TORRENTIAL RAIN have released their new single ‘Obstacles’.
Songwriter Chris Danner on the single:
“When life gets you down and you feel in way above your head… Then put on this song and let us take you on a wild and groovy ride full of riffs and breakdowns that are sure to get you headbanging. Get ready for another progressive metalcore hit mixed with saxophone and big band by Torrential Rain!”
The previous single “WHY DO I CARE” cracked 25,000 audio streams after 10 days and immediately appeared in the Spotify Playlists “Progressive Metal” and “New Blood.”
TORRENTIAL RAIN have released their second of four singles, entitled ‘Why Do I Care’, collaborating once again with Christoph Wieczorek (Sawdust Recordings/Vocalist of Annisokay) to mix the track and had the finishing touches in terms of mastering done by “GKG Mastering”. The final result will definitely blow everyone away who’s just eager to kickstart the live-season of 2021 and finally close the pandemic chapter!
Watch the video below.
The lyrics “[…] Say it’s over now […]” really capture the that desperate desire in a captivating way. “It’s emphasizing the wish for someone to take control and pull you out of your own head. More and more you’re realizing though, that the only person capable of changing things is yourself, so you decide to not go down without a fight.” – Christopher Danner (Frontmann)
In the video the band is shown talking through all the different business aspects of the music industry like maximizing profits, marketing finances or finding the right image. Further down the line the band tries to fit into different sub-genres of metal just to make Torrential Rain stand out. Only to lose what made them special in the first place along the way.
