MOTHER'S CAKE "No Rhyme No Reason"

09. February 2017

Prog and radio don't usually go together. An exception are the three Austrians with the allusion to Viennese Sachertorten art. The title song pops in with hammer-heavy rhythms, an over-excited voice and explosive guitar work, as usual in punk and crossover.

KADAVAR - Last Living Dinosaur (4:04)
Album: Berlin (2015)
Label/Distribution: Nuclear Blast/Warner

The riff monsters from Berlin have set a heavy rock monument with this disc of their adopted city. From now on all Black Sabbath epigones of this world will have to be measured against this album. And at the same time Kadavar have set the bar damn high for their future studio works.

Whole Lotta Phallus

It was pure sex, above all. Along with Jimmy Page's ubiquitous guitar and John Bonham's powerful drums, he seemed to be the driving force in the Led Zeppelin cosmos. Their highly potent and vibrant hardrock seemed like a permanent penis to the audience of the late sixties and early seventies.

For the newcomers MOTHER'S CAKE it's going really well

The Innsbrucker Trio was founded in 2008 in order to create funky, hard-rock and progressive-rock music. According to drummer Jan Haußels, Yves Krismer (vocals, guitar) and Benedikt Trenkwalder (bass) have been making music together since they were children, while he was just taking a more "normal" path. "My humble self came to music late and thanks to the other two. Before that, everything went according to plan: graduation, studies, office job. Now the direction seems to be a different one," he comments on the development of the band. They already won the Austrian version of the "Local Heroes" band contest in 2010 and finished second in the European final in Hungary. Last year they were voted Newcomer Band of the Year in their own country, and in August they attracted attention as supporters of Iggy and the Stooges.
