UPCOMING RELEASE: stroszek - about all the bad days in the world

Posted by Hypnotic Dirge Records on Friday, September 29, 2023 Under: stroszek
After a lengthy period of silence, stroszek returns this winter with their new album about all the bad days in the world. Formed in 2007 by Claudio Alcara, the guitarist and founder of Frostmoon Eclipse, one of Italy’s original, and longest serving black metal bands, 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.

Comments alcara “I wouldn’t call stroszek a ‘side project’ as such, it’s really just my material; something that has been inside me for a long time. A friend asked me to define the style, and when I couldn’t she described it as ‘long drives along deserted highways with just your own thoughts for company’. she nailed the feel exactly”. 

In addition to the new album about all the bad days in the world, Hypnotic Dirge will also re-pressing the long sold out 2012 album sound graveyard bound, both of which will be available on December 1, 2023. Pre-orders will become available in October.

The track Awkward from the upcoming album is now streaming on the Hypnotic Dirge Youtube Channel.
