Cavity - Somewhere Between The Train Station And The Dumping Ground

Rhetoric, 1997, CD, Vinyl

This is a nice thing. Really nasty, downtuned doom sludge metal. Like the soundtrack to the Apocalypse. I can see how it might attract a good audience. You have all the metal kids who are already used to this kind of thing and get sick of all the fashionable bullshit... then also you have some regular rockers who might have liked Alice In Chains at one point and could be turned onto this. I mean this is years ago we are talking when this shit came out.
It's not the most accessible sound, but they do have "songs" which is not what happens sometimes in this niche. The vocalist sounds like he is drowning in the fires of hell but is somehow managing to get a few parting shots off. He never lets up, there is no singing or any mincing around as the rest of the band groove away with these crusty, bluesy riffs of doom. You just know something good is going to happen on tracks such as "Open Transom" and "One Last Broken", "Burning My Eyes" that start off slow with some bass riff and then get going into some monstrous aberration. Really this is good shit.
