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.
