Austin, Texas-based Duel are hugely influenced by the darker sounds of early-'70s proto-metal. Featuring two alumni of Scorpion Child (Nuclear Blast), their sound is menacing and brutally old school. Total purists, they cut right to the bone with heavy, deep grooves and blistering tone. Tough and loud; hard rock as it should be. Cover artwork by Branca Studio. For fans of: Clutch, Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer, Kadavar, Scorpion Child.
