Dirge was formed in January 2014, strongly influenced by doom metal with the likes of sludge and stoner. Bands like Candlemass, Black Sabbath, Eyehategod, Trouble, Sleep, Melvins, Autopsy, Acid bath etc heavily influence the band's sound.
Currently working on their debut album, the originals are composed on a Historic-myth-fiction lyrical theme about the resurgence of the violent Maya.
This makes the music of Dirge to be maddeningly sludge driven doom with fuzzed out overdrive, ‘10000 ton’ heavy riffs, low tuned distorted basslines with screaming angst-ridden vocals.
The band's current lineup consists of Tabish Khidir on vocals, Ashish Dharkar and Varun Patil on guitars, Harshad Bhagwat on bass and Prathamesh Lele on drums
