"The structure of The Black Rain flows as an album full of preludes working up to the gigantic full band composition titled 'Finale.' As this finale comes to a close the attentive listener is rewarded with a soft landing called 'Fall Asleep' which brings the album to a close. Most of the arrangements for The Black Rain are comprised of strings, piano and organ. Pianos were recorded at various locations including a hotel ruined by the earthquake. Pieces from The Black Rain are included on a charity compilation titled More Hope For Japan and a Louis Vuitton iPhone application. The Black Rain was originally intended to be released in spring of 2011, but was withheld due to the title of the album and the provocative sadness, rage and hatred against apathy expressed in the compositions. The distribution of music throughout many districts of Japan was halted giving Anoice more time work on the record. Although the group did not originally set out to make a record which dealt with the theme of nuclear disaster everything changed after the tragic events of March 11th."
