Hypnotic Dirge Updates and News


July 29, 2022

We are now launching the second round of our summer sale, once again lasting for one week, but with a greater discount this time around!!
From Today July 29, until next Thursday August 4, you can now get get 30% off any order over $50, and 40% off any order over $100!
This offer applies to everything in our shop, from Hypnotic Dirge releases and merch, as well as our extensive distro of 1000+ titles.

Simply fill your cart as usual, and use either the code "30OFF" or "40OFF" depending on if your order is over $50 or over $100

As has been alluded to, but not really spoken about in great length, Hypnotic Dirge is going through a major transitionary phase this year. Beginning in 2023, HDR will be headquartered in Portugal although some stock will remain in North America for obvious logistical reasons. On that note, hoodies and shirts will be especially difficult to ship across the ocean, so orders of merch bundles are especially appreciated right now :)

It should also be mentioned that the webshop (as well as Bandcamp) will be completely closed for orders beginning in mid-October and won't reopen again until early 2023, so keep that in mind in the coming weeks. More on this soon.

June 17, 2022
Today, we release the debut album of Russian Post-Black Metal band SWAMPBORN, entitled "Beyond Ratio".

Order CD 
Order Bundles
Digital [Name-your-price]

Combining assertive (post) black metal with a powerful and solid, at times almost death metal sound, its music comes as a massive flow of energy, consisting of a flurry of drums, multi-layered guitar canvases, piercing melodies and expressive vocals, rusty and ominous like an apocalyptic sermon.

While at the core the band's music is based on moder...

SONG PREMIERE: Tishina - Jutro Poslednjeg Dana

May 20, 2022
No Clean Singing is hosting a premiere of the second single from the upcoming Tishina album "Uvod...", this time for the track "Jutro Poslednjeg Dana" (The Morning of the Last Day)

"The song creates a feeling of fiery splendor from the beginning, with big jolting grooves and a high-flying melody that darts and swirls, but shadows fall across the music when Panić‘s massive growl enters the fray. There’s still a darting and shining quality to the melody, but it begins to sound forlorn and b...
