2019-03-11 by cloakanddagger | 13 Comments
After 25 years together, French post-metal band Dirge have announced that they will be breaking up. They state in their Facebook post that they feel they have accomplished everything they want to with their music, and that they cannot commit the time, energy and money into being an independent band any more. Their full Facebook post can be read below.

The band recently released their 7th full-length album, Lost Empyrean.

Oh damn, that sucks, their last album was pretty good but the release timing was awful so it got under the radar of many people.

I only heard there last few albums, but Hyperion was a massive jam.
Sad to see them quit.

God these dudes were so fucking underrated their entire career. If anyone in this thread hasn't given them a listen and they appreciate some good post metal, download their discog asap.

Lost Empyrean was in my Top 10 albums of last year. Sad to hear of them disbanding, but they ended on a very high note.

Top 5 post metal band of all time and Elysian Magnetic Fields is a top 10 album of all time for me. Going to miss them bad.

25 years?! It's amazing that they've been around that long.

I second what Panzerchrist said. These guys really are top notch.
I respect them for recognising when they've tired their style out though. Much better to do that than release a series of increasingly mediocre albums.

Daaaaang. God bless you beautiful French bastards, thanks for all the jams. 25 years is a bloody long time to be doing anything so the timing is probably right.
