Aleksi Ahokas is known for his activity in bands like: HOLLOW, RAPTURE, DIABLERIE and PROPHET. In fact, after five years in PROPHET, Aleksi has decided to change the name into RAIN PAINT and it seems to have gathered some advantages. First of all, his band received soon an offer and secondly he succeeded to bring in other active members from other bands (FRAGILE HOLLOW, RAPTURE or DENIGRATE). I guess it is difficult to describe what we have here because of a massive fusion of various influences, from Gothic Metal and Dark Wave to Melodic Death, Doom or even Progressive Rock! In other words, imagine a mixture of KATATONIA, ANATHEMA, MY DYING BRIDE, HIM, THE CURE and TYPE O NEGATIVE. Vocals alternate between calm and extreme touches while guitars are either alternative or aggressive; the keyboard intends to develop a Dark atmospheric note but in the end... there is such a confusion! I am sorry for what I am about to say but... I understood nothing from this album. And here it is the label's characterization: Intense and Emotional Music! Hmmm, so it might be... but these guys have definitely a lot to work... to reach such!
