Album notes:

Hypnotic Dirge is proud to present its first release of 2023, the glorious yet gloomy return of New Zealand/Australia's Orphans of Dusk. 

It has been ten years since the band’s inception in 2013, and nine since their last offering on Hypnotic Dirge Records. In 2014, Orphans of Dusk released “Revenant,” a brilliant 4-song EP that conjured the grandeur of goth and death-doom blackest of the black.  

Described as a talented successor to Type O Negative and Woods of Ypres, Orphans of Dusk demonstrates the ability to write memorable songs with powerful riffs, weaving heaviness and beauty into a lush gothic atmosphere. 

This Winter, Orphans of Dusk opens their goth-doom gasket again, coming back to life to present “Spleen,” their haunting new album. Spreading its vice over 8 songs, “Spleen’s full length duration enables the band, over the course of 50 minutes, to bring listeners further into their sublime dark universe, pushing further all facets that gave its identity in the first place. “Spleen” picks up where “Revenant” left, immediately displaying a well produced record and melodies that will immediately find its place in many gothic and doom music libraries. On “Spleen,” Orphans of Dusk however chooses to focus less on the previous atmospheric death-doom elements, and more on the gothic vocals and guitar harmonies. As a result, “Spleen” hits like a stake through the heart – it is the band’s most mature offering to date, and one that should gather the world’s gothic-doom scene’s attention. 

Recommended for fans of Type O Negative, Woods of Ypres, Unto Others, Helevorn, A Pale Horse Named Death, and My Dying Bride.
