The Dirge - The Pursuit Of Suicide EP
Dublin, 2011, DIY, Download

Apologies to The Dirge lads for not getting this up sooner, but alas it is finally here. The Dirge are a young Dublin band playing a mix of hardcore and skacore. Four tracks on this EP, one being a Choking Victim cover, gives you an idea of the direction this band are heading towards, however to me the stand out track is Birth, Waste, Death which is a really well structured slowed down hardcore tune that reminds me of Moss Icon or Born Against. I dunno if that's what they were planning on but its comes of fucking great. I have only seen these guys once and am looking forward to seeing what they come up with next.
