Dust for Life- For life

"When I heard Step into the Light on KUPD, Phoenix, I had to hear the whole album. At first I was hesitant at buying it because I don't usually buy albums for one song, but this purchase was well worth it. Dust for life reminds a lot of early Alice and Chains, so if you are a fan of Alice and Chains then I would suggest you buy it you will not be dissapointed. The blend of grungy, crunchy guitars with obnocious vocals is anough to make your ears bleed. So rock on and never roll over baby! Dust for Life is the real deal."

"Dust For Life's first CD is a great find to the true music lover. Some of the great songs off the Cd are : Step into the Light, Seed, and Bitten. If you are interested in hearing more from them go to their website for the chance to download the latest album "Degrees Of Black" and they have some new demos of some unreleased songs. Awesome band, you won't be disappointed..."
Rock that doesn't suck!

"It's been years since a band hit me where Dust For Life hits me. The people comparing DFL to Alice in Chains are thinking way too short-term, but I'll go along with them and say "like AiC only better." What this band has done is taken the best of 70s and 80s hard rock with melodic sensibilities, leaving behind all the corporate trappings that got in the way back then, and distilled some fantastic blues-influenced hard rock onto their debut CD.What stinks most about modern hard rock is that it's mostly music for frat boys. If anyone thinks Limp Bizkit is a chick magnet, they're sadly mistaken. But a band doesn't have to be pretty or wussy to catch my ear -- and make my heart go pitter-pat. DFL are not pretty. And I bet they could kick your [butt]. But they are from Memphis, and they understand the power of dynamic changes in a song... that the loud stuff is just loud stuff unless there's something to contrast it against. It's sorta' like the difference between a sunny day in Arizona and a sunny day in Eugene, Oregon, if you get my meaning...Chris Gavin's fantastic vocal style ranges from gut-wrenched hollering to soaring to the auditory equivalent of caressing naked skin. Jason Hughes is no slave to the gratuitous guitar solos that finally turned me off to glam rock back in 1990, but when he wails on that thing he makes it COUNT. He and the solid blues-savvy rhythm section take what might be boring done by a lesser band and demand your attention. David Rhea and Rick Shelton are visceral; they'll get inside you and change your metabolism to match the beat of the song. Yes, I had an almost PHYSICAL reaction to this stuff, but I can't describe it here in this family forum... "like a liquid angel," indeed...HEY LOOK! the lyrics are about something besides, "Oh! Angst! I hate my life!" Ya' gotta' love it. Best songs on the album: "Step into the Light," "Lifelike," "Seed," and "The End." Every song, though, has its moments. Yummy grubby guitar, rhythms like a dragon's heartbeat, and oh did I mention the vocals? To call this band "grunge" is an insult to their abilities. The main test: I bought 4 other CDs this week, and all the others are sitting on the desk while DFL has taken up permanent residence in my computer's CD tray. My copy of iTunes has a library of more than 3500 mp3s, but I'm ignoring them in favor of this new band I just discovered...Looking forward to great things in the future from DFL. Along with a scant few bands these days, they are turning my ear once again to hard rock. Now, if I could only get them on a tour with Union Underground, System of a Down, Fear Factory, Incubus, Tool, and Sevendust, I'd be a happy camper! We'll call it the ROCK THAT DOESN'T SUCK festival. I can see the teeshirts now!Ah well, a girl can dream. In the meantime, I'm gonna' wear out this Dust For Life CD and keep my eyes open for the next one."
