Metal Talk reviews Burr Fest 2020

MetalTalk.Net reviewed Burr Fest 2020 *SOLD OUT* saying that “Colchester, Essex based Kaine got proceedings off to a rousing start with a thumping half hour set of steel-studded compositions which you just couldn’t not be impressed with. ‘Reforge The Steel’ is Kaine’s motto and although the heavy Metallica influence is plain for all to see, they cut it as their own entity with blisteringly passionate songs that they perform with a gusto.”

Kaine interviewed by Metal Talk for Burr Fest this Saturday

The event is now sold out.

Kaine were recently interviewed for Burr Fest by Metal Talk which can be read by clicking the links below. Burr Fest takes place this Saturday from a sold out Dome in Tufnell Park, London.

“It’s definitely been a period of rebirth and revival for the band with Liam, Toby and Isaac coming in and then writing and recording ‘Reforge The Steel’. It’s a cliché but this is very much a new band, but equally because of the calibre of the previous line-ups we’ve also still got a lot to prove to people and people to win back who may have written us off. “

Kaine announced for Burr Fest 2020 at The Dome, Tufnell Park, London

Kaine have been announced for Burr Fest at The Dome, Tufnell Park (London) next year. Burr Fest is an annual charity event, held in memory of former Iron Maiden drummer, Clive Burr.

“So here it goes! The first act announced for Burr Fest 2020, opening the bill will be… KAINE!!! Formed by frontman/rhythm guitarist Rage Sadler, back in 2009, the band has gone through various line-up changes over the years. One thing has always remained though – Rage’s determination to produce genuine Heavy Metal with conviction. Having recently announced their latest effort “Reforge The Steel”, the band have so far released 3 fantastic studio albums. With such a solid catalogue behind them, I’m sure Kaine are destined for big things, and it’s thoroughly deserved! I’m very happy to have them on the bill this year, and know you’ll all love their set! So make sure you head down to the show early to catch these guys!”

Andy Holloway – Burr Fesr

Originally a member of Samson, Clive Burr played on the first three Iron Maiden albums, before playing in other legendary acts such as Trust, Elixir and Praying Mantis. Burr died in his sleep on 12 March 2013 in London, due to complications related to MS. The early idea behind Burr Fest, began when promoter Andy learnt of the death Clive Burr, knowing that this would likely see the end of the fundraising efforts. Clive was a fantastic drummer, and being a drummer himself, Andy was keen to see Clive’s legacy live on. Unfortunately, at that point, he had no idea where to start. It wasn’t until he teamed up with Erwin Lucas, an Iron Maiden fan from Holland, in 2015, that a plan started to form. The pair released the “Origins of Iron” compilation that June, with no less than 8 former members of Maiden attending the launch party. The response led to Doug Sampson rejoining Airforce after 20 years, to record new material which appeared on the group’s career-retrospective album, “Judgement Day”, which was released by Andy & Erwin’s WatchOut Records.
