Swedish modern sci-fi metal outfit CURSE OF CAIN has joined the Atomic Fire Records roster! Forged in 2000 by ex-Follow The Cipher and ex-Ad Infinitum forward-thinking bassist Jonas Asplind, CURSE OF CAIN focuses on both musical and visual elements to create a dystopian futuristic world while simultaneously unfolding fascinating stories about strong characters such as Cain himself.
Comments the band, “We are beyond excited and really looking forward to this collaboration. Atomic Fire Records is the perfect partner for us, and we are happy to take this huge next step together with them.”
Adds Atomic Fire Records CEO Markus Wosgien, “We were all completely impressed by what CURSE OF CAIN presented to us with their debut album: a coherent, exciting concept and a multi-faceted album with numerous catchy tunes. In short, everything is right here and fantastic musicians come together who have created something unique. I’ve had a close friendship with Jonas Asplind since his time in Follow The Cipher, so I’m all the more pleased to be able to further promote his musical career and to be able to walk with him. CURSE OF CAIN is one of the most exciting newcomers of the hour. Look forward to something very special!”
Today, CURSE OF CAIN also gives a first taste of their music which can be described as movie metal with a dark touch with a video for first single, “Alive.”
“‘Alive’ is the natural song for us to start of with,” the band notes. “It’s catchy but dark at the same time; it really captures the movie metal feeling that is our signature.”
The video for “Alive” was produced and directed by George Grigoriadis and Jonas Asplind and filmed and edited by Grigoriadis. The story is by Grigoriadis and Victor Ganebrant.
