Leo is one of the most important name of gothic/rock scene in Milan and
in Italy in general..on 17th January
of this year…he has departed this life; an incurable disease
took him away from this life…and this is one of the most terrible
thing heard in this beginning of 2013; his carrier begun with Cristina
Scabbia & Lacuna Coil…and I cannot forget the ep made in 1999….
Cayne made his debut in 2002 with a very good album…but nothing more
followed after that album…The band came back in 2012 with the
single “Addicted” made
up of four songs…and listening to that ep…we couldn’t but craving
for the whole album…
has left a very awesome album that will be forever…and I hope he
won’t be never forgotten…
The album is here and is a masterpiece that is very difficult to define;
the band has picked up a lot of influences and the outcome is
nothing but a very great masterpiece of good music….
In these songs I can see the best of 80’s hard rock/ metal…modern
metal and gothic rock…hence…we can only buy it!
Let’s start and exanimate the songs …
“Waiting” is pure gothic rock characterized by a very wonderful
melody that is the result of their influences…Giordano shows his
incredible skill ; awesome timbre…great ability to give emphasis…
“Don’t Tell Me” is another pearl…How could we stop listening to
these songs!? I’m still asking how to do…
I want to underline the awesome lyrics written down by the band….and
the particular attention given to the arrangements that makes this album
attractive for modern metal fans ,pure rocker and gothic souls.
The single “Together As One” is another hit…another awesome and
unforgettable melody that mixes the best of cold Finnish tradition with
Italian mood….the guitars supports the awesome melody…and Giordano
confirms his skill….
It’s the time for a crying song that tell us about a very dark
lady…one of those who really loves the dark…and deepness of feeling
that only a dark girl can have…This is pure melancholic goth
rock…and the melody of this song is one of those that can’t be
forgetten…the lyrics of the song seems to flow the film of the song
into your eyes….
“Deliverance” is an incredible mix between 80’s street metal and
modern sound….the refrain can’t but remind us of what metal
was….but Cayne has modernized it…
“Addicted” is pure modern metal mixed to 80’s….is it possible?
Yes it is…some riffs remind of 80’s rock…even if he song is
absolutely modern ; Giordano shows his ability to adapt his voice to
different atmospheres in a very easy way.
“King of Nothing” feat Jeff Water (Annihlator)….yes…a very great
guest in this awesome rock/metal song in which the band show that they
never miss a shot….pure modern metal …melody and passion!
“My Damnation” is a pure masterpiece of gothic/rock metal….It’s
incredible the feeling spread through this song….The melody is one of
the best heard in absolute…and the song gets also very some modern
metal riffs that makes it another unforgettable jewel…
“Deep Down And Under” is
another sad song characterized by great guitar arpeggio, and the awesome
arrangement whom intent is to release a certain kind of emotion….I can
say that the goal has been achieved.
Andrea Ferro (Lacuna Coil) his friend for ages took part to this song
that seems the most “Lacuna Coil oriented”…another awesome little
Paul Quinn (Saxon) is another great guest
and he sings some
parts in“Black Liberation” seems a pure 80’s metal song made by Cayne….their
unmistakable style is mixed to classic old metal….I underline a very
awesome guitar solo mixed to a very atmospheric part of the song that
seems to connect to old HIM atmospheres….
“Evidence” is another modern metal , in my opinion “the less”
beautiful song of this awesome cd….
The album is closed with the infinitely
beautiful “Like the stars”...a very nocturnal song in which
Giordano shows the romantic side of his voice…while the two guitars
are drawing a magical path in the ocean….It’s impossible not to let
fall a tear….thanks Claudio….and thanks to Cayne…like a
diamond…this album is forever!
