Kadavar - North American Tour 2020
Add to Calendar
For the few lucky bands who live to see a career blossom out of their passion, even fewer manage to avoid the hopeless creative stagnation that happens when hobby turns into ”work”. We all know that as soon as rock n roll starts to resemble going to the office, there are no winners – everybody's screwed. As the German trio KADAVAR – arguably the hardest working band in European rock – stand on the brink of releasing their fourth full length album, they look back at a seven year long career of doing things the other way around. Rather than this being the time to start talking about how music is just another way of paying the bills, they could not be more in tune with the main reason anybody starts a band in the first place – liberation. “We used to put ourselves under a lot of pressure,” says guitarist and vocalist Christoph ‘Lupus’ Lindemann. “We didn't want to be just another rock band, we wanted to be the best.
Ever since their inception in 2013 and the release of their first album in 2014 the band has been recognized as one of the hardest working in the German extreme metal underground. Melting the most sinister elements of styles like black metal, doom and punk, representing unfiltered pure primal rage, MANTAR have proven to be one of a kind. Their extremely intense live shows have been seen all over the world and blown away unaware audiences with their extremely tight and brutal performances. MANTAR is pure evil elemental force captured by only two uber passionate artists that strife for ultimate raw sonic power.»Ode To The Flame« will be out on April 2016 via Nuclear Blast.Commented the band: "The title »Ode To The Flame« is chosen in tradition of the debut record, »Death By Burning« to maintain the cleansing power of fire as the key theme. Fire is able to reset anything and will erase this planet one day from any plague that's been around. Furthermore it's obviously an ode to passion and iron will. »Ode To The Flame« isn't dramatic, it's drastic. By all means."
