Caveat are a band from Wisconsin that plays a psychedelic mixture of sludge, stoner, doom, crust and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Kobayashi Maru" which will be released in March by Trinidiod Records.
Clean playing starts off the ep and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after a minute the music starts going into more of a heavy sludge/doom metal direction along with some deep death metal growls and the music also brings in a great amount of old school melodies from that genre as well.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great amount of stoner rock elements and psychedelic sounds and when solos and leads are utilized they also bring in even more of a melodic and retro sound to the recording and there is also a good mixture of slow and mid paced parts throughout the recording along with a good portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Caveat plays a style of sludge, doom and stoner metal that brings in a psychedelic and retro approach and mixes it with the heaviness of death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover pot smoking, dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Caveat are a very great sounding psychedelic mixture of sludge, stoner, doom, crust and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Space Weed" and "Greatness Itself". 8 out of 10.
