Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars The Argentinian outfit ACID RAIN was formed back in 2002, with Buenos Aires as their base of operations. They made their debut with the EP "One Night of Reflections" in 2006, and in 2009 the EP "The Single Line" followed alongside their full-length debut "The Descending Line", all of which were self-released by the band.

Compositionally and instrumentally "The Descending Line" is a fine example of progressive metal made in the Dream Theater vein, showcasing a band with a lot of promise and a good deal of talent. The lead vocals are something of an Achilles heel, however, and those who are sensitive to that aspect of a band's output should approach this album with caution. Those less keen on that aspect and generally more interested in and intrigued by instrumental and compositional dynamics should find this album to be a pleasant experience, however, and most likely a rather good production overall.

3 stars I found this rare record thanks to the site powerful search engine and due to that I am discovering loads of rare prog bands from my country and while some are delivering incredible stuff " The Descending Line in my opinion is not included among those records. There are many rewarding aspects in this record like the strong instrumental performance by the band or the production , but if you care too much about proper vocals you should approach this album with caution.

Among the pros found on this record I will list the opener "Doors of the mind" , "Time to plant Destruction" and the song that gives name to the album, Those are relatively short numbers by prog standards but this guys really show their prog credentials here. Mainly the band seems to be influenced by DT.

And now the cons... the vocals are to be honest a bit annoying. Specially due to the fact that the pronunciation (English of course) is a bit poor and the vocal style of the singer is a bit too 80's based. So that may not be everybody's cup of tea.

In the end we have a good and promising debut album by a young band , I am looking forward to listen to their sophomore effort to see what this guys can deliver in the near future. Their first offering I found it to be pretty interesting and energetic...
