Acid Rain biography
ACID RAIN are an Argentinian progressive metal act formed in 2002 in Buenos Aires by bassist Ezequiel Giménez and guitarist Ariel Mascia. They were later joined by drummer Martín Magliano and keyboard player Andrés Blanco. ACID RAIN recorded the "One Night Of Reflections" and the "Shadows" demo with lead vocalist Fabián Gonzalez. In 2004 guitarist and founding member Ariel Mascia left ACID RAIN but the remaining members decided to carry on. With a new lead vocalist in Sebastián Fernández and a new guitarist in Mariano Revilla, the band decided to re-record "One Night Of Reflections" and release it as an EP. ACID RAIN released their debut full-length studio album "The Descending Line" in September 2009. Guitarist Mariano Revilla left ACID RAIN shortly after the recording of "The Descending Line" and was replaced by Fernando Culen.

The inclusion of ACID RAIN to the Prog Archives database was approved by the Progressive Metal Team.

4 stars Argentinian outfit ACID RAIN has existed since the '90s, with two EPs and two full length productions to their name so far. "Shallow Paradise" is the latest of these, and was released in 2011.

Accessible, melodic progressive metal is the name of the game on "Shallow Paradise", a solid set of compositions I suspect will be found more interesting outside of the progressive rock oriented crowd than within it. The lack of challenging features is an aspect I surmise will be regarded as negative by the latter and positive by the former. All in all a promising disc by a talented band that appears to be developing quite nicely, and time will have to tell in what direction they will continue their musical endeavors.

2 stars The sophomore effort from Argentinean band Acid Rain is a rather dissapointing surprise from if you take into account their promising debut album. Seems the band has abandoned their progressive metal influences and now is focused into a more mainstream metal kind of sound including a shorter format of songs , less change in dynamics and less participation of the keyboards in the overall sound.

And as if it weren't enough , the old problems from their first album are still there: The vocals are really poor and the songs sound more or less the same with the exeption of 2 (forgettable) ballads. There are truly no highlights on this record , it starts to wear off after 2 or 3 listens so I can only recomend "Shallow Paradise" to the fans of the band since, progressive metal you won't find it here.

I had really high expectations after the promising debut but let's hope the band focuses for the next time and delivers a much better album.

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...

Review by Windhawk

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.

Thanks to UMUR for the artist addition.
