专辑类型：Progressive Rock / Avant Garde
前卫摇滚乐队Ahvak来自以色列，成员有Yehuda Kotton (guitar), Ishay Sommer (bass), Udi Susser (keyboards, woodwinds, vocals, baglama, darbooka), Roy Yarkoni (keyboards), Dave Kerman (drums), Udi Koomran (computer)。
首张同名专辑发表于2004年，其中复杂多端的演奏和矛盾饱满的情绪已经充分体现了乐队对RIO风格的深刻理解。如果你钟情Univers Zero或Thinking Plague这样的乐队，那么Ahvak的这张专辑非常值得一听。
The Israeli band Ahvak, named after the Hebrew word for “Dust”, creates music of dark, ominous and compelling beauty. Ahvak's mesmerizing and electrified version of chamber rock blurs the boundary lines between styles and align the band with such Rock in Opposition style bands as Univers Zero, The Science Group, Sotos, Thinking Plague and the 5UUs. Led by two conservatory trained composers/keyboardists and also featuring guitar, bass and drums (by Dave Kerman, known for his work with the cutting edge avant/progressive bands 5uu's, Blast, Present, U Totem and more), the five musicians are joined by their engineer, Udi Koomran, who often extends the music into unique directions by his use of modern computer software, without compromising the integrity of the compositions or the vibrant performances. The resulting CD is a highly sophisticated and expertly produced work, featuring superb compositions performed by highly experienced musicians.
