Review by Tony Cannella
In This Pain is a Female fronted Gothic/atmospheric metal band from Italy. They have just released their 8-song, 37-minute debut demo titled, “Bloody Tears”. For a first effort, In This Pain has recorded a pretty impressive demo, both in song and sound quality. After viewing the album art work and song titles, for some reason I had an idea that In This Pain would be a little more aggressive and brutal than I actually found them to be. I was pleasantly surprised by the pacing of the songs, the atmospheric nature and the melodicism that is present throughout the 8-songs. That is not to say that “Bloody Tears” doesn’t have its moments of metal mayhem and powerful guitar riffs – it has plenty of those. The sinister sounding intro “Dance in the Darkness” segues perfectly into “Alone in the Dark” a song with plenty of ambiance and a strong opener. “Only Dust”, the great “Requiem” (this song has a “Elegy” by Leaves’ Eyes vibe to it) and “Zombies” are up next and really keep the energy level going. In This Pain close out this strong demo, with the over 7-minute track “Bloody Tears”, which turns out to be a strong way to end things, as the song gallops to a forceful conclusion. After listening to In This Pain’s “Bloody Tears”, the end result is very satisfying for this cool band from Italy.
