PRE-ORDERS: stroszek - about all the bad days in the world

Posted by Hypnotic Dirge Records on Friday, October 27, 2023 Under: stroszek
Named after the Werner Herzog movie by the same name, last seen by Joy Division’s leader Ian Curtis before committing suicide, stroszek was formed by Frostmoon Eclipse guitarist Claudio Alcara in 2006.

Aiming to go in a country\folk direction after years in the extreme metal world, stroszek could be described as “richly melodic, hauntingly melancholic, and at times, a crushingly sad commentary on innermost thoughts and life experiences”, or ‘long drives along deserted highways with just your own thoughts for company’

After a lengthy period of silence, stroszek returns this winter with their new album about all the bad days in the world.
stroszek is a project bringing forth various elements of dark neo-folk, goth rock, and western music blending together seemingly irreconcilable sounds to craft something that is all about feeling and introspection. Contemplation, melancholy, and stories about life are at the forefront of the vibe in stroszek's music.

Featuring an appearance from Henri Koivula of Shape of Despair
