Dirge - Elysian Magnetic Fields (2011)

Full Length, Division Records
April, 2011

Genre: Atmospheric Sludge/Post-Metal
Region: France

A very heavy french band flying under the radar, Dirge play sludge/post-metal and have been consistent when it comes to quality releases. Elysian Magnetic Fields is their fifth release and it is a dense and massive record with layered effects and mounds of atmosphere, a great deal of slow and heavy riffing over top of some well placed synths and samples, occasionally coupled with strained yells from the vocalist.

Eight lengthy songs in the vein of Cult of Luna, Light Bearer, Pelican, Supercontinent, Empires, Rosetta, Hive Destruction, etc.

  1. Hi

    Thx for erase the link to pirating the album.

    This new album is NOT AVAILABLE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD but available on CD and LP there : &

  2. Silly to have asked for it to be removed. I have never heard of the band, but the description and album art had me very intrigued. However, having the link removed means I will not be able to listen to the music and a potential listener has been sacrificed. No one is going to buy your music without hearing it first.

  3. really awsome album by the way, a must listen in my opinion and probably the best 2011 sludge/post core album
