BioHailing from Auckland, Crimson Rain embraces the post-grunge era with heavy distortions, elegant solos, head-banging riffs, rhythmic beats and the sound that will catch hold of your mind. Along with these attributes comes true passion for music, any music in general. The band started out in May 2010 when Pras K (vocals, guitar) and long time friend, Avi Pranish (lead guitar) decided to pursue on another musical journey having played in a number of different bands over the few years. Along with Ben Lee (Bass) and Matt Bunce (drums), Crimson Rain recorded their first EP 'One By One' in August 2010 with a local producer in Ben Ruegg. Their first demo single 'Break' received substantial airplay on social networking sites namely Reverbnation charts, Facebook, Youtube and MySpace. In addition, the band received numerous reviews and support within New Zealand, Malaysia (Pras's home country), Fiji (Avi's home country) and India. Since the release of their first EP, Crimson Rain has played a number of shows in Auckland, building their growing reputation and also working on a new sound that would take them to the next level. The band took a brief break after opening for Bollywood Rockstar Atif Aslam back in January 2011. After months of looking and searching, Crimson Rain has laid down a new track with local producer/genius.. Zorran Mendosa. The band spent a bit of time on preproduction, layering and making sure they brought out the sound they've always wanted. The Mask Within was released on the 31st of March online via Facebook and Reverbnation. The song has seen Crimson Rain step up to a new level and on path to a bright future having received positive reviews from music listeners. Each member of Crimson Rain contributes in different ways with influences ranging from Pop and Hardrock to softer sounds, namely Flamenco and Classical Music. On the back of this, Crimson Rain intends to record a full-length album and take their music on tour in New Zealand, Australia, Asia and the rest of the world.
