Thrash Metal Band in Los Angeles California

Our Dying World was conceived in 2018 by renowned metal musician Tom Tierney.

After a series of major life challenges, the story of Tierney’s evolution has become the first chapter of Our Dying World.

The first EP entitled Exhibition is the story of loss, drawn through time, to finding an inner peace and an acceptance of life’s immense struggles.

The concept of ODW’s first record can be summed up simply: ‘Find the strength inside you to carry on’ -Even when it feels like there’s nothing left to give.

Our Dying World is evolving fast. There’s a lot of work for us to do, but if it was easy that would defeat the purpose of the record and concept itself.

Our record, our message, and our journey is for you. We do this in the hope that our fans embrace our music as much as we embrace any one of you that are struggling to pierce through the challenges and speedbumps of this mortal coil.

So stay tuned. Exclusives, singles, and behind the scenes videos are on their way. We invite you to find us on social media and walk this path with us. Together we will prevail.

Much love,


Our Dying World


Thrash Metal


Our Dying World was born from the ashes of a dark period in guitarist Tom Tierney’s life. Having passed through many bands with little to no success, he decided to take matters into his own hands. The first EP, Expedition, is the mind at work in creation of all parts; drums, bass, guitars, and vocals.

Tom figured that if he could get past what other bands had failed to do, the music would speak for itself…and spoken it has. Experience the debut EP from ODW, Expedition on your favorite streaming service.
