Calgary based Red Cain is set to release their debut album Kindred. Produced by Sascha Laskow (Every Hour Kills, ex-Divinity) and bringing in styles of Kamelot, Symphony X, Alter Bridge and Tesseract, this band fuses modern melodic metal with European roots.
With the album comes the first single “Snakebouquet”, which you can check out above. The song opens with a melodic setting before bringing in the dueling guitars. The single is prominent with the aspect of the fusion the band wants to incorporate. The vocals though have a flavour of newer melodic metal and definitely has a warm feeling of the Old European Metal bands with a symphonic feel.
The band comments,
“We are thrilled to release this music video for the single “Snakebouquet” after a long wait spent working on our sound and our debut full-length album. We filmed this clip at the historic Slaughterhouse Studios in Calgary, and worked with local filmmaker Zak Kelly, who did an absolutely killer job recreating our vision. With the “Snakebouquet” video, we wanted to capture the feel of our live performances and, of course, tell a story – a story of humanity’s reach toward the stars, powered by mysticism, bravery, pure will, and scientific achievement. We dedicate this song to those fearless men and women who have taken, and continue to take, humanity’s first steps into the void. The theme of human transcendence and the clash of old and new myths are central to our upcoming album “Kindred”, so “ad astra sine metu” – “to the stars, without fear”, and have a taste of what is to come!”
With their debut album set to release this year, we can’t wait to see what Red Cain brings out for us. In the meantime check out their Bandcamp for the single and the 2006 Self-titled EP.
I’m Phil and 27 years old. I’ve been involved with music as long as I can remember. I’ve worked as a backstage hand, stage crew, street-teamer with Union Events and various labels, been in and out of bands and started my own magazine; Attainable Magazine. In which I focus on band interviews and had the opportunity to sit down with names such as William Control, Real Mackenzies and I Prevail. As well photograph others such as August Burns Red, Silverstein, and Protest the Hero. Though I tend to gravitate towards the heavier styles; punk, metal, hardcore, and so forth. I do end up at any other show I can get too. I originally had gone to university to pursue broadcasting with a minor in photo-journalism but after a year left to continue to purse music on my own terms. If I’m not at a show, I’m either at a record store adding to my ever growing collection. In my free time I also model and practice body-suspension. You can always feel free to contact me on my other social medias.
