Review

The Limit might not be the name of a band on many a rock fans lips, but to read into their history, you will find an eclectic and impressive history behind its veteran lineup. Consisting of members from classic punk pioneers, The Stooges and The Testors; as well as Doom Metal pioneers Pentagram, this is a band who are not amateur on any levels.

Caveman Logic is the debut release from these old-timers, which tells the audience they still have the energy and synergy to produce catchy hard rock mixed with the depth and speed they are known for pioneering in their own respective genres.

Each song is laden down with all the primitive yet versatile musicianship these blokes gave to the world: catchy three or four-chord songs that are heightened or weighted down with the depth and darkness they also created. Singer Bobby Leibling croons and wails over tunes that are reflective and personal in all the ways early punk and emotionally charged doom could be.

It isn’t just personal issues The Limit has taken on, lifestyles and the monotony of living in the modern world can be found on several tunes. From listening to this album a few times, I was left thinking this album signifies that the logic and wisdom of veteran artists should not be confined to history and this band formed with the hope of saying their lineup is still as relevant today as they were a generation ago.

Caveman Logic isn’t a nostalgia trip, it’s more of an amalgamation of good hard rock, punk attitude and doomy heftiness that tells how older musicians can still wow a crowd with new tunes and can still attract new fans who might not be familiar with their older work.

Add this one to your collection if you are in to any of the bands The Limit associate with, or want some new heavy rock mixed with the best elements from all areas of the rock spectrum.
