Havah’s ‘Contravveleno’

vinile havah1500cd1500havah

Havah‘s third LP ‘Contravveleno‘ is finally out! Contravveleno (antidote) is their most razor sharp, dense and assertive effort, a cold plunge by one of Italy’s darkest bands into one of the countries’ most wretched pictures, a moment that united the toughest and brought out the bravest. Inspired by the stories of Ravenna partisans fighting off Nazi-Fascists during WWII.

 

I’m not big on sending quotes and all but very proud that folks all over the world have been responding to this LP and going beyond the language barrier reminding us that we’re not only going through dark times… there is more.

 

NPR“Contravveleno pushes the physicality of the genre in which they traffic with attendant sophistication and grace.”
Stereogum (Album Of The Week) – “Contravveleno is lush and expansive and pretty in its despair. It’s dark music for dark times, and losing yourself in it feels good.”

Knock knock,  it’s actually happening. Remember MDR001, the now classic  Havah/His Electro Blue Voice 12″ split? Well Havah is graduating, coming back with their third proper album ‘Contravveleno‘ out on September 15th. It is their most razor sharp, dense and assertive effort, a cold plunge by one of Italy’s darkest bands into one of the countries’ most wretched pictures, a moment that united the toughest and brought out the bravest.

Havah – Meno Di Metà

You can now listen to Havah‘s Meno Di Metà via Brooklyn Vegan. “His commanding baritone drives Havah’s snarling postpunk which packs a lot of hooks into the songs’ short running time“. This is one of the 5 gems for their side of the split LP with His Electro Blue Voice. Pre-Order.

 

HAVAH / HIS ELECTRO BLUE VOICE 12″ SPLIT announced!

havah_hebv_cover700x700

Listen to Tartlas the 19 minute banger by His Electro Blue Voice, the entire SIDE B from their 12″ split with Havah.

Noisey sums it up this way: “Their heaviness becomes a lullaby; you hum along subservient to the riff, those hums become chants, and those chants become shouts because you never knew a band could overwhelm like that. It’s self-renewal rock… So, you new to ‘em? Well, you’re getting the most intense crash course possible with Tartlas. Even at 19 minutes, everything in this song, from the sun-drenched feedback in the beginning to the freak-outs within, make up for some of the most attention-demanding rock. Blast this to cleanse, blast this to revel, blast this because, simply, it rules.”

You can already pre-order and read all about this intense baby here. This Havah / His Electro Blue Voice 12” split is Maple Death Records’ first release and was mastered by Brian Pyle (Ensemble Economique). Photography and artwork by the incredible Meg Remy (U.S. Girls). It comes as a limited edition dirty transparent green 12” gatefold LP. Mp3 download card is included.
