LUCAS KANE are a Russian band likely highly influenced by other Europeans post-hardcore/screamo bands, most likely Swedish
Vi Som Älskade Varandra Så Mycket (in both epicness and vocal delivery) and Shizune (instrumentally and the vocal tone). They released a single of "Сновидение" in 2016 that was re-recorded and released on the 2018 LP, but this demo version includes much deeper vocals, giving it an Amanda Woodward, early Aussitôt Mort and Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort vibe that might even make it superior to the new one.

Said 2018 full length is titled 'Занавес' and begins with "Побег", an amazing, short intro track that utilizes a nice, dreamy build that pops at 45 seconds like any good Young Mountain song. There's even the inclusion of a beautiful guitar swing at 1:09 that makes me melt, oooowwweee. The aforementioned "Сновидение" is so good the band had to re-record it and include it here with slightly higher and sadder screams, making it is so fucking Vi Som Älskade Varandra Så Mycket that it almost feels like a new song. "Смерть дилижанса" is led by some very driving guitar riffs that hurtle through space like a flurry of shooting stars and is the third banger in a row. Then the album kinda drops off  as "Картины лета" dabbles more in post-hardcore than anything else and almost feels a bit too happy. As if that's a bad thing, David, you pessimistic son of a gun. Anyhoos, it's good but those early tracks are fucking awesome. "365 октября" picks up a bit and the closer "Бесконечная" is definitely a strong song with vocals screamed to their absolute max, making it a nice, driving, melodic hardcore meets screamo jam.

I am very curious to see what the band does next because there is some serious potential here.
