DuneGazer debut album ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw" is modern grunge

Grunge is a musical style that deserves to live forever, and I'm glad that the debut album from Germany's DUNEGAZER has arrived to carry on the grunge torch. ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw" is 40 minutes of the rawest, roughest, edgiest kind of grunge that always keeps it fresh and original. With extended instrumental sections but also with unique vocals (a requirement of grunge), DuneGazer delivers the grungy goods. Have a listen to ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw":

As much as I like the vocals, I especially dig the long instrumental sections. "Droughnought" is a good example of that. DuneGazer is taking the best of the original grunge sound of the late 80s and early 90s, but giving it a fresh sound with these long parts which give the trio a chance to show off their mastery of the sound.

FFO: Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Nirvana with a modern sound with extended instrumentals.

DuneGazer is:
× Paco
× Ruben
× Jascha
From the band:
Dune Gazer is a 3-piece rock band from Oldenburg. Basically, the three musicians came together from much tougher genres, but together they discovered their passion for the crazy sound of the 70s and combined it with other subtle influences from stoner rock and shoegaze to form their own variant, between brutal, in fuzz soaked, sound walls and weightless, melodic clean parts changes.
