With a riffage that immediately brings to mind their compatriots in Iron Maiden, Kaine bring forward the first single of their upcoming third studio album. It’s a tiny record, packing only one song (no outtakes, b-sides or anything) and, sadly, not a lot to talk about.
Despite the mental images of NWOBHM that are awaken by the song, there is very little to take away from this record other than the desire to listen to some of those other bands. Singer Rage Adler appears ill-suited to front a band that seems so desperate to pay homage to the 80’s British metal scene. His voice is much more appropriate for a thrash setting (it could work fairly well in a Kreator tribute band) than accompanying this type of songs.
While the music packs a punch (the intro is pretty decent, even if it sounds like generic_heavy_intro.mp3) it’s not at all interesting. The songwriting is monotonous and unimpressive, with some completely random changes in guitar distortion that really confuse you as you listen to it. The chorus is repeated over and over again (“justice injustice, justice injustice, justice injustice”), so much so that by the end you’ll be praying to have it leave your head.
