Hi again! This is how things are going in In Vain's world:

Hi everybody! Long time no see! The reason of all this silence is that In Vain’s world has been a bit upside down, but stability is here again.

As you know, Alejandro Sastre leaved the band, and then followed David Hurtado, and this made In Vain a one guitar band, which was a difficult situation, and more when the first album recording is ongoing.  
After some search and tests, we can announce a new band member of In Vain, Daniel B. Martín, and with him our power is intact.  

And to proof that the work hasn’t stopped, we have uploaded the lyrics of the last four songs that will appear on our album: Black Sands, Hellhounds, Hero and Rotten Cross.

Moreover, we have uploaded some pictures of our last concert, you can see them here.

And last, here is the link of another review of our demo Dawn of Misery, this time at The Sentinel. Direct link here (spanish).

We stay metal!




Line-up changes!

Alejandro sastre, In Vain's third guitar player, leaves the ship because of professional duties which were not compatible with the band activity. The formation will continue with five members, who will double their efforts for not losing a bit of power in live shows.

Good luck dear friend!
