“BEYOND THE SCARS” is more than a new album for CAYNE. It represents a rebirth, an awakening, a new chapter for the Italian band, after a long silence lasting 4 years. During these years of turmoil CAYNE changed and grew up, then started to write new music, feeding the project with new blood. The wounds mended, leaving scars. And beyond these scars the new CAYNE rose with this album.
CAYNE was formed by former Lacuna Coil guitarists Claudio Leo and Raffaele Zagaria in 1999. The first album was “OLD FADED PICTURES”, which was released in 2001 by SCARLET RECORDS. After the album promotion tour, the band took a step back and remained dormant for the next 4 years. Thanks to the encounter of Claudio Leo and Marco Barusso (guitarist and producer), the project had slowly been brought back to life from 2006 onwards. In 2011 CAYNE released the EP “ADDICTED”, whose promotion was supported by an Italian tour as opening act for their friends LACUNA COIL. The band’s live performances received many great reviews on metal portals and magazines, which inspired the sextet to start to work on a new album, simply entitled “CAYNE”. This album has been released in 2013 by the Dutch label GRAVITON MUSIC SERVICES. Sadly, the release of this album was darkened by Claudio Leo’s passing, after a long illness. They went on to spread Claudio´s legacy and carried on with even more passion, which took CAYNE on an 18 date European tour with VIZA, where they had the opportunity to play the mighty HAMMERFEST in the UK as well. This tour allowed the band to greatly extend their fan base, taking CAYNE’s name abroad and receiving great feedback from audience and media.
The end of 2016 marks the rebirth of the band: young drummer Giovanni Tani joins CAYNE and the quintet starts working on a new album in the studio, with Diego Minach as producer. This new album delivers the power of CAYNE’s sound, while taking things a step further. Giordano´s great vocal skills have created unforgettable melodies enriched by a wide use of synthesizers and electronics, as well as the inclusion of the violin, whose presence became much more consistent on this new album than in the past.
Gothic, metal, rock: CAYNE’s music is really for everyone, due to the power blended with melody and from the perspective of the emotional lyrics. Take this musical journey with them and their emotions will become part of yours.
