Dirt Forge from Copenhagen, Denmark was founded in 2013. The trio plays doom/sludge metal with inspiration from High On Fire, Mastodon, Crowbar and Black Sabbath, among others, and use a heavy of dynamic soundscapes with everything from slow, fragile melodies and crushing riffs and thunderous drums.
Despite the band’s relatively short lifetime, they have already played a large amount of shows, including Roskilde Festival i 2018, and supported giants within their genre such as Crowbar (US), Church Of Misery (JAP) and Monolord (SE) and got chosen to play the prestigious When Copenhell Freezes Over festival in 2018 alongisde 5 of the best upcoming metal bands from Denmark. And besides having played a national tour with bands Bersærk, Grusom and Slowjoint and Sons Of Death Valley.
In May 2017 Dirt Forge released their self-financed debut record “Soothsayer”, recorded and produced by Chris Fielding in Skyhammer Studios, Liverpool, who have previously worked with giants such as Napalm Death, Electric Wizard, Primordial and his own band Conan. The tracks on the record have as of this day gotten over 115.000 streams on Spotify, numerous positive reviews and was chosen as “Tip Of The Month” in Germany’s Rock Hard Magazine.
Dirt Forge is an intense live band, which, with ear-ripping guitar riffs, seismologic bass lines and a drum set that suffers by a incredibly hard-hitting drummer, without a doubt will leave a lasting impression on all concert goers.
