Hypnotic Dirge Updates and News

DISTRO UPDATE: Vendetta Records [vinyl]

June 20, 2021
We received a selection of vinyl from Vendetta Records about 6 weeks ago but dragged our feet a bit in making them available. 

As we only have 2x of each record, it felt a bit cumbersome to add all of these to the official webshop, but I added them to our Discogs page last night. 

This is no small update, as 26 titles new and old have been added. Have a look below for the list of titles and place your order on our Discogs if interested.

Some of the sleeves have slight corner bends from the shipping from Germany to Canada. This is stated on the details of that record if that is the case.

Available now:

WANDAR “Landlose Ufer” LP
DIATRIBE “odite sermonis” LP
VUKARI “divination” LP
VITAL SPIRIT “in the face that looks through death” LP

This Friday, April 2, Hypnotic Dirge Records will be partnering with Raven Trust to raise legal defence funds for indigenous peoples of Canada!

As some of you must know, the history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada since the arrival of European settlers has been one of forced relocations, structural and behavioural violence, kidnappings, and cultural genocide. Although the violence against Indigenous Peoples across Canada is not as "overt" as it has been in the past, the legacy of settler-colon...

TRACK PREMIERE: Kassad - The Maze

March 20, 2021
Kassad, a stalwart of the modern post-black metal scene, combines abrasive and gritty black metal with hallucinatory ambience and spiraling post-rock intricacy. Kassad’s name is synonymous with misery, futility, and madness of modern urban life.

Originally recorded in the sessions for 2020's "London Orbital" and now available for the first time as a single, "The Maze" continues to explore the idea of a malevolent, decaying city. The listener is trapped. There is nowhere to turn. And somethin...

VINYL: Feral Light - Life Vapor

March 17, 2021
We have some copies of Feral Light's Life Vapor on LP available to order now!

The LP was self-released by the band but international shipping from Canada is cheaper than from the US so we are helping with distribution. 

We only have 10 copies currently, so order quickly if you're interested.

The record itself is a beautiful burgundy/silver merge and the art and design was reworked for the vinyl edition by Unexpected Specter. Mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin.

MERCH: a noend of mine - Sanctuaires merch available to pre-order

March 15, 2021
A few days ago, we released a noend of mine's second album "Sanctuaires" which is now available on many digital platforms.

Unfortunately, due to issues at Ukrainian customs, the CD production has been delayed and we're now expecting a mid April release for the CD.

However, today we are also launching pre-orders for "Sanctuaires" shirts, enamel pins, and a merch bundle. 
Unlike the CD, all of these items are either already here or on transit from Vancouver to Victoria (just a short ferry ride awa...
