Rainroom is a creative atmospherically doom death metal band that resides in
Finland. Their sound will take you to another world with their unique lyrical themes. Surrealistic and progressive doom/death from this intriguing and very interesting Finnish band. The symbolical meaning of the name is quite simple. The house has been a very used
emblem for human mind, especially in pop-lyrics throughout the 20th century. Houses have rooms, and a room in which it always rains, a morose room of sorts, seemed quite an accurate
depiction of the band members' feelings at the time of founding the band. And those devoted to metal music will undoubtedly be able to spot the tribute payed by choosing this particular
I would say that any music that strikes our fancy will eventually end up influencing our sound. A lot of influence comes from outside metal, from bands and people like Kate Bush,
Isis, Mogwai and all sorts of Classical composers, Dimitri Sostakovitsch being worth mentioning.
The lyrics are quite case sensitive, although we did release an EP about birds (the birds appear as a threatening mass). The music we do, and the lyrics we write, is not necessarily trying to teach anything to anyone. There might or might not be storylines. Mostly the lyrics are manifestations of the bad things living inside ourselves, and about finding ways to exercise these.
