TO DUST is a soundtrack to our current world. Make no mistake, this is the soundtrack of a horror film the likes of which you cannot fathom. You are a character in this story, however the end has not yet been reached. Awaken to the terrors you live among. Educate yourself to the atrocities that unfold in front of you. Do not live in voluntary blindness. Force yourself into perpetual daydreams and you will live in an endless cycle of nightmares.
TO DUST formed in the latter part of 2013 with the intention of making the most ferocious, intense, and menacing extreme music possible. Having spent their time in various death metal, grindcore, and hardcore bands over the years, TO DUST fuse contemporary and classic underground influences to create a sound intended to shatter your eardrums and bang your head into oblivion.
The band's debut EP, Descend, was released as a split 12" with Dirk Verbeuren's (Megadeth/Soilwork) & Shane Embury (Napalm Death) grind project, Bent Sea, through Give Praise Records in 2016.
