#MusicMonday September 9th

This week’s #MusicMonday choice falls to the home of Folk, Melodic Death, Pirate & Symphonic Metal Pappa D.
For the few lucky bands who live to see a career blossom out of their passion, even fewer manage to avoid the hopeless creative stagnation that happens when hobby turns into ”work”.
We all know that as soon as rock n roll starts to resemble going to the office, there are no winners – everybody’s screwed.
As the German trio KADAVAR – arguably the hardest working band in European rock – stand on the brink of releasing their fourth full length album, they look back at a seven year long career of doing things the other way around.
Rather than this being the time to start talking about how music is just another way of paying the bills, they could not be more in tune with the main reason anybody starts a band in the first place – liberation.
“We used to put ourselves under a lot of pressure,” says guitarist and vocalist Christoph ‘Lupus’ Lindemann. “We didn’t want to be just another rock band, we wanted to be the best.
Now we are free from the idea that we need to hit the charts or fill big halls to become happy. To get to that point everyone involved needs mental maturity, and this satisfies me more than any full arena.”
Taken from the new album ‘For The Dead Travel Fast‘ out October 11th, as our Track Of The Week, we will play this every day at 6am, midday, 6pm and Midnight.
