Born out of the emerging metal scene of Calgary, AB, Red Cain is a modern melodic metal project with European roots. With intricate songwriting, a heavy yet melodic feel reminiscent of progressive acts, and eerie ambient elements, 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. Listeners might well pick out elements reminiscent of such luminary acts as Kamelot, Symphony X, Tesseract, Draconian, Marilyn Manson, whipped into a venomous new shape.
With the release of their first full-length “Kindred: Act I” on the horizon (March 1, 2019), Red Cain are proud to premiere their first full music video for “Zero” via EverythingIsNoise.
For this video, the Red Cain collaborated with world-class director Rik Zak and cinematographer Jun Ren to recreate their own vision of the vampire myth based on the tale of Osiris – the Egyptian god of the dead – and incorporated this vision into the concept behind the album itself.
Filmed in the dystopian and inhospitable badlands of Drumheller, Alberta, the story-driven video features Red Cain frontman Evgeniy Zayarny alongside R.A.V. – vocalist of power metal collective Ravenous, in the main roles, and follows the track’s lyrical content in exploring the relationship between fate and free will, success and failure, the search for immortality – and an inglorious death.
With the video of “Zero”, they travel to ancient Egypt – dry, scorched, old as time, built on top of dead empires; littered with secrets and the devoured remains of hundreds of gods.
Red Cain’s debut full length “Kindred: Act I” was produced by Sascha Laskow (Every Hour Kills, ex-Divinity) with the band at Perfect Filth Studios and features guests Kobra Paige (Kobra And The Lotus), Daniel Louden (Benevolent Like Quietus) and guitarist Tyler Corbett. The album’s artwork was done by Timur Khabirov with cover design by Igor Zayarny.
