Raintime

Detail-oriented Italian death metalists Raintime formed in 1999. Inspired by their common love of Dream Theater, Claudio Coassin (keyboards), Luca Michael Martina (guitar), Matteo Di Bon (guitar), and Michele Colussi (bass) formed the core of Raintime and recorded the instrumental demo "Jump in the Past." Soon after the demo sessions were over, the band went through a lineup change, with Coassin moving from keyboards to vocals, new drummer Enrico Fabris joining the fray, and Andrea Corona taking over keyboard duties. As their sound moved into a wider spectrum (and they maintained a continuing interest in progressive metal), the influence of Scandinavian melodic/extreme metal and the riffs and guts of metalcore and thrash found their way into the mix. They released their debut album, Tales from Sadness, on Arise Records in 2005 and followed it up with Flies & Lies, produced by Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Pretty Maids) and released on the Lifeforce label in 2007. ~ J. Scott McClintock, Rovi

The first time that I listened to this album, I did notice a lot of InFlames influence. However, to me, Raintime is more melodic. This album is solid and is a good pick-up to anyone.

Best DeathMetal I've heard in a long time! No! American bands don't suck at DeathMetal but European bands definitely does it better. Their melodic, tone, rhythm and balance far superior.

Honestly, this guy is one of the best singers (not screamers, NONONO) of all the bands I listen to. And I've heard my fair share.

I think the term "detail-orie n t e d " is quite appropriate. This is a brilliant band with a clean,tight sound.

VERY different than In Flames, Pandora.

I just wish I could like the vocals.

Their sound and keyboards reminds me of In Flames, but In Flames has made a staple in the metalcore/me l o d i c death genre. I don't really like neither band, but I'm just saying. Want screamo? listen to oldskool UnderOath when Dallas was their screamer, or listen to Hawthorne Heights, just to name a couple popular ones.

I really don't see the comparison to In Flames. Vocally they are very different. Raintime shares more in common vocally with bands such as Disarmonia Mundi, or others that switch between clean and aggressive vocals. There could be some comparison in the guitar riffs, but even that is a stretch.

theyre deffinatly on the same playn field as in flames

What the... well now I've heard everything: a metal cover of Beat It? That it was actually rather good is even more surprising, heh.

your stupid if you think their better than In Flames but they are good

Simply awesome.

@drinkingwat e r
You are correct, sir!

Qwert442,

You are making a huge mistake even ATTEMPTING to compare Raintime to In Flames. It's not about popularity/q u a l i t y . In Flames (along with Dark Tranquillity and At The Gates) INVENTED the entire style of music that Raintime plays (minus some of the proggy stuff). They have also been around way WAY longer and have released many more solid albums. THAT is why they get more recognition, not because of "quality," "popularity, " or any such flimsical reasons.
Report as inappropriate
Another Transition kicks a**! I hope I hear more of them. I keep getting In Flames songs on 2 of my playlists and then these guys came up and this one song is better then all the In Flames Songs I have heard so far.

Popularity =/= Quality apparently.

I have NEVER heard of this band before, and don't know anything about them, but I know one thing:

Tears Of Sorrow might just be the greatest song ever written. Period. It ROCKS!!!

Raintime is amazing. If nobody has listened to Scar Symmetry yet and you like Raintime check them out as well. Melodic ftw \m/
Also Nocturnal Rites would surely fit your tastes as well.

Dude, as soon as I heard this I thought Melodic Death Metal...Nowh e r e near screamo. Wise the f**k up. You're almost as bad as my cousin man.

@Weeping Willow XIII: What the f**k is your f**king deal, you piece of s**t. Why the f**k do you love Godsmack so much? They are a s**tty band in a s**tty genre. You would probably like Korn and Slipknot, even though nobody else does. Do you like any metal bands other than f**king Godsmack. If so, respond to this comment with a list. If not, as I suspect, then you need to go freeze to death at the North Pole. You should do this either way, in case you were wondering, you f**king piece of s**t!!!

for real though guys, just because there are screamed vocals, does not make it screamo...a genre of music is defined more by the....music . XD this is considered Metalcore of melodic death metal, not screamo...go listen to My Chemical Romance, Atreyu or something... t h a t is emo music.

Sounds like progressive metal(opeth, dream theater, between the buried and me) I just heard a song from them for the first time and I really enjoy it. I'll be checking more of their stuff later!

Excellent analogy, calomelx1; The Thorn is a great example.
Report as inappropriate
When you combine cookie monster with clear vocals the contrast works. A Great example is "The Thorn" by Leaves' Eyes.

I like it when they scream but regardless i still like a variety xDDD

Wow.. They're not screamo at all. They're melodeath, like In Flames. Maybe you're confusing hardcore punk for emo?
