Cavern Deep is a promising doom metal band I discovered about a few months ago with the song, “Waterways“, off from their self-titled debut album which was released on July 23, 2021. Now, please give the album a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Music of these gentlemen has stayed with me since I heard of them for the first time, and in the last couple of days, I started to realize how much it grew in me. The taste of this music is quite exceptional, hard to find something else to replace the certain feeling of it. Although they are a new band, I see Cavern Deep more like an established band. And surprisingly, they are the first doom metal band that I feel like becoming a fan of.
The most surprising thing about Cavern Deep, is that this is just their debut album, which is truly impressive. Having the standards of the current Mastodon in your debut album is a big deal. Obviously, these Scandinavian gentlemen are experienced artists, doesn’t seem like this project is their first time in the professional music scene.
First of all, Cavern Deep shows so much potential with everything about their debut album. They have blended sludge/stoner rock elements with a traditional sound, smoothed with moody doom metal vibes and Cathedral reverb. The band has already defined their music style very specifically for us, “Conceptual Subterranean Doom Metal“, answering all questions with only four words.
On the other hand, the musical character here is quite recognizable. I don’t necessarily listen to any doom metal, to be honest, yet, we don’t see new bands exceeded all our expectations that often.
Lastly, the band has a great image, a whole concept for the entire release, where we can also see how professional these guys are when it comes to their band, Cavern Deep. The artwork is mysterious, going flawlessly well with the mood of the album. Not much left to say, Cavern Deep is one of the most impressive bands we have discovered in 2021.
