Biography

Seattle, United States (2003 – present)

Asva is a supergroup spreading a contagious disease of creative music. Formed in 2003 in Seattle, Washington. This band is a collaboration between members of Mr. Bungle, Secret Chiefs 3, Sunn O))), and Burning Witch. Their music unleashes a legion of doom music using minimal percussion, droning guitars, and dark poetry. Asva have successfully integrated intimate sounds with a natural progression in drone-rock music. Their epic compositions surround the listener with shimmering sonic energy, sub-harmonic tones, and low-end vibrations. Asva breathe new life into a sonic dimension, creating an atmosphere with haunting notes capable of sending a sudden chill through the listener’s ear. Asva also amplify ambience through delicate drones and visceral vocals in their world of minimalist music. Asva’s track titles are encrypted in a Cyrillic alphabet, and heavily influenced by the writings of Russian futurists like Aleksei Kruchenykh, Elena Guro, and Vasily Kemensky.

Asva is blowing through town and taking the drone rock medium to new lows. Not your average “doom” band, Asva’s saddlebags are filled with wooden chapel organs and subharmonic drones. Their packs are stuffed with electroacoustic sensibilities and hand-scribbled laments to the alchemical stars - they rode through walls of electrostatic fuzz to toll the mission bell on this side of the firmament - then they smashed your piano to splinters just for the sound it makes. In their wake nothing remains but tumbleweeds and twisters, dancing pointlessly in ageless dusty darkness.
