Cadaver Premiere “Morgue Ritual” Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Edder & Bile”

Cadaver, the band featuring Anders Odden (Satyricon) and Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth), have premiered a new video for their new song “Morgue Ritual.” This track is from the band’s new album “Edder & Bile,” which will be released on November 27.

“Edder & Bile” Track Listing:

01. “Morgue Ritual”
02. “Circle Of Morbidity”
03. “Feed The Pigs”
04. “Final Fight”
05. “Deathmachine”
06. “Reborn”
07. “The Pestilence”
08. “Edder & Bile”
09. “Years Of Nothing”
10. “Let Me Burn”

Odden said the following about the record:

“I met Dirk Verbeuren during the 70000 Tons Of Metal festival in 2014. He was sitting in for Frost in Satyricon and we played two shows together. It turned out that Dirk was a huge Cadaver fan, and at the time, I had several songs in the making for what I thought might be a solo album. The idea of kicking this all into the third version of Cadaver came into life and we started to share ideas. We had about 10 songs by the time Dirk was on tour in Europe with Megadeth in 2016. They played in my neighborhood and we spent the afternoon jamming. Cadaver was reborn. I started to pile up ideas for new tracks and time went by.

I really wanted this to sound like Cadaver and be up to date, yet timeless. The music is what we both consider as death metal. I have my own way of writing riffs and he has his own way of expressing them on drums that just fits and sounds great.

We finally found the time to hit the studio in early 2019 and recorded the album in L.A. where Dirk lives and works.

The music just sparks of energy and freshness from the experience we had jamming together. We are truly kindred spirits and are in this for the long run, for sure. ‘Edder & Bile’ is the manifestation of our commitment to music and the start of everlasting life for the old Cadaver.”

Verbeuren added:

“‘Hallucinating Anxiety’ threw me for a loop when I first heard it as a teenager. As such albums tend to do, it quickly became one of my favorites. I followed Cadaver through various incarnations over the years, and when the chance to work with Anders unexpectedly presented itself, needless to say, I didn’t have to mull it over.

Our goal was for ‘Edder & Bile’ to capture the spontaneous, filthy energy of death metal. It was an effortless collaboration — things just naturally fell into place and the result speaks for itself. Feast upon this, death fiends!”

The following was said about the song:

“The track is an attack on overreaching governments — highlighting financial superpowers, forced vaccines, targeted false flag operations and frequency harnessing of the masses to achieve a one-world government.”

Harris added:

“Although it may sound doom and gloom, it’s meant for a positive outcome from creative efforts inspiring change. Inspiration through art is essential in our world, with our need for social interaction, adaptation, individualism and personal transformation. If Brave The Cold doesn’t get your attention, what will? It’s time to wake the fuck up!”
