Calgary's own prog-power band Red Cain drop their new single The Great Hunt from the band's upcoming album NÄE'BLISS, out everywhere on June 2nd. Accompanying the single, the band shares a music video filmed at their most recent live performance. The Great Hunt displays the band's cinematic influences right out of the gate, opening up with a haunting intro and quickly ascending flawlessly into the classic progressive heavy metal sound they are known for. The latest single off of the upcoming album NÄE'BLISS is reminiscent of Periphery, Kamelot, Mastodon, and others like them, seamlessly blending heavy melodic undertones with progressive power metal instrumentals and striking vocals. On the single, the band comments: "And now - the Hunt is on! With our last single for the upcoming album NÄE'BLISS, we are pleased to debut one of the heaviest tracks in the Red Cain repertoire - The Great Hunt. A stomping, driven ¾ march utilizing 8-string guitars and layers and layers of bass, this track pushes further into the djent riffs present elsewhere on the album, yet contains all of the usual characteristics of a Red Cain anthem - lush electronic backing, soaring, aggressive vocals, and a pulsing, headbanging groove."


Red Cain has released singles and videos for Blight, We Are Chaos, and Fisher King, giving listeners an indication of the band's reinvented sound. With Blight, the band moved the needle firmly into the progressive part of their prog-power style, delivering an atmospheric, chilling, and dynamic performance meant to mimic the unstoppable advancement of the blight over the land. We Are Chaos hits hard with technicality and groove, combining the melodic shadowy presence of Kamelot with the controlled aggression of Gojira. Unsettling, bombastic and unrelenting, Fisher King showcases a musical and lyrical contest of wills between the 'Chosen One' archetype, and his antithetical, flawed, yet lethal opponent caught in his unrelenting march.


The full-length album NÄE'BLISS is set to drop on June 2nd and is inspired by the Wheel Of Time series. An homage to the legendary world of Robert Jordan's fantasy epic, NÄE'BLISS, was mixed by Tyler Corbett, Sole Audio, and mastered by Alan Sacha Laskow, Perfect Filth Studios. With a grimdark edge, downtuned guitars, death metal influences, and an unrelenting march forward, NÄE'BLISS is a foray into the reverse side of the Wheel of Time story - that of the Forsaken, antagonists, instruments of the Great Lord of the Dark, and the brutal and captivating allure of letting Chaos reign supreme. On the album, Red Cain comments: "We are all massive fantasy fans, and for us, Wheel of Time rubs shoulders with LOTR as a genre-defining epic fantasy series that started it all. The world of the Wheel is a brutal, compelling world with multitudes of fascinating characters, and we were particularly interested in exploring its more visceral aspects - an area which begs to be paired with heavy metal. We’ve seen some of our musical icons, like Blind Guardian, successfully go down this path, and it was magnificent to see new musical interpretations of those stories spun out by them - not to mention some bloody good fun. Now, it is our turn to ride forward in another turn of the Wheel."


Born out of the vast prairies and snowy peaks of Alberta, Canada, RED CAIN is a modern progressive metal project with Eastern European roots. With intricate songwriting, powerful vocals, eerie soundscapes and strong electronic-backed groove, Red Cain champion a fluid, dynamic, and unique style centered around telling dark, conceptual Faustian sagas and constructing those into an unforgettable live experience, described as "Melancholy and Rage". They self-released their debut self-titled EP (2016) to excellent reviews, and followed this up with two award-winning full-length albums, Kindred: Act I (2019), and Kindred: Act II (2021) telling a sprawling conceptual saga, working with Sliptrick Records globally to have over 3500+ physical copies sold, as well as over 200,000 digital streams to date.

The band has hit #1 on the Canadian National Loud Charts on multiple occasions and is a 1x winner, 3x nominee for the Metal Recording of the Year at the YYC Music Awards. Music videos for ZERO and Juliet have won 17 awards at international music festivals (Berlin Short Film Festival, Venice Shorts, Hollywood Art & Movie Awards + more). The band has a strong history of collaboration, with a highlight being their work with Juno Award-winning vocalist Kobra Paige of heavy metal band Kobra and the Lotus, on the track Wing of the Crow. With the upcoming 2023 album NÄE'BLISS, Red Cain takes a further step into cementing their status as innovators and has sights set firmly on another ambitious and conceptually exciting project.

No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
