After a 4-year break, the French atmospheric sludge metallers Dirge return with the release of their new seventh album, "Lost Empyrean", which will come out on December 14 via Debemur Morti Productions. Above, you can check the title track of the upcoming record.
According to a press release, boasting a 2 and ½ year writing process and mixing/mastering credits by Raphaël Bovey at the MyRoom Studio (Wilhelmina, Schammasch, Zatokrev), "Lost Empyrean" serves as a soundtrack to the dual relationship between the primordial quintessence colliding with the earthly body and the illusory nature of providence upon the somber, meager trappings of existence.
