PRE-ORDERS: Marche Funèbre - Einderlicht

August 7, 2020
We are launching pre-orders for Marche Funèbre' fourth full-length album "Einderlicht" today! Coincidentally, today is also Bandcamp Friday, meaning Bandcamp has waived all of their fees today, so it would be the perfect day to place an order in order to leave a bit more money for the band and label.

The Belgian quintet has built a steady reputation of making a unique blend of eclectic doom death metal, and their new album proves to be the pinnacle of their growth.

Entitled ‘Einderlicht’, which translates as the light at/of the end, the new album brings all the elements known from Marche Funèbre: death, black, and doom metal in a unique mix, with strong melodies and a wide vocal approach.
The "Einderlicht" CD, with enthralling artwork by Brooke Shaden is presented a 4 panel digipack with a 12 page booklet. Additionally, the digipack is 4/4 printed allowing for no unprinted areas between the inner panels. The official "Einderlicht" shirt, printed on Gildan Heavy Cotton by Cursed Earth Apparel is available in sizes Small through XXL and also features art by Brooke Shaden. 

Additional items in the bundle include an embroidered logo patch, size 6" x 2" (15cm x 5cm), a full-colour 4.75" x 2.75" (11cm x 7cm) sticker featuring the art from the shirt design, as a 3" (7.5 cm) circular magnet with Marche Funèbre's alternate logo. There is also an option to order Marche Funèbre's 2017 album "Into the Arms of Darkness" in one of the bundles for an additional $C10 (no extra shipping costs)

Great care and attention has gone into getting production rolling for these items so that we can mail these out to you immediately upon release date. Everything has either already arrived or is scheduled to arrive ahead of the release date so orders should be shipped out without delay!

For those who prefer digital, or would at least like to hear the full album before considering ordering physical merch, the digital version of the album is available on the HDR Bandcamp page for a token pre-order price. It will of course be available as a name-your-price download upon the release date. Other streaming options such as Youtube, Spotify, iTunes, etc will be available soon as well.

"Einderlicht" will be released on Friday September 25.

PRE-ORDERS: Ov Shadows - I Djävulens Avbild

July 18, 2020
We are launching pre-orders for Ov Shadows' second full-length album "I Djävulens Avbild" today!

This time around, we opted for less items in the bundles but improved the quality of the main items included. The CD is presented as a 4 panel digipack with an 8 page booklet, complete with 4/4 print (no unprinted sections between the panels) and 18pt cardboard stock rather than the standard 15pt, so the digipack itself should be sturdier and thicker. The official shirt for "I Djävulens Avbild" h...

Immediately, the music surrounds us with dense waves of tremolo’d riffing accompanied by enormous drum detonations and heavyweight bass pulsations. The music has a majestic but sorrowing resonance that immerses the senses, its wrenching gloom shredded by caustic shrieks and increasin...
