ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
HeavensDust was formed in 2000 by Shin (Go.Vo) The goal was to create an individual sound that no other band can make.

In 2003 Ajo (wadaiko),in 2004 u-ky(koto),Yuta(Dr.) and Nan-Zan(shakuhachi) made the final pieces of the puzzle. By including koto (traditional Japanese harp),shakuhachi(traditional Japanese flute) and wadaiko (traditional Japanese drums) HeavensDust mixed traditional Japanese melody and rhythm with alternative metal and rock.

This is originally great!
This cd is perfect! It's sound new and really different. The beat is hard and the voice is great!

Devi

finally
Wow, I've been eager waiting for this album to come out.I've been a fan of their music since I first heard their last album, "Seven Sins". I didn't know some of these songs would actually turn out on this album.I saw vids of "Red So Deep" and "Silent Scream" and thought they were from their first album.

Valenti

Sweet!
"Higher Than Heaven..." is a great album. The vocals are great and the music itself is dark, but it has a sense of tranquillity as well.

I'd recommend this album to anyone.

Akito Tenkawa

Holy Shit
ok. i first heard Heavensdust on myspace. Then i bought Higher then Heaven, Louder than God. and i must say Holy shit. they are a kick ass band. i havne't stopped listening to the cd. i have on in my car constantly. It scares the old people here in Florida. but yes. This CD kicks some Major Ass. Buy it if you already havent. if you like Cradle. or Dir En. then you'll love Heavensdust. buy it trust me. Oh and Tnanks Shin.

Almost perfect
I bought this album purely on the strength of the information on cdbaby.com.

It's almost brilliant except the guitar work is very muddy. Hopefully they'll fix this by the time a new album comes out.

If they get the production right they could go HUGE

Vraiment fantastique !
Ce cd est vraiment fantastique, on y entend une melodie melant a l'idée que l'on peu se faire des maya et autre peuples similaires, mais la ou il y a une enorme nouveautée , c'est que cette partition magnifique est mélée d'un metal envoutant . Lors que l'on entend ces chansons , on se retrouve dans un autre espace , on est emporté , toute la puissance des sons nous envahi, c'est enorme !

Great music, bad recording!
Hevensdust has the most unique sound I have ever heard in my life. It could probly be the best music I owned if only the record quality was better. It sounds as if it were recorded in low quality mp3 format and burned to a disk. The flute sounds great at the begining of the song, then as soon as the gitars join in the over all loudness drops, and lots of static begins in the background; the treble also drops to the point that there is next to no reason to have tweeters. Overall the music has a great and unique sound, but the recording needs work.



This is my favorite album from these guys! I know a lot of people think their latest once (Without a Voice) is their best work, but in my opinion this is their best work. The guitars are more thrashy here and the vocals are all Shin!! The shakuhachi and koto are featured more in this album then their last one (Seven Sins) as well. The only issue I have with the koto in this ablum is that the tunings might be Western because it sounds more like a piano than a koto. Overall this album is terrific! In my opinion this is the direction the band should have explored more.

The album is awesome
I have not been able to put down this CD for over a week now! This album mixes every genre of rock possible, and blends it into this melodic sickness that can't be matched by anyone else, with the exception of Ill Nino and Linkin Park. I love the album, and I will buy HeavensDust's next one for sure!

Shin is a god!
This band has some of the most interesting and incredible sounding mixes I've ever heard for this genre of music. Of course, being half Japanese and loving the culture and traditional Japanese instruments in their songs helped me to love the music all the more. It's a great mixture of styles and songs, and I personally like every song on this CD.
