Hypnotic Dirge News and Updates
A couple of weeks ago, we announced Omgeving, the latest project to join our ranks for an album release later this year! Omgeving is an entirely instrumental project that blends elements of black metal, doom, drone, and ambient to create auditory landscapes that leads you on a journey through inner and outer space. And now today, No Clean Singing is hosting the premiere of the first-ever song to be released from the project.
You can stream “VII - Stille vernietiging” (translating to "Silent Destruction" in Dutch) on NCS and read what they had to say about the track.
From the article:
The quavering tones that begin the song (and reappear later, and again at the end) are strange but alluring, ghostly and mesmerizing. They’re joined by the low pensive hum of the bass, and then the music transports the listener to a different place. The vibrant, glowing sheen of tremolo chords and a slow drum rhythm, layered with gleaming filaments of melody, seem to open the mind to a vista of stars, or perhaps the shimmering cascade of the aurora borealis.
A silence falls, and those eerie quavering vibrations return, but when the wash of immersive sound swells again, there’s an aura of tension and turmoil in the music, and the rapid pulse of the bass drum and bass guitar lead to a flurry of blast-beats. The tremolo chords begin to resemble a haunting wail, as if massed phantasms are expressing loss and confusion. When these expressions of what might be torment subside, the song works its way toward a beautiful but moody and mystifying conclusion.
“Wijde Wijdte” will be released on digipack format through Hypnotic Dirge Records on December 6, 2018. Pre-orders will be available soon.
