Moldovan metal band Infected Rain has released “Fighter,” the second single and video from its upcoming fifth album, “Ecdysis” (Jan. 7, 2022, Napalm Records). It follows the first single, “Postmortem Pt. 1,” which was released in October.
The aggressive new track showcases the most brutal side of the band, bringing out its ruthlessness in full force with a hardcore-influenced tornado of rhythms and provoking lyricism.
Frontwoman Lena Scissorhands said: “Inspired by strong women who never give up, ‘Fighter’ is a reminder of the here and now! ‘Fighter’ is a reminder of strength and potential. Today right now, all you’ve got is this!”

“Ecdysis,” the follow-up to 2019’s “Endorphin,” was produced once again by Valentin Voluta.
“While the whole world was in a deep depression, ‘Ecdysis’ was slowly but surely maturing,” Lena said. “The time in isolation away from all our plans and goals, away from loved ones and the stage, brought out something so new and different in us. A new chapter starts with this album, a chapter of raw emotions and complete commitment.”
