2011 was an interesting year for metal, with classic bands attempting to re-invent themselves while the youngsters tried their damnedest to get noticed in a genre packed with talent.

Ten albums crossed my mind as the best in metal, and while they aren’t all drop-D and chug chug chug, they do showcase every aspect of diversity within metal.

Without anymore wankery, here are my picks for best ten metal albums of the year: CLICK HERE

Cave In Band Picture

Boston metalcore band Cave In played an uproarious set at Louisville, Kentucky’s Krazyfest over the weekend and fans of the heavy metal quartet were treated to one of the first live shows in many years.

But, alas, those who could not attend are still in luck, as the power of video recording has given us the gift of an entire set!

Clocking in at almost 40 minutes, the set list should please any fan of Cave In, with steller cuts like “Trepanning” and “Big Riff.”

Cave In reveal new album “White Silence” and unveil cover art

Cave In Band PictureHydra Head Records announced something Cave In fans have been begging for since 2005: a new album. Not only did we get a name, but an album cover, a release date, and a track list. The news comes weeks after announcing a handful of tour dates on the east coast.

The label had this say to about the new album and Cave In’s career:

“Had you told us in 1997 that we’d be here, in Spring 2011, prepping a new Cave In album, we very likely wouldn’t have registered the sort of impact that fact might have on our lives. Now, a decade and a half since we began working together, we find ourselves humbled and emotional while reflecting on the depth of meaning we find in our relationship. As friends, and as business partners, we’ve seen each other grow and stumble with an ebb and flow that feels every bit as powerful as this album we hold in our hands. The sentiment we feel while listening to White Silence is every bit an indicator of the bond we’re grateful to have with old friends who happen to collectively bust out some of our favorite jams time and time again.”

Out on May 24th, White Silence will put an end to a hiatus that has lasted over five years.

Cave In announce first album in six years and small tour

Posted by jessepac on Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 1:28 PM (PST)

Cave In Band PictureMassachusetts natives Cave In have been sorely missed since their 2006 hiatus and the small tease-of-an-EP “Planets of Old” released last year. Their heavy sound built a large gathering of fans who have been waiting years for new material and finally that day has come. Even better, a handful of shows have been announced with more on the way. Rumors circulated of an album entitled “White Silence” being released last year.

The following comes from Cave In’s record label Hydra Head Records:

“Our favorite band that starts with a ‘CAVE’ and ends in an ‘IN’ just announced three new headlining shows on the way to and from their Krazy Fest 2011 appearance this May. Support slots TBA. Word on the street is that they’ll have a brand spankin’ new LP and CD littering their merch table….but more on that later.”
