RockmusicRaider - Kanseil - Cant del Corlo - Album Cover

Since we stumbled across Boscars, the first video released for Kanseil‘s Cant del Corlo, our lookout kinda had his radar in full motion to capture the EP once it dropped. And this single already intrigued us with its quiet and quietly professional airs.

Kanseil already got coverage for two studio records Doin Earde and Fulische on RMR. Both – of course – are fully plugged and more in a Folk Metal environment than anything else. And whilst these pieces are technically well done, they often still sound like a somewhat propped-up and electronically charged version of a … [...] Click to raid more!

Arven boasted this eclectic mix of Gothic and symphonically tainted, folksy Melodic Metal. A contribution to the metal multiverse that did not quite fit the mold – at all. And this is why the crew over here started concentrate ever more on what this band was all about.

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!
