In 1998 a deal with Swedish indie label Bridge Records was eked out and the mini-album Cave-In was born.
The band’s first album proper was recorded at Berno Studio’s in 2001, and is appropriately titled A Venom Well Designed. After the critical acclaim of Cave-In the band had many larger labels interested in working with them. Peaceville Records, who had been fans since hearing the EP upon its release offered the band a deal and were delighted when they accepted.
The sound is not dissimilar to its predecessor but has matured into a fuller heavier sound. Still brutally hardcore, but with a more melodious edge. The bristling lyrics bite with an urgency and conscience quite unique in these days of ‘me me me nu-metal.’ Their influences range through the obvious death metal n hardcore scenes to Joy Division, The Cure and the Velvet Underground.
