The good-time rock 'n' roll ensemble known as Asvatta have released their new flagship LP record album, titled, “Danger! High Noise Levels!” The album contains ten new, original tracks for a total running time of approximately 35 minutes' worth of entirely enjoyable rock music played deep in the groove and with a healthy charge of adrenaline. It is the maiden release of Asvatta, who have orchestrated the production of “Danger! High Noise Levels!” without the help or guidance of music industry representatives, resulting in a collection of absolutely independent songs played purely for the sake of their own sound as Asvatta has seen fit.
This sound is more striking than one might think. Asvatta is a powerhouse little trio in the tradition of Nirvana, Grand Funk Railroad, and other bands who have helped to prove that the right chemistry and musical principles can create a sonic wall that will knock a music fan flat. Their actual sound is hard to nail down, however. There are elements of classic rock, glam rock, metal, and pop rock in Asvatta, but really their tones are their own.
Their vocals are raw and excellent (see “3rd Degree”), their drums solid and driving, their guitars tasteful, soaring, and razor sharp, and as songwriters, their genius is plain to hear. They only record music they'd personally like to listen to, and this seemingly obvious philosophy leads “Danger! High Noise Levels!” to a place music fans will be excited to wind up, as the volume rises and the comic title becomes a literal disclaimer.
Concerning the themes of their record, Asvatta writes, “The album’s lyrics deal with relationships, politics, partying, unrequited love, stalkers, cultural decadence, and the zombie apocalypse.”
Clearly, they have a sterling sense of humor, too.
They name as main artistic influences (respectively) Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Reef, The James Gang, Styx, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Deep Purple, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, The Flys, Dishwalla, The Academy Is, Hot Hot Heat, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Matchbox Twenty, INXS, Maroon 5, Disturbed, and White Zombie.
If one can believe it, there is a little piece of every one of these legends in Asvatta, too, and the combination is sensationally delightful, heavy-hitting, and fun, fun, fun. If by the end of the record the listener has not yet fallen in love with this endlessly talented, quirky band, then he or she is invited to visit their official website to view their official LP release video, in which they introduce themselves personally and speak to the public from their couch in the most candid and amusing way imaginable.
“Danger! High Noise Levels!” is available online worldwide beginning spring 2013.
