The Waystone EP will release this week. The EP features 4 songs from the original album re-recorded with the current line-up and a brand new song written around the time of the release of the album which was never previously released. You can grab the EP for just £5 from here.
The original album is close to selling out for the final time with just 30 copies remaining on CD. Once the CD’s are sold out the album will go off sale for good and become a members exclusive album only.
The band will return to rehearsals this Sunday at Pioneer Music in Colchester. Kaine has in effect been on hiatus since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rage, Liam and Isaac will begin rehearsals as a three piece until such time it is safe for Toby to rejoin them. Toby has someone in the high group in his immediate circle and is being careful about when he comes back to the band. Toby has been keeping himself busy in isolation by recording a number of covers and playthroughs which can be found here.
In other news, with studios reopening across the country with the gradual ease of the lock down in the UK the band is currently working on the editing, mixing and mastering phase of The Waystone EP. The EP was delayed due to the pandemic however should be available soon. You can pre-order the CD for £5 here.
The bands latest album, Reforge The Steel, is close to selling out on CD and is now down to it’s final 16 copies. The album, which many have argued that it’s the bands best yet, was first released in October last year. You can grab one of the remaining copies of the original print of the album here.
Kaine also recently released a live version of the album which is also close to selling out with less than 50 copies remaining to buy on CD. Once this is sold out there will be no more made, and the album will become Bandcamp members exclusive after that. You can order the CD here.

Kaine recently gave a in depth interview with The Rock Den website talking about the origins of the band name, the background of the band, their influences as well as the songwriting process and work of the 5th album.
Today marks the second anniversary of the Reforge The Steel line-up of the band being formed. Shortly after the release of the A Crisis of Faith album the members from that line-up swiftly departed leaving the bands future in the balance.
Fortunately, members were recruited in relatively quick succession with Liam Etheridge joining in mid-April with Toby Woods and Isaac Healy following in May. The band played their first gig together on May 26th 2018 and have since gone on to play 43 gigs together having played major venues such as Portman Road, Colchester Arts Centre and The Dome in London.
In 2019 the band released a brand-new album called Reforge The Steel they began recording in late 2018 just a few months after the formation of the new line-up. They also released the live album and DVD Kaine X from the bands 10-year anniversary performance at Colchester Arts Centre. There is a new EP and Live Album also in the works from the line-up as well as plans for another full-length album.
Isaac Healy now marks his second anniversary with the band having joined officially on May 12th 2018 replacing Stephen Ellis. He would play his first gig with the band on May 26th 2018 at the B2, Norwich.
Isaac has since performed bass on the Reforge The Steel, and Kaine X live albums/DVD as well as the forthcoming Waystone EP and Reforge The Steel Live albums.

Overall I have really enjoyed reviewing this album & I would highly recommend the album as one that you should buy either on digital download or a physical copy of the CD as it’s an album you will love to play loud enough for the neighbours to hear! KAINE’s new album “Reforge The Steel” is a great piece of Heavy Metal and it’s an album that I have personally bought today on bandcamp (I will include the link for those who wish to buy a copy.) If your a fan of KAINE you won’t want to miss out & if you haven’t heard of KAINE this is the perfect album to introduce you to the band. I would also recommend that you check out the bands previous materials too.
