The CD edition of the Orphans of Dusk - Revenant album is finally available through Hypnotic Dirge Records and Solitude Productions! Initially, the band self-released their debut EP digitallyin the summer of 2014 but after some really positive reactions from doom listeners and the press, and some demand for a physical version, it became clear that it was well worth it to give this album a physical CD release while we wait for the Orphans to be reborn and to bring forth new music. For now, this fantastic debut album will have to suffice! 

The first 100 from each webshop will receive a free 11cm x 7cm Orphans of Dusk sticker with their order!

Feedback:  
"The great Pete Steele would definitely approve. Orphans Of Dusk deliver enormous, powerful goth-doom riffs that are infused with both delight and derision.” 
- DoomMetalHeaven 

"Holy hell! You know that feeling you get when you have come across something that rocks you back on your heels? [...] Well, listening to ‘Revenant’ left my awesome-metal-sense tingling." 
- MetalDisciple.com 

"Orphans of Dusk are clearly a band with heaps of talent, a lot on their minds, and the urge to pack 'Revenant' to the brim with content." 
- Doom-Metal.com 

"Orphans Of Dusk is a duo with limitless potential.” 
-SorrowEternal 

‘Revenant’ is a great-sounding and great-looking release that is presented with great care and attention to detail. It skilfully balances ferocity and melancholy, varying between complexity and simplicity, first caressing and then pummelling. Perhaps most tellingly of all, when it’s over, you’re left wanting more."
