KADAVAR have released the second video for the Berlin visual album concept. Watch the video for “Filthy Illusion” on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel!
Together with long-time friend and collaborator Nathini van der Meer (http://nathinivandermeer.com), who has created artwork and videos for them in the past, they are working on their first “Visual Album”- 12 short films accompanying each of the albums’ songs, to be released once a month throughout the entirety of the year.
Commented the band: “You lose ground under your feet. No crutch, no hope, only a plunge into the deep unknown. Life always challenges you and you either fail or you grow out of it. No matter what you do, to get on your feet again, in the end it’s just a ‘Filthy Illusion’ and just right around the next corner there’s a another black hole trying to suck you right in.”
For the second video for the visual album concept, Nathini did just that – more visuality than a story line. An optical illusion perfectly matching the song that aesthetically captivates the audience and puts them in a kind of ecstatic trance. A bit trippy, a bit poppy, a bit dirty, just as the song itself, the video was shot with old, analogue lenses. A studio set up that matches KADAVAR’s live performances because in those, in their sound and light show you can also easily lose yourself.
The first video, “Pale Blue Eyes”, can be watched on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel!
KADAVAR recently teamed up with Scion A/V Metal and Skybound Entertainment (THE WALKING DEAD, OUTCAST) to release “Words Of Evil”, a brand new, unreleased song.
Commented KADAVAR singer Lupus: “Originally we had written the song for our album Berlin, but thought it would stick out too much and decided not to put it on the album. Nevertheless, I think it is one of the best songs we’ve ever written. At least it is one of my faves. A lot of NWOHBM and straight to your face!”
‘Words of Evil’ is available now as a free download via Nerdist (http://nerdist.com/kadavar-channels-sabbath-in-skybound-single-words-of-evil-premiere/).
