4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Enormous Piece of Heavy, Dark Mood October 29, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I'm not certain how I'll feel about this album in a year, but at the moment, this is one of the most stand-out striking discs of music I have heard in a while, and certainly the most interesting music I have caught wind of from France since Taal.

NOTE: Although the price listed here is comparable to the 2-CD import release price listed by the record label, and thus suggests it is, in fact, a 2-disc set, nevertheless, Amazon says there is only one disc. At the moment, the truth of the matter is that I'd happily pay the asking price, even for the first disc only.

DIRGE identify themselves as post-rock. Consequently, one may be prepared for sprawling music that is very non in terms of what one normally expects of "rock". The fact that the second disc consists of one single epic-length title track should be more than enough to underscore this. Post-rock also implies that the critics will have a difficult time classifying the music; this will be true, only if you are concerned to classify the band.

"Méridian," at 19'24", opens with a breathy drone, immediately invoking panoramas and vistas, into the midst of which shuffles a melancholy, gothish bass line. Slow, multiple doom guitars then saw through the middle of everything, with a convecting bass line that is more felt than heard. The raspy shouted vocals that tower over this would seem fairly unsurprising except for the way that the mix reverberates it into an inchoate howl, as the guitars step forward to fill the space abandoned by the vocalist. When the vocals return, complete with timbre variations on the guitar, there is a sound like a car antenna clicking over bicycle spokes. This is just a mild distraction from the somber, shambling hulk of the music.
