audiObelisk & Giveaway: Kadavar Stream Opener From Self-Titled Debut; Enter Now to Win the CD or Vinyl!

In honor of the album’s release tomorrow, July 10, on Tee Pee Records, I’ve been allowed to host a giveaway of 5 CD and 3 LP copies of the self-titled debut from German classic doomers Kadavar. Enter now by leaving a comment to this post. Please make sure your email address is filled in on the comment form, so I can contact you for your address if your name is selected. Winners will be picked one week from today. Good luck and thanks to all who enter.

[Please note: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered. Winners will be notified by email.]

To make the deal even sweeter (though, frankly, it didn’t really need sweetening), you can stream the opening track “All Our Thoughts” on the player below. Like the rest of Kadavar‘s Kadavar, the leadoff cut is a gorgeous exercise in analog tonality, rife with classic grooving and vinyl-ready mystique. Wolf Lindemann‘s guitars creep through with such buzzsaw fuzz they make any speaker that plays them sound like it’s covered in fabric, and the bluesy pulse in the bass and Tiger‘s drums hints at the time before heavy rock turned prog, right there in ’71-’72, before everyone realized what geniuses they were.

Obviously fans of vintage heavy and its modern incarnation will want to take note, but there’s something malevolent that the album hints at as well, and one of the aspects that makes Kadavar such an exciting listen is that you don’t necessarily know where the band is going to head from here. If, like Witchcraft, they want to move past these doomly beginnings and stretch out into extended indulgences of progressive classicism, they’re set up for that, but also, if they want to go darker into folk-hued cultishness, there would be precedent for that as well. In any case, bass heads will revel in Mammut‘s Rivoli, and the memorable chorus of “All Our Thoughts” is a great entry point for anyone who hasn’t heard Kadavar yet.

As always, I hope you enjoy:

Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!

Kadavar‘s Kadavar will be released in North America tomorrow, July 10, on Tee Pee Records and will be out on This Charming Man Records in Europe. Winners for the CD and vinyl will be chosen at random from the comments left on this post and prizes will be mailed out from the label. For more on Kadavar, check them out on Thee Facebooks or hit up Tee Pee‘s website. Special thanks to the label and to Action PR for coordinating this giveaway and stream.

    Finding Kadavar this year was like the first time I listened to Witchcraft and Graveyard. They slingshot you back to a time I truly have no recollection of other than what has been past down in the sacred sounds of vinyl. I only wish I could have stood on those sun-washed shores to watch Kadavar blast sonic sounds of psychedelia in my ears.
