Khadavra Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by alainPP

4 stars KHADAVRA is an atypical Swedish psychedelic rock quartet created in 2012. Influences on early PINK FLOYD, on jazz, on psyche-space groups such as MONSTER MAGNET, HAWKWIND, TOOL, ISIS, MOTORPSYCHO, GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR and the BLACK SABBATH veterans; by digging out certain beaches, the divine breaks of ANEKDOTEN and CAMEL come back; a little hints of KING CRIMSON and SIGUR ROS all that to say that we are in the experimental progressive psychedelic in my opinion, amen! They define themselves as digging deep into the untapped subconscious, seeking the unknown from within and expressing the sound found; a music inspired by common and unusual experiences on the surreal life we ​​ are currently living; sound on the dynamics, the emotion, the trance generated more than on the technicality of the notes, all amplified by the joint use of the English language and kindergarten.

"Stundom" for a psychedelic entry, soaring, beautiful, dreamlike, too short, which is used to prepare "Shapeshifter" which leaves on a deluge, what about a colorful musical maelstrom, sounds of the 70's embellished with more recent ones; the sound is clear, energizing at the limit of the jam as the ěRESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE do so well. "Lucid Revival" with a distinctive oriental ambiance, it feels like the gardens of a caliph in search of nirvana; it starts with an obvious PINK FLOYD title from their first titles, well it's heavier anyway. "Possession" continues with this Indian atmosphere, bordering on mantra; messy sounds, saturated guitars that twirl, crystalline keyboards that form saving breaks; it takes an effort to dive into this colorful musical meander, we dive, we fish you out, we push you back into the abyssal depths for a quarter of an hour; a masterful psychedelic atmosphere where Sebastian excels on the guitar; watch out for this dreamlike explosion every 10 minutes and its final. "Zoning Out" for an anachronistic, rhythmic track of the dark and vintage THE CURE, the fast instrumental break sends far and allows to be tamed easily. "10102020" for the Scandinavian medieval interlude with old acoustic zither.

"Katla" and the second big track which refers to groups such as ANEKDOTEN, LANDBERK and ─NGLAG┼RD; thunderous psychedelic highs, almost hard breaks at times, others with flute giving an acoustic, Scandinavian folklore aspect; final crescendo with explosion of the drums, vocals Ó la OPETH from the beginning to hang up if you got lost in space limbo. "Anhedonia" for the title creepy mantra, we went beyond, we approach Heaven, the air is strangely calm, serene, the voices hang on to the earth anyway; it is strange, singular, also resting after the flood before; "Vemod" which looks like a musical ox where the piano has the hand; dreamlike piece accentuated by the slide guitar then electrified; the finale returns to a soaring atmosphere beatified by the Gods themselves. "Hologram" for the album's melting pot; a colorful musical trance on POPOL VUH at the start, a monolithic voice and instrumentation that will tune, hang around; a mantra from the end of the 60's psyche pop then Floydien like on the tracks of "Animal", the more strident post rock guitar or stoner I do not know any more, allows to end in apotheosis.

KHADAVRA sets up with this opus a perfect musical oxymoron; mixture of dark light, warm darkness, a musical hyperbole imbued with sounds, emotions, ramblings influencing our mental associations; more than the psyche, we seem to be entering a hypnotic musical state here and it is not the classic French horn, didgeridoo, marimba, sitar instruments that will change our minds. So yes it takes progressive blood to dive into this maelstrom from which you will not be sure to return intact, on the other hand this album has the power to break a little more the progressive codes and to propose a new sound, this which is an undeniable plus at the start of the decade.

Review by steelyhead

4 stars I love discovering new bands to follow and, surely, Khadavra will be one of those bands. This is excellent material. The band clearly has its roots in the classic times of prog but the sound of Hypnagogiaand the writing is brand new only slight references here and there "Dissolve" (Focus) and "Mordangel (King Crimsonish) but You will enjoy it as much as I did this melodic writing, especially the longest track at the end, almost 28 minutes of pure bliss. I know this is a band that will be spectacular to see live and maybe someday I will. Who knows? in the meantime enjoy this.
Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
