Today, progressive metal powerhouse KADINJA from France launches the pre-orders for their new upcoming album »DNA« and reveal its album artwork cover!
The upcoming KADINJA album, called »DNA« (Dedication.Nostalgia.Addiction) will be released on the 27th of September 2019 with Arising Empire, and is composed of 10 iconic cover songs from late 90’s/early 2000. Through this tribute record, the band added technical and modern metal touches, for a kind of revival of rock/metal masterpieces.
KADINJA: “The idea was simply to build a kind of tribute to these artists who took a huge part of our Metal music background. We just didn’t want to only cover the songs, but also imagine what these songs would have sounded like if they had been composed now, with our current resources in terms of production, technics, and general music context.
‘DNA’ is about what made us what we are as musicians. Those tunes are songs we still listen to nowadays, this is our Dedication, our current Nostalgia and a 20 years long addiction””

Kadinja is a progressive Metal quintet founded in Paris in 2013. The same year, in December, the band released its first self-titled EP, followed by many shows and festivals such as Lower Tuned, Tech Fest or Euroblast, with bands that are pillars of the Progressive Metal scene (Heavy Metal Ninja, Skyharbor, Modern Day Babylon, Disperse, etc.).
In the process of creating and framing its style and its technical identity, the band released its first album, »Ascendandy« (Klonosphere/Season Of Mist) in February 2017. This date marks a true beginning in the band’s career, with a warm welcome from the press and the public. Soon after, Kadinja became a reference on the French Metal scene, due to that first album, but also to each member’s personnal career and performances. Few Masterclasses were organised in Europe, in music schools (MusicAcademyInternational, etc.) and in festivals (UK Teck Fest, etc.). Several European Tours were booked to promote »Ascendandy«, during which Kadinja had the privilege to share the stage with bands like Animal As Leaders, Devin Townsend Project, Monuments, Vola, Adagio, Klone, Betraying the Martyrs, The Algorithm, etc.
The album »Super 90’« came out on January the 18th, 2019 (ArisingEmpire/NuclearBlast). Willing to seduce a larger audience beyond the Metal scene, this album has more of a conceptual approach, more on the Rock side and goes deeper into musical techniques. A large promotion campaign is associated to »Super 90’«, with tours in Europe and Asia, and presence in Los Angeles for the Namm Show 2019.
