Album notes:
Maeskyyrn is a black metal entity born of Montreal, Quebec, in 2017. It released a first demo, “Thoughts Of Shattered Dreams,” in January 2018, and assembled as a live band. On October 17, 2019, the sky will turn black as Maeskyyrn prepares to reveal Interludes, their first full length, to the mortal world via Hypnotic Dirge Records.

With its raw guitars and tortured screams, the full band’s aesthetic is reminiscent of the second wave of black metal. But deep under its charcoaled skin, Maeskyyrn takes advantage of modern technologies, as can be seen in the drum recording, overall production, and layers of discrete background synth. Indeed, as the album title suggests, Maeskyyrn brings forth a number of atmospheric interludes, thus pacing the album with brief uncomfortable moments of respite, before dragging you into the darkest pits with a series of long, punishing tracks. The end result is a traditional but highly unorthodox black metal album, with hints of eclecticism that reveal themselves and grows on you upon each listen, slowly rotting you to the core.

This album will appeal to fans of black metal in general, but also to those who have been following Hypnotic Dirge Records since its very first inception. The label is proud to add Maeskyyrn’s Interlude to a long tradition that also includes classic black metal albums from bands like Silent Path, Neige et Noirceur, Funeral Fornication, and Obsidian Tongue.
“Interlude” is presented in a 6 panel digipack with an accompanying 8 page booklet featuring the album’s lyrics and artwork from Bharaduur and Luciana Nedelea.

Tracklist:
1 - Introduction. The Artificial Light (5:13)
2 - Gathering Believers Among Sheep (7:33)
3 - Interlude I (2:45)
4 - These Battlefields, Where None Walk Twice (7:45)
5 - Interlude II (1:10)
6 - The Slow Death of the Years And Other Omens (9:26)
7 - Interlude III (0:57)
8 - Of Forests and Troubled Pasts (9:21)
9 - The End (2:04)
Total Playing Time: 46:00
