Regarded by many as one of the most progressive groups of the past decade, the Massachusetts-based Cave In originated in the mid 1990s as a brutal, dynamic, metal-tinged hardcore band akin to influential shredders like Converge, Coalesce, and Botch.
According to Brodsky, major label expectations began to drown Cave In to the mire of a perplexing puzzle.
As dedicated to exploration and experimentation as Cave In has always been, it seemed no matter which direction the band moved, the end results were never as exhilarating.
In an effort to recapture some of the prototypical Cave In "magic," the band began playing some of the more brutal material from its early years during live sets.
There is no other band I've ever played in that is as powerful with its volume as Cave In," Brodsky enthuses.
