Modern progressive metal unit Infected Rain experienced their most successful years yet in 2022 and 2023, and are back to own 2024 with brand new music. Amid their current USA tour with Wednesday 13, the band have announced their multifaceted upcoming sixth album, “Time”, out on February 09, 2024, via Napalm Records.
Following their most successful album to date, 2022’s “Ecdysis” – which garnered prime media acclaim, hundreds of thousands of streams and views, and debuted in the Top 20 on the US Current Hard Music charts – Infected Rain climbs even higher with “Time”. Described by the multinational band as “an homage to every fleeting second, every heartbeat, and every breath that has led us to this moment,” the album was once again produced, mixed and mastered by Valentin Voluta, and combines the deft talents of returning members Vidick (guitars, cover artist), Eugeniu Voluta (drums) and famed frontwoman Lena Scissorhands (vocals), plus introduces new member Alice Lane (bass) to the fold.
Today, the band kicks things off with an eerie, top quality music video for the crushing new single, “Never To Return“. The track flirts with trip-hop elements and far eastern instrumentation before bludgeoning with aggressive riffs and dynamic vocals.
Infected Rain say:
‘Never To Return‘ is our deep dive into the unstoppable flow of time, reminiscent of the shifting sands in an ancient desert.
Like smoke that slips through fingers, moments pass us by, leaving behind traces of memories. In this song, amidst the backdrop of the vast, timeless desert, we transform into ethereal creatures, exploring the mysteries of time. It’s a reflection on life’s journey, with all its fleeting moments, and a reminder that every second counts.

The band comment about the new album:
‘Time’ is not just an album, it’s a journey, a testament to our evolution as Infected Rain.
Time isn’t just a measure; it’s an ever-flowing river, a constant reminder of our fleeting moments and enduring legacies.
This subject resonates deeply throughout the record, offering to you a chance to reflect on the past, embrace the present, and dream of the future. With ‘Time’, we invite you to experience the phenomena of time with us, in all its haunting beauty and raw power.
