Recently the Metal scene from further South the Alps raises much more attention. Rain are from Bologna, Italy, and have obviously a faible for the 80s. Just like Priest or Maiden they have two guitar players who create massive riffs, and singer Francesco might be one reason why you have to think of the Iron Britains. Catchy tunes and choruses for several voices remind of Def Leppard, the groove could be like Accept - a good mixture of the best that the 80s Metal scene had to offer. Moreover, with "Rain Are Us" they give you some real sticky ear candy. The quintet also adds a portion of Sleaze and humour that is obvious in the lyrics of "Bang Bus" or "Swan Tears" - which is some more ear candy, too. Recommendable!
