Void of Polarity XI:XI is the culmination of the musical

direction STAVO has been pointing towards over the last 15 months.  It is a 9-song progressive rock/metal concept album in the vein of the band's musical hero's - Dream Theater, Rush, Iron Maiden and Queesnryche, just to name a few.  Written primarily during the 2020 Covid Pandemic, most of the music was written by guitarist Dan Staversky and ALL of the lyrics were penned by Vocalist/Keyboardist Sharon Kaplun.  It is a story about awakening truth and pursuing life's true path.  Void of Polarity was recorded at Green Room audio in Rochester NY, engineered and mixed by Matt Ramerman, produced by STAVO and mastered by Sam Polizzi at Sound Notion.

"Talented playing, creative epic songs! Something special for prog fans and people who just love a good song."

- Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal

"A rousing powerhouse of an albumthat both feels infinite and intimate, with something in it for truly everyone, ranging from instrumentals, experimental interludes & rock ballads of the softer and more uplifting variety."

- Indieshark Music Magazine

"Void of Polarity is an opulent effort, in which Stavo pull out all the stops, musically."

 - The Hollywood Digest

 

(2019)

"Stavo is a band that moves beyond the 90's hard rock it plays, stylistically and actually.  To habe it make sense, you'd have to add a few more years to the celebrated decade - like, say, 19911 or 19922.  And even then it would be hard to paint this band accurately - which works fine for this enigmatic outfit.  The music on the band's debut EP, "Everything in Between," sheds some light on where the EP is coming from and where it's going.  Primarily, there's the dichotomy between Sharon Kaplun's vocals and Dan Staversky's guitar that gets it all underway and maintain its speed.  The whole band flies melodically in the face of its own pending weight.  Stavo movesflawlessly, effortlessly and fine.  A good first effort.  Strong."
