Oblique Rain biography
OBLIQUE RAIN are a progressive metal band from Portugal.Formed in 2004 by good friends Flávio Silva (vocals,guitars) and César Teixeira (guitars),the duo had a very clear vision of what they wanted to sound like and what direction they wanted their music take,but they still lacked other like-minded musicians for the group.

In 2006 they found those musicians in André Ribeiro (guitars) and Daniel Botelho (bass).The result of two years of experimentation,OBLIQUE RAIN released their first full-length album "ISOHYET" on Major Label Industries in 2007.Still lacking a drummer,the band utilized the talents of USS Studios session drummer Daniel Cardoso for the recording.

Claiming such diverse influences as OPETH,AMORPHIS,TOOL,PORCUPINE TREE,ANATHEMA,MESHUGGAH,DREAM THEATER,DEVIN TOWNSEND,PINK FLOYD and even DEPECHE MODE,OBLIQUE RAIN play original,melodic yet complex progressive metal and are highly recommended.

Review by Leviun

4 stars From the tail of Europe comes a progressive band sure to amaze you.

If you are looking for a Dark and Heavy band but Melodic at the same time you will surely find it with Oblique Rain. One of the few well-know Prog Metal bands from Portugal it brings to Portuguese Metal what it should have been brought before.

October Dawn brings you a kind of nostalgic sound from old progressive rock bands but adds a heavier and darker sound filled with melodic and beautifull parts. When I started with the "Soaring Alone" I just couldn't stop until it ended with "Darker Woods" (in my opinion the best song in the album). At a first listen you will only notice the whole sound of the band, you have to listen to it a few more times to concentrate on the various aspects of this album. the vocals play a great part in the song but the instrumental it's surely one of the upsides of this record.

To sum:

It's a must have album. It brings a fresh view on the Progressive Metal scene, showing the more melodic influences but those darker sounds define them completely and puuts them on a pedestal above any other "regular" Progressive Metal band.
