Hypnotic Dirge Records turns 10 years old today!

Posted by Nick Skog on Sunday, October 21, 2018, In : General Label News 
In a small, chaotic and unorganized shared apartment ten years ago, I decided to embark on a journey to launch a record label to release music from my project Ancient Tundra and perhaps some other related projects. Never did I imagine that HDR would still be active ten years later nor that we would have the opportunity to release music from the caliber of artists we've worked with over the years!

To mark this occasion, we had plans to print some new Hypnotic Dirge merch, but unfortunately we'r...

Posted by Nick Skog on Monday, September 21, 2015, In : General Label News 
Hello everyone, it's been a while (besides the webshop posts)

We've been quietly working in the background and now have three new releases planned between December 2015 - February 2016, all of which will be doom releases co-released between Hypnotic Dirge and Solitude Productions! We will announce these releases in October! This is the way of the future now and it's simply become unaffordable for us to continue on making releases alone with abysmally low sales and ever-increasing expenses.
