Norilsk announces signing with Hypnotic Dirge Records for the release of its debut full-length album!
December 12, 2014



Named after Siberia’s northernmost city, home of a famous heavy metal smelting complex, Norilsk is a doom-death band from Gatineau (Québec), Canada, who self-released their debut EP “Japetus” this past summer. Characterized by slow and crushing riffs, death growls, and atmospheric arrangements, its music draws comparison with doom-death bands such as My Dying Bride, Morgion and Ablaze in Hatred, but it also has a few sludge/post metal elements reminiscent of Isis and Morne. The two core band members include Nicolas Miquelon (bass, guitars, vocals, lyrics) and Nick Richer (drums, backing vocals), whose names are associated with various groups including Outrage AD, Damnus, Doll and Kintra.
The aforementioned introductory EP “Japetus” was always meant as a precursor to the eventual debut full-length album which was recorded at the same time and will be released through Hypnotic Dirge Records in early 2015.
