Hypnotic Dirge Updates and News

PRE-ORDER: Nordicwinter - Desolation

Posted by Nick Skog on Friday, December 4, 2020 Under: Nordicwinter


Originally released on June 20, 2020, Nordicwinter’s “Desolation” followed the release of “Requiem” in April marking the project’s second full-length release in a span of 3 months after a 13 year gap between the debut album “Threnody” in 2007 and these two new records! The renewal of the Nordicwinter surely did not go unnoticed with “Requiem” and “Desolation” both receiving their fair share of praise, and while “Requiem” was released through Dark East Productions, “Desolation” was self-released and its limited first pressing has recently sold out so in addition to releasing the new Nordicwinter full-length later this winter, “Desolation” will see a re-issue through Hypnotic Dirge Records, released as a 6 panel digipack on January 15, 2020.

A chilling soundtrack for the dead of winter, Nordicwinter is a solo atmospheric/depressive black metal band from Quebec, Canada founded by evillair (Umbrarum Tenebrae,  Kalseroth, Graven Dusk). Laden with haunting melodies and cryptic vocals, Nordicwinter creates music that is crafted to obliterate all remnants of light and hope leaving only despair and death. This is high-caliber Depressive black metal with a cold and desolate atmosphere that retains a certain amount of bite and enough musical skill and variety to keep you invested, all the more compounded by painful shrieks that perfectly encapsulate the mood and blend seamlessly into the mix to enhance the melodic undertones of the music. If you are a fan of bands such as Xasthur, (early)Forgotten Tomb, Shining, Austere, NONE, and Nocturnal Depression, then Nordicwinter should be right up your alley as well.

The first 100 orders will receive a free woven patch of the “Desolation” emblem.
