Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands, and why?
The Metal scene in NZ is great at the moment, we’ve had the chance to party with a few of them, some good times, some sore heads haha. Our favourite NZ bands at the moment would be: Amachine, Deaths Door, Pariah, Project: Blood, Gunt, Subtract, Beastwars, and the list could go on forever.
How do you come up with your lyrics?
We have a huge list of band names we didn’t choose which have become our song topics and once you have a topic the lyrics write themselves.
Who would you most like to support live?
We will support anyone that likes to party. From NZ – 8 Foot Sativa. From Overseas – Devil Driver, Lamb Of God, Hell yeah.
How do you believe Kavort fits into the NZ music industry?
We understand that being marketable is a huge aspect of the industry so we try to be as commercial as you can be with Metal without losing any credibility.
How would you describe Kavort’s music?
Anthemic Death/Thrash Metal with little hints of black metal and a punk edge.
What is your favourite NZ venue?
The Royal in Palmerston North. Hanging out in the green room (other bands that have played there will agree).
How did you come up with the name Kavort?
It’s a play on the word “Cavort” which was word that was used to describe woman who danced in an inappropriate manner therefore were deemed to be cavorting with the devil. So we translate it to mean “The devils dance”, we just swapped the C for a K because it’s more Metal haha.
What can we expect to see from Kavort over the next year?
We will be in the studio soon to record an album and also a video clip then gig gig gig! Our next gig is supporting Gunt in Napier for their 100th gig!
Kavort is an originals death/thrash metal band that is definately worth watching. Their crazy show is unlike any other metal band in NZ. they are currently playing almost everywhere around the north island gathering support for NZ Metal. Album out soon!
