Cave In is an American rock band that formed in 1995, in Methuen, Massachusetts.
After several members changes in the late 1990s, their lineup solidified with the 1998 release of Until Your Heart Stops through Hydra Head Records.
With their first few releases falling in line with the burgeoning metalcore scene, the band started experimenting with other genres after their first album, later receiving mainstream recognition for their 2003 RCA Records album Antenna and its lead single "Anchor," which had an overall alternative rock style.
The group went on hiatus in 2006, reforming in 2009 with the release of a new EP, Planets of Old, as well as a new LP in 2011, entitled White Silence with both of these seeing a return to Cave In's earlier heavier sound.

Lazer/Wulf is an instrumental metal trio, which sometimes includes vocals. No, let's start over.
It's a funk group with thrash roots. Or a jazz trio with sludge issues. Whatever it is, it's not the easiest thing to describe, which makes it that much easier to love. Just ask the band's rabidly devoted following.
Formed in the diverse and devoted music scene of Athens, GA, where every possible genre not only exists but actively co-exists, Lazer/Wulf learned to disregard genre conventions for the sake of an compelling performance and honest songwriting. It's thrash, it's math-rock, it's fusion and crust punk and doom and funk in 7/8 – but the seams between them aren't just hidden; they're simply not there. The Wulves are an ongoing experiment in making stylistic conflict a non-conflicting listen, cooking diverse, often adverse, ingredients into an exhilarating whole.
Circumstantially, it's heavy as hell, and tends to unify audiences with how simply fun it all is, even as it toes the line between "challenging listen" and "utter alienation."
To put it another way; imagine a giant trampoline rigged to explode. It's fun for everybody, but likely to kill you at any moment.
