Sounds | Infected Rain, Lure
Twisted? Hoe komen ze erbij, de 5 uit Chisinau, Moldavië? Hun stijl is op z'n minst gezegd energiek en zéér 'vandaag'. Ze mengen diverse stijlen in metal en schuwen een stukje elektro (samples) niet. Charismatische frontvrouw Lena Scissorhands beheerst het screamen als geneen en is - wat dacht je - dè eyecatcher in de groep. Onderschat echter het muzikaal kunnen van haar 4 jonge medestanders niet.
Live te zien samen met Eluveitie en Lacuna Coil op 10 november in Trix

A combination of female screaming, hard riffs and samples created the individual style of Infected Rain.
