Dirge is a 5 piece doom metal band from Pune. Strongly influenced by doom metal with likes of sludge and stoner, bands like Candlemass, Black Sabbath, Eyehategod, Trouble, Melvins, Autopsy, Acid bath etc. heavily influence the band’s sound.
This makes the music of Dirge to be maddeningly sludge driven doom with ‘10000 ton’ heavy riffs, fuzzed out bass lines along with screaming angst-ridden vocals.
Currently working on their first release, the lyrics are based on a Historic-myth-fiction about the resurgence of the violent Maya.
Nicotine: The band steadily built momentum by playing around in colleges and competitions within the city, as well as outside in cities like Chandigarh, Bhopal, Nagpur, Jaipur and Pune.
They also cover bands like Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden etc. to name a few.
Digvijay Bhonsale (Vocals/Guitars) from the band has played gigs as a solo artist at ‘The Cardiff Arts Institute’, ‘The Full Moon’ and ‘Gwdihw’ in the United Kingdom.
