Formerly known as: Nergal, Dust started in 1996 when Joakim Jonsson (drums/synthesizer/bass/vocals) and Henrik Wenngren (vocals/guitar/bass/synthesizer) got the idea to start a side-project behind their main band Mornaland. In 1996 Dust released their first demo under the name of Nerghal. This release was not an official release but it got a good response.
In late 1996 Dust recorded their first official demo, A Wander Through the Dark Realm, released by Mester Productions'.
After a break, in 1999 Dust recorded a new unreleased demo called The Third Convention and a 7 EP through Mester Productions' titled The Endless Fall. A full release is yet planned.
