Marking the release of its self-titled debut album (Atomic Fire Records), Swedish collective Curse of Cain has shared the official music video for the song “Blame.”
“When we played this song live for the first time, we realized that ‘Blame’ is a really catchy tune!” the band said. “During the second chorus, the audience was already singing along. This made it a natural choice for a focus track.”
Check out the band’s videos for “Alive,” “Embrace Your Darkness” and “Hurt,” as well as companion live editions, at here. Find karaoke editions of the tracks here.

Curse of Cain’s inaugural studio offering is in a world of its own. More theater play than metal record, the record acts as a dystopian narrative set in a lost world where each band member becomes a bizarre character, fulfilling a role that goes far beyond making music with some pals. Elaborating on the ecclesiastical and bloodthirsty story of Cain, son to Adam and Eve and thought by some to be the father of all vampires, the album follows this cursed character through his immortality in a ruinous and crumbling world.
Recorded between 2017 and 2020 in the band’s own studio with Alexander Backlund handling producing and mixing duties, “Curse of Cain” is the overture to an epic poem the world of heavy metal has not yet seen. The Pirate’s former bandmate Ken Kängström (Follow the Cipher) contributes some songwriting, and Tommy Johansson (Sabaton, Majestica) tracked a guitar solo for opening track “The Mark.”
