After eight successful single releases in 2020 and 2021, solidifying TORRENTIAL RAIN's position in the international metalcore scene, one of the most innovative metal bands is returning in November 2023 with a complete studio album.
Weaving the enigmatic world of artificial intelligence into a mesmerizing musical tapestry, the album "Digital Dreams" by Chris Danner and his band transcends traditional boundaries of modern metalcore. Unveiling a captivating concept, each song's unique cover mirrors the fascinating experience of an artificial intelligence’s dreamworld.
Intriguingly, the album's lyrical content delves beyond AI, exploring poignant themes of personal struggles, hopes, dreams, social commentary, and relationship quandaries. The exception lies in the title track, aptly named 'Digital Dreams,' a profound exploration of the AI concept.
A tour de force of modern progressive metalcore, the album strikes a harmonious balance between intricate riffs and virtuosic instrumental prowess. Undeniably demanding yet surprisingly accessible, it gracefully welcomes both musicians and non-musicians. The multitude of nuances guides listeners through a journey, adorned with choruses and infectious melodies that beckon all to sing along.
Since 2020, TORRENTIAL RAIN has been releasing eight singles, reaching over 2 million streams and playing their way into the hearts of their fans and curators. Their songs were also added to several big Spotify-playlists like ALL NEW METAL, NEW BLOOD or PROGRESSIVE METAL. Well known Twitch-Streamer NIK NOCTURNAL added their most recent single to his Modern Metal Playlist and - together with NICK HIPA (ex-AS I LAY DYING) - found nice words about the band’s innovative, versatile, and advanced sound.
With motivation and power TORRENTIAL RAIN will be returning to stage in 2022 in style: As support for TENSIDE on their GLAMOUR & GLOOM TOUR they’ll be touring all over Germany alongside WATCHOUT STAMPEDE and CHAOSBAY. Right as the tour kicked off, TORRENTIAL RAIN also released their third album CHAPTERS, culminating all their releases of the last two years along several additional versions of them. In February 2023, the guys were on stage on the HEAT UP TOUR together with DEAD PHOENIX, MAY THE TEMPEST and PATHWALKER.
Germany's progressive metalcore newcomers TORRENTIAL RAIN catch you where everyday life lets you down. Romance, Break-ups or reflecting on one ‘s own life are just a few of the themes to let their fanbase located in over 151 countries know: You are not alone!
