HDR - 036 : In my Shiver - Delicate Poison



PRE-ORDER | PREVIEW

In my Shiver is an experimental black metal/shoegaze band from Camerino, Italy with conceptual themes about the loneliness and sadness of modern life, cityscapes, and a critique of the dominant culture. In 2009 In my Shiver released their debut album “Black Seasons” through Solitude and Despair Music in South Korea and now they present their follow-up album “Delicate Poison.” Combining oppressive and ferocious black metal with melancholic modern depressive rock, In My Shiver blends these sounds to create an unrelenting modern depressive classic with amazing riffs and melodies. In particular In my Shiver utilizes dissonant chord structures to create an uncomfortable and claustrophobic atmosphere and has a strong ability in using contrasts throughout the album which is only heightened by a professional sound quality, strong musicianship, and a diverse vocal performance. This album will appeal to fans of post-black metal, and 80’s rock/electronic music, and in particular fans of Katatonia, Solefald, and early-Ulver.

III - Liquid Hour

VI - Empty Wealth

Also, there are limited quantity (nine copies) of In my Shiver's debut album "Black Seasons" available on the Hypnotic Dirge webstore HERE

PRE-ORDER | PREVIEW

Cold and mesmerizing atmospheric black metal from the Siberian region of Yugra in the city of Nizhnevartovsk, Windbruch presents their second full-length album “No stars, only full dark” after releasing their debut “Collisions of the World” in late 2009 on Sun and Moon Records. With their new effort, Windbruch succeeds in creating a delicate and emotional soundtrack for the heart of winter with a genuine sound rooted firmly in the original aura and atmosphere of black metal but with a distinct Russian twist. “No stars, only full dark” has a strong cinematic component to it turning the album into a journey. Dialogue from the Russian film “Stalker” is included in the track “Only Full Dark”, and “Neswa-Pawuk” is based on the novel “Nomads of the North” from the american writer James Oliver who wrote about two fugitives escaping to the Canadian tundra. An ode to all things cold, bleak, and distressing, “No stars, only full dark” is the perfect soundtrack for lonely cold winter nights.

“The whole album is something like a message from silent space or another reality. It is а sonic message to humanity to stop the exploitation of our home planet. Hundreds of years of war and over-consumption of the gifts of nature can not last forever. The future is coming. The dark future without stars. This concept finds reflection in the novel “Nomads of the North” by J. O. Curwood in some chapters and the cover itself refers to the same novel”
