Jon  thumbnail
Jon Long drawn out songs that meander along at mid-paced slog, with vocals poking through only intermittently. Dystopian, industrial, bleak. Dirge did a great thing releasing this beast of a compilation right at the end, I'm loving it. Favorite track: Below (Twist Of The Knife).
Darknight thumbnail
Darknight Vanishing Point is the kick ass industrial metal album to end all albums eventual finish to an exciting heavy career. I only have to applaud the mighty Dirge, a magnificent entity of heavy musicality👏 Favorite track: S.N.T.D.F.

Two years after ending a career rich of seven albums, one EP and a handful of demotapes, DIRGE finally unfolds its final testimony, christened VANISHING POINT. A retrospective collection of unreleased and rarities that traces the sonic evolution of the band, from the original mid 90s industrial rusts to the granitic post-metal of its epilogue Lost Empyrean in 2018, through the progressive monoliths of the 2000s.
The chronological order helps recontextualize each song in its time, as well as putting it in the band's own history. Thus, the 15 non-album tracks which constitute the corpus of VANISHING POINT revisit every period, every record, every line-up through previously unpublished material (albums outtakes, special recordings, remixes) and hard-to-find pieces (demos, bonus tracks, compilation appearances). In addition to this extensive compendium (complemented with two exclusive reinterpretations by Kill The Thrill and Treha Sektori) comes Spiraling Skywards, a performance captured in Paris in 2005, first and sole live document in DIRGE's discography.
Presented as a triple CD digisleeve with liner notes and unreleased artworks, the compilation benefits from the mix, restoration and mastering work of Raphaël Bovey (Gojira, Nostromo, Impure Wilhelmina...). A clean and solid production which gathers more than two decades of music in a coherent and progressive whole, while keeping the specific features of DIRGE's various incarnations over the years.
Making of VANISHING POINT a comprehensive and definitive summary.
