New Gods

~ Release group by Cauldron


New Gods is another solid outing from Canadian metallers. There’re definitely a couple of heavy numbers here but, for the most part, Cauldron has reeled in and settled on a gentle, melodic groove, which, in many ways, is a stark contrast to earlier releases. The band has always been good at keeping it simple, and their craft at making memorable licks and choruses has always been a strong trait. But there appears to be a conscious effort here for album fluidity and crafting choruses that won’t go away. Chained to the Nite is still the quintessential Cauldron album but this new record deserves a stop in its ranks.
