RockmusicRaider - Red Cain - Kindred: Act I - Album Cover

Do you remember Red Cain and their 2019 hot metal piece Kindred: Act I?

Well, for those who don’t, the band hails from Canada. And they famously made us work more on their stuff than was absolutely necessary. And it looks like they’re gonna continue doing that in 2020.

But – of course – it is all for a good cause. Because they not only got on our radar for their first EP but the band actually made it onto the 2019 Top 10 list as well. And – to the dismay of weightier bands – Red Cain reached … [...] Click to raid more!

If their tune is worthy of its dark … [...] Click to raid more!

Bartłomiej Krysiuk’s Batushka and the missing live gigs!

RockmusicRaider - Bartłomiej Krysiuk's Batushka - Hospodi - Missing Gigs and an impostor

The RMR blog covered the on-going Batushka controversy pretty closely so far. For those who were out of the loop for a while, here’s a quick rundown.

At first, we had a stellar Black Metal album – Litourgyia – that took the genre by storm. It led to a pretty fulminant success of a previously unknown band from Poland.

As is often the case, success (and money) rose to people’s heads, so all those loving bonds were canceled and a truly nasty divorce initiated. Quite unsurprisingly, this ended up in court, with a final decision still out there somewhere. In … [...] Click to raid more!
