The third album from the enigmatic and anonymous entity NONE is now officially released!
"Damp Chill of Life" is available to order on the Hypnotic Dirge webshop, as well as exclusive hoodie and shirt bundles, and a discography pack..
The hoodie and shirt bundles come with a limited NONE patch and button, as well as some other unannounced extras which will be thrown into your pack!
These bundles will only be available for a limited time and once they are gone, they are gone. The "Damp Chill of Life" CD, which is once again released as a 6 panel digipack with panoramic photography taken by the anonymous band members is limited to 1000 copies for its first pressing.
If you prefer digital, the album is available on Bandcamp as a "Name-your-price" download, as well as streaming on Spotify, iTunes, Youtube, etc.
Like clockwork, NONE returns this spring to destroy your seasonal optimism with their oppressively bleak atmosphere. Following 2018’s epic “Life Has Gone On Long Enough”, “Damp Chill Of Life” is NONE's third full-length chapter in their arrestingly reclusive legacy.
Weaving visionary soundscapes with depressive black metal, “Damp Chill Of Life” will gnaw at your bones like dying alone in an ice-bound wilderness. Haunting piano keys and retching voices flicker through harsh walls of instruments, ebbing and flowing through the lengthy tracks as NONE take their time to pick apart your psyche.
"The bleakness, haunting and dreadful, is a euphonious swarm of distortion with glimpses of melancholic guitar and piano that formulate the most morose album I’ve heard this year. Each song blends seamlessly into the next, creating one extended sojourn through the dreadful black void that is all too familiar to some. A completely miserable album that is simple in its thoughts, it presents anguish in its rawest form. Shattered emotions that cling to your soul and relentlessly try to destroy you from within."
"Every aspect of this record is so well executed. From the instrumentation, to the icy atmospherics to the dissonant pained vocals to the overall great production, this record is a great one. Damp Chill of Life is a wicked record, one that grips you from beginning to end with the frigid hand of death. Each track is a haunting reverie that invites you to die alone among the shadows and the frost and you don’t have much choice but to abide. Damp Chill of Life is an excellently crafted record, one that grabs your attention and keeps you coming back for more and more. Not enough can be said regarding this record. The only thing left to say is that this will be quite simply one of the best depressive black metal and black metal releases in general this year."
"There are good releases and then there are those albums that crawl under your skin and make you crave for more. NONE has continuously delivered some of the most punishing and bleak Atmospheric/Depressive Black Metal releases since its inception and “Damp Chill of Life” is yet another brilliant addition to their discography. Filled with haunting atmospheric elements and just the right amount of heaviness, this release is one of the best in the genre for 2019, so don’t miss out."
