A new video update from DIRGE WITHIN vocalist Jeremy "Jerms" Genske can be viewed below. The 15-minute clip includes a montage of the band writing and doing pre-production for its sophomore album.
DIRGE WITHIN hopes to enter the studio this spring to begin recording its new CD. The band's guitarist, Shaun Glass, previously stated about the group's new material, "I think the songs are more powerful and musical than some of the past tracks but still remaining true to our sound."
In addition to Glass and Genske, DIRGE WITHIN features guitarist Matt Szlachta, bassist James Pezanoski (ex-FROM ALL WITHIN), and drummer Frankie Harchut (ex-THE DOOMSDAY CATALYST).
The band released a new digital EP on September 14, 2010 via iTunes featuring the rare track "Eulogy" as well as a re-recorded version of an old demo song, "Ties That Bind".
DIRGE WITHIN's debut album, "Force Fed Lies", came out on September 1, 2009 via E1 Music (formerly Koch Records). The CD was mixed by Jeff Rose and Martin "Ginge" Ford of Nott-In-Pill studios in Newport, Wales, United Kingdom. Edsel Dope (DOPE) produced the effort alongside Chris Djuricic (Studio One). The album features guest appearances by Corey Beaulieu of TRIVUM and Michael Angelo Batio of NITRO fame. The cover artwork was created by Stephen Jensen from F3 studios.
The "Forever the Martyr" video was filmed in Charlotte, North Carolina with director Ramon Boutviseth (TRIVIUM, INCUBUS).
