PRE-ORDERS: NONE - selftitled + bonus track [12” vinyl]

January 16, 2020
In conjunction with Viridian Flame Records​, Hypnotic Dirge is proud to announce the launch of pre-orders for NONE’s seminal self-titled debut album pressed on wax for the very first time!

NONE’s selftitled album, originally released in April 2017, was the first chapter for this enigmatic depressive black metal legacy which would be followed by additional full-lengths in April 2018 and 2019. The vinyl edition of the self-titled album also includes NONE’s stand-alone single “Where Life Should Be” - previously unavailable in any physical medium  - as a bonus track.

300 copies of the record has been pressed in total, 140 of which will be available through Hypnotic Dirge and 140 copies through Viridian Flame. 3 editions of the vinyl are available - a “winter sky” edition, a “dirty snow” edition, and a classic black record. We expect these to go quickly so we advise those who are interested to order quickly once pre-orders go live!

The two opuses share a number of stylistic similarities; both are driven by soaring, melodic leads and roaring, tormented vocals over a backdrop of heavily saturated, melancholic chord riffing and mid-paced, thundering double bass and blast beats.

PRE-ORDERS: Kassad - London Orbital

December 13, 2019
Hypnotic Dirge is pleased to launch pre-orders for our first release of 2020. As we enter a new decade, no album release could better encapsulate the disconnection, disassociation, and perpetual anxiety that defines the modern world. “London Orbital” is the soundtrack of urban decay, monolithic megacities, and the mass surveillance that seems to be a foregone conclusion despite the public’s unease.



In addition to the “London Orbital” CD - presented in an eco-pack with an accompanying...
