Imagine, you're browsing a CD rack, and you pick this one. See the logo. The name. The artwork by Dan Seagrave. Every metalhead could say it's gonna be a death metal record.
Guess what? It IS death metal.

Kadavar hail from Italy (a country whose death metal scene seems to be growing everyday), and this eponymous album is their first one, after a demo called Moderns Visions Of Human Madness (2006) and an EP, Conjuring The Void (2008). Their influences clearly lie within the Floridian Death metal scene and bands such as Death, Morbid Angel, and so on... So yes, expect countless breaks, complex and incisive riffs, crushing drumming and a high complexity level. In this regard, the band delivers without doubt, as the musicians' technical level is as good as needed in the style. Plus, there are a few melodic parts that add a nice respite, just a little breath of fresh air before the assault starts again. The final song, Mirror Of Lies, is the typical example of what Kadavar can do when they calm down and go melodic, as it's an ethereal and beautiful instrumental. The production is nice, clean and powerful, with an emphasis during the solos, as the rest of the songs seems to be a little 'muted' in comparison.
