Cave In's latest, and presumably last, full-length is one steeped in tragedy, though its outcome isn't all gloom. In March of 2018, founding bassist and songwriter Caleb Scofield died in a car accident, just as the Boston metalcore band had begun recording their first record in seven years. Scofield's loss was felt across the community, though many musicians came together to celebrate his life.
Cave In sing their loves. I've always gone to metalcore like an adrenaline junkie chasing a rush. Nothing beats the thrill when a band shies away from the generic half-time breakdown to deliver something uniquely crushing instead. Or when they truly click as a family, with that lived-in ease that only comes from writing, sweating and breathing stale tour bus air with four other people for a lifetime.
