Band Feature: Rainburn-Canvas of Silence

Rainburn is Indo-­progressive rock group based in Bangalore India. They informed me of their music and I was immediately impressed with their diversity and complex arrangements.

The stream provided are samples of each track so you get a good idea of where this band is coming from. Because it is more than one track and I was so impressed with this young band I decided to make them our first indie feature on the site.

Canvas of Silence offers "Refuge" and it begins with a reminder of influences from prog metal gods Dream Theater then the vocals kick in and you are further impressed by the range and delivery of that first passage. There is bountiful talent amongst the members of this band. I expect some great things to come from them in the coming years.

Our global communication and awareness is a wonderful thing when it comes to discovering new music. Click on the provided media player to get a taste of prog rock from India!
