NOVEMBERS DOOM Release 10th Studio Album
Novembers Doom have released their tenth full-length album entitled Hamartia, out today via The End Records on digital, CD, and vinyl formats. Formed in 1989, this release marks the band’s 28th anniversary year, and is a sonic testament to their legacy as one of the earliest U.S. dark & doom metal bands still active today.
Considered by the band to be their best work to date, Harmartia‘s mastery is due in part to the synergy of its lineup, who constituted their previous album Bled White: Paul Kuhr (founder/vocalist), Larry Roberts (guitars), Vito Marchese (guitars), Mike Feldman (bass), and Garry Naples (drums).
Says Paul, “It’s always a challenge for a band to push themselves with each album they write and record, and after almost 28 years and 10 albums, that becomes more difficult to achieve. We always set out to write a better album, each time. At the end of the process, we have to be proud of the results, first and foremost, and we know in our own minds if we achieved our goal or not. With Hamartia, I believe we did. The overall sound and flow of this record is cohesive, and solid. I don’t believe there’s been a finished Novembers Doom album I have believed in more than Hamartia. I hope everyone agrees, and enjoys what we have created!”
Recorded at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI, this album sees production from long-time NovembersDoom producer Chris Djuricic (Jungle Rot, Malevolence), and Mix Master metal legend Dan Swano (Opeth, Dissection, Katatonia). The album also sees guest appearances from Ben Johnson on keyboards, Rhiannon Kuhr on backing vocals (“Ever After,” “Miasma,” “Zephyr”), Andrew Craighan (My Dying Bride) on guitar melody (“Waves In The Red Cloth”), Bernt Fjellestad (Susperia) on backing vocals (“Borderline”), and Dan Swanö on backing vocals (“Borderline”).
