As with most websites around now, we have an obligatory links section. Instead of building a vast connection of links to record labels, magazines, radio stations, and bands whenever we come across anything on the internet, and also instead of putting a small handful of links and having everything run stagnant and out of date without updates for years, we aim to keep this section both up-to-date as well as to only feature links for record labels, magazines, blogs, radio stations, and artists which we have corresponded with in the past and feel important to share their activity with others. If a link to listed in this section of the website, it is because we like what they provide and wish to share it with others.

We have decided to scale down our links section, and focus only on posting links to our favourite record labels, press zines (either print or web), and other websites. We could easily spend days upon days finding links to all of the countless webstores, and promoters around the world that exist but that really would be really pointless in my opinion. Also, most of the record labels listed below also distribute Hypnotic Dirge releases, so if you are searching for a more "local" web-shop to order HDR titles, check out the list of record labels below.

Recently, a miscellaneous links section has been added to include non-music related links that I feel has real value. This is of course based on personal preference and if you don't like the type of information provided in the miscellaneous links section, that would mean that we differ in opinion on these type of matters. Ultimately, Hypnotic Dirge is about music so if you don't agree with these personal interests, just avoid them. 
However, I hope you can find value in the miscellaneous links provided.

Please do not ask to trade links with me. This is not a promotional agency or a way to advertise for your record label or website. I will not post links on here that others ask me to. The only way your link will appear here is if I feel like it deserves to be shared with other people.

Independent Bands 
Specific to bands who choose to self-release and promote their releases exclusively since it would be too much to list all the bands also on labels, and since they get promotion already, it is better to focus on independent bands.
