DIRE are a Black Metal/Sludge/Punk Crossover Band from Dallas, Texas, USA.

DIRE are an excellent Black Metal/Sludge/Punk Metal Band who feature members (Matt, Justin and Jared) of another band - Black Smoke Sermon who have been on this blog before.
Well it looks Black Smoke Sermon are no more and have morphed into something better, louder and more powerful than ever - DIRE
They have a couple of songs streaming on their BandCamp Page. Believe me these guys are fucking great. Especially Grey Matter which features great bleak dwon-tempo with killer vocals to match.
DIRE are anything but. These guys have the makings of a top-notch Sludge/Black Metal Band to check out when they finally release their debut release. One that I will be really looking forward to.
