   Towering psych-metal trio KADAVAR will release its new album, Berlin, onAugust 21 via Nuclear Blast Records. The record is the band’s third, following its 2012 debut, Kadavar, which was hailed as “perfectly styled 70s psych-metal from a Berlin trio that cheated on Led Zeppelin with Pentagram” by SPIN and 2013’s Abra Kadavar, deftly described as “metallic rivets of Seventies muscle rock” by the Austin Chronicle.

In advance of the release of Berlin, Popmatters premieres the band’s new video, “Last Living Dinosaur“, calling the song, “a perfect single“, “which has that guitar and bass tone that makes subwoofers hum and aging rockers weep with joy that there’s at least one young band around that totally gets it“. Watch KADAVAR’s Last Living Dinosaur” video now below.

   KADAVAR has also released a music video for the new single, “The Old Man“. Watch it now at this location.

   KADAVAR has met to worldwide acclaim since its formation in 2010. The relentless road dogs have toured the world incessantly, including European and North American headlining treks, and have shared the stage as guests of SLEEP, Electric Wizard and Saint Vitus. As part of its 2014 North American tour, KADAVARwas hailed as being “in the same class of like-minded label mates Graveyard” by SF Weekly, while Metro Philadelphia gushed that “KADAVAR has cast a spell on all fans of solid riff-driven yet doom-like 70’s hard rock à la BLACK SABBATH or PENTAGRAM.” Exceptionally strong performances as part of the Austin Psych Fest (video) and SXSW in 2013 and 2014 provided critics concrete proof that the threesome is the real deal.

Now, with the release of Berlin, KADAVAR puts its best foot forward, delivering a tour-de-force of an album that is at once powerful, expressive, confident, and commanding; inspired by both their beloved hometown and the hundreds of foreign cities the band has rocked during its never-ending global travels. 

KADAVAR has also released track-by-track webisodes, detailing each song found on Berlin. View the first three track-by-track videos at these locations:
