Fire in the Cave-Self Titled EP

Written by Todd

Hailing from Orlando, FL, Fire in the Cave have just released their debut EP on Bandcamp. This is definitely one of the more interesting debuts I've heard in a while. Genre bending is the phrase that comes to mind. Elements of sludge, doom, black metal permeate the EP, all with a very southern feel about it.

There's definitely some serious talent going on in this group. Excellent guitar work and a very solid drummer propel the tracks along at a rather furious pace. Vicious vocals round out the sound from low growls to screams, the guy definitely seems to have a solid range.

There are some very interesting passages in these 2 tracks. The stand out of the two is Aedan Carr. I am truly in love with some of these melodic sections. I love hearing bands that are not afraid to look outside of their genres to find something unique and apply it to their brand of music. These guys influences are clearly all over the place, and that's a damn good thing.

Definitely check this one out. Cassettes are forthcoming from NK Tapes, but in the meantime, you can check it out on Bandcamp here for the Name Your Price deal. You know the drill. Enjoy.
