John Roach With the plethora of major metal releases this year, it is easy to miss potential diamonds in the rough.

Red Cain is a diamond. A unique sound coming from the Great White North that wears it's European influences proudly, while still maintaining their own flavour of metal.

Their sound is grandiose and ambitious. For the price of a Starbucks latte, you can have four epic tracks that challenge current Canadian metal trends.

Buy it! Favorite track: Hiraeth.

about

Red Cain is a concept album, with the tracks mirroring the four “Faces of Man”.

Guillotine is War. Dead Aeon Requiem is Ascendance. Hiraeth is Yearning, future and past. Unborn is the Primordial.

This album is a cutaway representation of Red Cain’s sound and a saga of the ongoing cycle of rise and fall of man, his Faustian war between his own serpentine Promethean urges and the ordered optimism of a virtuous transhumanist existence.

We were inspired by a variety of themes on these tracks, primarily pagan mythology, the occult, and transhumanist human ideals. There is influence from Slavic myths and hymns to the Sun-god, Akira Yamaoka’s Silent Hill, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time, and Lovecraftian horror, Isaac Asimov and Alastair Reynolds, and medieval conceptions of death and rebirth as well as pure, killer balls-to-the-wall metal.

We leave it to you to discover the references in the tracks or simply immerse yourself in our musical ritual.

Track Name: Guillotine (feat. Wolf of Transilvania)
Welcome, children of men
Your only choice is how to join me
Laugh and pretend
You’re in control of your destiny

This is the end
Forfeit your pitiful lives
Now bow before me
Can no longer deny…

I’ll be your final confession
Push you over the precipice
Into nothingness or purgatory, I care not
Everything that lived
By my hand will die

I am unmerciful death
Black guillotine
And no one lives in vain
The herald of the end draws near

Unmerciful death
Black guillotine
I will edify your sins
The curtain of your life draws near

You vile, filthy, wayward souls
Embracing rotten pride
The Morningstar, for all you are,
Has shown he was right

Your vile children of the Sun
Consumed by endless vice
Processions of prisons of flesh…

I am the kind gentle voice
To lure the unwashed mass
I break the fiction in your heads
I crave your ignorance

Empires will keep on falling
Your prayers remain the same
Devour the apple of discord
And soon you shall know my name

I am unmerciful death
Black guillotine
And no one lives in vain
The herald of the end draws near

Unmerciful death
Black guillotine
I will edify your sins
The curtain of your life draws near
Track Name: Dead Aeon Requiem
Snowblown garden
Fire in the hearth
Simple songs moving the silence
Wine, dreams, and mirth

White lands, soft sighs
And worlds uncovered
How could I foresee this violation
All of this devoured?

And I…
Hide…
From the light…

Tell me what went wrong
Was it me?
All my words

What lay deep inside?
Coarse whispers
That you hide

A wolf we have set free!
And it builds
Towers of red

Deliver me from your grace
To cerulean skies I’m wed
Unthinking
Comes the end
Unfeeling I descend

Dogs lick empty streets
Is it you
Calling for me?

Does it satisfy the greed?
Living deep
In all that you see?

On your throne of dirt
Under the crescent moon
Do they scream
With tongues that are split?

Destroyer, I am calling your name
Stand with me a moment
Look upon the human race

Centuries I’ve waited
Unlock the skies, I come
Dissonance and hope
Lead me on and on

Destroyer, I am calling your name
Stand with me a moment
Look upon the human race

Holding all the fire
Of creation in our hands
Breathing death and starlight
We rise

Destroyer, I am calling your name
Stand with me a moment
Look upon the human race

And the aeons call,
And their voice is fire
On the battered grounds of heaven
I - the only one alive.
Track Name: Hiraeth
Veles gazes east
Fire burns his eye
The wolf has no master
Except his savage pride

Where have they gone, the ring of steel
The glory of our fathers
In svarga’s halls yet burn
The fires of the Sun

Ho, Europa
Carpathian cold
The empires that have risen
The stories we have told

Father in the night, come take us up
Into the skies of old
The hunting horns, they call
They call us home

Into the lair of the beast
Through the Siberian Yule
Forests of sorcerous light
There we rule

Can you hear us?
Until our blood is cold
Can you see us?
The horns will call us home
Can you hear us?
Until the night breaks day
And Mara’s serenade
Is calling out our names
We fight...

Veles gazes east
Fire burns his eye
Your time has not yet come, my friend
To fall upon his scythe

So burn!
And rise, and be released
Into the skies so blue
Into our ancient war
And our verses true!

Can you hear us?
Until our blood is cold
Can you see us?
The horns will call us home
Can you hear us?
Until the night breaks day
And Mara’s serenade
Is calling out our names
We fight!
Track Name: Unborn
Still I whisper to the moon
“Send me birds of prey”
How many more can there be?
In a snowy mound my body lay
Nightmares born and leveraged there
For the truth

I have the power to provoke the shadows
Watching when we meet
Cold and black, baby don’t look back
We’re a dying, dying, dying breed

Bleed
Die
Hound of the night
Watching when we meet
Cradled terrors that you freed

Now, divide
Soiled sheets and eyes for lies
From your hands we'll feed
Artemicia
Star of venom

All the ecstasies await here
Dare to dream and fall apart
Among cigarettes and desomorphine
You find who you are

Calling me
Crawling here
All through my body, now I'm
Kissing the silence

Now I know...
Unborn
Unborn
Unborn
Unborn

Bleed
Die
Hound of the night
Watching when we meet
Cradled terrors that you freed

Now, divide
Soiled sheets and eyes for lies
From your hands we'll feed
Artemicia
Star of venom
