Inspired By Soviet Era Posters, RED CAIN Share Lyric Video “All Is Violence” via MetalMasterKingdom
Debut Album “Kindred: Act I” Out Now
Performing On Vancouver’s Hyperspace Metal Festival April 27th
Inspired by Soviet-era posters, Calgary’s RED CAIN have put together a visually thrilling lyric video for their track “All Is Violence” off their debut album “Kindred: Act I”released this past March.
Teaming up with MetalMasterKingdom, the band is premiering the video at the following link: https://www.metalmasterkingdom.com/home/red-cain-premiere-lyric-video-for-all-is-violence
Vocalist Evgeniy Zayarny adds:
“Visually inspired by Soviet propaganda posters, with images brilliantly designed by Igor Zayarny, ‘All Is Violence’ is a lethal offensive tying pagan Russian conceptions of righteous and sinful violence as championed by pagan gods Veles and Morana to an examination of violence in the modern era, backed by thunderous drums and downtuned, aggressive guitar work. The lyric video doubles as an introduction to individual Red Cain band members, with individual and group photos taken by Quay Evano. Fire, reload, step forward, and wrestle with your bestial nature because -‘All Is Violence’.”
RED CAIN first 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.
The band has shared a few other videos in support of the debut album. Their music video for “Zero” recently won the Award of Recognition in the Best Music Video category at the Accolade Global Film Competition in Los Angeles.

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.
In additional news, RED CAIN will be performing on this year’s Hyperspace Metal Festival in Vancouver, BC for the second night of the event on April 27th at the Rickshaw Theatre alongside Crimson Shadows, Judicator and many more. Full details and line up can be found here.

“Overall, this was a very original album. I find it very difficult to locate a counterpart for RED CAIN, as they have clearly created their own sound in the genre. What we have here is a two headed beast of sad and melancholy music on one side and angry and raging music on the other. The two combine somewhere in the middle with flair for the dramatic and impassioned vocals. This is definitely worth your time if you are looking for something off the beaten path.” – Metal Temple
“Symphonic progressive metal with alternative and gothic nuances – Red Cain are well on their way to establishing new territory in story telling and musical match-ups. Kindred: Act I represents a fine opening album for these Canadians, and should lend itself well to various multi-media opportunities for live show and film options. The best records connect on a mind, body, and spirit level – and this will be one that should be in the conversation for visionary, forward-thinking effort, proving the ink is not dry on what metal can bring to the table for innovation.” – Dead Rhetoric
“Kindred: Act I is all about raw and unbridled metal power. A thoughtful brand of metal that – for once – does not base itself on mindless growling about the stage along normal lines of metal conduct. Instead they rip the established status quo to pieces and attack with a very unusual metal dish. One that comes with a distinct groove to boot… a very tasty fusion of Progressive and Power Metal that we have rarely seen to date. A metal dish best consumed red-hot. Have some, you will not regret it.” – Rock Music Raider
