New York band ov Dust have posted their version of the Celtic Frost classic Dethroned Emperor for free download and streaming at the band’s website www.ovdust.com.
The song is also the closing track of the bands first full length release Resurrection of an American Heretic.
“Celtic Frost has had a very profound influence on us as musicians and in our music and Dethroned Emperor was one of the very first songs we played as a band. In recording our version of the song it was important for us to maintain the original feel and intent of the song, while adding our own style and conviction to it. Including it on the album is our way of paying homage to, and acknowledging the significance of, Celtic Frost on our song writing”.
Formed in early 2008, ov Dust mixes elements of black metal with old school thrash in creating a distinctive brand of extreme metal. ‘Resurrection of an American Heretic’ is the bands first full length album and was released thru the bands own label American Black Metal.
The album is available for purchase online at www.ovdust.com as well as digitally on iTunes.
