War Is Ordered
Damavoi (Dah-Mah-Voy) was born out of destruction. When most people give up and go home, these four thrash monsters reformed and regrouped to reformulate one of Southern California's most anticipated musical groups of 2008. After Ashton (guitar) parted ways with his long-time band, he began to write his own songs that were more streamlined and groove oriented than his previous efforts. While he had been playing them for friends to receive feedback, he began to realize that he was slowly gaining momentum and actually forming the band, 'Damavoi' (the name of an impish house troll from Slavic folklore). As he gave a copy of the rough demo to his part time roadie and recording pal Phill (drums), who was playing in other bands at the time, he instantly found his drummer. While continuing to pass around this 4 song disc, he sparked the interest of one of his former band mates, Devin (Bass). Like catching a big wave, Devin began to paddle and dropped in on this breaking curl with full-on low end style. As the three began to hammer out the details of bringing this digital demo into live reality, they continued the search for the ultimate voice that would embody their distinct sound. As the music began to take shape they enlisted the help of "The Almighty Microphone Crusher" Max (vocals) and started writing the vocal parts for the existing demo. As the writing process began to exceed all expectations, opportunities presented themselves, and Max joined the team. Hailing from Moscow, Russia, Max began to impart tales and traditions of his homeland; one of them was the legend of the "Damavoi". Similar to the Chupacabra from South American folklore, the "Damavoi" was blamed for mischievous deeds around the house but was sometimes a helpful spirit. Hence the four-man-funk-thrashers adopted the name as their own. This amazing team of four has grown into a tight writing team where all perspectives are considered and all possibilities exhausted. In their very short existence they have broken into the Southern California music scene with a huge impact from delivering wild live shows and self producing their new full length album "The War Is Ordered" on their own start up label Baron Von Sloth Records. Damavoi maintains an active performance schedule, a huge MySpace presence, and is aggressively seeking positive, dedicated, and qualified representation to help them conquer the world!
