Hypnotic Dirge News and Updates

UPCOMING RELEASE: Kassad - London Orbital

November 23, 2019
Hypnotic Dirge Records will be releasing the new album from Kassad on January 10, 2020. Today, we are pleased to reveal the album cover and tracklist from the album!

1 - The Boundary (7:27)
2 - The Concrete (5:26)
3 - The Hope (8:14)
4 - The Hopeless (8:54)
5 - The Hollow (8:42)

Total: 38:46

Kassad conveys an all-encompassing sense of existential terror and claustrophobic anxiety that hits you and builds to a crescendo before everything descends into dread and finally nothingness. The misery, futility, and madness of modern urban life combining abrasive and gritty black metal with hallucinatory ambience and spiralling post-rock intricacy. The new album centers around modern urban living (and looks to a near future of megacities) where the city itself is a personified, malevolent being where human empathy and culture have been replaced by artificial intelligence.

Much like Kassad’s first full-length “Faces Turn Away”, “London Orbital” will be presented in an eco-sleeve accompanied with a minimalist booklet. We will also be printing a limited amount of t-shirts specifically for this release which we will revealing the artwork for soon!

Altars of Grief announces indefinite hiatus

November 15, 2019

Dear friends,

Unfortunately, after six years as a band, we’re announcing that we have decided to put Altars of Grief on hiatus for an indefinite period of time.

Words can’t express how grateful we are to everyone who’s followed us on this journey, and to all of the wonderful people we’ve had the privilege of meeting over the years. When we formed this band back in 2013, we couldn’t have imagined that it would grow into what it is now, or the kind of impact that it’s come to have on ...
