This album will appeal to fans of black metal in general, but also to those who have been following Hypnotic Dirge Records since its very first inception. The label is proud to add Maeskyyrn’s Interlude to a long tradition that also includes classic black metal albums from bands like Silent Path, Neige et Noirceur, Funeral Fornication, and Obsidian Tongue.
“Interlude” is presented in a 6-panel digipack with an accompanying 8-page booklet featuring the album’s lyrics and artwork from Bharaduur and Luciana Nedelea.
“Maeskyyrn really impressed me with Interlude. Even more so because it’s a debut. The use of melody and space, as well as the sparing use of clean background vocals, on the record show a level of maturity and songcraft that I associate with bands who are on maybe their third record and starting to explore a more expansive sound, tempering some of the aggression they poured into that debut. Make no mistake, the fury and despair is there in spades on Interlude but, as Maeskyyrn intimate, maybe there is a hint of enlightenment on show too.”
