Hypnotic Dirge Updates and News

ALBUM RELEASE: NOTTURNO - Obsessions [LP Edition]

Posted by Hypnotic Dirge Records on Tuesday, April 30, 2024 Under: Notturno
Two years ago today, Italian atmospheric black metal band Notturno released their debut album "Obsessions" on Hypnotic Dirge. Since then, many have asked for a LP edition of the album, especially since their second album "Inside" was released last autumn on both CD and LP. Today, on the anniversary of Obsessions, we are glad to be able to rectify that with the official LP edition of the album! The LP edition is presented in an edition of 200 copies, split between two variants - a "Golden Skull" variant, and a "Frozen Stars" variant, available to pre-order now!

Shipping is scheduled for June 2024 but it is likely we will be able to begin shipping copies out a bit earlier!

Album notes:
"Obsessions" is the debut album of the newest project of multi-instrumentalist Vittorio Sabelli (Dawn of a Dark Age, Incantvm) called NOTTURNO. A melancholic trip into the obsessive compulsions that take shape within our lives, the psychological torment, and the scourge of madness that takes hold inside the ancient walls of the human psyche, peering around the dark corners within all of us.

NOTTURNO develops its atmosphere through lengthy songs with strong dynamics and pacing, keeping the listener lost in a reverie and crafting an immersive experience at once melancholic and infectious, floating between Atmospheric and Depressive Black Metal, Doom, and Chamber music - intimate and possessing a strong character highlighted by the unique and singular expressiveness of female vocalist Kjiel (Eyelessight) and organically driven drum work of Sven.
