About a month ago, I wrote a little piece for Metal Nexus in regards to the unearthing of the long lost debut album of Grecian prog/tech metal innovators, Acid Death. (Click here to check it out if you’re so inclined.) Not long after the publication of that article, I was in contact with Savvas Bettinis (vox and bassist for AD)about a possible interview with the band and after consideration, we decided on a more Q & A style due to differences in scheduling and time zones.

Hailing from Thessoloniki, Greece, Until Rain is the prog metal band that you’ve probably haven’t heard but definitely should if progressive music catches your ear in any shape or form. The sextant, whom have been together in various incarnations for thirteen years now, have honed their sound steadily over time, taking bits and pieces of whatever musical styling catches their ear, and mashing it with the long form/steady build up pacing of prog to formulate their own master blend. Until Rain’s third full length album, “Inure“, is set to drop in the US on May 12th and to give a little taste of what promises to be their darkest album yet, we’ve got our hands on the band’s visual accompaniment for the lead single ‘Because Something Might Happen.’ Thematically, the video fits the album and the song well. Dealing with a female protagonist that’s reliving the nightmares of being abused throughout her life, the nine minute epic track covers the broad range of emotional devastation and mental fallout that can haunt a survivor, and how just getting out is just the beginning of a much longer story. It’s a tough story to tell adequately within the time frame, but visually, the video pulls it off quite well as the images fit the band’s narrative and song like a glove. Until the launch of the full album, Until Rain has promised to be releasing new videos and teaser streams along the way.
