Asva Discography of CDs
||What You Don't Know Is Frontier CD (2008) |
Asva songs As the title suggests, Asva's second album maps an internal landscape - wild, vast, open - at once breathtakingly beautiful as it is potentially dangerous. A psycho-geographical vista of mountain highs, barren rolling plains and oceanic lows. Helmed by Stu
Dark ambient is a genre often handicapped by false gravitas but Asva's gray, enveloping soundscapes have an undeniable impact. Stuart Dahlquist, who has been a member of Sunn O))), Goatsnake, and Burning Witch, helms the project, and is assisted here by various musicians from the "drone doom" scene in the Pacific Northwest. FRONTIER's four tracks are long and sludgy, but never dull. "Christopher Columbus" employs whirring guitars and drums run through a delay for a tribal effect, while the epic closer "A Trap for Judges" genuinely terrifies over the course of its gradual buildup and eventual atrophy.

||Futurist's Against the Ocean CD (2005) |
Asva albums For those who are paying attention to the doom metal scene, Futurist's Against the Ocean sells itself without one note being heard. Just look at who is involved and their pedigree: G. Stuart Dahlquist from Sunn 0))) on bass, B.R.A.D. from Burning Witch on drums and vocals, and Trey Spruance from Mr. Bungle on guitar, piano, and tubular bells. Rounding out the lineup is John Schuller from Master Musicians of Bukkake on guitar, Jessika Kenney from Gamelan Pacifica on vocals, and Troy Swanson on organ. If that was not enough to get the salivary glands pumping, Billy Anderson is behind the producer's desk like he was for High on Fire, Sleep, and Melvins. For those familiar with the names, Asva's sound should come as no surprise. But where other avant-metal supergroups (Fantômas, for example, or Tomahawk) don't deliver on their promise, Asva takes a glorious heavy racket, removed from the regular tropes of the doom scene enough to make both this group and this album something really special. The opening track, "Kill the Dog, Tie Them Up, Then Take the Money," is the most conventional track, moving at a glacial pace, with guitars inching from one note to the next, almost as if the metallic drone of the amps were playing through the guitars, and not the other way around.
