French post-metal/doom metallic outfit Dirge 1st formed like a duo back 1994. Primarily embracing even more industrial areas of the genre, the group would increase in regular membership and sound, ultimately drawing evaluations with such rings as Isis and Neurosis. The 1st changes started occurring in 1997, when the duo added one, which trio started to explore even more ‘sound’ components, and by 1998, had been ready to place their function to format, liberating the recording Down, Last Level that yr. By enough time of recording number 2, Blight and Eyesight Below a Faded Sunlight, in 2000, Dirge got become a little more like their name, slowing the speed, and — most of all — increasing the preparations and tracks to encompass a multitude of changes and space to test. In 2004, Dirge released their third recording, And Shall the Sky Descend, and spent another 12 months touring with such rings as Unsane, Nasum, and Cult of Luna. In 2007, right now a five piece (Marc T. — guitars, vocals, Alain B. — drums, acoustic guitars, Christophe D. — examples, Stéphane L. — guitars, and Christian M. — bass) released the critically well-received Wings of Business lead Over Dormant Seas within the Equilibre Music label.
