Novembers Doom Recording New Album

On Friday January 16th, Novembers Doom will enter recording studio "Belle City Sound" to begin recording their 7th full length CD, to be titled "Into Night's Requiem Infernal." Tracking duties will be handled by Chris Djuricic (Engineer and Novembers Doom bassist), and the mixing of the disc by Dan Swano at Unisound. The band comments:

"We're using the same Recording / Mixing formula we've used on 'The Pale Haunt Departure' and 'The Novella Reservoir'. In our opinion, the combination of Djuricic and Swano creates the perfect sound for us, and we've received nothing but stellar reviews of sound quality from this combination in the past.

"Every band hypes their new material, and says it's the best they've done, and the hardest and the heaviest... You can judge that for yourself in time. What we can say is that this is the first time going into a recording the entire band feels confident and believes the material will please fans of the band, as well as turn many new heads in our direction. It's dark, aggressive, and melodic, and compliments the last three releases."

Novembers Doom Cancels 2009 North American Tour

Chicago death/doom metallers, Novembers Doom, have issued the following statement regarding dropping off the January tour with Rotting Christ and Epicurean:

"It is with much regret that we must announce our departure from the Rotting Christ tour in January, 2009. A serious medical issue arose with a member of the band, making us unable to tour during that time. While this unfortunately prevents us from participating in the tour, thankfully it has come to light now rather than at the last minute, leaving 3 months time for the promoter to find a suitable replacement for us. We wish the very best for Rotting Christ, and Epicurean, and hope their tour has great success!" More...

"What an amazing festival. I've never seen anything that operates so smoothly. This is easily a career highlight for us. We played to a solid crowd of thousands in early afternoon. Sensational all the way around, from the staff and crew, and the fans here are incredible. We might not come home! Our entire set was pro shot, and I've posted a song from the set on Youtube.

Novembers Doom Discuss New DVD

Chicago metallers, Novembers Doom, discuss their upcoming DVD in the following update:

"For a small underground metal band from Chicago, we have found ourselves in unreal situations and have met people across the world who believe in us, sometimes more then we do ourselves. Carl Grillet, owner of the metal store chain "Metal Zone" in Europe has become one of the best things to happen to us. Without his hard work, and belief in the band, we wouldn't have some of the opportunities we have had, so to us, Carl is a part of the ND family. Because of him, we were again given an opportunity to travel to Europe and tour. The original plan for this tour was 2 weeks, and the lineup would be Novembers Doom, Ajattara, Thurisaz, and Woods of Ypres. In my opinion, a stunning lineup."

"Then, we had the idea of finally shooting our live DVD we've talked about for years now. We thought about recording it here in Chicago, then considered Toronto, or New York. We wanted to perform in front of the best possible crowd for us. We chose to play where we actually feel the most at home... Vosselaar, Belgium." More...

Novembers Doom Vocalist Publishes Book Of Lyrics

Paul Kuhr, frontman for Chicago’s dark metal act NOVEMBERS DOOM, will be releasing a limited edition book of lyrics, titled The Wayfaring Chronicles (limited to 300 copies), to accompany the pre-order of their forthcoming album, The Novella Reservoir, out February 20th, 2007 on The End Records.

About the book of lyrics, Kuhr comments, “Having completed our 6th full length release, we have built a small, but solid group of fans, and for years in interviews, and through fan correspondence, the question of lyrics is always asked. After much thought, I decided to write a book, full of lyrical explanations of every song from all 6 of our CD's. The book is 84 pages, completely in full color, and is filled, not only with the lyrics, but photos from every era of the band, promo and live, many never before seen. I believe I've created something original, at least in this genre of metal, and it's a great insight to the bands lyrical content for the fans, and the curious alike. Lyrically, I've been praised, as well as criticized for my honesty, and now the absolute truth is spelled out, and will surely give the fans a much deeper look into Novembers Doom. I hope you enjoy it!”

To see large versions of the artwork from the book, go here: #1, #2 and #3.

The pre-order for the album/book is now available exclusively at The End Records’ mailorder site, The Omega. To pre-order, click here.
