Swim to the Moon

Keelhaul is the master of sludge-influenced, instrumental hardcore - this six plus minute song from their debut is a great example.

Wild Ox Moan
This, the best track from their return to glory full-length, ensured that these hardcore veterans aren't slowing down anytime soon.
Silken Garotte / The Infinity Coil
Underground metalcore at its finest - this is dark, brooding, but also tasteful. One of many example's of the band's stellar songwriting.
The first choice when reviewing Cave In's older, heavier material.
