New Album Writing/Rehearsal Sessions Resume This Sunday

The bands first full rehearsal since March can be seen above.

The band will resume the full writing and rehearsal sessions for the new album this Sunday. Writing as a group on the new album had begun earlier this year prior to the COVID-19 lock-down and had been postponed while the band could not rehearse. However, in the interim period the band has individually written new music for the album which will be brought to the group in the coming weeks with the ambition to record the album later this year. One of the new songs “Chasing The Train” was played live in instrumental form at a number of shows last year and can be heard on Bandcamp by clicking here.

This will be the first Kaine album to feature the same line-up on back to back albums.

The original album is close to selling out for the final time with just 30 copies remaining on CD. Once the CD’s are sold out the album will go off sale for good and become a members exclusive album only.

KAINE TO RETURN TO REHEARSALS THIS WEEKEND

The band will return to rehearsals this Sunday at Pioneer Music in Colchester. Kaine has in effect been on hiatus since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rage, Liam and Isaac will begin rehearsals as a three piece until such time it is safe for Toby to rejoin them. Toby has someone in the high group in his immediate circle and is being careful about when he comes back to the band. Toby has been keeping himself busy in isolation by recording a number of covers and playthroughs which can be found here.

In other news, with studios reopening across the country with the gradual ease of the lock down in the UK the band is currently working on the editing, mixing and mastering phase of The Waystone EP. The EP was delayed due to the pandemic however should be available soon. You can pre-order the CD for £5 here.

TWO YEARS SINCE REFORGE THE STEEL LINE-UP WAS FORMED

Today marks the second anniversary of the Reforge The Steel line-up of the band being formed. Shortly after the release of the A Crisis of Faith album the members from that line-up swiftly departed leaving the bands future in the balance.

Fortunately, members were recruited in relatively quick succession with Liam Etheridge joining in mid-April with Toby Woods and Isaac Healy following in May. The band played their first gig together on May 26th 2018 and have since gone on to play 43 gigs together having played major venues such as Portman Road, Colchester Arts Centre and The Dome in London.

In 2019 the band released a brand-new album called Reforge The Steel they began recording in late 2018 just a few months after the formation of the new line-up. They also released the live album and DVD Kaine X from the bands 10-year anniversary performance at Colchester Arts Centre.  There is a new EP and Live Album also in the works from the line-up as well as plans for another full-length album.

Toby Woods second anniversary with Kaine

Two years have now passed since Toby Woods replaced Saxon Davids as the lead guitarist in Kaine. He officially joined the band on May 5th 2018 and played his first gig on May 19th at The Smokehouse, Ipswich.

Reforge The Steel gets 9/10 from Metal Temple

Overall I have really enjoyed reviewing this album & I would highly recommend the album as one that you should buy either on digital download or a physical copy of the CD as it’s an album you will love to play loud enough for the neighbours to hear! KAINE’s new album “Reforge The Steel” is a great piece of Heavy Metal and it’s an album that I have personally bought today on bandcamp (I will include the link for those who wish to buy a copy.) If your a fan of KAINE you won’t want to miss out & if you haven’t heard of KAINE this is the perfect album to introduce you to the band. I would also recommend that you check out the bands previous materials too.
