Based out of the French city Lille, Verlies is an avant-garde Black Metal band playing dark, strange, and experimental music. Without restrictions of conventional song structure, Verlies is all about creating dark and claustrophobic music with a strong emphasis on atmosphere. Ranging from piercing and uncompromising Black Metal, to experimental jazz melodies, to post-rock sensibilities, and everything in between, the music is raw, bold, and truly exceptional. Songs change pace and vibe frequently through their lengthy playing time, using many different techniques and methods to tell their story. Vocally, founding member N. mixes ferocious and tortured screams with enchanting and morose clean vocals that truly draw you in providing some uplifting moments alongside the raw hatred and despondency. Verlies’ debut album “Le Domaine des Hommes” is full of surprises but remains raw and never leaves the Black Metal vibe too far behind, instead using it as a base for their other sounds to draw from. Many bands these days try their hand at an unconventional approach to the Black Metal sound but only a few can pull it off genuinely and Verlies is one of those bands. Too often, the term “Black Metal Art” is thrown out haphazardly, but we humbly believe that it fits in this case!
Headed by founding member N., the project of Verlies started as a one-man project, but now has a full live lineup to spread their unconventional hatred throughout Northern France. Their debut album “Le Domaine des Hommes” was previously released digitally through their Bandcamp page, but now the album will get an official release in a noble and carefully designed 4 panel digipack, including a 12 page booklet and a bonus sticker while supplies last. The first cooperative release by Hypnotic Dirge Records and Throats Productions!

CO-RELEASE WITH THROATS PRODUCTIONS ALBUM REVIEWS
"Mostly a one-man act (save for some guest studio performances) this full-length comes out of nowhere and creates one of the better atmospheric/progressive black metal records in some time. ... I can safely say this album was a major surprise. Not being familiar with the project before this, I was impressed from the first listen, and it grew on me more and more with each repeated spin. For fans of black metal, both traditional and with more of a progressive flair, this is an album that should be paid attention to. An incredible debut, and one that shows unlimited promise for the future of this act. The Metal Observer
"The atmosphere switches between menacing and melancholy, and never does anything feel forced or contrived. Verlies moves between a number of strange bedfellows, but everything clicks. There’s a rawness and emotive quality to the album, where you aren’t sure where it’s going to take you next but you want to be along for the ride. This is an album that is more than the sum of its influences and parts."-Dead Rheteric
"That’s one thing that definitely sticks out about this album: the songs never feel as though they’ve stagnated. The sense of progression is always there, and that’s not something one often gets with atmospheric black metal. Be the current sound of the album a ferocious black metal riff with screamed vocals, or an echoing arpeggiation with the vocalist’s deep, clean voice, the album always feels as if it’s on the move to the next crescendo or valley of ambience."-Heavy Blog is Heavy
