For Fans Of: Opeth / Isis / Tool
DVNE is a 5-piece progressive rock/metal band from Edinburgh, Scotland. Founded in 2013, the band was then called Dune in reference to Frank Herbert’s masterpiece of the same name; a statement of the band’s mutual obsession for Sci-fi and fantasy of all forms, the inspiration of which has continued to influence their music to this day.
With highly dynamic compositions venturing from delicate and intricate melodies to crushing and brutal soundscapes, Dvne’s music takes its listeners through a deeply emotional journey filled with dystopian thematics, grand narrative, and other-worldly landscapes.
Since Asheran’s release, Dvne has toured all over the UK, Europe and North America and appeared at prestigious festivals such as Psycho Las Vegas, Desertfest London and Inferno Festival Norway to name a few.
Dvne will be releasing their sophomore album Etemen Ænka via Metal Blade Record on March 19th and have just released a first single for it, SI-XIV along- side its music video.

The Obelisk – http://theobelisk.net/obelisk/2018/08/18/live-review-psycho-las-vegas-friday “For DVNE‘s first appearance on a US stage — and sizable US stage at that, in The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino — they hit it like absolute professionals. Crisp in their sound, intense in delivery, every bit in command of the room, from “go” onward. Killed. Just nailed it.”

Metal Hammer – http://teamrock.com/review/2017-07-18/dvne-asheran-album-review “Dvne unveil their debut album and it’s every bit as epic as anyone could have hoped for. [With] boundary-pushing songs that reward with repeated listens, it sees the quartet at the peak of their powers.”

“From the lithe, undulating riffs and scintillating melodies of opener “The Crimson Path” to the multi-layered, dreamlike tapestry of sound and sensation that closes “Scion”, DVNE take you on a phenomenal journey through a sublime sonic landscape and majestic melodies” -10/10
