Canada’s Red Cain is finishing their “Kindred” saga with the release of “Kindred: Act II” this coming October; and to whet palettes in anticipation, the single “Demons” debuts here today, July 24th. The new song explores a demon summoning gone horribly right – lick your lips and embrace your inner beast with this banger of a track. Watch the video below.
Red Cain explains the track: “In what is becoming a tradition, we remember our roots and continue our romp through “Kindred: Act II” with this goth rock anthem evocative of the delicious, bloody melancholy of Charon, 69 Eyes, Lord of the Lost, with a touch of Sisters of Mercy lost between the lines. This was a super fun track to write and play. It flowed naturally for us, and we put it into music with minimal changes – and haven’t stopped enjoying it since. Best consumed ice-cold, on moonlit night drives, an eldritch, forgotten places – with bloody abandon. Feast, friends!”
The spiritual successor to the previous album’s “Juliet”, “Demons” hits hard and heavy in the best goth rock fashion, layering brazen up-front guitar riffs with a groovy electronic backing and pulsing bass line – the foundation to the age-old baritone-voiced gothic tale of a man looking to the dark side for power – and finding a wild ride.
Described as a vehicle of “Melancholy and Rage” and born out of the emerging music scene of Alberta, Canada, 2017 YYC Awards Metal Recording of the Year winner Red Cain is a power/progressive metal project with Russian roots. With intricate songwriting, a heavy yet melodic feel reminiscent of progressive acts, and elements of Slavic myth and Russian paganism in the storytelling tradition of the cult of Veles, Red Cain champion a fluid, dynamic, and unique musical style centered around telling dark, conceptual Faustian sagas and constructing those into an unforgettable live experience. If you love Kamelot, Symphony X, Powerwolf and Amaranthe and have never heard of Red Cain, this is your chance to catch up.
More singles are planned to be unleashed leading up to the expected release of “Kindred: Act II” this coming October 2020.
