Pet The Preacher believe in powerful riffs. This characteristic runs through the song of the new album "The Cave & The Sunlight". This does not mean, however, that the catchy Stoner-Doom compositions of the Danish group would be uniform. Rather, the band oscillates between bluesy, booming and crashing arrangements, which are all held together by said riff monsters and a rough basic sound. This is a not exactly new, but at least consistent thrust, which sometimes also includes snappy hooklines and choruses. Depending on your taste, you can be inspired by groovy tracks like "Fire Baby" or the sluggish long-term number "What Now". Compared to the other songs, however, this track is characterized by a significant increase in tension. After a break the same minimalistic riff is repeated until overkill. What begins as a quiet bass solo ends in a crashing finale. The more this trio tightens the thumbscrews, the more captivating is its sound.
