Hypnotic Dirge Updates and News

UPDATE: Hypnotic Dirge North American Store is now open!

January 20, 2023
The Hypnotic Dirge North American store is finally open again! Very relieved and excited to be sharing this news today after a lengthy hiatus! Although only the North American store is open for the moment, we are accepting international orders like always so there is no change there! 

At some point this Spring, a EU store will open as well but a lot of the HDR stock that was shipped from Canada to Portugal is still stuck in customs and there are still a lot of logistics to take care of so that is probably at least 2 months away. In the meantime, you can order as before from either the official webshop or from Bandcamp!

If there are any items that are sold out that you're interested in, please let us know via email or social media comment and if there seems to be enough demand, we will consider re-presses in the coming months - this goes for vinyl, CD's, and merch items.

Finally, this is just the first step of HDR's return. Keep an eye out on the official website and social media next week for announcements about our upcoming releases!

Order CD 
Order Bundles
Digital [Name-your-price]

Combining assertive (post) black metal with a powerful and solid, at times almost death metal sound, its music comes as a massive flow of energy, consisting of a flurry of drums, multi-layered guitar canvases, piercing melodies and expressive vocals, rusty and ominous like an apocalyptic sermon.

While at the core the band's music is based on moder...
