Austin rock’n’rollers DUEL stream « Live At The Electric Church » in full on The Obelisk; out this Friday on Heavy Psych Sounds!
You can almost smell the weed, the blood, and the sweat as DUEL « Live At The Electric Church » takes you on a tripped out journey to an old abandoned Spanish church turned DIY rock venue in East Austin, Texas USA. The front door is locked…. The entrance is around the backside of the old building where rowdy metalheads and stoners huddle around a small bonfire made mostly of trash. Through the walls you can hear the thumping of a full on beer soaked high energy rock show. Swirling psychedelic tones breaking into blistering riffs, and the relentless chugging and smashing as DUEL deals one sonically punishing blow after another. You can feel the intoxicated energy of the crowd, and the band’s unpolished swagger as they pay no mind to the microphones set up all around them recording the show. Brought to life by Crow studios mobile recording truck straight out of 1970’s. Hear these tunes like they were meant to be heard LIVE and RAW!
« Everything works. Band, songs, performance. If you’ve got experience with Duel‘s prior work or you want a 32-minute sampler of what they can do, Live at the Electric Church serves to inform and thrill in kind. » comments The Obelisk’s JJ Koczan.
« Live At The Electric Church » comes out May 18th on Limited Green vinyl, Yellow vinyl, CD and digital.
Out May 18th on Heavy Psych Sounds – Order now
This Old Crow
Heart of the Sun
Fears of the Dead
Hailing from the sun-baked lands of Austin, TX, DUEL is a heavy metal four-piece who casts hard-rocking spells of doom, blistering licks and horror from behind a thick haze of smoke. Formed by two ex-members of Scorpion Child and hugely influenced by the darkness of late 60’s and early 70’s metal, these purists cut it right to the bone with heavy, deep grooves and blistering tunes. After a well-acclaimed debut « Fears Of The Dead » (February 2016) on Heavy Psych Sounds, DUEL returned with an even more raging full-length, cheekily entitled « Witchbanger » (April 2017).
