FUCK - Where did this EP come from. As Progenitor is a stunning debut release. 30 mins of finely tuned Prog Sludge, Doom, Space Rock and Stoner Metal. Imagine Mastodon, High On Fire and Baroness jamming together and doing a soundtrack to a fucked up Sci-fi Film. Well this is what you get with Dune. These highly talented Scottish Sludge Metallers have released a brilliant debut album with Progenitor.

It has more thrills, spills and excitement that a Hollywood Blockbuster can only dream about. The riffs are simply sublime through out. Dune are loud from the word go and they have a manic fast-paced energy that is sadly missing in some of our favourite current Sludge/Stoner Metal bands.

Progenitor impressed the hell out of me from the very first listen. Look at the excellent album cover to get the full effect of the album. As it will put you in a trance from the very first riff. I loved every second of Progenitor. I can't decide on a favourite song as they are all equally good as each other.

I would have to say it's the vocals that makes this album such a brilliant ride. As Dune have 3 outstanding vocalists each doing their own crazy insane thing. You will understand me once you have listened to the album.

Dune have the potential to one of the next big things in the UK Sludge/Stoner Metal scene as I cannot see any other band doing this sort of music. Maybe Gringo are the nearest thing but Dune have something special about them.

It's a shame Progenitor is only one for 30 mins as I wanted to hear more. It's a breathtaking debut release that Dune should rightly be proud of. Lets hope their debut full length isn't to far behind as I predict very big things for Dune in the next couple of years.
