NOVEMBERS DOOM To Release “Bled White” In JulyThursday, 1st May 2014
Cited as one of the earliest death/doom metal bands to come out of the US, Chicago’s NOVEMBERS DOOM will release their ninth studio album titled – Bled White on July 15, 2014 via The End Records.
The follow up to the group’s critically acclaimed full-length Apothic (2011), an album that received some of the band’s strongest reviews and fan responses since their inception, was recorded at Belle City Sound with engineer Chris Wisco (JUNGLE ROT, NACHTMYSTIUM) handling recording and co-production duties with Dan Swano (BLOODBATH) spearheading the mixing for all eleven tracks on Bled White.
Says vocalist Paul Kuhr: “Every time a band writes and records a new album, they always say things like “This is our best yet!” and it usually isn’t. Is this our best yet? I’ll let you decide that, since opinions are all objective. What I will say is this… We approached Bled White differently than the past. We put a lot more focus on vocal melodies and harmonies this time around, creating a new soundscape for NOVEMBERS’DOOM. The music is punishing at times with my heaviest growls to date, and others will take you to a new place entirely for us exploring new ground. It’s very different at times, but it remains Novembers Doom. I won’t say it’s our best, but I’ll tell you it’s the one I’m most proud of… OK. It’s our best yet.”
Ever since their humble beginnings in 1989, the band has striven to create their own unique brand of dark, brooding and melancholic metal music. Constantly evolving and pushing the restrictions of minor genre tags, NOVEMBERS’DOOM has created a unique and identifiable sound, making their mark in the metal world.
Consisting of founder vocalist/lyricist Paul Kuhr, Larry Roberts (guitars), Vito Marchese (guitars), Mike Feldman (bass), and Garry Naples (drums), NOVEMBERS’DOOM has garnered international success by performing with bands such as Agalloch, Saturnus, Ajattara, and Nightingale, as well as performing high profile festival dates at Brutal Assault, Graspop Metal Meeting, Chaos Emergente’ and other festivals throughout western Europe.
The band plans to tour the US and Europe in 2014 in support of their new studio release.
