Dryasdust – Demo


Dryasdust – Demo
Self released – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Seventies
Rated: ****

With all those great Swedish releases last month paying homage to the sixties and seventies like Mamont and Graveyard. It is only fitting to see the Fins put in their two dollars as well. And after only a few seconds of the five-song demo by Dryasdust you know those dollars are made of pure gold. They use their power trio dynamic in the best way possible using the mellow moments to make the heavier sounds explode out of your speakers. Their riffs are dark and dangerous on some moments and trampling like a buffalo on a prairie on others which are offset by almost weightless blues and a steadfast bass that knows when to give air and when to clean up the rubble. The same goes for the drums that plasters its fills all over the place and refuses to hit even one skin too much doing so and even less on the moments when the vocalist needs the serene air to wrap around its haunting voice. Aah yes, this is how it’s all meant to be. It’s all happening man. It’s all happening!
