Rock The Castle - Live 2013

Kaine are a heavy metal band from the UK formed in 2009. In 2012 Kaine released their debut album, 'Falling Through Freedom' and a year later released their second album, 'Rock The Castle - Live 2013'.    
Recorded at the legendary St, Anne's Castle in Essex on 13th April 2013, 'Rock The Castle' captures the band at their blistering best, performing songs from their debut album and their 2010 E.P.    
The current line up of Rage Sadler (vocals and guitar), Dan Mailer (vocals and bass), Anthony Murch (guitar) and Chris Mackinnon (drums) perform with passion, as they storm through songs such as 'Lies Of The Forsaken', 'Violent Metal' and the instrumental monster 'Entropy - Unrelenting Chaos'.    
'Helpless Salvation', 'Champion' and 'Valnir' are solid rock songs, well worth their place in the live set. 'Quality Of Madness' and 'Waking Dead' both at over six minutes long are comparable to Iron Maiden in terms of composition, writing and catchy guitar riffs.    
The 'drum solo & jam' is well performed allowing the band to show off their playing skills. With so much on offer here, it is difficult to choose a stand out song, but 'Lost Sages Tower' will take that honour - a classic traditional (totally) British heavy metal song.    
Overall, a very good recording of an excellent live performance. If you want to know if British heavy metal is alive - here is your answer. Cracking songs, superb musicianship, great vocals and above all, passion, make this a must have live album for fans of traditional British heavy metal.
