Novembers Doom - _Of Sculptured Ivy and Stone Flowers_
(Martyr Music, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (
With the walls of My Dying Bride crumbling at an alarming rate (a new member leaves every month -- what gives?), solid gothic-laced / death metal / doom ensemble Novembers Doom picks up the slack of its notable idol and so eloquently carries the torch with conviction and passion. Beneath the powerful pounds of doom sonic overcharges rests a shining hope of collective ideals and brilliance. Novembers Doom captures a world of doom that has yet to be explored. It's groundbreaking and versatile at the same time. Take to heart the state of metal music, and forget all as the music of this band captivates your mind and soul. Piece by piece, Novembers Doom's architecture helps create a perfect foundation for the band to work from. Much stronger than their debut mCD, the self-released _For Every Leaf That Falls_, this release is a wonderful array of musicianship that helps etch their work into a wholesome format. Once again, I bow to Novembers Doom.
