Red Cain Posts New Music Video “Zero” Online

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.

Mychildren Mybride Premieres New Song & Music Video “XeN0” From Forthcoming New Album “Vicious World”

Alabama metal outfit Mychildren Mybride premieres a new song and music video titled “XeN0”, taken from the forthcoming new album “Vicious World”, which will be in stores on October 13th through eOne Music/Good Fight Music.

Check out now “XeN0” below.

Says vocalist Matthew Hasting of it:

“The music video for ‘XeN0 ‘ features me being attacked and drained of blood by a vampire. We couldn’t write a song about a horror film, and then not use the opportunity to feature buckets of fake blood in the video. This was extremely fun, and at most times hilarious (my girlfriend is the vampire), to film. Big shout out to Nelson Flores and his team for making our vision come to life.”

Adds guitarist Robert Bloomfield:

“Lyrically, ‘XeN0‘ was written about one of my all time favorite horror films ‘Let The Right One In‘. There’s something about the heaviness of the song, and then the dramatic shift in the songs verses, that mimic the viciousness and romanticism of vampires. This is one of our favorites off of ‘Vicious World‘, and really feel like it encompasses so much of what we wanted to portray through the record. To me ‘XeN0‘ is the highlight track that sums up ‘Vicious World‘ as a whole. I wanted the tension to be well known and in your face, pushing and pulling throughout the entire song.”

Valentine Berlin Releases New Self-Titled Album

Ghoul rocker Valentine Berlin has released a self-titled record via Limelight Records. His music is reminiscent to Alice Cooper in many ways, but listeners of bands like Type O Negative, HIM, Marilyn Manson, and even Smashing Pumpkins will enjoy the record.

The ten songs that represent the album feature spooky sounds and infectious chorus lines. Berlin, the mastermind of Bob Dee (who many know from such songs as “Social Awkward” from his Bob Dee With Petro band) has created songs with such catchy refrain listeners will have a difficult time putting down the record. “Ghost Hey Hey” and “Dance With A Vampire” were both made into videos and can be seen below.

“Valentine Berlin” follows a tragic storyline: while driving along the Amalfi Coast in Italy, Val fell victim to a motorcycle accident that killed his longtime girlfriend Petra. Val isolated his self into the mountains where he fueled his pen with grief and sadness and wrote the 10 moribund tracks as a tribute to his fallen love. This dreadful story has been documented in a comic book enclosed in the album created by Japanese manga artist Ruyu.

01. Ghost Hey Hey
02. Dance with a Vampire
03. Bats Bats Bats
04. Sons & Daughters
05. Daria
06. Ghost Squad
07. Freaks & Geeks
08. Witch Hunt
09. Goth Girl
10. Salvation
