Rainwound has signed on to create a flowing prog rock arrangement of “Memory of the Wind” from the game Final Fantasy III for a project that is being put together on OverClocked ReMix. It is likely that this song could be produced later this year, or in 2014, and no details concerning the release of that album are available at this time.
Secondly, “Shrouded Destiny Complete” is planned for release in November 2015 and it will feature a recreation of ‘Shrouded Destiny’ which was released originally in 2005, and a sequel to that album (tentatively known as ‘Shrouded Destiny part 2′) to create a very unique double-album experience. That will conclude the story started in the first album — which concluded quite harshly with the destruction of ‘everything’. Obviously not EVERYTHING if there’s a sequel. That’s all the spoilers I’ve got for you right now.
Thank you so much for your support, and for following Rainwound!
Hi! It’s been a year. I’ve wanted to work on a new Rainwound album, but other obligations have gotten in the way. It is with great joy, however, that I present this Deluxe Edition of the United EP. You can find it at the original link, or easily click here to get to it.
What’s so special about this new version, you axe? Well, it has 3 instrumental versions of the vocal songs on the EP. Now you can sing karaoke along to it and become the life of the party. Enjoy!
Rainwound’s 4th release, United, is now available for download. You can download the EP with this direct zip file link. I will be releasing it on BandCamp, Facebook, and other places after I wake but I’ve set this to release on a timer… I am extremely happy with this EP, and I believe it is very strong.
The idea for United came suddenly on August 17th, 2011. The intro track recreating the USA National Anthem was created that day, and the following three songs were produced from then until September 7th, almost non-stop. I felt that it was something I ‘had’ to do, and I worked very hard.
This album is dedicated to those who fell on September 11th, 2001 and the families that have struggled since that day. May God be with you all.
