CAULDRON was born from the ashes of genre-defining, critically lauded GOAT HORN. The band, who were influenced by Venom, Black Sabbath and Cathedral, called it a day in 2006 and front man, Jason Decay, wasted no time in putting together CAULDRON to continue on with his heavy metal quest.
Prior to signing to EARACHE RECORDS, an EP entitled ‘Into The Cauldron’ was released on CD and limited edition vinyl, with both formats now being long since sold out. Their debut for EARACHE, entitled ‘Chained To The Nite’ – a slab of true heavy metal, dripping in melody and snarling with attitude - was unleashed in 2008 to high praise from fans and critic alike. In support of the album, CAULDRON embarked on an extensive touring schedule that would take in a UK tour with Wolf, two North American runs (with Enforcer and Municipal Waste respectively), finishing off with a month-long string of European dates including open air festivals, support slots with the likes of Nevermore and Death Angel, and a triumphant set at Sweden’s Muskelrock festival.
In 2011, CAULDRON's sophomore studio album, ‘Burning Fortune’, upped the ante for the band. The tracks on the album show the strength in CAULDRON's song writing and prove why they have continued to fly above and beyond their peers. Recorded by Jameson Elliott, who had previously worked with GOAT HORN, ‘Burning Fortune’ received a rapturous welcome from fans, who enthusiastically turned out to see the band on tour with Holy Grail in North America, and on successful headlining tours across Canada and Europe.
Stand out track ‘All or Nothing’ was featured on the ROCK BAND video game, and the band made an accompanying video for the track which has notched up thousands of youtube views. 'Burning Fortune' gained the band a prestigious nomination for Best Metal Record at the JUNO awards – Canada’s equivalent to the Grammy's.
After completing their final run of dates in support of ‘Burning Fortune’, CAULDRON returned to the studio, once again with Jameson Elliott at the helm, to create ‘Tomorrow’s Lost’. Yet another slice of pure heavy metal, their third album for EARACHE, ‘Tomorrow’s Lost’ delivers more riffs, more attitude and more modern metal classics. Released October 2012 in Europe to both fan and critical acclaim, and another classic video clip for 'Nitebreaker' on YouTube/VEVO, Cauldron returned to Europe in November for the aptly titled 6 week 'Europe's Lost' tour. No gimmicks, no tricks – just true, unadulterated heavy metal. Tomorrow's Lost is set for North America release on April 16, 2013 via Earache/Century Media Records.
