DANAVA Signs to Tee Pee Records

Portland, OR sci-fi psych-metal rockers DANAVA (pronounced: DON-UH-VUH) signed to NYC’s Tee Pee Records. The group, who just completed a month-long European headlining tour, will enter an undisclosed studio this summer to record their Tee Pee debut and follow up to 2011’s Hemisphere of Shadows, which was called “a 37-minute contact high” by the Sacramento News & Review.

Darkly Hypnotic Herculean Heavyweights Sling Serious Riffs Like its 1971

Speedy and sinuous, DANAVA out rocks, out progs, out psychs and out retro-proto-metals all comers. Led by singer/guitarist/songwriter Greg Meleney, the quartet creates utterly unique astro-rock that is a thing of spectral beauty. Described as “a journey into a parallel sonic universe,” DANAVA’s side-long songs are sprinkled with spacey synth-y FX that push the band’s sound into outer space. This is progressive riff rock; barn-burning scorchers full of unison and tongue-twisting melodic runs that melt listener’s brains. DANAVA’s relentless fret-board wizardry – cast in the spirit of Iommi and Schenker – produces extended elliptical structures that live in a proto-magic era somewhere between Lemmy in Hawkwind and Lemmy in Motörhead, leaving sufficient room for wailing, noodling solos and a vocal croon that is halfway between Ian Gillan or Geddy Lee‘s high-pitched, semi-operatic prowess and Ozzy Osbourne’s insidious howl. The band’s songs list from side to side like a vessel cast adrift on an ocean of battering soundwaves.

“We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Tee Pee Records to unleash the fourth Danava record upon the underground,” comments Meleney.

“Many of our friends and contemporaries have passed through the ranks and we’re thrilled to march onward into the streets with them at our side.”

In the past seven years, DANAVA has unleashed a slew of critically-celebrated releases including the full length records Danava (2006), UnonoU (2008) and Hemisphere of Shadows (2011) as well as split releases with Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats and now – labelmates Earthless and Lecherous Gaze. The band has toured the world relentlessly both as headliners and alongside bands such as Down, Melvins, Witchcraft and Thrones.

In addition to Meleney, DANAVA features Zachariah Dellorto Blackwell (bass), Matthew Oliver (drums) and Andrew Forgash (guitar).

“What is the sound of one van rocking? That would be the epic sludge riffage and hallucinatory fervor of Danava… sonic thunder, a sort of psych-prog-metal Frankenstein… far too dense and unwieldy to touch the Billboard album chart” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Danava plays complex and difficult music. It’s metal, sure, but this is definitely metal of the progressive type. There are arpeggios. There are keyboards. There are odd time signatures. There are definitive devil horns of the high-in-the-sky kind. The hard, psych rock of Blue Cheer and Thin Lizzy is a starting point. The finishing line is somewhere very far and very weird” – WILLAMETTE WEEK

“Danava’s psychedelic prog-metal draws from the likes of early Black Sabbath and David Bowie, but only slightly… apocalyptic postpunkdom” – TIME OUT NEW YORK
