Doom sludge metal band Dirge release full length [India]
“Building up to their debut release with over 51 minutes of carefully crafted tunes,the 6 tracks on ‘Ah Puch’ are cathartic & pulverizingly heavy, shifting from rapid tremolo picked sections, tribal drumming patterns to dark, looming riffs delivered with the deliberation of classic death-doom. Supplemented by emotive, melancholic lead guitar playing & pained vocal screams akin to the feeling of despair that death brings, the songs strike a chord with any fan of dark, slow- paced metal.
‘Ah Puch’ will be the band’s maiden foray into a full length release, aiming to win over fans of the genre from across the spectrum globally. This will be DIRGE’s tribute to the masters they’ve learnt from, a grand display of their own crushing sonic might and an attempt to leave a mark that shall everlast in the metalsphere with the help of producers Sanford Parker (YOB, Eyehategod, Pelican, etc) & Brad Boatright (Sleep, High on Fire, Bell Witch, etc). And this is only the first of many tales to be told, for as long as there is death, dirges will be sung.”
