Hypnotic Dirge Records Webstore


The official Hypnotic Dirge Webshop. An auditory palette for the estranged and eclectic.
This shop specializes in distributing some of the best Black and Doom Metal from across the world, importing albums from the most groundbreaking and consistently solid labels and bands around. 

All albums in our shop are brand new, never-before-played CD's that are in mint condition.
However, most jewel case releases do not include the original wrapping as that is the nature of international shipping between labels.

We believe you will find one of the best selections of underground Black and Doom Metal in this shop at some of the fairest prices online, which will allow you to build your collection of rare limited albums without breaking your wallet. The vast majority of the full-length albums are available for $C10, which exchanges to only around $8US and €7EUR. Some prices are slightly higher to account for wholesale costs and other factors.

New additions to the shop are made at the start of each month and included in the "Latest Additions" section.
We also have a Discogs page which includes a few albums that are not listed here, usually in very limited quantity.


All prices are listed in Canadian dollars.

 Shipping:

The price of items in this webstore is BEFORE shipping. 
Shipping will be calculated upon checkout depending on your location and the amount of items you are ordering. Once you enter your address, the store will recognize what region you are in and add shipping accordingly.

CanadaPost has notoriously high shipping rates. This is unfortunate, but totally out of our control.  As a result, we recommend buying 2, 5, or 10 CD's in particular to pay the least amount of shipping per CD, and to avoid buying only 1 CD at a time especially if you are from outside North America to save on shipping.

1 CD - Canada - $2.50
1 CD - USA - $5.00
1 CD - Rest of World - $7.50

2 CD's - Canada - $4.00
2 CD's - USA - $8.00
2 CD's - Rest of World - $11.00

3 - 5 CD's - Canada - $11.00
3 - 5 CD's - USA - $13.00
3 - 5 CD's - Rest of World - $20.00

6 - 10 CD's - Canada - $15.00
6 - 10 CD's - USA - $18.00
6 - 10 CD's - Rest of World - $38.00

11 CD's +, - Canada - $18.00
11 CD's +, - USA - $26.00
11 CD's +, - Rest of World - $55.00

All international orders are mailed by Airmail.
Orders within Canada are mailed by regular mail (expedited for parcels of 4 CD's or more.)

It is also possible in some cases to save on shipping by shipping without cases. 
If this is an option you're interested in, we will need to do an order manually (this shop is only set up to configure shipping with cases included)

In some cases, the shipping rate can drop from $20 to $10 and in other cases, it won't make a difference. It depends on where you live and the amount you're ordering. If you think it will make a decent enough difference in your shipping cost and you don't mind receiving the albums without cases, send us an email and we can set that up.

In 95% of cases, orders arrive within 1-4 weeks.
If you have not received your order after one month, contact us. [

 Miscellaneous:  

Over 600 of the albums available in the webshop are in the "Distribution Releases" category and are releases from labels and bands around the world. Most of the distributed releases are only available in quite limited quantities and sometimes do sell out. However, we aim to keep titles available and do get restocks of sold out items.

Unless we have tons of stock, the exact quantity of a particular release is also listed directly on the item so you know when we are almost sold out!

Categories are set up by genre in the "Distributed Releases" section though not on the Hypnotic Dirge and Solitude Productions sections.
When you go to "Doom Metal" in the distro section for example, it will not include the Hypnotic Dirge and Solitude albums which are Doom Metal. In the distro section, some releases are included in more than one genre category because it can easily fit into more than one genre. Of course, this "system" is not perfect but it is organized pretty well.  

Albums in the "Discount Shop" category are not doubled up in its genre category. This is to prevent pricing problems because if you order an album which is supposed to be on sale for 50% off in the "Black Metal" category for example, the discount would not apply. This is because the transaction needs to occur in the "Clearout Sale" category for the discount to work.
