A political Psych/Noise/Doom No-input/Drums duo from Israel, CADAVER EYES have been described by WFMU’s Brian Turner as “conjuring equal parts Voivod, Residents, Swans, Butthole Surfers, Carcass, and Khanate into a blurred combo of noise-blast insanity and creeping doom”. Originally a psychotic one-man grindcore project, CADAVER EYES was launched in NYC by drummer david Opp circa the turn of the millennium and has since mutated into a very heavy slow minimal political doom duo of Drums and No-Input-Mixer. CE’s sound is raw, intense, disturbing and at the same time engulfing and immersive. CE have been featured on a compilation by WMFU alongside such artists as Mudhoney, Half Japanese, The Ex, Circle, Psychadellic Horseshit and others.

CADAVER EYES has recently released their new album Class Mammal – a 7 song primal cry in the face of our consumerist capitalist society, which includes covers versions of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Have You Ever Seen The Rain and Mudhoney’s Acetone. Their fourth release, it is their first since their 2010 release Mesarveem Lihyot Covshim which translates to “refusing to be occupiers” – recorded live at a protest event on the last day of the 2010 previous Israeli massacre in Gaza. Refusing to be Occupiers came on the heels of the 2008 split with Burmese (recorded live at WFMU on Brian Turner’s show).

In the fall of 2014 CADAVER EYES has toured the EU and performed at the 2014 LUFF festival in Lausanne, with additional shows in Munich, Bologna, Napoli and a grappa distillery in the middle of nowhere. They will be returning to Italy for a tour in April 2015.

“Hailing from Israel, Cadaver Eyes went from being a one-man grindcore outfit to becoming a full-blown ensemble of two. Low frequencies, and other assorted electronic elements, Cadaver Eyes conjure up equal parts Voivod, Residents, Swans, Butthole Surfers, Carcass, and Khanate into a blurred combo of noise-blast insanity and creeping doom. Cadavers at large: David OPP: Drums, Vox, Triggers, Eran “Zax” Sachs: no-input-Mixer, Making The Brown Note” – Brian Turner, wfmu
