"Abra Kadavar also happens to be the band’s debut for Nuclear Blast, who, after hearing the first record, signed Kadavar to their mammoth metal label. Produced, mixed, and mastered by drummer Tiger in his own studio, this collection of songs, when compared to those of Kadavar, sound fuller while remaining fixated on heady, vintage vibes. Kadavar -- who are rounded out by guitarist and vocalist Lupus Lindemann and bassist Mammut -- have kept the music as stripped down and as much in line with the live nature of the recording as possible with only a few embellishments. The songwriting chemistry gleams through a deep daze of bluesy, proto-metal riffs and deft drum-work, slight dashes of Krautrock -- as heard on “Rhythm for Endless Minds” -- with trickles of Hawkwind mysticism dripping through the synth-splashed closer, “Abra Kadavar”. It’s music without pretence, and Lindemann’s vocals have an illicit charm to them that only singers from days-gone-by possessed.

As the cover would allude, the complete package is tied entirely to the late ‘60s and early to late ‘70s. But what is crystal clear is that Kadavar’s love for the music of this era lacks ulterior motives: You get the feeling this trio would rock out these exact tunes regardless of who thinks this style of music is popular. “Doomsday Machine” takes us back to the origins of metal, both “Dust” and “Fire” captivate in the way that only ‘70s Sabbath could, and in the end it’s altogether intoxicating and cripplingly addictive. Those who claim that Kadavar haven’t an ounce of originality are clearly miss out on the point here. This is not about reinvention, this is reinterpreting the masters -- and few bands are this convincing. Thankfully Kadavar now have a larger audience waiting to tune in and trip out on their "Liquid Dream", and there is no reason why this band’s blues-bruised, proto-metal stomp won’t shine bright beside Witchcraft, Orchid, and Graveyard on Nuclear Blast’s budding roster of retro rockers."
