Nachtterror – Judgement (Hypnotic Dirge)

Symphonic Black Metal band Nachtterror…no, hang on, merely using the term “Symphonic Black Metal” does not do Nachtterror justice. OK, as labels go, it’s not a million miles away and yes there are plenty of Symphonic Black Metal elements to… Continue Reading →

Maeskyyrn – Interlude (Hypnotic Dirge)

Ooo, here’s an oddity. This is the debut full length by Quebec based black metal band Maeskyyrn, but I have to say it doesn’t at first sight seem to fit in with the stuff I usually listen to from that… Continue Reading →

Frigoris – In Stille (Hypnotic Dirge)

‘In Stille’ is atmospheric beyond belief. The black metal soldiers of Frigoris have created a magnificent beast, entwining and deep, multi-layered atmospheres with beauty and grace a plenty. Each track on the release is a complete journey in itself and… Continue Reading →

Kassad – London Orbital (Hypnotic Dirge)

We last heard from one-man, anonymous, London based black metal entity Kassad with debut album ‘Faces Turn Away’ back in 2017. The project intrigued me then and does so all the more now. London Orbital takes a ring-road around our… Continue Reading →

Sertraline – These Mills Are Oceans (Hypnotic Dirge)

Citalopram, Venlafaxine, Sertraline, those little pills known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors make the bad old world that little bit more bearable for those of us that simply cannot cope with it. Helping with anxiety and depression and simply stopping… Continue Reading →

Mavradoxa – Nightmarrow (Hypnotic Dirge)

North America has a rich heritage when it comes to atmospheric black metal with bands such as Wolves in the Throne Room, Agalloch, Alda and Panopticon having evolved a style of their own, evoking images of desolate landscapes and dense… Continue Reading →

None – Damp Chill Of Life (Hypnotic Dirge)

Although I’m writing about this in the summertime the Damp Chill Of Life is never far away waiting to cast its arthritic pall on proceedings. Masters of depressive and atmospheric doomed blackness, USA based shadowy entities None are back with… Continue Reading →

The Haunting Green – Natural Extinctions (Hypnotic Dirge)

How about some Eco-doom from Italian duo The Haunting Green? ‘Natural Extinctions’ is the first full-length recording from Cristiano Perin (guitar, vocals, and electronics) and drummer/vocalist Chantal Fresco, and is a potent brew of experimental dirge, and persuasive power. A… Continue Reading →

Omgeving – Wijde Wijdte (Hypnotic Dirge)

Instrumental albums and artists used to really bug me, I can’t quite put my finger on why they just did. Perhaps it was the fact that I didn’t have much time or care for more progressive sounds, or maybe it… Continue Reading →

Il Vuoto – Vastness (Hypnotic Dirge)

It is time to enter “the void” courtesy of Italian composer Matteo Gruppi el maestro behind everything we hear on Il Vuoto’s second full length album following on from ‘Weakness’ in 2015. We are informed that ‘Vastness is a painting… Continue Reading →
