The managers of heavyweight champion Larry Cain and Broadway musical star Mabel O'Dare scheme up a romance to give the celebrities more glamour. But the two don't hit it off, having started on the wrong foot.
"Gather the Faithful" is the debut album of Finnish power metal band Cain's Offering, an all-star project started by former Sonata Arctica guitarist Jani Liimatainen. It was recorded in 2009 in different studios in Finland and was released on July 22, 2009 in Japan via Avalon. In 2007 Jani parted ways with Finnish Power Metal act Sonata Arctica, a band he has contributed to found in 1996 and to which he devoted his full time and energy for more than 10 years. Drawing its musical influence from both the classic Hard Rock scene, the fast-paced European Power Metal and a very modern Heavy Metal sound, Cain's Offering is, just as expected, a perfect example of today's living and breathing Finnish music scene.
“Stormcrow” is the second album by Finnish power metal supergroup Cain's Offering, released on 15 May 2015. It is their first album with keyboardist Jens Johansson (Stratovarius, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen) and bassist Jonas Kuhlberg. “Stormcrow” is a tour-de-force of who's-who in the Finnish heavy metal scene, and yes, this does sound like a wet dream come through for all fans of melodic Heavy Metal. And guess what - the final result is going to blow you away as this album melts the best of SONATA ARCTICA and STRATOVARIUS in a new, exciting and powerful sound!
A Finnish power metal outfit with an impressive hard rock pedigree, Cain's Offering is a Scandinavian supergroup of sorts, consisting of vocalist Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius), guitarist Jani Liimatainen and keyboardist Mikko Härkin (Sonata Arctica), bassist Jukka Koskinen (Wintersun, Norther), and drummer Jani Hurula. Formed in 2008, the band issued its debut long-player, Gather the Faithful, the following year via Avalon (Japan) and Frontiers (Europe, U.S.). A second studio album, Stormcrow, arrived in 2015, and saw Stratovarius keyboard player Jens Ola Johansson and bass player Jonas Kuhlberg join the fold.
