cave in Creative Eclipses (LP, £18.75)label: hydrahead
Very limited reissue, expanded with 3 extra tracks. 240 copies for Europe (80 on white vinyl, 180 on black). It’s been 20 years since the Boston quartet sliced canyons through multiple scenes, starting as a corrosive hardcore band before releasing some of the most unorthodox and exhilarating songs in extreme music on Until Your Heart Stops. And before the aftershocks could die down, Cave In evolved more radically than anyone could have predicted. While members have forged divergent paths with Old Man Gloom, Mutoid Man, Clouds and Zozobra in the years since, Creative Eclipses was the first signal that a band already celebrated for their innovation could effortlessly push beyond anything they’d tried before.
