HAIL SPIRIT NOIR was founded in the dawn of 2010. Towards the end of 2011, the band joined forces with Code666/Aural music for a worldwide release of the debut album ‘Pneuma’ in the spring of 2012. The album was warmly received both by listeners and critics and thus the band soldiered on satisfied with their experiment’s success.
Come 2013, the trio gathered once more to review ideas and begin composing for their sophomore effort. While maintaining the distinct ‘retro yet modern’ style of their debut, they tried to take things even further creating a sound once again all their own. Once again mastered by Jens Bogren, the result was the band’s second album, ‘Oi Magoi’, a psychoprog black metal album of trippy melodies and satyric ecstasy.
2,5 years since their last album, HAIL SPIRIT NOIR is back with their third opus, the intriguingly-titled “Mayhem In Blue”, including 6 tracks. The band’s signature sound is present in all its weird black glory, this time exploring their more aggressive side without sacrificing any of their psychedelic melodies; if anything they are more enticing and trippy than ever. Featuring the mixing talents of Dimitris Douvras (ROTTING CHRIST etc) and Alan Douches’ (CHELSEA WOLFE, MOTORHEAD etc) exceptional mastering abilities, the result is an album that elevates their psychoprog black metal sound to new levels.
