Tvsk are a stoner metal two piece based out of Alameda, CA, composed of Justin Dimig (Bass/Vocals) and Nick Baumgartner (Drums/Vocals). The brainchild of Justin and Nick, Tvsk was conceived in January of 2014. Nick and Justin bonded over their love of High on Fire, Sleep, Neurosis, OM, Melvins, and all other things that are metal and heavy, and decided to start writing their own music as a bass and drum duo.
Tvsk initiated in January 2014 with Dimig and Baumgartner as founding members, initially with other members but eventually settling as a duo. By early January the band would record The Witchester Sessions and release them on 5 January 2015 with their earliest known shows in the summer of 2015. From there the band would release two more demos and From The Ashes the same year.
From there the band is still actively playing shows in the California area and have since released a live album in 2016 and a new studio release in the form of Learn To Die in early 2017.

"Nice stuff, love the vocals, sounds like Ian Curtis meeting Om."
"At first I thought this must be Ken Baluke on vocals. Excellent E.P. full of heavy riffs laced with doomy psych..."
