Swedish melodic death metallers PLANET RAIN releases part two “The Fundamental Principles” of their philosophical album trilogy.
Since the inception in 2006, the Swedish melodic death metallers in Planet Rain have sought to redefine the genre and add to its fundamental characteristics, a new dimension of speed, heaviness and melodiousness. In part two of their album trilogy, “The Fundamental Principles”, Planet Rain delves even deeper into the philosophical matter of how the balance between life and death, earth and universe, and sanity and madness, is sometimes upset inspired by classical writers such as H.P. Lovecraft and others.
Planet Rain’s sophomore effort is produced by Swedish producers Teddy Möller (of Swedish prog metallers Loch Vostok) and Ronny Hemlin (of both Tad Morose and Inmoria), mixed by Teddy Möller, and mastered by Darkane vocalist Lawrence Mackrory.
After a couple of demo release the band appeared on major festivals such as Metalcamp in Slovenia, Rockstad Falun in Sweden.
In 2012 Planet Rain launched an album trilogy with the self-released debut album “Antichthon”. The album raised widespread recognition in the international metal press, and the band has appeared on major festivals such as the Getaway Rock Festival in their native Sweden. Planet Rain also kept busy by touring their local region in multiple tours of Sweden and the neighboring country Finland.
The band, who takes their name from Devin Townsend’s legendary album “Physicist”, have now teamed up with Danish metal specialists Mighty Music in order to release the next chapter of their philosophical journey into the world of melodic death metal.
