It’s been over five and a half years since Cave In released their last album, Perfect Pitch Black but with a three-year hiatus and an EP since then, their fifth album, White Silence cannot come soon enough. It’s released on 24 May 2011 via Hydra Head Records. Cave In have not released a bad album or EP. It’s unlikely that this pattern will change.
Last week the label put ‘Sing My Loves’ up on Soundcloud and at over eight minutes, it’s an awesome amount of music to pique any Cave In fans’ interest. From feedback into heavy riffing into Steven Brodsky’s familiar, mournful voals, ‘Sing My Loves’ has got a deep, dark, almost Neurosis-y vibe. When bassist, Caleb Schofield’s brutal vocals rip through the chorus, the Cave In magic spell is complete.
For anyone that doesn’t know – the Boston legends have influenced every great hardcore band of the past decade. Listen to this:
