ShamRain

Shamrain from Finland creates dark atmospheric rock blended with ethereal, dreamlike soundscapes.

In October 2000 Matti and Janne come up with an idea of a band playing slow, dreamlike material. During the winter, some songs were written and recorded. As they needed someone to vocalize their words scribbled down in distress, they asked Mika to try it out.

Shamrain from Finland creates dark atmospheric rock blended with ethereal, dreamlike soundscapes.

In October 2000 Matti and Janne come up with an idea of a band playing slow, dreamlike material. During the winter, some songs were written and recorded. As they needed someone to vocalize their words scribbled down in distress, they asked Mika to try it out. Mika’s voice fitted the music perfectly and in autumn 2001 this trio gave birth to the first ShamRain release. Pieces EP saw the light of day the next February. In 2002 more songs were written and the first permanent guitarist, Kalle, joined the band. Later the band signed a deal with Watch Me Fall Records. The recordings of the debut album, Empty World Excursion, took place during the summer and autumn 2003. By this time, the band’s music evolved into a combination of dark melancholic rock and slow, ethereal elements. EWE is put out by WMF in December and gains a lot of good reviews. The following year, the band recorded a few unused songs written for EWE and a The Cure cover song. These were released on a The Cure tribute album and a 7” vinyl, simply called the Shamrain EP. New songs were written during the spring and summer. In autumn 2004, demo sessions for the 2nd album began and 13 new songs were recorded. At this time a second guitarist, Mikko, was recruited to enforce the band. The deal with WMF dissolves and a new deal was made with Firebox Records. In December recordings of a new album finally started at Akun Tehdas and the sessions stretched to last almost 4 months, before getting the final touch at FinnVox studios. « hide
