Passion. Aggression. Power. Conviction.
DIRE is an American heavy metal band that embodies and inspires such ideas through their music. Implementing a diverse range of musical styles while maintaining a sound that is definitively metal, they set the bar high with their debut full-length, 'Volume I' and the 2017 EP, 'Depths', and have raised it even higher with 2021's 'Volume II'.
At just over an hour long and featuring fourteen original tracks, the long-awaited 'Volume II' has proven the perfect follow-up to the band's debut album. Blistering guitar solos, memorable metal riffs, and infectious melodies abound on DIRE's latest offering, described by KingdomCore as "heavy metal in its purest and richest form".
