We gave it a B

What is the sound of one van rocking? That would be the epic sludge riffage and hallucinatory fervor of Danava (Sanskrit, approximately, for Enemies of God). The increasingly hyped Portland, Ore., outfit’s ponderous sonic thunder, a sort of psych-prog-metal Frankenstein, is far too dense and unwieldy to touch the Billboard album chart. But to the ever-growing number of heavy-rock revivalists, Danava will no doubt be welcomed alongside their treasured Sabbath and King Crimson LPs.
