Artist: DIES IRAE
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Monster Melodies
Country: France
Price: $35.00
"Monster Melodies present Dies Irae featuring Dies Irae. A flagship group of the French progressive underground from the 70s, based on the French Riviera (Monaco). This record is the first record of this group to be released (not to be confused with the German namesake training krautrock record release on the Pilz label in 1971). It consists of tracks recorded on stage and in the studio from 1976 and 1978, when Dies Irae was at the top of its game. A record that will allow you to judge the qualities of this little-known group that claims its influences (including notorious groups of the era King Crimson, Van der Graaf Generator and Magma) nevertheless has a very personal and original touch which deserves to be included in the history of French rock. Gatefold sleeve. Transparent vinyl. Includes many inserts. Edition of 1000." - Monster Melodies.

Artist: DIES IRAE
Title: First
Format: LP
Label: Ohrwaschl
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
2016 release. "Ohrwaschl Records present a reissue of Dies Iraes First, originally released in 1971. German proto heavy metal and proto doom metal has always been more of an underground genre due to the fact that most bands only reached a regional level in every aspect. Dies Irae are certainly something of an exception to the rule when it comes to the quality. First is heavy and dark with open song structures that leave much room for experimentation. Despite the fact that the simmering fuzz guitar cuts through like a chainsaw, there are still many parts in each song showcasing a fondness for playful jazz-inspired passages where all musicians prove their skills and conjures a gloomy atmosphere. The musicians have a light-footed swing but in other cases, Dies Irae go utterly crazy in a psychedelic freak-out fashion. Trippy moments are abundant on First and come in between the hard-hitting, heavily-grinding doom outbursts. Nobody was even eager to call it doom yet but all the ingredients were there - Think of a jam session with Black Sabbath and Amon Düül II. This album is highly original and deserving of a place among the greatest krautrock albums of all times. The acid is audible and doing its work in a very skillful way. For fans of proto metal from the early 70s, who dig music with a progressive edge and have a fondness for trippy psychedelic rock."
