Cains Offering is the brainchild of Finnish guitarist/songwriter Jani Liimatainen (founding member of one of Finland's biggest music exports Sonata Arctica). 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, another perfect example of today's living and breathing Finnish music scene. Joining Jani on the bands sophomore release, coming after 2009s excellent debut Gather the Faithful, are Stratovarius members vocalist Timo Kotipelto and Jens Johansson, plus Jonas Kuhlberg on bass and Jani Hurts Hurula (Paul Di'Anno) on drums. Yes, this 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 product exceeds all expectations!
