Before the Rain no Porto

Os Before de Rain vêm, finalmente, apresentar o álbum de estreia - One Day Less - à cidade do Porto, num concerto que promete ser especial. Será um evento sem banda de abertura com um ambiente singular e num formato algo diferente do habitual, onde prometem apresentar músicas em exclusivo. Apareçam porque vai certamente valer a pena!

The roots of [Before The Rain] go back to 1997, when vocalist Carlos D’Água and guitar player Valter Cunha started sharing musical ideas that eventually ended up as acoustic songs. As time went by, those simple and organic sounds weren’t enough to express the emotions and feelings unleashed by the duo and, in 1998, both decided to seek musicians to complete the band.

In December 2001, after solidifying their first real line-up, their first two songs - «Be Mine» and «You... My Ruin» - were recorded. Entitled «... And With The Day Dying Light» this demo-CD was only released to a strict sum of close friends and never properly distributed. In August
2003 the recording of a new song, called «The Swansong», showed another sign of life. Unfortunately around that session the group also went through a ton of changes.

A year later - with the help of Pedro Daniel on bass, Hugo Santos on guitar and Gonçalo Correia on drums - [Before The Rain] establishes their strongest line-up to date. Following a mini-tour with Irish doomsters Mourning Beloveth in their home country of Portugal, the five musicians finally find the spark needed to pick up the composition process again and the debut full-length album finally starts taking shape. Recorded by João Bacelar and mastered at the Cutting Room Studios, in Sweden, by Thomas Eberger (famous for his work with bands like Katatonia, Opeth, Daylight Dies and label mates Process Of Guilt), this collection of six songs promise, not only to embrace the listener gently with evocative melodies, but also to punish with monolithic riffs and mesmerizing feedbacks. Both crushing and incredibly emotional, «One Day Less» is an amazing sonic journey through highs and lows - combining the beautiful acoustic textures of their beginnings with a heavy sensibility firmly rooted in the doom/death metal realm.
