Hypnotic Dirge Records is the official North American distributor of the prominent Russian Doom Label Solitude Productions. All of the available Solitude Productions releases as well their releases under the banner of BadMoodMan Music (focused more on Death-doom, Gothic Doom, and Depressive Black Metal) and Slow Burn Records (focused on post-rock , post-metal, and sludge) will be available through Hypnotic Dirge, including new releases!
When will new Solitude releases be available through Hypnotic Dirge?
When an album is released by Solitude Productions, it could become available through Hypnotic Dirge Records anywhere from directly on the release date to 4-5 months afterwards. This is because we get large shipments from Solitude Prod. every few months rather than on every release date, which would be quite excessive.
An agreement was made with Solitude Productions in 2011 to become their official distributor in North America and have all of their albums available from one webshop on this continent! The albums are purchased at wholesale cost from Solitude so when you order one of these albums you are supporting both Soltiude Prod. and Hypnotic Dirge!
No, not really. Our labels remain separate with two completely independent operations. However, in 2013 we co-released the Vin de Mia Trix - Once Hidden From Sight album and since then have also co-released other albums from Orphans of Dusk, Womb, Immensity, Negative Voice, and Subterranean Disposition.
Solitude Productions also distributes all of the available Hypnotic Dirge releases for cheaper/quicker shipping for Russian listeners!
