Rough Times by Kadavar on Apple Music

10 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Occupying a space-time continuum somewhere between 1972 and the outer Milky Way, German stoner-rockers Kadavar specialize in super-fuzz guitar bliss, bombed-out bass grooves, and unabashed amplifier worship. On their fourth album, hirsute vocals echo from beyond the rings of Saturn as meaty caveman riffs and sci-fi sound effects create a thick, lysergic atmosphere in which songs about vampires, wormholes, and skeletons swirl around the listener’s brainpan in a hallucinogenic fog. Fans of spaced-out, heavy '70s jams will rejoice.

About Kadavar

Steeped in the bluesy, brooding, bottom-heavy traditions of bands like Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, and Led Zeppelin, German psych-rock trio Kadavar spin '70s hard rock tropes into contemporary, stoner metal gold. Formed in Berlin by Christoph Lindemann (guitar, vocals), Simon Bouteloup (bass) and Christoph Bartelt (drums), the immaculately bearded retro-rockers released their eponymous Teepee Records-issued debut in 2012. The band inked a deal with Nuclear Blast the following year, the home of like-minded acts Witchcraft and Graveyard, resulting in their sophomore long-player Abra Kadavar (2013) and chart-topping 2015 follow-up Berlin. The summer of 2017 saw the release of a pair of singles, "Die Baby Die" and "Into the Wormhole," ahead of the arrival of their fourth studio long-player, Rough Times, which dropped later that September. ~ James Christopher Monger
