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!


This life I lead
Losing my way
Forever dawn
Forever grey
Can someone
Show me a way
Forever dawn
Left in the absence gone astray
Lonely face in the mirror
Staring back at me
Empty eyes in the mirage of decadence
Is this all a dream?
I can’t feel my tongue to speak
Is there anyone out there
To find the words to get through to you
Reach for the edge of empty space
Get through to you from the other side
We’re drifting apart
Tearing at the seams
Endlessly pacing
There is no other way
That I can hold onto our own
I left to wander
Searching for my truth
The questions I’m asking
Are signs of a semblance of vision of the end
Of the end
There is no fucking way i’ll hold onto my own
Desperation, to look for help from above
Will you find me
If I scream for you
Given the chance that I find
A truth on my own
Give me suffering
Give me death
Swallow my world in shame
At least I fought
At least I tried
Forgive me
Let me see
Give me a torch as a light for the dark
In sorrow
In death
The heralds sound
There is hope
There is strength
From my wings
I soar above the sky
As a shining beacon guides the war


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