CAVE OF SWIMMERS’ ‘Reflection’ Out Today / Official Video Released

Miami-based Progressive Metal Duo CAVE OF SWIMMERS have released new EP Reflection.  Purchase and/or stream it at this location.

Coinciding with the EP release, the band has also released an official video for single “The Prince of the Power of the Air.”

The one and only JASON NEWSTED had this to say about CAVE OF SWIMMERS:
“As musicians, COS are top-notch, naturally gifted players… As a band, they could go toe to toe with any of the decent up & coming bands that are currently performing live at popular European festivals. As a collection of sounds and songs in the heavy vein, orchestrated and erformed by two people (live or in studio); Cave of Swimmers are truly unique in their creativity and execution, and… Their name can now be shouted & screamed in the same breath as Royal Blood & Deap Vally!! Cave of Swimmers warrant a new sound classification… if there is to be one; PROAGGRESSIVE MUSIC!!”
Having made one hell of a racket in the Florida scene, the virtuosic tandem of GE Perez and Toro are set to inspire the world metal community with their blend of progressive metal, fusion, and Latin styles, even including some operatic flair for good measure. CAVE OF SWIMMERS’ intricate and flawlessly composed music has an awe-inspiring effect, leaving audiences stunned that such a massive sound could be orchestrated by only two musicians. With an intuitive and playful style reminiscent of the great jam bands of previous decades, CAVE OF SWIMMERS have been described as a “truly progressive” outfit by Destructive Music.

The Reflection CD release party will be held May 8 at Churchill’s Pub in Miami. For show details click HERE

Devils Gate Media


“Adventurous, epic, and mesmerizing…a mini-masterpiece.” 

– Soundscape Magazine


“A very dynamic and interesting mixture of stoner/doom rock with high doses of heavy metal and progressive rock. …gem of rock music” 

– Zombie Ritual Zine


“Best Unknown Band Miami 2014”

Miami New Times 

“Trust me you ain’t heard nothing like Cave of Swimmers… You can’t deny the huge ideas with every single riff.”  

 – The Sludgelord 


“A band with all the potential to make major strides and deposits in the world of metal. Make a note of the name Cave of Swimmers you will be hearing a great deal more of these guys we suspect.” 
The RingMaster Review

Originally from Venezuela, GE and Toro have been jamming together in various projects since their teens. After making the leap to America, it was a Moog pedal synthesizer that finally drew everything together. Since their first show at the iconic Churchill’s Pub in Miami, they have toured throughout the Eastern region of the US, enjoyed opening slots for national headliners, and developed a very devoted and passionate fan base.  In the end, what these two dudes bring is heart and soul to their shows, and of course some seriously honest, pure, unadulterated rock n’ roll.
