Novembers Doom To Film New Video For "Rain"

Chicago's NOVEMBERS DOOM will film a video for the song "Rain", taken from the band's latest CD, "The Novella Reservoir", on Sunday, March 9.

Commented singer Paul Kuhr: "This is something we have been talking about doing since recording the CD, and we finally have things ready to do so. We have chosen a specific style and look to this video, which should should be visually interesting to watch. We'll make this available to see on the web soon after editing is complete, and it will also be included on the upcoming DVD 'The Novella Vosselaar: Live in Belgium' later in the year."

NOVEMBERS DOOM has confirmed its appearance at this year's Graspop Metal Meeting on June 27-29, 2008 at De Boeretand in Dessel, Belgium.

Said Kuhr: "This is an absolute honor to be invited to perform, as this is one of the largest music festivals in Europe (quite possibly the world.) Last year's attendance was just over 120,000 people. The opportunity for us is simply amazing, and we're looking forward to playing in Belgium once again, being a part of this stunning lineup!"

In other news, The End Records will reissue two of the earlier albums from the band this spring, both with new artwork, remastered and with bonus tracks. The LPs being reissued are: the 1995 debut "Amid its Hallowed Mirth" and 1999's sophomore effort "Of Sculptured Ivy and Stone Flowers". Also scheduled for release in 2008 is the reissue of 2000's "The Knowing".

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...

Kyle Thomas briefly fronted TROUBLE in 1999 and is "a welcome addition to the 'Run' album," says Olson. "All of my guests are very talented musicians that I'm psyched to work with, especially my new friends from the UK, RISE TO ADDICTION [who toured with TROUBLE in Europe earlier this year]. These guys are hard-working and extremely talented group of guys, as [is] my new permanent guitarist, Mike 'Redbeard' Schermuly from Portland, Maine."

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.

Novembers Doom Post New Song Online

Commented singer Paul Kuhr: The only way to describe 'The Novella Reservoir' is natural progression. With each CD we release, we evolve in style. This time, we took a step forward in speed and aggression, while maintaining the same sound we've had over all six CDs. 'The Pale Haunt Departure' was so well received, we knew writing the follow up would be a challenge, and I feel we've successfully created a worthy release." More...

Novembers Doom Seek Bassist

Novembers Doom post an update on their myspace regarding a search for a permanate bassist:

"Having used temporary bass players for years, we have now decided with the recording of the next CD, and a great deal of promotion that will follow it's release, it's time to fill the bass position with a permanent member. We're looking for not only a talented bassist, but a person whose schedule will allow for travel, and the ability to rearrange their personal life for the band, at times. The position requires a certain amount of sacrifice and dedication, with the biggest reward of playing the music you enjoy, and not for financial gain.

If you're interested, message us, or pass this info along to someone you think might be! We'll go over more details then.

Novembers Doom Schedule to Record Next Album

NOVEMBERS DOOM post the following messege on their myspace blog:

"NOVEMBERS DOOM are scheduled to begin recording the follow-up to 2005's "The Pale Haunt Departure" on June 16. Once again, the production team will consist of Chris Djuricic for tracking and Dan Swan to mix the final recording. Mastering will again be handled by James Murphy.

In a statement about the upcoming studio work, the band says, "Consistency and quality are very important to us, to insure that anyone who was a fan of the previous CD, will once again be able to comfortably expect nothing less then a stellar production. Chris Djuricic, Dan Swan and James Murphy were the perfect choice for 'The Pale Haunt Departure' and the perfect compliment to NOVEMBERS DOOM. We're honored to be working with them once again.

"Working hard on the new material, we've reached the final stage of pre-production, creating well rounded, and a natural progression of songs, which continue where 'The Pale Haunt Departure' ends. Always adding new elements to our sound, there will be a few surprises mixed in, but remaining true to the band you expect.""
