Kadavar are a Teutonic Teestubenrock band from the Grandfatherland, Berlin.
Accomplished retro in sound, appearance, and vintage equipment – Kadavar looks like they were trapped in amber in 1972.
The trio combines the filet pieces of the ‘70ies groovy, pompous hard rock, tinges of psychedelic and progressive rock and classic proto-metal era into a catchy, sexy mélange.
In a live environment, it is a powerful, quintessential rock experience that sonically connects with the audience and is presented in a serious manner devoid of irony.
With Kadavar nostalgia is omnipresent.
Cynism is not.
A dose of detachment and dissatisfaction with present times is.
The production channeling technique of their studio albums is reproduced on stage in a loud, engaging manner, showcasing Kadavar’s knack for writing memorable hooks.
A whirlwind of hair and beards with “Tiger’s” mesmerizing, dervish-esque drumming in the centre flanked by “Lupus’” on guitar and vocals on the left and the other half of the rhythm section with “Dragon’s” lava bass lines meandering on the right.
An earthy wall of sound produced by gentlemen with middle-earthy monikers.
The evening before Walpurgisnacht ended on the grounds of the University of Sydney with the faith in genuine rock restored.
