Despite their reputation of a three piece powerhouse, KADAVAR have been contemplating the idea to themselves with guest musicians for quite a while, the band decided to give it a try and started to rehearse with Matthias Schult (HEAT), followed by Konrad Krenzlin (OPERATORS) to revisit and rearrange material which normally would not be played on a regular live set. Out of the excitement for growing song structures and a more spaced out, thickly layered soundscapes drummer Tiger Bartelt asked his older brother David. Shortly after that Felix Meyer zu Venne, also known as the avant-garde noise generator RAUNE, joined the band that now calls themselves THE COSMIC RIDERS OF THE BLACK SUN for a one-off show to expose material in a different light.
