Larval biography
If you wondered what sound would have a band merging the post rock sound with an avant-garde approach, then Larval is what you were looking for.

The Detroit based band Larval was formed by Bill Brovold (Rhys Chatham) and Erik Gustafson (Blue Dog) in 1995. Their musical interchange was fruitful and included various ideas ranging from free-form jazz to country music as is stated in their myspace. They were soon joined by Beth Wilusz (guitar), Dean Western (bass) and Wil Osler (drums). This lineup however did not make it through and in 1998 they disbanded and Brovold created the second incarnation with Toby Summerfield (guitar), Josh Tillingast (bass), Colin Stetson (saxes), Marko Smith (drums) and Mike Smith (violin). This however was not a stable lineup and was subject to many changes (Zeena Parkins for instance) and the current lineup is:
Kurt Zimmerman (violin, guitar), Gregg Courtney (guitar), Scott (drums), DJ (bass), Bill Brovold (guitar and other stuff) and then there are guests on saxes and other instruments.

As for music, they have been comparisons made with "Glenn Branca, Godspeed You Black Emperor! King Crimson" and yet, while those ingredients can be traced in the music, the result is all Larval's/Brovold's original creation that can be heard and experienced. They have so far 5 albums to their record. The third, Predator or Prey is more avant-prog, noisy and experimental in nature while the fourth, Obedience (their first release through Cuneiform) has more moments reminiscent of post-rock sound and mood and yet also holds the adventurous approach. The use of tormented sounding strings is one major defining characteristic of their sound along with crunchy, noisy guitars and wacky saxophones that create this mass of loud sound and together you get a synergistic musical effect with an intensity and raw energy in some tracks and mesmerizing (post-rockish) and haunting spirals of sound in others that culminates in a total mess of instruments pouring out their sound. There is a variety of moods and sounds portrayed within each release and therefore you will not dose off or be bored. From quiet, ponderous moments to raw and aggressive parts, from slower and somber moments to faster and insane pieces; those albums are a guaranteed roller-coaster ride.

2006 sees their release of a double CD Surviving Death/Alive Why?
