Inure, the epic third album by Greek alternative/progressive metal act, UNTIL RAIN, is out in the US today through Sensory Records.
The stateside street date for Inure follows the album’s recent European release in late April, which was tied into UNTIL RAIN’s European tour supporting Laser’s Edge Group labelmates Wolverine and Oddland. UNTIL RAIN is currently still out on the road, on their second tour in support of their new album, this time through the Balkan countries with Poem, the final three shows happening in Bucharest tonight, Belgrade tomorrow, and the band’s hometown of Thessaloniki on Sunday. Additional tour dates will be announced in the weeks ahead.
UNTIL RAIN has also issued a new video for the album’s “This Solitude” which fuses elements of a lyric video with artwork creation, playthrough/performance footage, and more.

With Inure, UNTIL RAIN’s first album since 2013’s well-received Anthem To Creation finds them exploring the dark world of psychological/emotional abuse, loss, and doubt and it presents the darkest side of the band thus far. Inure was recorded by UNTIL RAIN in various European cities, including Thessaloniki, London, Gothenburg, and Lausanne, and mixed/mastered by Daniel Cardoso of Anathema in Lisbon, Portugal (Anneke Van Giersbergen, Anathema, Head Control System). The album features beautiful artwork by the new Greek artist/designer Nassia Kefala, and a hand-drawn cover that completely represents the concept of the album and the duality of many inured people; appearing lush on the outside, yet they are rotted inside. With nine massive tracks, Inure presents an hour-long journey that you will want to take again and again, the digital release bearing an additional bonus track as well.
