2 stars Well?I am not sure to have listened to much prog music while listening to this first "dREDG" EP. As far as I am concerned, it is very, very close to heavy metal (some might say "prog" metal).

I won't discuss about the production; but these short songs (except one) sound really coming out of some garage. But they were no garage band (in a garage land; for those of you who remember those famous lyric lines).

Actually, there are little differences between the songs. Furious beat, weak vocals, lack of writing skills and much, too much heavy metal stuff in here. Exclusively should I say? Since this genre is not quite my cup of tea, I can't really rate this work quite high. Two stars? Let's say that it is really the maximum rating in my books.

The only diversity (and not too much to tell the truth) is depicted during "Juggernaut". But gosh! These vocals (shouts would be a more adequate term) are quite unpleasant and are somewhat ruining the feel around this song.
