True legends never die. Only death is real. Hail the return of CADAVER!
Exploding back into action for the first time since 2004, founder member and deathly mastermind Anders Odden [SATYRICON] is back to reclaim his throne as one of Europe’s true death metal pioneers.
Emerging from the fertile maelstrom of the late ‘80s metal underground, CADAVER were among the first Norwegian extreme metal bands to gain any recognition away from their homeland. With a sound that mixed the raging brutality of POSSESSED and DEATH to a distinctly Norwegian sense of discord and disquiet, Odden and his teenage band mates secured a deal with Earache Records sub-label Necrosis and released their debut album Hallucinating Anxiety in 1990.
Despite being remorselessly busy with SATYRICON and numerous other projects, Anders Odden has been steadily accumulating material for a new CADAVER release for the last decade. The final piece of the puzzle fell into place when Anders forged a new friendship and artistic partnership with legendary MEGADETH (and former SOILWORK) drummer Dirk Verbeuren.
Darker, nastier and more pulverising than anything the band have released before, Edder & Bile is the sound of a death metal diehard rediscovering the fire and fury that first converted him to heavy metal’s side. The combination of Dirk Verbeuren’s unstoppable percussive battery and Anders’ leprous screams and limitless arsenal of scything riffs is both a bloody love letter to metallic extremity /and/ a new manifesto for twisted visions yet unrealized, all conveyed with utmost sincerity and passion.
