Turned to Dust is the debut EP for Challenger, a young band from the growing metal hotbed of Slovenia. Early Iron Maiden is the bar by which this band should be measured with, with vocals that are reminiscent of Paul Di'Anno (and I mean that in a positive way as I really like the first two Maiden albums) and music that has a traditional metal foundation but flirts with the epic songwriting you started to hear when Dickinson joined and began contributing songs like "Revelations" and "Powerslave." They sound like they are between writing music that is like the stuff that inspired them to pick up instruments in the first place and developing their own style. Turned to Dust is energetic but a bit derivative though I hear enough promise to want to hear what Challenger come up with next.
