Kaine’s brand new album was recently reviewed by Planet Mosh who gave the record 5 out of 5 stars. The full review can be read here. You can order the CD/Digital download from here. There will be delays in orders being posted due to the corona virus outbreak in the UK.
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.
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.
Kaine over the past four days have finished tracking the majority of guitars and bass for their new album Reforge the Steel, as well as completed further work on the drum edits for the album. The tracking again took place at Redwall Studios in Bury, Greater Manchester.
The team at Pointy halo Productions, Carl Brewer producing once again from Crisis of Faith with Sheldon Jolly also assisting with much of the tracking including writing contributions to the new songs for what should hopefully be the biggest and best sounding Kaine record yet.
The album is the recording debut with the band for Liam Etheridge, Toby Woods and Isaac Healy who have all worked with extreme professionalism throughout the process so far having only been the bands line-up since May of 2018. It’s also the first album that all three band members have recorded.
Kaine, now revitalised will now take a brief break from recording the new album to play a show in London at the legendary Cart & Horses as guests of NWOBHM legends Satan’s Empire this Saturday. The band will resume recording the new album as soon as possible.
