“Ash To Dust” is a local Tucson thrash band that was formed in July 2007 by Robb Matthews. Through the years, there have been numerous changes to the band, such as new members, new names, and the location of the band. Ash To Dust has been on hold for 3 ½ years while the members tended to their family and other life events. The passing of their guitar player, Paul Von Bargen was a devastating blow and almost the end of Ash To Dust.
Their first self-titled CD release was released November 2007; a nine-song demo EP. Songs included a Black Sabbath cover, “Children of the Grave” as well as Sepultura's, “Territory.” Their first three shows were a “Battle of the Bands” in which they placed 2nd and lost by 7 votes to Animus Divine, also a local Tucson band. With those three shows, the floodgates opened and Ash To Dust was given the opportunities to open for: Testament, Sacred Reich, Flotsam and Jetsam, Exodus, Sevenwitches, Obituary, Goatwhore, Warbringer, Heathen, Kittie, Evile, Bonded By Blood, Forbidden, Death Angel, Sepultura. Since May 2011, Robb has been writing for the next album and reforming Ash To Dust.
