Infected Rain are kicking off 2024 with a bang. The Moldovan metal band — helmed by powerhouse frontwoman Lena Scissorhands — dropped ‘VIVARIUM,’ the third single off their upcoming sixth album, TIME, and the heaviest so far. The song follows up December’s ‘BECAUSE I LET YOU’ and November’s ‘NEVER TO RETURN,’ and offers a djentier mutation of the group’s singular progressive-meets-nu-metal sound. Crank it above via its high-octane music video. “‘VIVARIUM’ is about feeling trapped in a world we’ve built ourselves,” Infected Rain commented in a joint statement. “A perfect world full of illusion, gimmicks and fake promises, like a beautiful but restricting glass garden. It’s about overcoming these barriers, and seeing through the thick air and tall walls. This song is for everyone trying to break free from their own limits and create their own path.” [via Revolver]

Speaking about the new song, the band says, “when our paths initially crossed years ago, we were strangers and became friends, allies, sisters in crime… With the song Femme Fatale, we turned the tables, played with our own cards and established new rules. We set ourselves free from prejudice and limitations, embracing our true nature and femininity, regaining our power to stand as modern witches — resilient, liberated, we ARE Femmes Fatales.” [via Distorted Sound]
