UPCOMING RELEASE: Orphans of Dusk - Spleen

Posted by Nick Skog on Friday, January 27, 2023 Under: Orphans of Dusk
Hypnotic Dirge is proud to present its first release of 2023, the glorious yet gloomy return of New Zealand/Australia 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 full length album. “Spleen” picks up where “Revenant” left, with a well produced record and a greater focus on dark hooks, carried by excellent 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.
