PET THE PREACHER - THE CAVE AND THE SUNLIGHT

NAPALM RECORDS

APRIL 25 2014

 

 

If you like your Stoner Rock with depth and plenty of light and shade then Denmark’s Pet the Preacher might just have released your album of the year. From opener ‘The Cave/Let your Dragon Fly’ to the last strains of ‘The Web’ this is both an album to make you listen and also one to make you think.

 

Opening track ‘The Cave’ sets the album up before the sonic onslaught of ‘Let Your Dragon Fly’ hits between the eyes - it’s a great track and nice pairing that lays down what the band is about -exploring the darkness and the light, delicacy and supreme heaviness.


If you were only partially convinced then ‘Kamikaze Knight’ ups the ante further, a real standout track which hints at the power to come. If that wasn’t enough, then the imposing ‘Remains’ – another amazing track with some great guitar – is a  really powerful song that just soars and brings the blues along with it too.


Centrepiece of the whole album – ‘Marching Earth Parts 1 & 2’ is another massive statement set upon a huge heavy groove.  Lyrically this is a dense album to pondering as it does Plato’s cave images, but it’s a beautifully interwoven theme that leads to some thought-provoking lyrics.  


On a fine album then closing track ‘The Web’ is that massive epic closer that had to happen, and one of the songs that leaves you wanting the album not to end. There’s some great guitar and such and amazing groove! I’ll bet that’s huge live?
