Texas occult rockers DUEL conjure up another heavy dose of tripped out old school doom metal with their third full length Valley of Shadows. More blood splattered tales of black magic, sex, ancient curses and devils on the streets. Eight epic and infectious rippers showing a wider range of the bands song writing abilities from psychedelic heavy metal anthems to Thin Lizzy esque dueling guitars to full blast Motorhead shredding. Their deepest cuts yet recorded over a period of winter months by DUEL guitarist Jeff Henson at the infamous Red Nova Ranch studio. Located in the desert wastelands of Texas just outside of Austin, TX. You can feel the all night smoked out, mushroom fueled sessions with each tune. What could be the bands best collaboration to date, a rock solid album from start to finish.
