"A recommendation"

“We can finish up be recommending in the strongest possible terms DYST, young, raw and awesome, something for anyone into hardcore.” – Fjellparken Festival website - Fjellparkfestivalen (Mountainpark Festival Norway)


Vocalist Joakim Vindenes is racing away like some angry mole-town cocktail demonstrator at speed, which here is a huge plus" - Furore i Harare


"A show that would have had the guys in Converge smiling å smile from the back of the room" - Fjellparkfestivalen (Mountainpark Festival Norway)

"By:Larm Program Managers word"

Dyst appeared out of nowhere. We received a lot of hardcore / punk and had to choose the best. Dyst was really a band I fought for the jury, Haugland said"

Do You Miss Any Bricks 2010
Black Waves 2011
Debut album coming 2012



Starting up in 2009 as four sixteen-year old boys, and one older - Dyst went all-in from the start. Already in February 2010 they released their first 7-inch called “Do You Miss Any Bricks?” and toured Norway alongside a hardcore band from the Netherlands that was twice their age.

This was followed by a bunch of summer festivals including 5071, where Dyst played alongside the likes of Datarock, Audrey Horne etc.
After winning a demo-competition on leading Norwegian radiostation P3, Dyst yet again played support again for Datarock on their tour.

The boys won several live-competitions and demo-competitions through the autumn of 2010, and used the money to yet again release a 7-inch with their new crew. After the lead-guitarist and bassist were replaced after the summer, the new Dyst took a new path mixing the punk with metalcore. Influences are Norma Jean, Oh Sleeper, but yet Dyst have an energic twist that makes it Dyst.

In addition to winning these competitions, the band was announced to play at by:Larm 2011.
The same month Dyst signed with Brilliance Records (Tóg, Simon Says No!, Benea Reach, Social Suicide)

They released their new 7-inch “Black Waves” on Brilliance right before they played three gigs at by:Larm – and continued to tour around 10 cities in Norway. Dyst got a great reputation and presented themselves in an interview in the first edition of Metal Hammer Norway in may.

Dyst’s debut at by:Larm was well received and it yet again lead to an active summer. Dyst was invited to play at the Freakstock Festival in Germany, and played at Norwegians largest festival; Øyafestivalen (artists: Kanye West, Kvelertak, Comeback Kid, Bring Me The Horizon and Cancer Bats)

Now the band is working on their debut-album which is set to 2012. Although the band is in a writing process, they can not manage to stay off the stage.
The band won Øyafestivalens “Zoom”- a live competition for the representative bands of the new wave in Bergen in October 2011.

The jury said that Dyst has a tremendous presence and an infectious energy. They are young, but ambitious and is a fresh band that gives everything on stage and infects the audience with their passion. Dyst shows a brave spontanity, and have a great style that they perform with confidence.

Dyst is recording their debut album in early 2012, in Oslo with Tommy Akerholds studio (Turboneger, Silver, Serena Maneesh).
