Hoe Ver is Dunn? Translates as, How far is Dunn? Which is an amazing but not easy to come by Dutch book by author Jaap Verduyn. It tells a weird tale about a soldier named Darryl Shields escaping through time and space during the battle of Verdun. And I wonder how big that small chance actually is that he met Admiral Masuka somewhere along his journey. Even though the Admiral was the sole survivor of a nuclear holocaust and only then left this astral plane to search for salvation and God. It must be so; for time and space always harmonizes. Like it does on Verdun’s 2012 release The Cosmic Escape of Admiral Masuka. The French fivesome deliver a harmonic doom EP filled with war torn riffs marching to the steadfast beat of scorched banging. And with their incendiary vocals they spellbind the listener to their steady rhythm and drag you along on their pilgrimage through the universe. With supernatural guitar tunnels in a rainbow of color the songs enchant and entrance. Absolutely majestic and magical!
