Pierpaolo “Zorro” Monti says: "Forever Gone" is a very special song that I begun writing during the sessions of my Shining Line debut.  I continued writing the song with the idea of making an album in the style of “The Storm”, so I asked Dave to add a few parts to complete its structure, and recorded the first demo the same day. We were very excited with the final result!  Raintimes is the album that I really wanted to use as a sort of tribute to my love and admiration for “The Storm.” I have played to death their two albums (especially “Eye of the Storm”). Their tempos, steeped in pure melodic class, are the perfect crossroad between AOR and Melodic Rock. The choice of Shotton as frontman was based not only on my love for his talents, but because I wanted to give a strong personality to the album and make the music more personal and original.”
