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.

DAN MAILER TO REJOIN KAINE AS GUEST FOR 10TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW IN 2019

dmp

Dan Mailer, who helped found Kaine back in 2009 as the bands original bassist and co-vocalist will be rejoining the band on stage at it’s tenth anniversary show next April.

While in the band he released two studio albums, performed on a live album and featured on the band’s first two major tours, one of which being a Britain and Ireland tour alongside American Thrash Metal legends Mordred, and Wildfire Festival where Kaine played alongside Diamond Head, Lawnmower Death, Tygers of Pan Tang, Holocaust among many others. He also had the honour of replacing former Bruce Dickinson bass player Chris Dale, while stepping in to play bass with Monument on the 2014 Monument tour.

The Waystone, still the bands most critically and commercially successful album to date, was largely due to Dan’s contributions to the album and the overall songwriting process, which also saw the band briefly signed and professionally managed.

He has since played bass in bands such as Deep Machine, Daemona, Gabriel and Elimination as well as releasing his first solo EP, Introspectrum, and recently he has become the vocalist for long standing Heavy Metal revivalists and good friends of Kaine, Osmium Guillotine.

First review of A Crisis of Faith is in..

ACOFMail

“It is probably the best NWOBHM album I have heard since about 1984.”

“I know this genre is not trendy, I know it is not popular but if every single person who has listened to NWOBHM got to hear this album they would buy it and this band would be known the world over.”
