In Vain is a progressive death metal band from Kristiansand, Norway.
Formed by three young music enthusiasts back in 2003, the band has already released two highly critically acclaimed self financed EP’s; Will the Sun Ever Rise and Wounds. Will the Sun Ever Rise(2004), a three-track EP of unrelenting atmosphere, aggression and complexity. The EP was embraced by metal heads and journalists alike. Fuelled by the standing ovations and the great response from a united metal press, the band was soon back in the studio to record yet another, entitled Wounds.
Wounds was released December 2005. The music was more diverse, progressive and dramatic than ever, without sacrificing the brutal edge of its predecessor. Already at this point in the band’s recording career the strong musical craftsmanship is obvious with guest musicians playing saxophone, cello and percussion. Just like their debut EP, Wounds received fantastic reviews and the band was launched as one of the most promising acts in the extreme metal scene.
Their first full-length album, The Latter Rain, was recorded in DUB Studio (Green Carnation, Blood Red Throne & Chain Collector) in the summer/fall of 2006. The recording was a huge project involving close to 20 guest musicians and several guest vocalists such as legendary Jan K. Transeth (In the Woods…) and Kjetil Nordhus (Green Carnation, Trail of Tears). Although the band kept the same vibe as on the two previous recordings the music was taken a step further, in every direction.
