Born in late 2014-early 2015, Dustrider are an instrumental heavypsych/stoner trio from Roma formed by drummer Francesco “Krundaal” Romano (Riti Occulti and Jarman), bassist Andrea “Keoma” Romano and Bruno “Brüno” Bellisario on guitars. Since their beginning, they try to mix all very different influences, spanning from classic heavy metal to stoner, doom and sludge, in a personal and new interpretation. Their sound can be described as a mixture of psychedelic/space rock fused with heavy stoner tunes with an adventurous spirit running throughout their music. Although in a very short time, the band acquired their own personal vision of music, creating a personal style fused in a heavy doom, desert rock and fuzzy riffs in one spaced out trippy package. In late 2015, Dustrider release their first EP, Mother Engine, entirely self-produced, which caught the attention and curiosity of part of the insiders. Months after the release of Mother Engine, Dustrider have come out with a new self-produced single, AgarthA, which opens the way to the first album of the band.
UPDATE: Dustrider welcome their new bass player, Niccolò Tricarico (ex Riti Occulti), who officially joins the line up replacing Andrea Romano, who leaves the band for personal reasons. With Niccolò, the sound of the band moves towards more doom and sludge sonority, seasoned with an even more psychedelic vein than before. The band is already working on the new album that will see the light in 2018, where the sound of OM, Bongripper, Sleep and Tangerine Dream will merge together.
