Music: “Hell Betty”
Artist Location: Athens, Ohio
Info: “Four friends from Athens, Ohio, who threatened to start a stoner rock band together each time they met at local bars, finally came together to form DUNE in 2011. Influenced by their favorite acts (Sabbath, Kyuss, QOTSA, Sword, Truckfighters), DUNE’s brand of stoner metal has various undertones — everything from soul to thrash.”
FDJ, a fan, wrote, “Nice desert/stoner grooves. Not as heavy as some, but they more than make up for this with warm fuzzy guitar tones and an upbeat grooviness. Favorite track: ‘Aries.’”
Recorded by Neil Tuuri and Seth Bostick at Amish Electric Chair studios in Athens, Ohio. Album artwork by Gary Blowers.
“Thanks to all of our fans for sticking with us over the years.”
Price: $1 (USD) for track; $3 (USD) for four-track album
