...As DMT, we are creating music using Universal energy, frequency, and vibration to make the unconscious conscious and "Activate" the spirit within!


DMT is an American heavy metal band from Los Angeles, California. Formed in 2009, the group was founded by bassist and vocalist Alistar Valadez and his brother David Valadez on lead guitar. After a few lineup changes early in development, DMT found their equals with the addition of Chris Anguiano on lead vocals, Derek Hartsook on drums, and Jason Engols also playing lead guitar.

DMT is known to be a powerful supporting act to Nationals, and is regularly called upon to fill that role. Opening for such acts as Korn, Fear Factory, In This Moment, and Killswitch Engage, DMT can always be counted on to set the pace for a great concert.



DMT's concept is unique and reflected in their artwork and merchandise. Working with various renowned and visionary artists from around the world, DMT is creating a full spectrum of designs not typical to artists in their genre. 

DMT released their debut EP "A Shift of Ages" in December of 2011, following the premier of their CGI video "Beneath the Surface". Due to the immediate success of their first video, Director Lord Zane collaborated with DMT on their next two videos "American Evolution" and "We Bring The Change", capturing the intensity of their live performance...


DMT is currently in the recording studio finishing the new EP due to be released in Winter 2016!
