New single "MARCH OF THE SAINTS" out now!!!
This is an unconventional song which came about in unconventional times.
With the new single, MARCH OF THE SAINTS, the Swiss hard rockers Rainforce are releasing a miniature rock opera. Throughout its three acts (Act I: The Awakening / Act II: The Retrospection / Act III: The Realization), the listener is dragged along through the narrator’s personal nightmare which allows for no escape. Starting off with a single man’s triumphant voice, Act II reveals that his is the fate of countless unfortunate souls as he joins into their shared lament before he comes to a bitter and humbling insight in Act III.
Borne on an ostinato riff and flailed forward by raging drums and hypnotic guitar leads, lead singer Jordan Cutajar perfectly delivers this stirring account with his unmistakable voice. The œuvre is capped off by the claustrophobic cover artwork which places the viewer’s mind-set squarely into the encumbering theme of this song.
MARCH OF THE SAINTS is being released as a stand-alone digital single only. – But you surely will agree that it would make a darned fine intro tape once Rainforce gets to hit the stages again, would it not?
Our gig @ HeavySanctum is canceled due to covid -
but don't worry: the `force is marching on!

Rainforce live line-up: singer announcement
Due to previous engagements, our lead singer, Jordan Cutajar, will not be able to travel and play Rainforce concerts outside of his homeland Malta this year.
So, we felt we had three options:
a) staying at home and writing new songs, or
b) playing gigs in Malta, or
c) searching for an additional singer who can help us out at the occasional concerts.
Well, we’ve chosen ALL of them:
a) Andy is working on new demo songs with Ano. (Admittedly, this isn’t ground-breaking news as Andy always has ideas for new song, haha).
b) We are really looking forward to our first gig on the beautiful island of Malta later this year. More information t.b.a.
c) But we are also happy to announce that we found an additional lead singer who enables us to continue playing gigs in and around Switzerland this year: We introduce Jonas Ambühl as the temporary vocalist in Rainforce! Jonas, of course, is the lead singer of the Swiss heavy metal flagship Gomorra and we want to send a huge “thank you” & “cheers” to Gomorra for lending us their awesome frontman!
Let’s welcome Jonas Ambühl to the pack!
Don’t worry, this is not a replacement of lead singers. But this is an awesome option to keep Rainforce a-LIVE and rocking, and Jordan has given his blessing to this interim solution.
Rainforce started as a studio project with many guest musicians.
And it seems the band works the same way in the live sector now.
