Tomorrow's Lost by Cauldron on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

Two members of the Canadian retro-metal trio Cauldron hail from the now-defunct band Goat Horn, whose final recording, Threatening Force, leaned less on palm-muted riffs and more on dexterous guitar leads. Cauldron's third studio full-length, Tomorrow’s Lost, finds the band creating its own branch of the metal tree by contrasting '80s thrash with a finesse in musicianship harvested from New Wave of British Heavy Metal. “End of Time” opens with distorted riffs blasting over galloping rhythms, as Jason Decay sings in a menacing tenor before Ian Chain ignites the fretboard with shredding reminiscent of early Metallica and Dokken records. With a hard rock boogie that initially recalls “Strutter” by KISS, “Born to Struggle” could be renamed “Born to Strut.” But as soon as Decay’s vocals come in, he drives the melody toward a more sinister realm with dark notes and foreboding minor chords. At five minutes and 27 seconds, “Summoned to Succumb” is the longest song here. It boasts the album’s most complex arrangements, with intricate guitar work and catchy melodies.

About Cauldron

Drawing inspiration from the likes of Dokken, Iron Maiden, Raven, and Saxon, as well as contemporary New Wave of British Heavy Metal outfits like White Wizzard, Enforcer, and the Darkness, Canadian rockers Cauldron formed in 2006 following the breakup of the like-minded Goat Horn. Based out of Toronto, the band features the talents of Jason Decay (vocals, bass), Ian Chains (guitar), and Myles Deck (drums). The trio's 2007 debut EP, Into the Cauldron, caught the attention of Earache Records, who signed the group the following year. Chained to the Night, the band's first studio long-player, arrived in 2009, followed in 2011 by their sophomore outing, Burning Fortune. The hard-working group wasted little time in getting their third LP into the hands of fans, releasing Tomorrow's Lost just a year later, followed in 2014 by their second EP, Moonlight Desires. In Ruin, Cauldron's fourth studio album, arrived in 2016 via The End Records. ~ James Christopher Monger
