Kadavar's 'abra kadavar' lands on german chart
"Abra Kadavar", the second full-length album from German psychedelic hard rockers Kadavar, has entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 42. The Cd was released in Europe on April 12 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Comments the band: "It almost appears a little inappropriate to us that we've entered the charts with music like ours in this day and age. However, we're absolutely delighted, of course — especially since we've worked so hard on the album. In particular, our gratitude goes out to all the people who are interested in our music and thus support us. Thank you!"

"Abra Kadavar" was made available as a limited digi version, including a bonus track, as well on different vinyl versions.

The track listing for the Cd is as follows:

01. Come Back Life
02. Doomsday Machine
03. Eye Of The Storm
04. Black Snake
05. Dust
06. Fire
07. Liquid Dream
08. Rhythm For Endless Minds
09. Abra Kadabra

Bonus track:

10. The Man I Shot

The photo for the cover artwork, which was taken by photographer and ex-Stereolab drummer Joe Dilworth, can be seen below.

Comments Kadavar frontman Lupus Lindemann: "Joe had already worked with us for our debut album. He's one of the best photographers I know and always understood our ideas, which is why we wanted to cooperate with him again. He proudly brought an old camera from the '60s and a color film that had been expired for ten years to the shooting — hard to get and highly coveted, because it causes unpredictable deviants as far as color and contrast are concerned. As one can see: We’ve used this very film!"

As far as the album recordings are concerned, Kadavar drummer Tiger explains: "After last year's final show had been played in mid-December, we started writing new songs. We've already had a couple of finished tracks in May 2012, but those were eventually released on a split Lp with Aqua Nebula Oscillator in November 2012, which is why we started at square one again. As we knew that there was no procrastination and no going back for us, we sat down for two weeks straight to finish composing with total commitment. We're perfectly happy with the outcome — I'd even say that 'Abra Kadavar' comprises the best compositions we've created to date. The songs are more diversified, the ideas feel more spontaneous. Moreover, we've tried to capture much more of our live energy, which is why we've recorded almost everything all together in one room, with the amps turned up to the max — solely the vocals and a handful of guitar solos were added afterwards."

It was already with 2012's eponymous debut album that the three-piece from Berlin casted a spell on all fans of solid riff-driven-yet-doom-like '70s hard rock à la Black Sabbath and Pentagram. Marrying this with the spacy psychedelic approach of early Hawkwind and mixing in a distinct own touch while preserving their icons' warm vintage charm can doubtlessly be considered the trio's key to success. Astoundingly high vinyl sales and support slots with such bands as Sleep, Saint Vitus, Pentagram and Electric Wizard as well as festival appearances at Stoned From The Underground, Yellowstock and Fusion, among others, underline Kadavar's status as one of the scene's most exciting acts to watch in 2013.

Kadavar is:

Lupus Lindemann - vocals, guitar
Mammut - bass
Tiger - drums
