Red Cain - NÄE'BLISS


Upcoming Release:

Calgary-based metal band Red Cain is set to release their latest album “NÄE'BLISS” on June 2nd, 2023, and fans are eagerly anticipating the band’s third full-length album. The band's newest single, “The Great Hunt”, is the last to be released before the album launch and is one of the heaviest tracks in the Red Cain repertoire.
The band is known for their signature lush electronic backing, soaring, aggressive vocals, and a pulsing, headbanging groove, all of which are present in “The Great Hunt”. The ¾ march is driven by layers of bass and 8-string guitars, pushing further into the djent riffs present elsewhere on the album. The single is a nod to Robert Jordan’s fantasy epic, "The Wheel of Time," as it revolves around the album’s theme continuing the Forsaken protagonists' hunt for their archenemy, the world-breaking Champion of the Light, the Dragon Reborn himself.
Red Cain's third full-length album “NÄE'BLISS” is a homage to the legendary world of Robert Jordan's fantasy epic. The album features down-tuned guitars, death and power prog metal influences, and an unrelenting march forward that's a foray into the reverse side of the Wheel of Time story. It explores the world of the Forsaken, the antagonists, instruments of the Great Lord of the Dark, and the brutal and captivating allure of letting Chaos reign supreme.
According to the band, “We are fascinated by antagonists, why they stand against the “common good”, and how they came to fill that role - and when reading the Wheel of Time, there was the same intrigue behind how the very clearly defined “evil” faction in this world justified its existence."
Red Cain's "NÄE'BLISS" explores questions that apply equally well to the world beyond the window. The band delves deeper into the unexplored gaps of the carefully crafted narrative and beautifully balanced universe of the Wheel of Time. The album looks at which idols are false, which heroes degenerate, and what history is a compendium of careful lies.
The band is excited about exploring the more visceral aspects of the Wheel of Time world. The album pairs the brutal and compelling world with heavy metal, a genre-defining epic fantasy series that started it all. Red Cain is recommended for fans of Kamelot, Symphony X, Myrath, Powerwolf, Mastodon, and The Contortionist.
Red Cain’s “NÄE'BLISS” is set to be released on June 2, 2023. Fans can watch and listen to “The Great Hunt” via its live video at
