Rain was the first project of Drop C, the founding member of Sybreed. He recorded his first (entirely instrumental) demo in 1997, when he was only 13 years old. Year later, he found a vocalist and recorded the first full-length album, "Sephiroths". By the time when their second album, "Natural Order", was released, they became a 4-piece band. "Starlight Extinction" is their third and the last album before Void and Drop C left the band to form Sybreed. Surely it isn't the best industrial metal out there, but I like this album more than any of the works by Sybreed - maybe because it's more influenced by late-90's "dark metal" bands (such as their compatriots Samael) than modern MDM and groove metal.
