal passages. The album was once again produced, mixed and mastered by Valentin Voluta, and combines the deft talents of returning members Vidick (guitars, cover artist), Eugene Voluta (drums) and famed frontwoman Lena Scissorhands (vocals), plus introduces new member Alice Lane (bass) to the fold.

INFECTED RAIN says about TIME:

TIME is not just an album, it’s a journey, a testament to our evolution as INFECTED RAIN
Time isn’t just a measure; it’s an ever-flowing river, a constant reminder of our fleeting moments and enduring legacies. 
This subject resonates deeply throughout the record, offering to you a chance to reflect on the past, embrace the present, and dream of the future. 
With TIME, we invite you to experience the phenomena of time with us, in all its haunting beauty and raw power.”

First track “BECAUSE I LET YOU” bursts in with undeniable energy, boasting aggressive lyrics and Lena Scissorhands’ swift, menacing delivery, before previously released first single “DYING LIGHT” marches with subterranean heaviness and rhythmic grooves beneath eerie vocals and keys, and even snaps into an EDM passage, showcasing the dynamic delivery of the band in 2024. Melodic ode to self-empowerment “LIGHTHOUSE” then crashes in to juxtapose soft verses and intense auditory shifts. Album standout and djent driven “VIVARIUM” warns of society’s fickle freedoms as Lena Scissorhands delivers some of the album’s most hair-raising screams amid a haunting, ominous atmosphere, while fast-paced burners like “THE ANSWER IS YOU” and “ENMITY” flash between various EDM, synthwave and even drum and bass brushed transits amid bludgeoning rhythms. Intense “GAME OF BLAME” explores themes of hypocrisy and emotional pain delved out by those we love while boasting one of the album’s most searing breakdowns, while tracks like “PANDEMONIUM” and “UNPREDICTABLE” detail the uncontrollable energy of the future and past, respectively – boasting lofty, angelic verses with hard-hitting guitars and punching drums. Italian/English-language journey “PAURA” closes out the album with a path to self-discovery – beckoning the listener to understand that we limit ourselves with our own fears, and must harness the pain to overcome. TIME ends in a state of calm with ambient finisher “A SECOND OR A THOUSAND YEARS” – drawing the curtains closed on yet another fantastic, experimental expedition by rising stars INFECTED RAIN.
