'Pale Blue Eyes' music video released!

First video for »Berlin« "visual album concept" premieres!

After excessively touring with their recent album »Berlin« in 2015, KADAVAR has cooked up a new and exciting project for 2016, to keep them and their followers busy during the winter-break. 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.

The first video, 'Pale Blue Eyes', premieres today - watch it here http://smarturl.it/PaleBlueEyes

Lupus Lindemann wrote the song 'Pale Blue Eyes' when KADAVAR visited the Salton Sea on their first trip through the United States, playing the stage of the infamous "Range" at the Slab City Prom 2013. Slab City or "The Slabs" is a snowbird campsite in the Californian Sonora Desert 156 miles northeast of San Diego, where RV-people, outlaws and squatters from across North America formed a wild and lawless "city" from debris around the famous and colorful Salvation Mountain build by Leonard Knight in the 1980s.

There are no rules in the slabs (besides "Don't be an asshole") and during one of those memorable Slab City nights, the Kadavar guys found themselves dancing around the fire alongside this wild desert bunch, dressed in discarded ball-gowns, and watching the sunrise from atop the salvation mountain. This song, an ode about "a mysterious lady with pale blue eyes", is actually about cross-dressing drummer Tiger in his purple dress, looking so fine..

For the first video release of this visual album, Nathini van der Meer traveled back into the desert to find a real Slab City original - Mopard the Wizard of East Jesus - whom she followed on one of his walks through the desert. See pictures below.

The video for 'Pale Blue Eyes' is set to be released next week!

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 und 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/).

KADAVAR's »Berlin« can be ordered in various formats from the Nuclear Blast Mailorder: http://nblast.de/Kadavar
