Caïna is a Raw Black Metal / Post-Rock one-man band, from the United Kingdom [Hampshire / Sussex, England] and created by Andy, aka “A”. Caïna was conceived in the winter of 2004, and born, screaming and covered in mucus in May 2005, when the debut demo/e.p [When We Are Grown We Will Be Strong] was recorded.

From its inception, Caïna as an aesthetic unit was designed to become a continually evolving musical entity, combining the frigid and cold musical framework of the rawest black metal with a post-rock/ambient sound and aesthetic. A chimerical beast classified somewhere between fragile, brittle art and bristling aural fury, the project is a solo one; the only creative member is “.A.”.

Caïna is Dante’s eternally frozen lake; a bottomless fissure filled with blackened ice, reverborating with the lament of innumerable damned souls, from which there is no escape. An apt moniker then, for a musical project which aims to provoke a genuine feeling of a perpetual teetering between damnation and salvation.

Dante would not, however, have approved of the meaning behind such provocation: whilst Caïna (nor its protagonist, .A., for that matter) does not ascribe to the typically ‘evil’ code of ethics proscribed by many Black Metal bands, Caïna’s subject matter is primarily concerned with an fusion of Modern (or LaVeyan) Satanism and Crowleyian, Thelemic principles, along with occasional excursions into pure poetry or Historical/Literary subjects. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT NOTE: * * * * * [ Caïna - Hands That Pluck ] * * * * * 2011 UPDATE

It’s interesting, that on his fourth album [ Hands That Pluck ], he dishes out some of his rawest black ‘n’ roll metal to date. You’ll get a sense of the seething sound via a list of the collection’s guests:

- Krieg’s N. Imperial : [ On the expansive “ Murrain ” ] - Starkweather’s Rennie Resmini : [ On the excellent Converge-meets-black metal of “ Callus And Cicatrix ” ] - Chris Ross : [ On the monstrous progressive rock mind melter “ I Know Thee Of Old ” ].

The album’s first track [ Profane Inheritors ] is a crusty shredder that would fit well on a recent Darkthrone album. It’s followed by Krieg’s 11-minute sky-melter [ Murrain ], the swirling ambient drone of the title track, and the anthemic instrumental post-rock of [ The Sea Of Grief Has No Shores ] — songs that would not fit well on a recent Darkthrone album.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
