Ten years after the invasion of Iraq, retired headteacher, Geoff Dunsmore, travels to Basra to see exactly where his son Chris, an RAF reservist, was killed in 2007.

In Vain is back, ready for their 3rd attack of progressive extreme metal! “Ænigma” is their most extreme work to date, mixed and produced by the legendary Jens Bogren (Opeth, Soilwork, Borknagar, etc). The album contains 8 songs of In Vain’s unique trademarked sound and as usual, In Vain has brought some guests along, and “Ænigma” sees excellent appearances by Lazare and Cornelius from Solefald. Prepare to be amazed by In Vain’s strongest album so far!
Hailing from Madrid, Spain, In Vain are an independent 5-piece power metal band with thrash influences. They are by no means a new name on the scene, but have been plugging away since 2005, with a pair of demos and a previous full-length CD (entitled ‘Of gods and men’) already under their bullet belts. The self-released ‘In death we trust’ marks their sophomore outing, and represents the efforts of a band that is ardently seeking to make the leap to broader exposure in the international metal community, if only the proper label backing can be found.
While waiting in vain for her married lover to get a divorce, Fran Walker, a lonely chorus girl approaching middle age, falls for Joe Grady, a frustrated musician and compulsive gambler who dreams of escaping Las Vegas for fame and fortune in New York City.
