Barren Earth is a Finnish progressive death metal band from Helsinki, and was formed in 2007. The group's music is a combination of death metal, progressive rock and some folk music, pulling influence from the different groups each member is associated with. Forming from the members of such well-known groups in Finland, Barren Earth is sometimes referred to as a "supergroup". Since their formation, the band has released one EP and two full-length albums.
Members of Barren Earth are or have been engaged to several bands among the years, including: Mikko Kotamäki – Swallow the Sun, Alghazanth; Olli-Pekka Laine – Amorphis, Mannhai, Chaosbreed; Kasper Mårtenson – Amorphis, Mannhai; Janne Perttilä – Rytmihäiriö, Circus of Flesh; Marko Tarvonen – Moonsorrow, Chaosbreed; Sami Yli-Sirniö – Kreator, Waltari.
Barren Earth has been visiting Tune Of The Day a few times already, a band that we really like and this is starting out good with todays tune.
Todays tune "The Rains Begin" is taken from the second full-length album "The Devil's Resolve" The album is said to contain even more 1970s progressive influences while keeping the brutality associated with the band. The Devil's Resolve is to be released on March 12, 2012
The Japanese version will include 2 bonus tracks: Martyrs Of Devotion and The Passage Unfolds, the former of which can also be found on the Special Edition, whereas the latter will be a Japan-only track.
Passing of the Crimson Shadows
The Rain Begins
As It Is Written
The Dead Exiles
Where All Stories End
Martyrs of Devotion (Special Edition only)
World in Haze (Special Edition only)
The Special Edition should in all likelihood be released at the same time as the regular version, but the vinyl will probably appear a bit later.
