There is absolutely no evidence that this was More Than Dust's second gig with their current line-up and only their third or so since, well, ever. This was a fierce example of how metal is done properly (delivering on their myspace promise). The shabby, and terribly structured room I might add, at Bar Monsta in Camden was dripping with succulent metallic riffs and gargantuan fist-fulls of drumming power. The crowd was bowled over by vocalist Josh's new-found enthusiasm and intense presence as he towered over anyone's face near enough get into, yet he was right there in the middle of 'em having a good headbang. The set seemed to go on a while, which was in this case a great thing, allowing them time to really blow what was left of your hearing in such an enjoyable and prolonged way. It's a sad, sad thing that it was bassist Tom's (the beardy vegan) last performance with MTD but with this gig tucked securely under their belts they're sure to carry on and offer more metal savouries. - Thrivezine

Bio

More than Dust are a metal band - it's as simple as that. With influences ranging from the old school riffs of Sepultura and Machine Head to the angrier, faster Killswitch and Hatebreed, MTD know what makes good, straight-down-the-line metal, but they also rail agains social injustice, corruption and apathy through their brutal, riff-driven, groove-laden.

Lead singer Josh thrills and terrifies audiences with his imposing stage presence. His high octane energy combined with solid support from a very tight band guarantees an awesome performance every time. Thrivezine reviewer Vickie Simmons called it "a fierce example of how metal is done properly".

Formed by Brighton-born guitarist Alex in 2004, and with bassist Liddy and drummer Rafael now part of the permanent lineup, MTD have graced stages alongside big name bands Romeo Must Die, Interlock and Silent Descent. For their 1st show, they opened London's hardcore and metal festival, Destruction Fest, in 2006 and are being welcomed back in October this year. MTD recorded their demo EP early this year and are taking their no holds barred show on tour in the US this summer.

Until that day.....

More Than Dust - because the world still needs proper metal.
