After working nonstop in the studio for four months, Berlin, Germany-based classic rock overlords Kadavar have finalized the production process for their newest album, Berlin. The third full-length in the band's catalog, Berlin truly reflects the diversity of the album's namesake.
Drummer Tiger states: "About ten years ago, when we - independently of one another - moved to Berlin, we just wanted to break free from home and do something new. I thought it was comfortable, to blend in and just live from day to day. A lot of very long nights and so many completely different people at one place. Where there are opposites you can always ground yourself. We’re all different, come from different places but have managed to create something together we all like. I think the Belrin lifestyle has influenced our band very much and therefore fits perfectly as the album’s title."
Though recorded live in the studio on the band's own analog gear again, it's distinctly audible that this time round the record turned out even deeper as far as songwriting and arrangements are concerned - and that Lindemann, Bartelt and Bouteloup have spent more time on the recordings than ever before.
Tracks like "Filthy Illusion" and "See The World With Your Own Eyes" knock your socks off with their boisterous energy. "The Old Man" and "Last Living Dinosaur" deliver post-modern madness at its finest. In 2015, Kadavar's songs have evolved to become the ultimate reanimation of the seething primordial soup rock music has once emerged from.
