RELEASE NEWS: Hypnotic Dirge Records to release second Norilsk album "Le passage des glaciers" on November 24, 2017

Deep, cold, and far away: Norilsk – the northernmost city, located in Siberia far above the arctic circle, evokes ideas of hardship, darkness, and doom. Despite its isolation, the name also brings images of nordic beauty, mystery, and a majestic reverence.

Capturing these contrasting notions into music, French-Canadian band Norilsk is back with a captivating new album, as thick and heavy as permafrost. Le passage des glaciers (The Passage of Glaciers) follows in the footsteps of 2015's album The Idea of North, but expands the sound considerably. From a sludgy slab of doom-death, the band has carved further into the icy influences of dark metal, to emerge with a blackened doom-death album tainted with frozen melodies, misty atmospheres, and reflective lyrical passages.

Death, like a magnetic North, is calling, and many are those who answer. It hypnotizes with its lullaby, carrying some into the distance, and leaving the others behind the furrow left by the passing of glaciers.

To be released on digipack format on November 24, 2017.
Recommended for fans of Paradise Lost, (old) Katatonia, Morgion, Ufomammut, and Pallbearer
