Hypnotic Dirge News and Updates

Skagos - Ást 

We have procured a few of the very last copies remaining of this gorgeous DLP. We have 5 copies in the shop, which are among the final copies available anywhere in the world. 

The legendary debut album by Cascadian black metal innovators, Skagos. The sound of life rising out of the rain soaked forest floors of British Columbia. A cry to the grey heavens by the voice of the human animal.
The standard edition comes on 160gm semi-transparent moss-green vinyl in a heavy stock reverse-board printed gatefold sleeve with hand-painted artwork and lyrics by Roxana X. Dushkevich. D-side etching.
Presented by Pesanta Urfolk, Eternal Warfare and Noxious Noise.

Chiral - Gazing Light Eternity

Amidst the chaos of the NONE II record and getting those delayed orders out to everybody, we forgot that we received copies of Chiral's Gazing Light Eternity from Viridian Flame Records in that shipment.
4 Copies are available in our store.

140g transparent/beige marbled vinyl,comes with a 4-page booklet. Strictly limited to 150 copies. 

A1. Part I (The Gazer)
A2. Part II (The Haze)
B1. Part III (The Crown)
B2. Part IV (The Hourglass)

Marche Funèbre - Einderlicht

We have discounted the price of the new Marche Funèbre record "Einderlicht" to $C28 (from $C36), or $C22 each if you order 6 copies or more. 
This record is presented in a very nice looking gatefold and also includes two bonus tracks - "Gone" and "Lonesome"

Definitely the most comprehensive physical representation of Marche Funèbre's new music!

- 140g vinyl at 33 rpm in black poly-lined inner sleeves
- 350gsm outer sleeve, with matte lamination
- packed in a re-sealable plastic sleeve

TRAILER: Wills Dissolve - Echoes [Trailer #3]

October 30, 2020
"Echoes" has been released for 2 months now, but there is still plenty to be said about the process behind the creation of the record. In this third and final installment of the "Echoes" trailers, bassist Shaun Weller and guest vocalist Damian Smith (Altars of Grief) discuss the recording process, the album artwork from Adam Burke (Nightjar Illustration), the album's concept, isolation from COVID-19, and the story behind how Damian ended up doing guest vocals on the record.

They look and feel great, and best of all, they're already in stock, so they will ship immediately and you don't have to worry about pre-orders!

MUSIC VIDEO: Marche Funèbre - The Maelstrom Mute

September 3, 2020
Marche Funèbre releases the new video clip for the track "The Maelstrom Mute" from their upcoming album "Einderlicht", due for release on September 25.

Following the lyric video for "When All Is Said", this is the second and final clip to be released prior to the album release.
