Interviews: Union Kain


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Hard Rock/Metal band, Union Kain, from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Kain: I got the name Cain from the bible and switched the C for a K . Union means group or bond, to join together. We are joined together to make music 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Kain: I grew up on hard rock influences it’s the genre I listen to most.

Brizzy Dee: There was no specific plan to create a specific genre.

Glazergirl: Rock just FEELS right. It seeps into your pores, it’s sexy, what else is there?

Big$: Metal is real and a timeline of current events

Jay the Worst: this genre I feel is the best way to just demonstrate attitude.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Kain: Brizz and I met first through another musician. The rest of the band was formed later.

Brizzy Dee: Kain and I met by way of answering an advertisement seeking musicians for a different band. The others fell into place over time.

Glazergirl: No. Kain found me on BandMix. Met the team. Fell in love with the sound.

Big$: I’ve never met these people. Call in a Craigslist ad

Jay the Worst: of course not! These guys found me on craigslist like the whore I am

4. Each band member favourite band?

Kain: Iron Maiden

Brizzy Dee: I go through stages. At the moment, Avenged Sevenfold, The Stage album. I love listening to Wackerman play. He is an amazing drummer. 

Glazergirl: Rough call. I think as a lyricist and vocalist I looks for what the songs say and how the vocalists emote. So if I say Anything Chris Cornell, STP and Alice in Chains, for me its really about Scott Weiland, Chris Cornell and Layne Staley. Or, Stone Sour / Corey Taylor (he’s awesome). If I just look for what I want to jam to, I’d say Metallica, Judas Priest, STP and Alice in Chains. I’m also into Volbeat (Love Michael Poulson) and getting into Korn (Jonathan Davis is very cool). Throw them in a jar and shake them up.

Big$: Alice Cooper grp. It was my 1st rock album

Jay the Worst: Pantera

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Kain: Life inspires me to write, if ya look around great songs can be written 

Brizzy Dee: Simply put, I hear guitar riffs in my head. From there, I figure out what seems to fit musically.

Glazergirl: The moment. A good story. A good Lick/Riff. Wrapped together with a melodic ribbon. Wallah! A song.

Big$: Uncles were playing in bars and great writers The Rolling Stones always had something to say

Jay the Worst: experience

6. Where was your last gig?

Kain: Churchills(pre-covid)

Glazergirl: Kryptonite Metal Fest at Churchill’s in Miami.

Big$: Churchill’s

7. Where would you like to act?

Kain: WEMBLEY STADIUM!

Brizzy Dee: My goal is set on a stadium tour.

Glazergirl: Big Stadiums and really cool little amphitheaters like the Wharf Amphitheater in Orange Beach, AL.

Big$: Red Rocks Co.  went there and so many great bands had history there

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Kain: Iron Maiden Brizzy

Dee: Personally, I would love to tour with a national act that has some experience under their belt and who is a blast to hang with.

Glazergirl: Judas Priest or Metallica…groups I’ve enjoyed seeing…Volbeat just played with Metallica--they are awesome. I’m also longtime fan of Saliva, they totally rock. And my newest thing is Disciples of Verity—very cool sound. I also think it would be cool to open for Korn.

Big$: Megadeth

Jay the Worst: Rihanna—deep down inside she’s a metalhead.

9. Whom not?

Kain: Post Malone

Brizzy Dee: Good question. I would have to say, no egotistical assholes! Lol! 

Glazergirl: Hmmmmm. Tough call. Probably I’d be concerned about working with someone who is unpleasant to deal with. But that is all subjective and one doesn’t know until in the moment.

Big$: No Pop

Jay the Worst: anyone from the pop crap scene.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Kain: I get anxiety, but my advice would be focus on your playing because the people watching don’t know you.

Brizzy Dee: Of course! Just picture everyone naked! Just kidding. Seriously, I just focus on our music and my desire to share. This gets me excited about showing what we have because I believe in what we have to offer.

Glazergirl: Super stage fright right before going on, but then I’m fine. Jay the Worst gets so annoyed with me right before a show because I get all kooky. Then I go on and I get into the moment and feed off the audience’s energy like a succubus. Then I don’t want it to end!

Big$: none yet

Jay the Worst: YES! Just stop thinking and do it!

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Kain: Iron Maiden definitely, Metallica……BB King

Brizzy Dee: Almost everyone I hear. More specifically though, Zeppelin, Rush, Judas Priest, Dave Weckel, Chick Corea, Dave Brubeck. Just way too many to list.

Glazergirl: STP, Alice in Chains, Judas Priest, Prince, Queen, Anything Chris Cornell.

Big$: Beatles Doors

Jay the Worst: Queen, Black label Society, Pantera. The people want a show, and I must deliver

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

Kain: to sign his dolphins hat while standing at the Walmart register. He recognized me from our facebook page.

Brizzy Dee & Glazergirl: I don’t know if it’s weird…yesterday I was asked to mail my panties or g-string…

Big$: nothing yet 

13. What do you think of your fans?

Kain: I love our fans, they are the ones that make us. If we didn’t have them we’d just be a garage band playing for ourselves.

Brizzy Dee: I very much appreciate them!

Glazergirl: Love the fans! And very appreciative of them for their kindness, appreciation, support. A lot of great people out there just hungering for hard rock and something new and exciting to listen to. The fans are superb and we thank you!

Big$: great peeps. Interesting

Jay the Worst: they’re fucking awesome but need to get wasted with me to make it official

14. What do you think of our site?

Kain: Great Site !!!!

Big$: high class

Glazergirl: Very elegant---almost like an art history class in the manner in which you present the artists.

15. Something add?

Kain: playing music is a great and rewarding thing to me. It can sometimes be hard work but my passion is what drives me to get through the difficulties. I’ve got good people that I’m surrounded by, it truly is a union.

Glazergirl: As I put n my Facebook page, “Music is Life…the blood of my soul…I sing therefore I am.” I cannot imagine a day without music. I also feel very blessed to be a part of Union Kain with this amazing group of guys. This is the best Bro-Mance EVER! Making music with them is as if all the puzzle pieces have come together and magic is being made.

Big$: Music Is important. It was when I was young and them struggled times
