Rolling Stone published an article on Scofield’s death highlighting his accomplishments.
Scofield joined Cave In in 1998, three years after its inception and after a revolving door of bassists. They released their debut album, Until Your Heart Stops, on Hydra Head that same year. The band later signed to RCA and in 2003 released Antenna, but returned to their Hydra Head roots for their subsequent albums. Scofield remained in the group through all five of the group’s studio albums and through the band’s evolving sound, which he helped shape with his growling vocals and somber bass tones. Cave In went on hiatus in 2006, but in 2009 they reunited and released two more albums.
Outside of Cave In, Scofield joined sludge-metal supergroup Old Man Gloom, fronted by Hydra Head and Isis’ Aaron Turner. Their most recent studio album, The Ape of God, were released in 2014 via Profound Lore. Scofield also formed and served as the frontman of Zozobra, which featured Cave In members Adam McGrath and J.R. Conners and then-Isis member Aaron Harris. source
