Today's "New Band To Burn One To" comes from Orlando, Florida.
"To them, I said, the truth would be literally nothing but the shadows of the images." Socrates
Fire in the Cave is a band from Orlando, Florida. The group is comprised of the final lineup of the now disassembled band: Bad Actor.
Blistering riffs become sluggish spells of hypnosis constructed in movements. Each sonic assault surrounds every sense passing through moments of suffocating heaviness that fade into psychedelic tranquility. The band is lyrically driven by themes of environmental psychology, disgust for proselytization and the inherent beauty in the tribal instinct of mankind.
"This EP from Orlando sludgebeasts Fire in the Cave may be two of the most gloriously terrifying and totally gratifying songs I've heard in succession so far this year. The swamp-stained cave creature adorning the cover (artwork by Jean Saiz -Shroud Eater) of the EP paints the perfect picture of what you get when listening to Fire in the Cave. The EP starts with a thunderous foot stomp, then holy hell breaks loose in the form of a possessed blood-curdling growl. The aural bludgeoning lets up just enough for you to gather your bearings while you succumb to the remarkable melody, doomy riffing and the dynamic atmospherics. Don't get too relaxed though as you are once again thrust into the blackened thickness. The huge wall of sound envelopes you with steadfast riffing, countrified licks, and rhythms that reek a whole lot of evil. Nothing else to say other than...this shit is sick!"
