    This is awesome!!! I didn't expect a new release from Cain's Offering, the 1st one was great:

    "Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the second CAIN’S OFFERING studio album entitled “Stormcrow” on May 15th in Europe and May 19th in North America.
    Cain's Offering is the brainchild of Finnish guitarist/songwriter Jani Liimatainen, founding member of one of Finland's biggest musical exports, Sonata Arctica.
    Drawing its musical influence from both the classic Hard Rock scene, fast-paced European Power Metal and a very modern Heavy Metal sound, CAIN’S OFFERING is, just as expected, another perfect example of today's incredible Finnish music scene.
    Joining Jani on the band’s sophomore release, coming after 2009’s acclaimed debut “Gather the Faithful”, are Stratovarius vocalist Timo Kotipelto and keyboardist Jens Johansson, plus Jonas Kuhlberg on bass and Jani "Hurtsi" Hurula (Paul Di'Anno) on drums. “I was approached about doing this second Cain’s Offering album already a few years ago” explains Jani, “but back then I was way too busy with other projects to even consider taking the time to write an album worth of material, but last year when I was approached about it again I thought that the time might be right and felt like I could really focus all my energy on the album”.
    Jani continues “I think musically the new album is a bit more focused and coherent. “Gather The Faithful” was the first album where I wrote all the music and lyrics by myself, and in retrospect maybe I was a bit too ambitious, trying to prove that I can actually write really good, complex songs. It’s been six years since the first one and I think that I have matured as a writer, not trying to prove anything anymore, just trying to write the best possible material. It’s still very much vocal and melody orientated writing, since to me the melody is always the king, but I did try to keep things a bit more simple this time. Although I think Timo would still say some of the vocal melodies are quite complex!”
    “Stormcrow” is a tour-de-force of who's-who in the Finnish heavy metal scene, and yes, this does sound like a dream come true for all fans of melodic Heavy Metal. And guess what - the final result is going to blow you away as this album melts the best of SONATA ARCTICA and STRATOVARIUS together in a new, exciting and powerful sound!

    This is awesome news! I had given up hope that they would ever release a second album, but now I can rejoice. These guys would be a shoe - in for the next Prog Power.


    Stay metal. Never rust.

    The sampler was killer. I have a feeling this will fill the whole left by both Sonata Arctica and Nightwish's lack of actual Finnish power metal in their more recent outputs.

    I loved the first album so much. New stuff sounds like it might be even better.

    And the Japanese bonus track. Superb! The new Stratovarius album is going to have to be mindblowingly cosmic to beat this album.

    Shit that bonus track is power metal gold. It kind of convinces me that Jani's absence in Sonata Arctica is the reason they're not quite as good anymore...

    I believe that you're correct. I was actually able to buy this the other day at an independent store in Daytona, FL...it was a blind buy, but an excellent choice!
