Cauldron – New Studio Album “In Ruin” Out In January

New Cauldron Studio Album “In Ruin” Out In January 2016

Canadian Heavy Metal band Cauldron formed in Toronto, Ontario, back in 2006. Since then they have released the “Into The Cauldron” EP in 2007, as well as three full-length albums: “Chained To The Nite” (2009), “Burning Fortune” (2011), “Tomorrow’s Lost” (2012), and the the “Moonlight Desires” EP (2014). The band has toured the world with the likes of Municipal Waste, Death Angel, Nevermore, Diamond Head, Enforcer, and in the Summer of 2013, were invited to play Metallica’s Orion Fest in Detroit. For their fourth studio album titled “In Ruin”, Cauldron have signed with High Roller Records in Europe.

For the new album the trio returned to the Lincoln County Social Club recording studio in their home town of Toronto, where they recorded two of their previous albums. Co-produced by Chris Stringer (Rush, Timber Timbre), “In Ruin” is sure to deliver more riffs, more attitude and more traditional Metal to the band’s growing army of fans.

Front man Jason Decay can’t hide his enthusiasm about Cauldron’s new album featuring songs such as: “Burning At Both Ends” (being about “going too hard for too long, and facing the repercussions of what that entails”) and “Santa Mira” (about the movie “Halloween III”): “In Ruin” is probably the next logical step, a subtle and natural progression from “Tomorrow’s Lost”. We were very satisfied with “Tomorrow’s Lost” so we had to make sure we had a worthy follow up, and I think we’ve exceeded that. I suppose you could say it’s a little more melodic and refined, yet diverse”.

Cauldron issued their last three albums via legendary Earache Records label, but have now inked a deal with High Roller Records for Europe: “High Roller seems to really understand Cauldron and is enthusiastic to have us, which says a lot. We are proud to be with a label that has a strong passion for our music, as opposed to how much money we can make them”. “In Ruin” will be released on LP and CD in Europe on January 29, 2016.




About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
