In conjunction with the new split album with Eye of Solitude, Hypnotic Dirge Records is proud to be re-releasing Marche Funèbre's magnus opus Into the Arms of Darkness, on February 22. Originally co-released almost one year to the day on BadMoodMan Music, Moscow Funeral League and Frozen Light, the album received praise among the doom metal scene for its mature songwriting and fine balance of traditional doom and doom-death elements, making it Marche Funèbre's best album to date, and a must-have within the genre. After selling out, Into the Arms of Darkness will see a noble second edition on 4-panel digipack, expanded with bonus track "Lost," from the same writing session and previously only available as a 7" self-released in 2015. The album will be co-released with Moscow Funeral League and Frozen Light, and Hypnotic Dirge Records will have a limited number of 100 copies.
