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.

lyrics

I hide my body away from the day
Flesh and bone scattered on the frozen wind
Desperate to hold every piece in place
As the sunlight consumes me

Awoken by a voice
Scraping at my skin
A storm of hunger and ecstasy
Awaiting the nights cold embrace
The moon hangs silent, shrouded in mist
Carrier of pestilence, harbinger of dread
I arrive in a haze of bloody delirium
I am the plague that haunts the darkness

Into the vastness of the abyss
Free from the weight of your suffering
Swallowed up by my hatred and the blood-stained earth
The silence is broken
Crawl out from the void
That has stripped you of your faith
Your god has abandoned you, my child
In blackness, forever
Never again
Never again to feel the sun
Cursed to exist in isolation
A deathless disgrace
Within your loathsome tomb
In the throes of solitude
Withered from famine
This night, gods children will suffer

She lay still
Naked in death, for all to behold
When all hope disappears
The light won't find her here

Awoken by a voice
Scraping at my skin
A storm of hunger and ecstasy
Awaiting the nights cold embrace
The moon hangs silent, Shrouded in mist
Carrier of pestilence, harbinger of dread
I arrive in a haze of bloody delirium
I am the plague that haunts the darkness
