The traditional sounds of ’70s really difficult rock and rock have never eliminated out of design (that is why they’ve earned the tag of “traditional”), but although each following generation has offered up bands wanting to tap in, recycle, and reinterpret these timeless teachings, this long lasting “retro” tradition has gained a particularly large and devoted legion of believers within the 2000s. A lot so that for each band seeking to the predictable Sabbath/Zeppelin/Aerosmith axis for motivation (find Wolfmother, Witchcraft, The Sword, etc., etc.), there are certainly others digging through ignored crates to get other, considerably less apparent, root resources like, for instance, the psychedelic acidity vacations of Iron Butterfly, the space travels of Hawkwind, the epic synthesizer-laden prog steel of Hurry, and yes, a good little Dark Sabbath, but from the frequently dismissed, past due-’70s amount of the Techie Ecstasy rather than State Die! albums. These extremely influences connect with Portland, OR’s Danava (pronounced do-nuh-vuh), that was produced in 2003 by Illinois transplants Dusty Sparkles (vocals, electric guitar, synthesizer), Buck Rothy (drums), and Dell Blackwell (bass), with extra synth participant Rockwell becoming involved period for the group’s 2006 debut through Kemado Information.
