Here is recent reviews and interviews for Caveat's latest CD, "Red":
Germany's Progressive Newsletter gave "Red" a 10/10. The magazine is available for purchase here.
 
Calgary's FFWD Weekly Newspaper called Caveat "progressive melodic metal at its best from some of the most technically adept musicians in the city." You can read the article here.
 
Greece's Flights of Pegasus says Caveat's "powerful characteristic is how tight, technically and daring in inspiration they sound. It is certain that their motives are creativity, good will and love for what they do. It is one of the rare circulations that direct the audience to enjoy good stuff performed by skilled musicians." "Red" has also been playlisted to Flight of Pegasus' internet radio station. The full review, written in Greek, can be found here.
 
Caveat was a featured artist in the Hot Flashes section of Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles issue #109 that says "From Alberta, we've got Caveat playing a thrash/death/prog hybrid on their manic new record Red-the hybrid emerges as the Canadian prairies' signature sound. Red has the listener solidly impressed at Caveat's musicianship, songwriting and spastic speed.
 
Caveat was chosen as a featured artist in the Podsafe Music Network Newsletter for March 08.
 
The title track "Red" is #6 of the Top 10 metal songs played on the Podsafe Music Network for the week ending 1 March 08.
 
Netherlands' Lords of Metal gave "Red" an 85/100. "Caveat has given a twist to complexity and diversity, but without overdoing the technique too much. Not just some plain metal but a load of extreme progressive death metal combined with funk and jazz parts, which are weighed down by unusual, surprising changes in atmosphere and pace and peculiar, wondrous arrangements. The result? An intriguing, monstrous musical trip of almost three quarters of an hour. But the diversity does not end with the music; also when it comes to the vocals this is an enormous rich, varied and almost theatrical CD." You can read the entire review here.
 
Caveat's Greg Musgrave was interviewed by PunkTV.ca's Dixon Christie. You can check out the interview here.
 
Caveat was interviewed as part of a featured spotlight on "The Greatest Underground Show On Earth: Vol.2" on the Vinland Radio Podcast. Also interviewed on the show were Inner Surge and Strings of Mass Destruction as well as playing 9 tracks from the album. You can hear the full show here.
 
"Red" is sitting at #13 on the Top 100 Metal Releases chart on LegalDownload.net. (Feb 08)
 
Keith Fraser says "the new CD ‘RED’ from CAVEAT, bends the metal, twists it, heats it up and leaves it on the cold hard ground as a pool of hot bubbling molting thrash metal masterpiece. CAVEAT has produced an album that is sometimes bombastic and grand, other times dark but always with high-speed prog metal blasting with every deep cut. CAVEAT has produced an album that is complex with an atmosphere that is hot . . . ‘RED’ hot." You can read the full review at Caustic Truths here.
 
Caveat was named as Artist Spotlight at TheProgFiles.com for January 2008. Riding on the tails of a top notch review, this feature includes an interview with Caveat's Greg Musgrave. They summed it up by saying "Caveat - caution: a warning against certain acts: "a caveat against unfair practices" Here's your warning... These Canadian Prog metal masters play with such ferocity and technical expertise your listening appendages may very well bleed from the crushing musical torrent. With their latest sacrifice to all that is heavy, "Red" is quickly gaining momentum and more than worthy of acquiring. You can read the feature and interview here.
 
Caveat had the honour of being named among the Top 3 local acts for 2007 by Calgary's CJSW 90.9FM.
 
Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles gives "Red" an 8 out of 10 and says "Caveat is a manic, speedy, spastic-addled band that combines the best elements of fast melodic death, thrash, prog, and straight-up metal to create a surprisingly cohesive and interesting record. Call this western Canada’s emerging signature sound, Caveat doing the scene proud with this strong release that plays well, the listener being impressed and re-impressed as the record continues." The album also made it onto editor Tim Henderson's and reviewer David Perri's Brave Picks lists for issue #107.
 
