Another Free Rock Compilation With Video's

Original Release Date: January 17, 2011
Label: Metalhit.com
Copyright: (c) 2011 Hypnotic Dirge Records
Total Length: 1:31:30

The 2010 edition of the annual Hypnotic Dirge Records compilation series is being released to commemorate two years of activity as a record label. Once again we are offering this album as a free download to showcase a unique and diverse group of black metal artists from a variety of different sub-genres. This year's edition has been named "Melancholic Epiphony (The Trance Formation is Shattered) Within the album, you will find a total of 11 tracks - 8 of which are from Hypnotic Dirge Records roster artists, offering a glimpse into past HDR releases, as well as a look towards some future HDR material. Asides from that, we are also featuring three diverse and respected guest artists on this compilation album - Funeral in Heaven, Njiqahdda, and Autaric. Also as a bonus on this year's compilation, we are also including some music videos as well, including the premiere of netra's first-ever music video for the track 'La Page' , the premiere of Old Forgotten Lands' 'Hour of the Wolf' video, and an exclusive video premiere from the mighty Njiqahdda.

As an addendum to the audio and video portions of this release, there is also three essays/short stories to accompany the album focusing on a variety of different topics both fiction, and non-fiction, as well as a complete 8 page booklet focusing on the larger theme of this compilation. Our desire was to release a compilation album that truly covered 4 different aspects of art: Audio, Video, Text, and Visual and we are pleased to showcase the works of a variety of different artists!

Over the past year, Hypnotic Dirge Records has evolved to become a more metal-based record label with less ambient artists on its roster, and more metal-based releases on the way. (see: netra, The Foetal Mind, Funeral Fornication, Neige et Noirceur, etc.) and this compilation is also an indication on the evolution of HDR. Of course, we will still be releasing ambient music as well, and most of our artists have an ambient edge to their music, but this compilation is a good example of the balance we strive to meet musically.

I would like to thank all of the contributors to this year's compilation for their dedication to this project, Marc Hoyland for his many hours of work on this compilation's artwork, and being able to transform my ideas for the theme of this record into perfectly constructed artwork. Asides from that, I'd also like to thank labels, promoters, reviewers, and fans for obvious reasons.

Eleven tracks from a diverse group of black metal artists - some of which are exclusive to the compilation, and some of which provide a preview towards future releases. Three brand new video premieres among a collection of videos, three unique and distinct text pieces/essays and a complete 8 page digital booklet featuring notes and insight into the songs from most of the artists themselves. And it's free!

Hey guys,
Nick Skog here from Hypnotic Dirge Records. Sorry for entering the conversation here, but I check google every couple of days and do a search for HDR and see what has been posted recently about the label and I noticed this topic on this website.

Just wanted to stop in and say thanks for downloading the compilation.
Also besides downloading on Amazon which is only for USA customers with accounts on there, the compilation is also available for free download on the Hypnotic Dirge Records website itself.
Obviously anyone in the world can download it and there's no account required.
hypnoticdirgerecords.com/dow…php

Also, I have a downloads section on the website too in which there are currently 19 albums available for free download from various artists on my label and also a few outside "guest" artists.
If you like what you hear on the compilation, you may also want to check out some more free downloads here: hypnoticdirgerecords.com/dow…php

I think I'll just leave it at that. I don't want to post a much of links and come off like I'm trying to "promote" the label or anything even though I want the music to be heard obviously.
However, I'll check back on this thread and will definitely answer any questions if there are any!

-Nick
