Annotation

from Cuneiform Records Site:
The Israeli band Ahvak, named after the Hebrew word for “Dust”, creates music of dark, ominous and compelling beauty. Ahvak's mesmerizing and electrified version of chamber rock blurs the boundary lines between styles and align the band with such Rock in Opposition style bands as Univers Zero, The Science Group, Sotos, Thinking Plague and the 5UUs. Led by two conservatory trained composers/keyboardists and also featuring guitar, bass and drums (by Dave Kerman, known for his work with the cutting edge avant/progressive bands 5uu's, Blast, Present, U Totem and more), the five musicians are joined by their engineer, Udi Koomran, who often extends the music into unique directions by his use of modern computer software, without compromising the integrity of the compositions or the vibrant performances. The resulting CD is a highly sophisticated and expertly produced work, featuring superb compositions performed by highly experienced musicians.
