Well worth a listen.

Cayne is an Italian modern rock outfit who have honed their craft supporting the likes of Lacuna Coil in their home country. They actually formed in 1999 and released an album called 'Full Length Pictures' back in 2001. Since then, a period of inactivity followed, before some line up changes bring us up to the present date.

Only guitarist Claudio Leo remained from the original band, but unfortunately he tragically passed away aged only 40, shortly after the album was finished. Claudio, however, left behind something of which he can be proud.

The self-titled album heralds a new start for the band, and they kick off with plenty of energy via 'Waiting'. The sound is modern and crisp, the fuzzy fat bass sound on 'Don't Tell Me' working beautifully against the cutting guitar tone. Vocalist Giordano Lanfranchi has a good voice and sings with the barest trace of an accent, which is a big plus for my tastes. The riffing is excellent, as evidenced on the powerhouse 'Deliverance'.

At times, the band remind me a little of Fozzy, managing to marry modern rock sounds with some excellent hooks and breaks. 'The awesome 'Addicted' is dark and nasty, almost Metallica-ish, while 'King Of Nothing' has a much more commercial slant, despite it's hard edge.

If I'm being ultra-critical, I thought the album was maybe two songs too long, with the thirteen tracks on offer weighing in at almost an hour. However, I must stress the entire album has been growing on me more and more with repeated plays.
There's a great deal to enjoy here – if you like modern rock and metal, Cayne offer a fine take on it. Well worth a listen.

Being a huge fan of Lacuna Coil, I was saddened to hear of the passing of their former guitarist Claudio Leo who played with the band from 1994-1998 and who's work can be heard on their self titled EP. A simply fantastic guitarist, take a listen to his work on that release's 'The Secret', the beautiful 'Falling', and 'Un Fantasma Tra Mui.' So I wasted no time in familiarizing myself with his project Cayne.

With a sound similar to the modern sounds of Stone Sour, the great keyboards of Morian, and the heavy guitars of Maxxwell, Cayne gets things right with the pianos of 'Together As One', the sensational 'Little Witch', the almost metal sounding 'King Of Nothing', the hard hitting drums of 'My Damnation', and the CD highlights 'Addicted', and 'Through The Ashes'.

Sadly Claudio Leo has left our rock world way too young and way to soon, but we can honor his life, his dedication to music and to his talent by making this CD part of our collection, and remembering the huge talent he was.
