    Didn't see a post for this yet. I got an email from Raintime stating:

    I'm liking the little tidbit they've put up on myspace after a few listens (though it has that annoying "Pre-production" announcement in the middle of the song). Thoughts?

    I would have to say I like it and I would also have to say it sucks that i have to wait until 2010 for the new release.

    Sounds really good. I need/want more and now!:headbang:

    Has anyone else seen that Raintime lost another guitar player? They've gone through quite a few lineup changes in only a few years. Is Claudio a tough guy to work with? I wonder. He seemed so nice when I met him at ProgPower...hmm.

    Not bad. It could use some of their customary aggressive vocals.

    I want to listen to it but after hearing the stupid voice dubbing in it 4 times I closed the song. There is nothing that irks me more than that.

    I'm a big fan so I'll be getting the disc when it comes out.

    When you say voice dubbing, what do you mean? I'm not too familiar with technical aspects of recording vocals or even instruments.

    The song is interupted by a "You're listening to..." voice over.

    Oh yeah, that shit sucks.

    Best way for a band NOT to get played on the radio...put in those voice overdubs. Great job, record label! Two cheers!

    The overdubs are designed for in-record-store play.....which is funny because
    a) let's face it, how many record stores are left, and
    b) how many such stores are likely to spin "our" bands, like Raintime?

    yeah its stupid. Back when I worked at F.Y.E. I got all kinds of snarky looks for suggesting we play some of the metal bands we carried every once in a while instead of the same old r&b or pop-rock bullshit that everyone else wanted to listen to that we sold...

    we had a good bit of metalheads come in and shop too - so I thought their marketing skills were unprofessional and just downright pathetic.


    So yeah the voice dub-ins are a little senseless, but then again...we're in the United States - Im sure there are lots of cd places in Europe that doesn't mind spinning Raintime or other awesome metal bands.

    I worked for Best Buy and it was even worse, dude. They had their own "Best Buy Radio" CD that ran. And it was all shit. It really sucks when you start looking forward to All American Rejects (even though those guys write some damn catchy tunes).

    But back to the topic at hand...the new Raintime is promising and I want to hear a full, unadulterated song!
