Berlin trio Kava Hu are filthy. Their brutal tech metal assault is immediately reminiscent of heavy hitters like Humanity's Last Breath and Frontierer through their snarling, angular riffs and massive production. Much like HLB, their lyrical concepts trend toward the apocalyptic, too. Says vocalist Leon Bochow of "Natural Selection":
"In keeping with the song's harsh and deceptive riffs, it is about the extinction of the human race. The lyrics refer to all those catastrophes happening on our planet that are man-made and not nature-made. It also speaks to the problem of us humans, who know that we are bringing the world as we know it to an end, but choose to close our eyes and not actively work against its decline. Like the zombies who go with the horde and don't use their brains to find their own way.
There will come a day when the Earth decides that it can no longer support the human race and we will become extinct. Maybe then we will finally understand that our addiction to consume more and more and our ignorant behaviour to build even more capital every day and more was a big mistake."
