Album Notes
HeavensDust was formed in 2000 by Shin (Vo.Gt.). 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.

Over 92% ra ra! These guys could be the next big thing...
The most explosive part of this group has got to be their website. If you have not seen it yet, it is a must visit.

Musically, these guys can take over the freaking world. Seriously, this album is crazy! I've never heard a blend of music like this. Trad Japanese and metal.

My only not 100% ra ra comment is their sound is almost there... I mean they are so close to having the coolest thing I've ever heard. Just a little bit further and they'll nail it! Maybe the next album... but this album does in fact kick a great deal of butt.

Check these guys out. I highly recommend them.


Unique sound
I played this cd over and over. I love the two totally different renditions of Before I Die. They definitely have the most unique sound I have heard yet and I dig it.

CD Baby

It's not every day that you hear hard rock and metal mixed with traditional Japanese music and instruments. In fact, it's never- which is why this album not only caught our attention, but just about blew out the speakers with its creativity, innovation and power. Mixing wadaiko (traditional Japanese drums), with shakuhachi and koto along with dark, brooding vocals and classic, edgy, hard-edged guitars, HeavensDust is paving the way in the genre with a mindset that says, "why not?!". A stunning world-fusion approach to numetal and today's grind rock.


Unique and i like it.
I felt my breathe leave my body when I listened to the sounds of Japan and my always loved rock put together into a dream-like blend of sympathetic and heartfelt lyrics from a comforting voice at the end of the speaker. Unique and I like it.

Where Have I Been?!
This 5 track cd is just a SAMPLING of what Shin and his band have to offer. Pure excellence! I bought this cd and "Higher than Heaven, Louder than God" at the same time. Neither of them have left my cd players much. Everyone that sits in my car I make them listen to Before I Die. So far, everyone digs it. YOU GUYS NEED TO COME TO AMERICA!!!!!!


Want more
I will buy more of this group I found them very talented. My age would surprise most at the type of music I listen to, I've been a round a long time and the sounds of today are killer. And this group is right on top of my list.Before I die is an killer song. The album is well excepted in my library.


I really like the unique sound. Very original.
This band's music is very original. I like Song No.1 the best (Before I Die). It leaves you feeling haunted and lifless. It sounds like a bad thing, but it's just what some of us need.


Love it!!
This is a collection of songs from "Higher Than Heaven, Louder Than God" with some slightly different versions of a couple of them. The "Before I Die (Tears Version)" is really nice with Kazha on vocals. Another must-have for fans of HeavensDust!! Now my collection of HeavensDust music is complete!!


Best of luck to ya
You guys have to be the most original alt. metal i've heard so far, its great! Cant wait to hear what u come out with next!
