On May 13, Hypnotic Dirge Records will release a brand new doom-death offering from Norilsk, entitled Beyond the Mountains. Released on the tipping point at the end of the world, this new EP speaks to the fragile overlap between the nostalgic old world and a dark new chapter in history. It will include a brand new song, “Beyond the Horizon,” along with a cover of Officium Triste’s “Intro Officium Triste (Pt II / Mountains of Depressiveness.” The artwork by Timur Khabirov is a tribut...

MUSIC VIDEO : Norilsk - “Weepers of the Land”!

Posted by Nick Skog on Tuesday, December 4, 2018, In : Norilsk 
Funeral rites and its iconography have a long history of weepers, or weeping figures – sad, heavy characters mourning the deceased. “Weepers of the Land” is a nod to the expression 'keepers of the land,' most often used in an indigenous and/or environment-related context, while referencing a less glorious side of history. The title song and concept is about what stays behind after someone vanishes.

The song was co-written with Joshua Cayer (Longhouse – bass/vocals), who is also guest v...

PRE-ORDERS: Norilsk - Weepers of the Land; Trails of Doom Norilsk Pack

Posted by Nick Skog on Friday, September 28, 2018, In : Norilsk 
We are now accepting pre-orders for the new Norilsk's mini-album, entitled “Weepers of the Land”, which will be released worldwide by Hypnotic Dirge Records on October 12, 2018.

Norilsk’s new opus should be viewed as a companion to last fall’s “Le passage des glaciers” as the material was written and recorded during the same time period, but with that being said there is a different feeling - seemingly of a more abrasive and desperate nature - conjured on this album’s material.

VIDEO RELEASE: Norilsk releases music video “The Way”, off their forthcoming album

Posted by Nick Skog on Monday, September 17, 2018, In : Norilsk 
On October 12, doom-death entity Norilsk is set to release a brand new offering; an omen that autumn will be tuned down to doom and the bitter cold. Weepers of the Land is the follow up mini-album to last year's full length Le passage des glaciers, presenting a more abrasive and visceral Norilsk weaving stories of heritage, loss, and displacement through dynamic and atmospheric blackened death-doom metal. Weepers of the Land will be Norilsk’s third installment on Hypnotic Dirge Records.

It retains the band's signature sound developed on its two full-length albums, and brings forward further openness to an array of doom-related influences.
