CaveState are powerviolence as fuck, man. You got machinegun drums, loud guitars, plenty of breaks, and song titles like “Prisoner Mentality” and “Self Extinct.” The singer sounds like he’s fighting somebody when he’s singing; either that or he sounds like someone is trying to strangle him with a bed sheet. I don’t mean any of that to sound like an insult. I just mean that he sounds genuinely pissed. The photographs on this record will not make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
