RingMaster Review: The Cavemen "The Cavemen"

With a name like The Cavemen, you instantly give a suggestion of sound and character before a note is flung at ears.

However, what Cemetery Circuit also features––some might say, most of all––is a big old dose of swaggering attitude. That’s what The Dobermen are known for: going hell for leather, not giving a shit what you or I think, and spoiling for a fight.
