In recent years, a number of bands in the black metal underground have experimented with post-rock / shoegaze elements—most notably Alcest and Amesoeurs. However, the UK’s Caina has been melding the two genres since the group’s mid-’00s inception as a primitive, raw, one-man black metal project, well before the style was recognized as a burgeoning movement. Caina is the work of Andrew Curtis-Brignell, who conceived of the band in his late teens; his unique vision has been described as a mix of Burzum, Mogwai and The Red House Painters, or as if 4AD, Mute, or Matador had released a black metal album. A prolific musician, Curtis-Brignell already boasts a number of releases under the Caina moniker, including the critically acclaimed albums Mourner (2007) and Temporary Antennae (2008), both on Profound Lore. Hands That Pluck is Caina’s most ambitious work to date. Epic, progressive and visceral, it is a culmination of years spent developing an idiosyncratic sound. Assisting Curtis-Brignell on the album are three guest vocalists: Lord Imperial from cult black metal band Krieg, Rennie Resmini of hardcore group Starkweather and Chris Ross of Blood Revolt / Revenge / Axis of Advance fame. Though Hands That Pluck is priced as a single CD, it includes a bonus disc titled Old Songs, New Chords featuring reinterpretations of four classic Caina tracks, remastered versions of the originals, and a Nico cover.
