In a combination of heavy, riff-based doom metal, and with references to bands like High On Fire, Crowbar and Black Sabbath, Copenhagen-based DIRT FORGE are ready to challenge the Richter scale with their powerful stranglehold on the metal genres’ black sheep. The band has a reputable live experience supporting such acts as Crowbar, Monolord and Throneless.
Now the band will release their debut LP entitled “Soothsayer”. The Danish trio introduce a debut album which thematically celebrates the chaos related to several fundamental aspects of the human nature, psyche, and society. The album is made in collaboration with producer Chris Fielding (Electric Wizard, Primordial, Napalm Death, Conan). Dirt Forge is an edge-of-the-seat insensitivity band, whether the tempo is slow and ground shaking as the drift of the continental plates or lightning fast as a rapid leopard!
In its short period of existence Dirt Forge has managed to play a variety of different shows ranging from the back of a truck outside a party on a cold January evening, to supporting US legends Crowbar on the Copenhagen stop of their Summer Of Doom 2015-tour, harvesting great reviews for their great balanced sound, huge potential, ability of writing hook lines, and bringing their black and morbid humor to the stage. And the plan is bright and clear: Play shows, and never stop pushing the limits!
“Soothsayer” is out May 30th, 2017
