Presenting the latest Hypnotic Dirge Records free digital download compilation album!, "Subarctic Nocturnes: Doomed to Be [Volume 1]"

This year, we are releasing something more comprehensive than ever before, with a compilation trilogy series which will have a different genre focus on each volume and which we will release over the course of the next few months. We are extremely pleased to unveil the first album in this series now, with a focus on all things doom!

Within this volume, you will find a collection of amazing artists at the forefront of the global doom scene, both Hypnotic Dirge bands and guests from other bands around the world. The selections on this release were carefully chosen to show some of our favourite bands including doom veterans and newcomers alike. Melodic Death-Doom, Gothic Doom, and Sludge Doom can all be found within this compilation so it is quite diverse and hopefully shows a careful balance between all these sounds.

Thanks to all the bands and artists for participating!


Death comes smashing like a stone
Aching heart is now alone
In Nibelheim he haunts the halls
The crumbling church forever calls us home

Lilies sinking in a lake
The suns descent at daybreak
Shouting out to nothing in the dark

Piercing the clouds heals no pain
He’ll never see her face again
In Nibelheim he haunts the halls
Aching heart is now alone

We share our world with ghosts of old

Wingless birds that dare to fly
Toothless vampires bled dry
Shouting out to you in the dark
Ghosts direct the play we share
Spectres of the friends once there
Its memories of you I’m shackled to

Beyond this life I feel you waiting
On the other side longing for rest
Within this heart which beats for you
Is a love pure longing for rest


from Subarctic Nocturnes: Doomed to Be [Volume I - MMXV], released February 13, 2015
