Hailing from small-town Grand Forks BC and following lengthly stints in previous bands, four driven local musicians united in January 2010 to form the band they always wanted to be in; Slagduster creates bone-crushing yet intricately detailed, thought-provoking music. Mixing technical riffs, heavy grooves, off time rhythms, epic build-ups and unique interludes, an emphasis is always kept on the melody, fluid song structure and raw feeling, while maintaining a brutal metal sound. Slagduster is not easily labeled in today`s music scene. No sissy vocals or cliché trendy mainstream non-sense. Period.
But, Slagduster has been compared to the likes of Gojira, Born Of Osiris, Strapping Young Lad, and Sikth.
Slagduster has played live with Unleash the Archers, Reaver, Illusive Mind Gypsy Crew, Datura, Chaos Logic, Invasives, Between Seas, Tyrannicide, Banished Rhythm Funeral, and Rapid Loss.
