ALBUM A CRISIS OF FAITH
OUT 2018 (February)
OUR RATING 82/100
Four years after THE WAYSTONE, KAÍNE is ready to return with a new full-length called CRISIS OF FAITH.
This 3rd studio album comes with an amazing cover and 10 tracks and it seems various and complete.
It starts with HEAVEN'S ABANDONMENT which, after a soft intro, develops itself in a classic HM, with right inspiration and melody.
With FALL OF JERICHO and with its stunning intro that sees the entry one by one of bass, guitar and drums, this album gets to the heart.
A NIGHT MEETS DEATH is a great tune, proud of NWOBHM's roots but looking to the future, thanks to its modern cut.
The title track, over 6 min duration, starts strong and turns it into an interesting tune.
AFTERLIFE begins with a great arpeggio and it's an heavier song; surely various and enhanced from a superlative vocal performance.
With FRAILITY OF THE BLADE the band returns to own iron gallop; a track right focused with a great fast solo.
VOICE IN HELL is great, a bit modern, but in long run convince us.
BEHIND THE PREACHER'S EYES, is more direct and less modern and it's marked from great runaways and pressing bass guitar.
THE MIND IS WILLING and ALONE (IN MY FORGOTTEN RAGE), end at their best this 3rd chapter of their career.
KAÍNE's return is a great combination of classic roots well mixed with a modern touch; we can say that outcome is surely to be welcomed!
