The album will be in remembrance of Wayne MacConnachie who tragically passed away that same day. Osmium Guillotine released a live album in tribute to Wayne which was recorded on the same night which can be ordered here.
[Wayne MacConnachie was a great friend and supportive follower of the band. He could regularly be seen at our gigs and was always the life and soul of the party, guaranteed to be getting drunk, having fun, showing his arse and generally making everyone in the room laugh.
On November 1st 2019 whilst travelling to play a gig at the B2 in Norwich, we were shocked and saddened to discover the terrible news that Wayne had taken his own life.
The gig we played that night was one of the hardest we’ve ever done, with having that news fresh in our minds. We’ve decided to release the full show from that evening in tribute to the memory of Wayne MacConnachie.

2) Through The Black Mirror
3) This Is Blitzkrieg
4) Phantom of the Opera
5) Only Famous
Wayne was also a talented musician in his own right, producing his own jungle and rave music under the moniker ‘Enjå Bergman’.
Over the years Wayne created Osmium Guillotine-influenced remixes,
using a combination of our music, live clips and snippets from interviews.
These have never been released publicly so we’re including them here,
they’re a good representation of the talent and sense of humour that Wayne was known for!

Kaine will release their new album Reforge The Steel this Friday via Bandcamp. The album art has been enhanced (again done by Kaine’s long serving artist Silencer 8) and updated for the release (above).
The band began recording in November 2018 (just 9 months after the release of A Crisis of Faith) and recording was concluded in June of this year. The album was finally mixed and mastered last month and is now ready for full release. Reforge The Steel was again produced by Carl B of Pointy Halo Productions alongside Sheldon Jolly, the same team who worked on A Crisis of Faith.
The bulk of the material was written between April and October of last year with many songs being staples of the bands current sets, two live versions of the album tracks will soon be available, the first being Kaine X Live 2019 (already available to purchase, just awaiting mastering) and Reforge The Steel live which will be recorded next month at the B2 Norwich (tickets available from here).
An additional live EP of the songs will be made exclusively available to bandcamp members next week. Members will also get 10% off the CD and additional merch for the album – to join as a member click here.
It’s the first release to feature the line-up of Rage Sadler (guitars and vocals), Liam Etheridge (drums), Toby Woods (lead guitar) and Isaac Healy (bass).
Kaine’s new album Reforge the Steel has today been finished with the final mixing and mastering taking place by Pointy Halo Productions based at Redwall Studio, Bury.
The album has been recorded by Carl Brewer again alongside Sheldon James Jolly who both worked on the band’s previous album A Crisis of Faith.
We’ll be issuing an update as to when and where it will be available to purchase.
Yesterday Toby Woods and Rage Sadler finished tracking the remaining solos and guitars for Reforge The Steel. The album will now move into the mixing and mastering stage before going to release.
Yesterday in the fan group (can be found here) Rage announced the plan for a special E.P. to commemorate 5 years of The Waystone. The Waystone was the second album from Kaine and was a very popular release that still sells to this today.
For the five-year celebration of the album the current line-up will record a limited edition EP with 4 songs from the album plus one previously unreleased song from that era of the band. The CD will come bundled with a brand-new t-shirt and will be recorded later this year.
Rage said: “To commemorate the 5th anniversary of The Waystone we’ll be re-recording 4 of the tracks from the album along with a previously unreleased track sometime later this year. In order to be able to afford the recording of this E.P. and printing of the new shirt, we have put up a pre-order link to enable you to support the release before we start to record it. It’s just £10 for both the CD and the shirt with 10% off for all our members.
As you will be aware, we’re nearly finished with the new Kaine album, the new Kaine live album recorded back in April and have yet another live album planned to be recorded in November (tickets available from Bandcamp for just £3.) so we’re incredibly busy, we’ve even began writing new material for a follow up album to Reforge The Steel… so please bear with us while we put together all this material for you! It will be with you sooner than you may think…”
This project is entirely fan funded, so you can contribute by pre-ordering here. The CD/Shirt package is just £10 to pre-order from here. Every penny coming in will pay for the recording/production – you can pre order here.
Kaine will be recording Reforge The Steel Live at the B2 Norwich on Friday November 1st. They will play the album in full plus a selection of other songs from previous albums. More details such as door charges, supporters and timings will be made available in the coming weeks – so please click “interested” on this event to keep updated.
In the meantime, the band have only guitar solos to record on Reforge The Steel before it can be mixed and then released. Rage is also mixing the Kaine 10 live album at present which will release after the new album on CD/DVD. In rehearsals the band is already working on its fifth album to follow up Reforge The Steel.
As a thank you to all those who attended Kaine 10 at Colchester Arts Centre, the tickets for that event will also be valid at this one so long as notice is given via e-mail to email@example.com. Spaces are limited so please e-mail ASAP to hold your tickets.
Rage spent last week in the vocal booth at Pointy Halo, based out of Redwall Studios in Bury working on the new album. The vocals have now been recorded for the album with only the guitar solos remaining to record before it can be fully mixed, mastered and then released. There has been a different approach to the vocals taken for this album which differs greatly from the approach taken on A Crisis of Faith.
Rage said: “I have spent a lot of time working on my voice to become a better singer for this album. I recognise one of the reasons many have dismissed us in the past has been the fact I am not a naturally gifted singer; I have always been more of a guitar player who happens to also sing rather than a singer first and foremost. I have put a lot more focus on the vocals this time, especially trying to improve my voice ahead of the recording, and having written the material for the album its been a lot easier to write for my own voice. Theres still a lot of variation in vocal style on this album and I hope I will surprise a few people also. Those who have heard it in its raw form have already been impressed and some of the live reviews coming back have also praised my voice, which is a nice change from the past.”
Rage after a week away, re-united with his bandmates on Sunday for a show supporting Twisted Illusion alongside Salt Hill at Whittles in Oldham before returning home on Monday.
