Immundus signs deal with Quartier 23

June 13, 2010

Immundus has signed a deal with the Ambient/Experimental label Quartier 23 , and has thus left Hypnotic Dirge Records. I would like to thank Bruno Duarte - solo member of the project Immundus and a founding member of the original Hypnotic Dirge lineup for his cooperation and partnership over the past 18 months. We have successfully released the acclaimed "Haunted Memories" album together which was the first pro-CD Digipack release on HDR back in April 2009, as well as two digital albums since he joined the label. There were/are no hostilities between us whatsoever, and I wish him the best of luck with the next chapter in his project, and hopefully Quartier 23 is the right label for Immundus to present his haunting soundscapes on a label a little more suited to his style! We remain good friends through all this, and it will not affect us personally, after is only music! We will continue to follow his developments and would gladly distribute his forthcoming full-length album in 2011.

Now, for a bit of a general statement about the state of Hypnotic Dirge Records - some of you may be a little bit alarmed about our slow release schedule through the first half of 2010, but rest assured that the second half of 2010 is shaping up to be extremely busy! We have some fantastic releases planned for the next 6-9 months, and my financial situation seems to have gotten to the point where I can release new material at a regular pace once again. Throughout the long history of a label, there is bound to be some personnel changes due to projects leaving, projects being kicked off, and projects being put to rest, but through all this, Hypnotic Dirge Records will continue on, and progress as it sees fit. Our next release kicking off the start of an extremely busy and proporous second half of 2010 will be the new Exiled From Light album 'There is no beauty left here...' released as a double-album on Pro-CD which you can now pre-order HERE! 


Reviews of the 'Poemia' Free Download Single Release

March 4, 2010

From the opening notes of 'Poemia', Immundus once again underlines that his music defines the dark ambient genre, delineating his ability to hold an audience and translate solitude into a melodic design.

'Poemia' is a three single album based on the literary works of Edgar Allan Poe, and is the fourth auditory vision from the Norwegian ambient artist.

'Poemia' is a work that holds one concept, and thus its progressions seem to be a larger depiction rather than three divided pieces. They all...

Immundus Interview with Matt Caughlin

March 4, 2010

Interview with Matt Coughlin

With the rise of black metal in the underground music industry we find many garage and bedroom bands on the rise that don’t hold up to the mastery of the pioneers in the genre. Even more so, as Varg Vikernes, the father of atmospheric black metal delved into the realms of the dark ambient genre, it created the pathway for unfortunately even more bedroom solo artists. With the thousands of acts releasing demos it seems more challenging for a music collector to f...

Exploring that which haunts us, making the paranormal and the unknown tangible. Immundus brings forth these reflections, and leaves us to mirror our own stories through his music. Coming under a moniker that translates to ruin and impurity, the mind behind Immundus, Bruno Duarte, revealed his inspirations, influences, atmospheric changes ...

Immundus has been nothing but a pseudonym since my early teens on all the music project and bands I was involved with back from when I was 15 years old...nowadays it has become a part of me and therefore transformed into an ambient music project mainly based on haunting and ghostly atmospheres under this same name.
