Cave Of Swimmers are a duo from Miami, Florida that plays an experimental and progressive mixture of metal and rock and this is a review of their self titled 2014 ep which will be released by The Path Less Traveled Records.
A very hard and heavy stoner rock sound starts off the ep with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful which also leads up to some melodic vocals which also have a 70's doom metal feeling to them and after awhile traces of latin music are added into certain sections of the recording and when the guitar solos and leads are brought in the music starts soundign more progressive.
As the ep progresses you can hear elements of experimental an psychedelic music being added into certain sections of the music, while the heavier parts go into a more doom metal direction and every track has a different sound to them as well as being mostly over 5 minutes and on the last track you can hear elements of grunge and alternative being mixed in with the heavier metal sections of the song along with a small amount of spoken word parts.
Cave of Swimmers have a very original sound to them and they do not belong to a particular genre with their style being closer to stoner rock and doom, th e production has a very professional sound and the lyrics cover everyday type themes along with some of the lyrics beign written in Spanish.
In my opinion Cave Of Swimmers are a very great sounding mixture of stoner rock, experimental and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hangman" and "Cave of Swimmers". 8 out of 10.
