about

Niklas first on the band‘s name and the current state of play:
“The word KADAVRIK doesn’t really exist. It derives from the German word “Kadavergehorsam” which means ‘blind obedience’ in English. Our present release “Bioluminescence” brings together our 2 last albums, with about 90 minutes playing time, and gives a straight and very direct overview of our recent creative work.”
Oliver Rude on the album title:
“Bioluminescence is a phenomenon in nature which causes animals to glow in the deep-sea. Transferring this to Metal, it expresses the fact that we feel we have the courage to strike out hard and deep, right to the heart of the “dark” Metal scene.”

about

KadavriK Wesel, Germany

With their fourth album GRIMM I & II, which is released on the 26th of June 2015 via newborn label Testimony Records, KadavriK settle a score with pigeonholing. The German band offers a moony and aggressive mixture of Atmospheric Black Death Metal, plunging into lesser-known narratives of Grimms’ Fairy Tales. The album will be available on vinyl and CD. ... more

Track Name: Insight:Down
Once I saw a weak man standing right in front of me.
He was crippled, frail and his dark eyes I couldn't see.
His feet could hardly keep him up, he almost fell,
Four words he whispered: I go to hell!
Something you did wrong!
"Life has made me weak."
He goes on: "Once I was strong."
- I don't care, I'm not that aware!

Chorus:
A failed man you are,
You have gone too far.
Calm down take a rest
to take some weight of your chest!
Hero you'll never be.
The sky you'll never see.
Calm down take a rest
To take some weight of your chest!
There is no more to take,
Give your heart a break!
The failed man you are
Pushed it too far.
Calm down take a rest
To take some weight of your chest!
Hero you'll never be.
The sky you'll never see.
Calm down take a rest
To take some weight of your chest!
Run out of life!
Self-destructive drive!

Please come down and take a rest
To take some weight of your chest!
Realize you've gone too far!
Maybe it is not too late to try to escape your fate,
But the sky you'll never see!
Look at you! Take one good look!
In half a year your nothing more than dust is.
If you ask me: This is Justice!
You look like a living scarecrow with bottle of strong rum.
Your skin fells like a piece of paper - what have you become?
There is more alcohol than life in your veins.
Your flesh taints!

Chorus: 1x

You have pierced a bleeding hole
Into the beauty of your soul.
Please come down and take a rest
To take some weight of your chest!
Realize you've gone too far!
Maybe it is not too late to try to escape your fate,
But the sky you'll never see!

I feel glass instead of skin
When I try to take your hand.
In your face I see a grin,
In this mirror all I see
A skeleton of what once was me!
Track Name: On The Edge To Lose It All
The skies that once shined blue for us
Were overwhelmed by a cold night.
A tempest rises and tears us apart,
With thunder and lightning it swallows all light!

We're on the edge to lose it all,
Less than a step and we will fall.
Through the seas of clouds we dive
Before in sanity we arrive.

All last years they made us sad,
Hope their conscience now makes them mad.
Soon we'll be awaken with all our grief taken
The wind of change rushes your hair
And blows away what was so rare

We're on the edge, we’re on the edge to lose it all,
Less than a step and we will fall
Through the seas; through the seas of clouds we dive
Before in sanity we arrive.
Every minute we waste is a minute too much,
We waste no more time leading this life.

Every minute we waste is a minute too much,
We waste no more time living this hell!
A final look into your eyes,
They're full of love and freed from lies
To eternity we rise...
Track Name: Icecold Winter's Grave
My feet are numb and cold
Frozen flesh turns blue and black
‘Cause winters fist rose up
To hold me down
Hold me back from you
Away from here, far away from my dear
Snow and ice, my biggest fear
Cried far more than one tear
Please don’t let my heart freeze
I regret! Cryophobia!

Warm me! – He won’t!
Melt the icecold winter’s grave!
You freeze? – I do!
Wait for your icecold winter’s grave!

Frost, you freeze my heart
Which breaks apart
Resurrect me!
Snow like a shroud on my mind
You shall just find
An icy rose
Where icewind blows

So cold, ‘cause winter’s fist rose up
To hold me down
Hold me back from you
Away from here, far away from my dear
Snow and ice, my biggest fear
Cried far more than one tear
Please don’t let my heart freeze
I regret! Cryophobia!

Cryophobia!
Warm me! – He won’t!
Melt the icecold winter’s grave!
You freeze? – I do!
Wait for your icecold winter’s grave!
Track Name: Alive With Nothingness
Raging fist smashes innocent face
I’m helpless in their brutality maze
Alive with nothingness!

The pain of others is your only way to feel above
Your violence helped me to believe in an evil god
Far beyond enlightment your perverted values rape my ideal
Torturing the poisoned world I once wished to heal!

The hateful declare: Rise of stupidity
Their rusty blades slice the roots of humanity
Alive with nothingness!

The illusion behalf charity is just another tale
Forgotten in the depths of hate, you’ve chosen the dark trail
You destroy what I create, your only sense in life
Is to trample down for what I fight, and hail the savage drive!

Born in the dark
On the side
Where’s no guiding light
Seek for a sense and find disgrace
I should feel sorry!

The pain of others is your only way to feel above
Your violence helped me to believe in an evil god
Alive with nothingness you have to go your way
Leading to hell on earth, not catching any ray of hope!
Alive with nothingness!
