Modern metal experts Infected Rain reveal ultra-heavy anthem “Vivarium”

Author Arto Mäenpää - 12.1.2024

Moldova’s INFECTED RAIN return with their massive sixth modern progressive metal opus, “Time” , on February 9, 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”.

Trailing their successful latest singles “NEVER TO RETURN” and “BECAUSE I LET YOU” – which have garnered over a combined half million cross-platform streams and views on Spotify and YouTube alone – the band ushers in 2024 with the eerie, crushingly heavy “VIVARIUM”. The track boasts electro-laced djent rhythms and spine-tingling passages whilst frontwoman Lena Scissorhands warns of so-called freedoms that are not truly free. Band had the following to say about their latest single:

“VIVARIUM is about feeling trapped in a world we’ve built ourselves. A perfect world full of illusion, gimmicks and fake promises, like a beautiful but restricting glass garden. It’s about overcoming these barriers, and seeing through the thick air and tall walls. This song is for everyone trying to break free from their own limits and create their own path.”
