"All is Dust and I am Nothing" is the first full length LP from Pittsburgh's Slaves BC. The release marks the culmination of three years of writing and recording that tracks the band's musical evolution from 2012 to 2015. The album is a concept album that is based upon a subject matter that is as bleak as the music, the book of Ecclesiastes. "All is Dust and I Am Nothing" chronicles an exploration into the meaning of life as the band drew upon their many influences to discover new sounds.
The new LP will be available on limited vinyl from Veritas Vinyl. The pre-order will be on veritasvinyl.net
and will go live February 1st, 2016. The album will be released via bandcamp digitally and vinyl pre-orders will begin shipping on February 16th, 2016.

"All is Dust and I am Nothing is an impressive warning shot fired into a crowd of lazy genre-mashers; Slaves BC show that they are deadly serious about their craft and their career, and you'd do well not to get in their way."
-- Kim Kelly @ Noisey
"It discusses the meaning of life, the inevitable death of everything, and that all actions of man are done in futility. Slaves BC take that absolutely savage story and manipulate it into an album equally as savage and sincerely crushing."
-- Nick @ CVLT NATION
"Prepare thy selves. Lace up your Doc Martin's, put an eternal scowl on your face, load up on painkillers and hide that sweatpants boner because it all boils down to one word: KILLER."
-- Matt Hinch @ Metal Bandcamp
"All Is Dust And I Am Nothing is my favorite album in this style that I have heard in years."
-- Matt Jamison beardedgentlemenmusic.com/2016/02/16/slaves-bc-all-is-dust-and-i-am-nothing/
"Humanity is garbage and everything is meaningless, but Slaves BC have recorded the perfect album to tide you over until the world collapses in on itself."
-- Nathan Sizemore @ xtapolapometal
"Between its sound and its subject matter, this album is quite the soul-crushing experience, an experience I cannot recommend highly enough."
-- Eric Yanyo @ Valley of Steel
"Mosh riffs, blasts, its like a farm kid getting sucked into a combine: a horrifying onslaught of blood and guts spraying all over the place, and machinery grinding on bones"
