Art of Dying have been able to create muscular, vivacious hard-rock bursting with lung-shattering choruses and a sincerity that is impossible to fake. Equally at home with a lead-fingered riff or a deft slow-burner, there is an ease of breadth in AOD's repertoire. 'I was blown away when I first heard their independent record', enthuses Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan. 'I lived with it for quite a while and I was so impressed with the quality of the songwriting that I had a feeling there was something special going on. David (Disturbed vocalist) and I had been looking for someone to sign to our imprint for a while, but I wanted to make sure the guys could do it live - it's hard to find a band that are the complete package these days.'
