    Also known as the "Order No." record, this was the first Cave In release on vinyl of our very own! These songs turned out much more metal-tinged than anything else we did, and we also managed to record another version of "Capsize" during these sessions (which later wound up on "Beyond Hypothermia"). The lyrics to "Crossbearer" were taken from a poem written by Adam that caused a tiny disturbance amongst our high school. Thankfully, this 7" and "Capsize" all remained exactly the same in their transition onto "Beyond Hypothermia".
