As debut records go, it really doesn’t get much better than Mountain Dust’s “Nine Years”. These Canadian rockers have not only hit the nail on the head, they’ve driven it deep into the fucking ground. In a sea of bands emulating the sounds of days gone by, it is a struggle to wade against the tide and produce something with its own character – “Nine Year” stands as a testament to the fact that this is possible.
At its heart, “Nine Years” is a blues record, but what Mountain Dust do is bring that sound into the present, with a heavier approach; a heaviness that border-lines on metal at times.
We could talk all day about this record, but words and just words – “Nine Years” is a record that deserves your time. Pour yourself a strong drink, sit down and let the music speak for itself – you won’t regret it.

The press wrote.
For a debut album, Mountain Dust wrote something very accomplished and mature. I now feel bad for missing the album release gig since this is surely one of the best rock records of 2016. It’s genuine but still inventive, it’s old school but contemporary and it’s hard to ignore. Popular retro rock bands should open for Mountain Dust.
