Our Music

Born out of the vast prairies and snowy peaks of Alberta, Canada, Red Cain is a modern progressive metal project with Eastern European roots. With intricate songwriting, powerful vocals, eerie soundscapes and strong electronic-backed groove, Red Cain champion a fluid, dynamic, and unique style centered around telling dark, conceptual Faustian sagas and constructing those into an unforgettable live experience.

Described by frontman Evgeniy Zayarny as a vehicle of “Melancholy and Rage”, Red Cain delivers power, flair, thematic Slavic influence, and intricate, lethal edge in their work. Listeners might well pick out elements reminiscent of such luminary acts as Kamelot, Symphony X, Powerwolf, Lord of the Lost, whipped into a venomous new shape. 

Red Cain released their debut self-titled EP in North America in 2016 to excellent reviews, and followed this up with two award-winning full length albums, “Kindred: Act I” in 2019, and “Kindred: Act II” in 2021, with over 3500+ physical copies sold and 250,000 streams. The band has hit #1 on the Canadian National Loud Charts on multiple occasions, and is a 1x winner, 4x nominee for the Metal Recording of the Year at the YYC Music Awards.   

Red Cain has created 13 videos and won 17 awards at international music festivals, including the Berlin Short Film Festival, Venice Shorts, Global Shorts, IndieX FilmFest, AIFF, Hollywood Art & Movie Awards, among others. 

The band has a strong history of collaboration, with a highlight being our work with Juno Award-winning vocalist Kobra Paige of heavy metal band Kobra and the Lotus, on the track “Wing of the Crow”.