The Prog Files give "Red" a 4.5 out of 5 and call it "full of surprises, the band tastefully colors the canvas of their music... a not-so-expected element of hard-core bands. I have to sum this album up with the word: diverse. Caveat is in a league of their own granting us bone crushing metal that pays homage to the prog greats... a fine marriage indeed." The full review is available here.
 
Neo-Zine calls Caveat "both sweet and scalding", with "Red" being "so fresh and new that its hot! The band seems comfortable at any speed or tempo, and they create a structure that allows them to adjust those things very effectively. Of course, the pit friendly mosh parts are a favorite. They are tempered with nice melodic passages and sweet sounding solos. This CD might go over with a larger segment of music fans, but it will probably be be just "hard" enough for extremists, purists, and hard core genre conservatives." You can read the full review here.
 
Caustic Truths magazine recently caught the buzz surrounding Caveat prompting editor Richard Tanana to interview the band himself. You can read the interview online here.
 
Red has been tearing up campus/community stations across Canada staying in the Top 10 Metal charts for the 3 months since its release.
 
The Metal Observer gives "Red" an 8.5/10 calling it "a foundation made up by at times dizzyingly complex rhythms and breaks, held together by immensely catchy melodies, everything topped off by the very varied vocal approach, which brings us guttural Death growls as well as aggressive vocals and clear singing as well, sometimes layered together or going hand in hand as if it was the easiest thing in the world, while the music runs circles around you." You can check out the entire review here.
 
Caveat's "Red" charted at #3 on Toronto's CHRY 105.5FM and #6 on Edmonton's CJSR 88.5 FM Loud charts during the week ending 7 August 07.
 
Absolute Underground magazine says "from the moment I laid eyes on the third and latest album from Caveat, I was immediately drawn to the slick and prominent clear red jewel case, as well as the powerful cover art that lay within. Caveat, with their progressive and experimental style of metal, also seems to take the same care in maintaining and blending a nice balance not only with the visuals, but within the music as well. This album has a variety of everything from rippin' epic yet sometimes dark guitar melodies and thrash esq. drum beats to death and power metal vocals and beyond." You can read the full review on page #39 of the June/July issue here.
 
Caveat's "Red" debuted at #3 on Lethbridge's CKXU 88.3FM charts for the week ending 10 July 07.
 
MetalNetRadio.net gives "Red" a 9/10 and says "complexity and diversity comes to mind while listening to Caveat's latest release 'Red'. One can't pin down one word to describe the audio assault that the band brings to you with the 7 unique tracks presented. 'My Messiah', 'M.O.D' and 'Vindication' are all prime examples of how Caveat take you through a maze of riffage, time changes and colorful vocal melodies. So much to digest within every song, this album will have you listening over and over again hearing new things each time. Caveat's 'Red' puts the world on notice that Calgary Alberta Canada is the home of new original heavy metal."
 
Caveat's "Red" debuted at #2 on Toronto's CHRY 105.5FM Loud charts during the week ending 24 June 07.
 
MetalNetRadio.com charted "Red" at #25 for all metal albums released in the month of June 07.
 
The release of Caveat's Red was the featured press item on the music industry's promotion site, Mi2N.
 
Caveat was featured in the February/March 2007 issue of Absolute Underground. You can check out a full page interview with the band on page 6 of the paper here.

It is cleared for addition according to the progfreak PA chart; so now It's a matter of preparing the addition (bio, discography...).  http://progfreak.com/Caveat,_dbe,artists,_auto_8462494.xhtml?path=pa/recent
The first step on the road to wisdom is the recognition of one's own ignorance.

Want the addition to happen quicker? Just write a bio with info on website of the artist and send me all that via PM and they'll be added in a heartbeat.
 
Without collaboration, it'll take much longer, as there are many other bands that also have to be added. (Even though Burritounit, PMT's adding-machine, may be on Caveat's case already..LOL)
