ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On Navasio Pete Prodoehl was heavily influenced by the likes of Sleep, Neurosis, Om, Bongzilla, VoiVod, and even Fugazi. Slow, heavy, repetitive, droning, dirgeful, and a bit of doom all help round out these five songs recorded in February 2009.

The album Navasio tells the story of a race of beings left as guardians of a planet for 10,000 years. After a period of non-vigilance, a crescent appears in the night sky, a harbinger of doom for them, as the invaders desire to claim the resources the beings have taken for granted for so many years. The elders knew this day would come, and instructed the young that a steel bird (Navasio) existed, just for this purpose, and was prepared to take them into space, where a series of 23 satellites would guide them to safety upon a distant moon. While in flight, the beings become aware of the fact that there is no satellite 23, and they set down on the nearest moon they believe can sustain their lives. Navasio crashes upon this moon, and the being are trapped inside of it, with no hope for escape. Only now do the beings start to understand what is it they had on their home planet, and what they have lost.

This is the way the world ends
Imagine if Larry Clark, the unflinching avant garde director of Kids, had decided to do a science fiction. And that Clark hired Fugazi to do the soundtrack. Pete's collection of crunchy metal dirges might be the result. Although the genre may be called doom, I'm inclined to suggest a new one for this type of music: "Loss and Regret."

I especially like the way Prodoehl has knitted together the songs with a clear musical theme that marches you to its conclusion. It's almost difficult to listen to one without running through them all as they lead (I won't say "build") to the inevitable conclusion. To quote the closing lines of T.S. Elliot's major poem, The Hollow Men, "This is the way the world ends / Not with a bang but a whimper."
