Cain’s Offering is a quasi-supergroup predominantly comprised of members from Sonata Arctica and Stratovarius, making for a “best from Finland” release entitled Stormcrow.  The band was actually formed in 2008 and their debut release, Gather The Faithful, came out in 2009.  With busy schedules abound for both feeder bands, it took 6 years and a contract from Frontiers to issue Stormcrow.  Overall, the music soundscape is a lighter, partly Progressive flavor of Power Metal.  The tracks are catchy, melodic, and “smooth”.  If you’re a fan of Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, or Melodic Progressive Power Metal, this release is worth checking out.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
