Known as Europe’s unstoppable force in the rock and roll circus, KADAVAR is the latest name added to the already amazing lineup of Rockstadt Extreme Fest 2023.
Steeped in the bluesy, brooding, bottom-heavy traditions of bands like Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, and Led Zeppelin, German psych-rock trio Kadavar unapologetically spin ’70s-era hard rock tropes into contemporary stoner metal gold. Known for explosive live shows, the band play hundreds of dates a year, and have done so since issuing their 2010 self-titled debut. That hard work paid off as each album sold better than its predecessor. Their third album, 2017’s Rough Times, entered the German album charts at 18.
2019’s For the Dead Travel Fast registered inside the U.S. metal Top 20 by celebrating all things fuzzy, trippy, and creepy. 2020 saw the band move to Berlin’s Robotor Records and release the uncharacteristically moody The Isolation Tapes during the pandemic. At the end of 2021, Kadavar teamed with American ex-pats Elder to release the conceptual, six song, prog-psych tome Eldovar: A Story of Darkness & Light.
Their style has been categorized to have a “riffed psych rock and doom-like sound” with influences from Black Sabbath, The Doors, Hawkwind and Led Zeppelin.
Guarded by the Rasnov Fortress up the close by hill, Rockstadt Extreme Fest 2023 will take place between the 2nd and the 6th of August, 2023 just 30 minutes away from Brasov, in Rasnov City. The festival grounds will host 3 stages and no less than 70 bands on all 5 days but this is not all of it. You can enjoy tasty food or surpass your personal beer drinking record at unexpected good prices you will find nowhere else. And we’ve also got some top tourist sites around the festival area: the Rasnov Fortress, Valea Cetatii Cave, LiBEARty bear reservation or, nonetheless, the infamous Dracula’s Bran Castle.
