Few names invoke as much majesty in the world of melodic death metal than Swedish …
When German rock trio Kadavar debuted the international stage in Copenhagen at Heavy Days in Doomtown 2013, they left audiences spellbound.
Four years and four albums later, in November 2017 Kadavar did it again. At Pumpehuset, Copenhagen in the wake of their fourth album Rough Times they unleashed a set to remember. Now immortalised as the Rough Times tour edition bonus CD and a deluxe vinyl edition Live In Copenhagen, Kadavar fans can experience the vibe of this memorable concert.
The tracks have a very organic feel that adds a vintage haze to Kadavar’s rock sound and makes for a very authentic live album experience.
Live In Copenhagen captures the immersive ecstasy of Kadavar’s renowned live performance in a set that spans their four albums’ material. Opening with the grinding groove of Skeleton Blues , the live cut embraces the cheering crowd as the set moves to Domesday Machine [from 2013’s Abra Kadavar] and the tripped out guitar intro of The Old Man from Berlin . The smooth bluesy bass runs of 2012 debut album mainstay Black Sun ignites the crowd, who were treated to a slightly tweaked version of the song’s epic closing guitar solo. The live cuts of Kadavar’s familiar singles such as Die Baby Die  are rendered grittier, and indeed the live track of CD version closer Purple Sage  is notably an excitingly embellished version of the studio take. There is plenty on Live in Copenhagen to intrigue Kadavar fans.
The atmosphere of the live set is very tangible on Live In Copenhagen. The tracks have a very organic feel that adds a vintage haze to Kadavar’s rock sound and makes for a very authentic live album experience.
