Quality of Rage: April Blog [New Album!]


12472432_1567665800228861_5251457362604751334_nA lot of people have been asking us of late where we are with the new album. At the moment we are still effectively writing it, and are taking our time over the process. Basically the way we are working this time is one of us is coming up with the idea for a song before sending it over to the other band members. We learn the song at home and come together to jam it in rehearsals where we make any necessary changes. We will do this until we are comfortable with it, we then “road test” it by playing it live before going back into the rehearsal rooms for a final run through. We then record the demo which will be used as the “ghost track” for when we come to record the song for the album. They may get changed further before we head into the studio…

NWOBHM: Year One


Punk Rock was the best thing that ever happened to Heavy Metal. Like the comet that struck the earth killed off the dinosaurs, Punk’s impact destroyed the status quo and wiped the slate clean for rock music to reinvent itself. Punk slayed the arena gods of the 70’s, and demanded that you didn’t have to be a musical genius to express yourself musically; anyone could form a band, and everyone should form a band.

Ultimately, Punk rock’s success doomed it to failure, as it eventually assimilated into the very thing it was programmed to destroy: the mainstream. Of course, during Punk’s brief reign, the Metalheads were still out there, both fans and bands, biding their time, awaiting their moment. Punk didn’t kill Heavy Metal; it just drove it underground.

As a bass player, it doesn’t get better than the premier string brand Rotosound. Featuring such artists as Praying Mantis and Iron Maiden, you know you’re in good company. And my band Kaine has now been added to the list.

For me this really is something huge. I’ve been using Rotosound’s “Swing Bass” series for 5 years without a single issue. No string breaks, no dead strings, just fantastic tone. I wouldn’t be saying this if it weren’t true. I have been talking about the virtues of Rotosound’s bass strings for a long time to fellow bassists and it feels truly natural to be entering into business relations with the company. I have tried and tested plenty of other strings and I have never been quite as satisfied with other brands in terms of tone and playability as I am with Rotosound.

What do we get out of this? We…
