With the human visual field spanning 120 degrees the Copenhagen-based trio of Dirt Forge brings you the full 360. Heavy guitar riffs, chords and odd time signatures whirling around in a vortex of soundscapes, synths and interchanging roles of the instruments drag the listener through a lyric world of human flaws and inadequacies. Circling around progressive song writing there are no do’s/don’ts in the world of Dirt Forge – only ventures into the void of musical exploration.
A few years short of a decade of existence the band is on the verge of coming down with their second full-length album. Having spent most of the time in the wake of debut album Soothsayer touring – including stages at Children of the Sun Fest, When Copenhell Freezes Over, Sankt Hell and the famous Roskilde Festival – both domestic and foreign venues and playing shows with the likes of Dopelord, Crowbar, Church of Misery and Monolord, as well as a german tour with Sweden’s Mustasch, they have come around to record their third opus, once again with the skilled Chris Fielding (Conan, Boss Keloid, Primodial) at the helm.
Cities of Mars:
Cities of Mars from Gothenburg, Sweden, combine heavy doom riffs with ambient soundscapes and haunting vocals.The lyrics on each song adds a chapter in a continuing story, where a Soviet cosmonaut on a covert space mission in 1971 discovers an ancient Martian city and awakens a sleeping conspiracy from the dawn of humanity.
Formed in 2015 by Danne Palm, Christoffer Norén and Johan Aronstedt, the first two songs were recorded into a single produced by Esben Willems (Monolord/Berserk Audio) and released for the band’s first live show at the Wizard of Fuzz Festival. 2016 saw the release of Celestial Mistress, a three-song vinyl EP with the captivating artwork of Gothenburg-based graphic artist Axel Widén and the bands’ first European tour. More shows and new songs followed into 2017 when the album Temporal Rifts was released with a three week tour through Europe.
The Horologist followed on Ripple Music in 2019 when the band played the famous Desertfest London festival.
2020’s pandemic channeled all energy into new songs and yet uncharted musical territories – sharpened into their most ambitious album to date, the self-titled album Cities of Mars, released via Ripple Music in May 2022. Another European tour followed in 2022, including a show at Desertfest Antwerp.
