"Impressively jagged"

Ov Dust -Disturbance in the Goat Herd

Despite the silly band name, sillier title and silliest title
font, this doesn’t
suck. It’s impressively jagged, somewhere between first
and second wave black metal. The riffs are a bit “stock,”
to quote Lars yet again, but the vocals would scare even John Tardy. - Decibel Magazine

In early 2008, founding members Raath,/Riott/Damage drew from their extensive
experience working together in various musical incarnations to coalesce their
vision into a new music project, Ov DusT, on an atavistic journey to their roots.

"After many years pointed in different directions within the context
of assorted projects, we've finally been able to step back and focus
our collective attention on the music that has been at the heart of
our passions. Ov DusT is the closest representation of the music that
drove us into the uncharted waters of creating music and our vision of
where it needs to go that any of us has ever done.”

Over the course of the next ten months the trio worked to build their definition
of the band with all three members contributing to the writing and vision. During
this time they recorded a three song introduction to the band titled Disturbance
In The Goat Herd, began growing their online fan base, and scoring several press
items in such publications as Metroland and Decibel magazine. Finally near the end
of 2008, the band decided it was time to call upon two old friends, Rage and Crash,
to round out the line up on vox and base, respectively, and began performing live
to highly receptive audiences.

With a very diverse musical pedigree stemming directly from avant-garde progressive
rock band Sunset Aside, as well as independent international touring artists
The Erotics and The Clay People along with such notable upstate New York stalwarts
as 1000 Young, PLAID, Severe, and Kritios Boy, Ov DusT signifies a return to the
dormant metal roots of the forming members. Combining a long standing lineage of
thrash/black metal bands such a Celtic Frost, Darkthrone, and Bathory with American
hardcore/extreme bands like D.R.I., C.O.C., and Cryptic Slaughter, Ov DusT's musical
direction is one of driving, organic metal focusing on Style/Shadow/Symbol conveying
the undercurrents of the aggregate personality within the band.

”Musically and philosophically, Ov Dust (Raath-gtrs/vox, Riott-drums,
Damage-gtrs/vox, Rage-Vox, Crash-bass) represents our collective
experiences as spiritually inclined and logically discerning human
beings. However, we were not always as such and can invariably abandon
any hope to remain as we are now in this present sense as we are subject
to the stability of Change and the inevitable Mercies and Severities
demonstrative of artistic progress.

Sound confusing?
We're quite comfortable, in Truth...

We know who and what we are.
We know what we are doing.
