In November 2021, in support of their much acclaimed fifth studio album – the futuristic “Ecdysis” (2022) – Moldovan progressive metal unit Infected Rain offered an exclusive concert stream, entitled “The Devil’s Dozen”. It was available exclusively online for only eight days. Now, the band fronted by multi-talented vocalist Lena Scissorhands – one of the fastest-rising leading ladies of the genre – will release their memorable live momentum that is “The Devil’s Dozen”, out April 14, 2023, in DVD/BluRay + 2CD Digipak formats via Napalm Records.
Following the previously-shared live version of “The Earth Mantra”, originally taken from their 2019 break-out album, “Endorphin”, Infected Rain has unleashed a new live performance video for “Storm”. You can watch it below.
Vocalist Lena Scissorhands says: “Storm is a song that holds a very special place in my heart, and I’m thrilled to share a live version of it with you. This performance was an unforgettable moment for me, as it was the first time I had ever played the song live. I poured my heart and soul into this rendition, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it. This release is a preview of what’s to come on the upcoming Blu-ray live show, and I’m excited to take our fans on this journey with us.“
Since its formation in 2008, the band has become one of the most exciting new acts in the heavy music world. Dive deep into the history of Infected Rain like never before with their breathtaking full show spanning the past 15 years of the band’s history, with incredible production and special effects, and including rare song material! Featuring songs such as “Freaky Carnival”, taken off their 2017 album “86”, and stage warrantors such as “The Earth Mantra” and “Storm” (released on their critically-acclaimed album “Endorphin”), the release showcases the band’s metamorphosis throughout the years and celebrates the group’s impressive career, songwriting, and live skills to date.
Scissorhands commented on the release:“We’ve all been waiting for this for so long.
