ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The band was formed by Shin in 2000 with the idea of taking the soul of Japanese traditional music and combining with a Western, modern sound.

Each member plays an integral part in the creation of their unique sound. In order to find the sound that they were ultimately looking for, many members came and went. Finally, with the addition of Kazha, they're finally settled on their current line up.

The mixture of Japanese and Western style that Shin had originally created is enhanced by the trying melody of Kazha and her beautiful voice. It's now closer to their idea of the perfect mixture of lightness/darkness & silence/sound.

Another great album from HeavensDust
Following on from the amazing 'Higher than Heaven, Louder than God', the awesome mix of traditional Japanese music and modern rock/metal is back.
Some great, heavy, early Korn-esque songs on here, like In Vain and Lost Gift. As well as some really beautiful soft songs that could reduce even the most hardened metaller to tears - check out Sound of a Tear Drop.
I just hope they earn enough off this great album to come and play over here in the UK.
BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!

Japanese and Western fusion like you've never heard before!
What do you get when you merge alternative, indie rock, metal, traditional Japanese instruments and inflences, and then add in one of the most incredible female vocalists you've heard in a long, long time???

Answer is: HEAVENSDUST !!!

I have been playing the new CD "Without a Voice" incessantly since it's release only a few weeks ago. Could not wait to get my hands on it since first discovering Kazha (Kazuha Oda) on myspace, and then realizing she had a whole othe side as musical director, songwriter, vocalist and collaborator with Shin (founder of the band in 2000) of HeavensDust. The CD and their music defies any simple characterization since it is raw, powerful, disonant, melodic, contemporary, and ancient all rolled into one. The main ingredients (and they vary from song to song) are raw power, intense energy, coarse emotion, gorgeous melodies and vocals, and spirituality all merged into one complex and grounbreaking collection of music on CD. There is fusion of traditional Japanese music, contemporary metal and hard rock, power pop (sort of) and the contrast and complementary mix of Shin's urgent vocals bordering on absolute growling at times and the incredible beauty of Kazha's remarkable vocals. The 2 artists play off of each other and provide a balance to what would seem to be complete contradiction.
Believe me...it works and is some of the most interesting and satisfying music I've heard in quite some time. Go to myspace and listen to the 4 songs from the CD posted there and I think you will be right back here to buy this CD immediately! This band is unlike anything you've heard before...thet are special! Hope you agree and enjoy this great music...

GREAT!!!
This band is great.
They have a very unique sound.
With killer vocales from both Shin and Kazha.

Wonderful album; wonderful service from CD Baby.
Heaven's Dust have found a nearly flawless way to combine traditional Asian sounds and istruments with modern metal. Their music is flowing and melodic. This is coming from a fan of classical, celtic, metal, punk, and industrial. I have a wide range of tastes and it's nice to finally find a very artistic melding of such sounds.
A great purchase - especially from a website with great service.

Amazing
This is without a doubt the best piece of Rock and Roll I have heard in years. I dissagree that there is too much emphasis on Kazha's vocals. In my personal opinion, and of course this is just a matter of taste, nothing more, I find her vocals to be the perfect addition to the band. It really solidifies the contrast of "lightness and darkness", "sound and silence" that Shin was aiming for.

That said, I don't want to see shin's vocals take a further backseat. He does a great job and it is the two of them together that really make it work. Take "Awaken", for example, near the end of the song with Shin's passionate vocals building to a climax and then Kazha glides over the top in her beautiful voice and picks up the melody. Simply amazing. This album is just amazing.

La musique japonaise est d'une richesse et d'une beauté telles que l'on se demande pourquoi elle ne suscite pas plus souvent des concepts semblables. HeavensDust crée une musique envoûtante par moments, plus commune à d'autres, les instruments, les harmonies japonaises n'y sont souvent présents que par petites touches. Les fusions les plus réussies pour moi sont "Between words and silence", "Away from God" et "Insanity". Une nette évolution par rapport aux albums précédents, en tous les cas. Je partage la préférence de certains pour la voix masculine, avec ses inflexions très japonaises; si la voix de Kazha est effectivement belle et pure, je la trouve parfois déplacée, elle renvoie la musique dans un registre édulcoré, commercial. Je regrette encore amèrement de n'entendre que de l'anglais. J'essaie d'imaginer ce que ce genre d'expérience donnerait en japonais... d'autant plus que la maîtrise de la voix est poussée - comme bien d'autres choses - jusqu'à des sommets de raffinement dans les arts japonais. Pourquoi cette maîtrise reste-t-elle désespérément absente de la musique moderne japonaise, ou quelque chose m'échappe-t-il? Bref je suis particulièrement impatient d'entendre les prochaines évolutions de HeavensDust.

By far the greatest album ever!!
I brought this CD after hearing only a few of the tracks on myspace, and i have to say it is so worth it!! I would recommend anyone to buy it, with its combination of rock and more relaxing music, you really cant go wrong!

DorisV

Greatest cd ever!!!
This is my new favorite cd! I can't seem to take it out of the player! I took it on a roadtrip and it was on the whole time. The music really touches a chord inside of me. It's like each song was written from the heart. If you don't have it you should buy it. And buy one for your friends too! I bought on for my husband, cause I don't wanna share mine.
