Prog-Power band Red Cain have dropped a new single 'We Are Chaos' and announced an upcoming album.
Canadian based group Red Cain have released a new single 'We Are Chaos' which is accompanied by a music video, ahead of their upcoming album 'NAE'BLISS' which is set to be released on the 28th of April. From Alberta, Canada, Red Cain combine intricate songwriting, powerful vocals, eerie soundscapes and strong electronic-backed groove with their unique style that's centered around dark, conceptual Faustian sagas. With all these elements combined it makes for a strong band and one with an unforgettable live experience. Red Cain have already gained considerable recognition with their self-titled debut EP (2016) receiving excellent reviews and the two follow up albums 'Kindred: Act I' (2019) and 'Kindred: Act II' (2021) both winning awards. The band have hit #1 on the Canadian National Loud Charts on multiple occasions and have been nominated 3 times for Metal Recording of the Year at the YYC Music Awards winning once. On January 17th the release of single 'Blight' gave an indication of Red Cain's reinvented sound leaning more into the prog part of their prog-power style. And now we get another taste with 'We Are Chaos'. 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. Upcoming album 'NAE'BLISS' is inspired by the Wheel of Time novel and is an homage to the legendary world of Robert Jordan's fantasy epic. The album which is to be released on the 28th of April was mixed by Tyler Corbett (Sole Audio) and mastered by Alan Sacha Laskow (Perfect Filth Studios).
"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's our turn to ride forward in another turn of the Wheel." - (Red Cain on the album)
