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!

8) Breathe it in Son (OG Megamix)

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.”

Live at the B2 Norwich

Some gig footage from the other night with ColdHarbour UK and HyperFox for Brandi’s fund at the B2 VENUE NORWICH on Friday 28th of February 2020. Included are some clips from the night and the majority of our set. This is what a typical gig for us in the U.K. is like for us, so hopefully will give you an insight into what a typical night for Kaine is like.

This is a typical Kaine gig, warts n’all, so enjoy!

It’s good to be back! – First Blog of 2019

I thought I would write another blog following last nights gig at CALMival in Chelmsford. CALMival is Charity music festival with the aim of helping raise crucial funds and awareness for Mental Health and for Award-winning Mental Health Charity “CALM” (Campaign Against Living Miserably – The CALMzone). CALM is dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. The event itself raised over £500 for the charity.

We were on last, which is always a challenge at an all dayer as many people get fatigue from listening to music all day, and with mixed genre lineups it’s always tough to keep all the audience on board as your music might not appeal to a certain section of the crowd. However, in this case the majority did stay and watch us at the end of the night, and the atmosphere throughout was friendly and fun and the perfect gig to return to. I really enjoyed myself and you can see us playing last night in the clip above.

We haven’t played a gig ourselves for over a month, since our show in Birmingham back in December. It worked out timing wise to have the break as I’d become quite unwell with a flu that just wouldn’t leave me no matter what! I am still suffering with some of the effects of it, but I am over the worse. We’d still been rehearsing hard since that gig and putting a lot of time into getting the set tight as well as making sure we’re still in good playing shape ready to record the guitars and bass for the new Kaine album.

It was good to be back on stage again and playing both songs from the new album and A Crisis of Faith, and as I said I really enjoyed last night and am looking forward to playing again in March this time with Satan’s Empire at the Cart & Horses in London.

While we haven’t been gigging, we have been working really hard to push the 10 Years of Kaine show in April – we’re close to 25% of the capacity sold so far but we’re hoping to do even better than that come the night itself. The t-shirts of the show are being printed as I write this and will be available soon, and free to those who have purchased VIP tickets for the event. We’ve been putting up posters, posting flyers, promoting posts, running competitions and sending emails to help drive up attendance. The email we sent last week to 400 people who had bought Kaine merch from our bandcamp in the past, only 100 of which actually opened the email and not one of those clicked on the buy tickets link! That’s just an example of how hard it is to get people to engage online with the band, Facebook these days is hopeless, so we’ve had to branch out to try and find new ways to market ourselves. We’ll be doing a mailshot soon so those same people will get a flyer in the post. It’s our biggest ever self-promoted show so we must do everything we can to bring people out.

We’re going to resume the recording of the new album next month, however in the meantime the German version of the A Crisis of Faith album, which is being released in Europe through Underground Power Records, will be available soon. There will be exclusive artwork on this version of the album and a limited number will be available to purchase from us in the U.K.

As ever, thank you for taking the time to read this blog.
