3) Kain es un grupo de metal que proviene de Medina del Campo, una pequeña localidad en el centro de la provincia de Valladolid. Comenzarón allá por el 2002, aunque fue en el 2006 c uando Kain logró llamar la atención de un pequeño sector del público metalero con su lanzamiento de por aquel entonces, “Génesis 4/16”. A partir de ahí el sonido del grupo evolucionó hasta “Cuestión de principios”, obra publicada en el 2008 y que se antoja mas madura y compacta que su predecesora. Riffs contundentes y letras abrasivas mezclados con una base ritmica aplastante, en pocas palabras.

Su discografia consta de varias demos autoeditadas (Mi hermano es tonto del culo -2002- y Cain -2004) y dos discos (Génesis 4/16 -abril 2006- y Cuestión de principios -marzo 2008- *cabe resaltar que ambos se editaron primero en internet).
