'Race of Cain' is a bold and intriguing comeback album for Norway's Forgotten Woods, favouring a lo-fi production quality comparable to many black metal demos from a decade earlier and concentrating more squarely on exposing the hypocrisy of Christianity, culminating in the extended sample of a radio interview with preacher Bob Larson in 'Third Eye,' bookended by the most furious musical performance of the album.
The weak production does serve to spoil the album from a technical point of view, though it does aid the dingy and intensely raw atmosphere. This mainly presents a problem in the couple of tracks where the style follows a more traditional speedy black metal approach, as 'A Landmine Reprisal' and 'Nightly Paradise' feature instruments that are often little more than a fuzz. The slower, more doom-laden songs are better on the whole, particularly the strong bluesy riffs of 'One Day' and the gloomy atmospheric guitars and female vocals of 'The Principle and the Whip.'
