ALBERTA'S PROG-POWER BAND RED CAIN DROP NEW SINGLE # ANNOUNCE UPCOMING ALBUM NAE'BLISS FOR MAY 19TH!
+++ OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE from RED CAIN +++
Last night, Calgary's own prog-power band Red Cain dropped a new single and music video for We Are Chaos. Go here to LISTEN or WATCH! Combining the melodic shadowy presence of Kamelot with the controlled aggression of Gojira, We Are Chaos hits hard with technicality and groove, and teases the upcoming album with the abstract gothic-inspired visuals the band is known for.
The band released a single and video on January 17th, for Blight, which gave listeners an indication of the band's reinvented sound and set the stage fiercely for what's to come. With this track, the band moved the needle firmly into the progressive part of their prog-power style, delivering an atmospheric, chilling, and dynamic performance meant to mimic the unstoppable advancement of the blight over the land. Watch the video for Blight HERE and listen to the single HERE.
Red Cain also announce the release of their upcoming album NAE'BLISS – out April 28th! Inspired by the Wheel Of Time novel series and an homage to the legendary world of Robert Jordan's fantasy epic, NAE'BLISS was mixed by Tyler Corbett, Sole Audio, and mastered by Alan Sacha Laskow, Perfect Filth Studios. With a grimdark edge, downtuned guitars, death metal influences, and an unrelenting march forward, NAE'BLISS is a foray into the reverse side of the Wheel of Time story – that of the Forsaken, antagonists, instruments of the Great Lord of the Dark, and the brutal and captivating allure of letting Chaos reign supreme.
On the album, Red Cain comments: "We are all massive fantasy fans, and for us, Wheel of Time rubs shoulders with LOTR as a genre-defining epic fantasy series that started it all. The world of the Wheel is a brutal, compelling world with multitudes of fascinating characters, and we were particularly interested in exploring its more visceral aspects – an area which begs to be paired with heavy metal. We’ve seen some of our musical icons, like Blind Guardian, successfully go down this path, and it was magnificent to see new musical interpretations of those stories spun out by them – not to mention some bloody good fun. Now, it is our turn to ride forward in another turn of the Wheel."
