French atmospheric sludge deliver their first EP of post-apocalyptic dreariness
Without a doubt, Dirge creates music for the post-apocalypse. Across six LP's, they've transformed their sound from Industrial Metal to straight up dreadful, atmospheric sludge doom, in which every songs sounds as if it represents the end of mankind. On their first ever EP, 'Alma|Baltica', Dirge sheds the vocals for 35 minutes worth of instrumental tracks that build from simple guitar chords and conclude with raging atmospherics and tones that are soothing, yet eerie in structure. Stand out tracks include "Alma", "Black Shore", and "Baltica". Whether you're a fan of Dirge or looking for something new, 'Alma|Baltica' is a must listen!
