7/10 gbar Customer review, 14th August 2017
After almost imploding under the major-label pressures and demands of constant touring off of their previous record 'Antenna' (an album the band didn't especially like but the public seemed to love) Hydra Head Records gave Cave In as much time the band desperately needed to produce their next record. Perfect Pitch Black has the mixture of brand new material grounded in the band's core aesthetic, and older material previously released on EP. As a result, this record sounds acts as both an introduction and an expansion to Cave In. "Down the Drain", one of the older cuts, is a beautifully layered piece that instantly takes you on a journey that is almost akin to My Bloody Valentine, a contrast from their usual riffage and harmonics crossed with blood curdling screams. But the rest of the album has its usual fare of chugging guitars and breakdowns, soaring vocals and various time signatures and rhythm compartments. Although some might not call it a 'new' Cave In album, this is definitely a brand new Cave In, a band that needed to feel alive again after the troubles they had.
