Only one way to test the new #quad speakers, and that's with the latest offering from Queens Of The Stone Age. 'Villains' is a slightly different direction from previous albums, I personally love it with its hints of post punky synth electro vibes, yet it still has the Queens' signature sound and it got them to No.1 status. The artwork is outstanding, and this copy comes with 14 individual prints. Well Josh Homme (and the others obvs), you've done it again!
If you've haven't heard it yet, give it a listen! 👌
So I'm spinning this one again, and decided to make a post of it today. «Berlin», by the german trio of bearded hard rockers Kadavar.
First listen, I thought they sounded way too polished, way too clean, and all the songs so similar. Plus the Nuclear Blast stamp that still screams to me «90s euro-metal/that absurd catalogue with band shower curtains and everything alchemy gothic!», what a turn-off for a creature such as myself, whose time displacement rests in the early 70s.
Plus the weirdness of the photos in the inserts - what is this, Vogue? Why? So I was about to put this one up to trade when I remembered past mistakes of records gone forever and decided to give it another go.
Ok, definitively an awesome opening song, kicking ass from the start with 'Lord of the Sky'. Good, my foot is responding. Super fuzzy 'Pale Blue Eyes', and 'Spanish Wild Rose', with extra cheese on the lyrics (metaphors on roses and thorns, seriously), but also pretty good riffing going on. Catchy and all, we got ourselves an earworm!
Thousand Miles Away From Home must be one of my favourites, maybe because it balances the whole rythm of the album, being a bit more slow and heavy. Same for The Old Man, with thah sabbath like bass!
And it finishes with a surprising Nico cover in german, a good choice to end the album in a more somber note.
So yeah, from the third spin on I was sold. This is actually a pretty good record of effective, high energy rock n'roll and super tight musicianship - therefore, definitively a keeper! Riff after riff, I guess I got a bit overwhelmed at first. Sometimes a spin is just not enough.
I really need to see these guys live!
Kadavar, Berlin, (Nuclear Blast, 2LP, 2015)
