Norilsk - New Song Streaming

Canadian doom/death band Norilsk is set to release their latest slab of music on November 24th via Hypnotic Dirge Records. The new album, Le Passage Des Glaciers, has been written around the theme of mourning and departure and features artwork by Sam Ford, who was also responsible for the band's previous release, The Idea Of North. The track "Namolennye" is now available below.

Bassist/vocalist Nicolas Miquelon says: "There is a slightly more intricate approach to this album, from a song structure to a stylistic point of view, as exemplified in 'Namolennye'. This song was composed on an 8-strings bass guitar, which brings a non-conventional colour, and allows different kind of arrangements than on the previous album. As for the song title, this unique Russian word ('намоленная'), roughly meaning 'imbued with prayers' and most often applied in the context of religious icons, happened to be surprisingly convenient to illustrate the notion of estrangement and an alternate state of reality. The song ends with a quote from Pushkin, translated in French, about dying where you feel you belong."
