Review: Asva – What You Don’t Know Is Frontier [2008]

amazon-asvaSupplying seventy minutes of severe doom and drone, the latest effort by Asva is a sparse slow-churning affair that tries your patience more times than you can count before making good on resonating thick empiric riffs from the bowels of despair (“Christopher Columbus”). Interjecting odd nuances such as female choral vocals into its pitch black shapeshift (“A Game in Hell, Hard Work in Heaven”), Asva maintains an unorthodox atmosphere while retaining its vast soundscapes, yielding a listening experience whose waiting time warrants the big payoffs brought via cavernous riffs and thunderous cymbal crashes. www.southern.net -Mike SOS
