Editorial Reviews

Hard rock, stoner rock, doom and psychedelic cosmonauts, prepare to celebrate with wild delight! Kadavar is a big black shape with eyes of fire with an immediate sound that induces "chills and numbs from head to toe." Out of the blue and into the black, the trio's thunderous gloom sounds as if it was "dug out and dusted off" and is the absolute apotheosis of the "Sabbath sound." Cathedrals in fog emerge from the speakers as Kadavar's heavy blues-rock, awesomely loud minor key dirges and Geezer Butler-esque pressure roll bass lines create a paean to the dark mesmerizing power of the distorted Blues. Howled vocals full of ominous messages expressing mental anguish and macabre fantasies fly over a seemingly endless supply of monster riffs and rhythm-section chug (including very subtle Ward-like jazz qualities!) that slowly envelope the listener in a hallucinatory haze. Handpicked by both SLEEP and PENTAGRAM as support on each of the Gods of Doom's respective European tours this summer, Kadavar's strutting style and warm, analog tones are sure to transport audiences to proto-metal oblivion. Heaven's golden chorus sings, Hell's angels flap their wings!

An amazing band that combines hints of Asteroid into a pure 70's cocktail that few bands have mastered (i.e. Graveyard and Witchcraft), and pulls it off with their own fuzzy psychedelic style. If you love the new retro scene, this band has just shoved their way to the front of the line! Certainly KADAVAR can jam as hard as the rest (maybe even harder), but the highlight of this record is that the psychedelic moments ("Purple Sage") blend flawlessly with Sabbath-esque doom riffs ("Goddess of Dawn") in a trippy culmination of late 60's/early 70's psychedelic ecstacy. Pick this up...quick; I, personally, will never tire of fuzzed out wah-wah solos.

Debut album from Berlin, Germany--pure 70s style psychedelic hard rock power groove trio with
some blistering, trippy lead guitar riffs. Recalls bands like Graveyard, Cream, Leaf Hound,
Buffalo, Mount Carmel. Excellent bluesy acid-head retro hard rock nirvana.

If you're a fan of retro rock or stoner rock as most call it, this is up your ally. Amazing power trio that reminds you of blue cheer/ zeppelin

Listening to Kadavar, is like going back to the 70s and putting the the best of Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Hawkwind, and Zepplin all into one band and coming up with KADAVAR. These guys Rock the way Rock should sound keep them coming like this and you can't go wrong!!! AAA+++

I don't have much to add, really. All the previous four and five star reviews are spot on. If you're into doom/stoner/retro metal and you don't have this album, get it. If your friends don't have this album, tell them to get it. If your parole officer doesn't have this album, tell him to get it. Experts have stated that all the current turmoil in North Korea can be traced to the fact that Kim Jong-un doesn't own this album.

Other reviewers have made the Witchcraft/Graveyard comparison, which isn't at all unfair, but trust me: after listening to this album, you're not going to be saying to yourself, "Meh. These guys remind me of Graveyard... I think I'll listen to their 'Lights Out' album"; you'll be listening to this album again, and eagerly awaiting their next release. Seriously: if I owned this on vinyl, I'd have already worn out the grooves, I've played it so much. There's not a single second of filler on this album. Highly recommended.

German stoner rock/doom metal/psychedelic rock (take your pick) band Kadavar made their debut last year with this 6-song, self-titled EP. Like Graveyard, Witchcraft and Sahg, this bearded power trio has a sound straight out of the late `60s and early `70s.

Kadavar's sound is mostly old school Sabbath worship, but it also brings to mind a lot of those heavy psychedelic bands like Blue Cheer, High Tide, Flower Travelin' Band and the like. It's heavy, fuzzy and has a great groove and a nice sense of melody. There are only six songs here, so it's not quite as satisfying as a full-length album, but the flip side is that these six songs are all really good, so you're not getting any filler.

Obviously the whole retro/stoner scene is getting pretty crowded these days, and not all of these new albums are worth picking up. Kadavar, though, is worth every penny. If you're into bands like Graveyard and Witchcraft, or just dig that old Black Sabbath sound, this EP is well worth picking up. They've got a full-length coming later this year, which should be killer as well. Stay heavy!

This band sounds like weed. Literally...if marijuana could make a noise it would sound like this. Best with headphones and a bong...

If your interest is peaked at all by the samples, then just BUY the MP3 album. The sound is perfect as the stereo placement reflects that of '70s metal and beyond to melt your brain and bake your eyeballs in headphone ecstasy. It's worth every red cent to rock out like the Kings of old for a grand half-hour versus stuffing your face with a fast food sub-salad-bacon-burger-wrap.

The only problem is that now I want the physical CD...

Note: The import version features an extra track "Living In Your Head" from their single "Creature Of The Demon" and it's extra 7 minutes of awesomeness!
