Dystopia is a crust-punk / sludge metal band from Orange County in California, formed in 1991.

Dystopia's music has many elements of sludge, doom, punk, and death metal, and they are a well-known part of the crust-punk scene. They also commonly use sound samples, especially movie quotes. Dystopia has a lot of bleak imagery in their lyrics, as well as politically-fueled anger, human emotions (most notably hatred and despair), social issues, and general misanthropy. They originally had Dan Kaufman of Mindrot on lead vocals, but that duty was taken over by drummer Dino Sommese after Kaufman left the band in 1993.

Dystopia disbanded in 2008, following the release of their self-titled album

A sludge metal gem!When I listened to the debut album of Dystopia for first time I said "This is an album that I must find and buy it".I'm very happy that I managed to learn this band.I enjoyed this album.I wait to release their second album.This album has the rage of punk,very heavy guitars and noise(a little bit,that's why is a sludge album).But also has some blastbeats and death metal vocals.It's an anti-american album.Other lyrical themes are misanthropy and drugs.Dino Sommese's screams are amazing(reminds me a little bit the screams of Stephen O' Malley(but less extreme))!It's a typical sludge metal album but I believe that this one is unique.

My favorite tracks are:Now and forever(great beginning),Control-alt-delete,Illusion of love(Carcinogen)(my most favorite,a fantastic sludge-death metal track)and Number one hypocrite(rage)

I recommend it to all metallers.A must-listen album!

My grade:7,8/10

A magnificently dense, filthy, crusty pile of sludge, the mood of Human = Garbage is well set when it starts off with a pained rant about the evils of the world overtop of a slow slinky bass line and phased guitars. The lyrics are extremely powerful and depressing, and are nearly all about suicide, politics, death, drug abuse, and many other social issues facing the world today. The music is all heavy, dirty, and doomy. Pain and hatred are practically dripping off the vocals, Dino Sommese's voice being raw and hoarse. A very emotional and fierce listen that may not be for everyone
