Austin, Texas’ incendiary occult rock/ stoner metal masters DUEL announce the arrival of their third full-length studio album.
‘Valley Of Shadows‘ is set to arrive May 17th from Heavy Psych Sounds Records and assures fans a true, one-of-a-kind rock and roll experience. With blazing guitars and deep grooves, at times reminiscent of the great Thin Lizzy, DUEL covers a lot of ground between psychedelic enhanced anthems and straightforward, full blast jamming.
Recorded by guitarist Jeff Henson at Red Nova Ranch studios outside of Austin, and mastered by Alberto de Icaza, ‘Valley Of Shadows‘ promises to be a rock-solid album from start to finish.
