Editorial Reviews

A real masterpiece of dark doom atmospheric metal, with great production. Ultimate Metal an essential release for those of us who enjoy intelligently written, layered, epic metal it reeks of the passion and creativity involved in its creation and deserves to be lauded by the metal community. Abrasive rock fans of Opeth, Paradise Lost, Katatonia and the like should not pass this up. Fans of melody, fierce avidity, and mournful hymns will also want to add this to their collection. Sea Of Tranquility This is some seriously gothic and progressive extreme metal, doomy and depressing yes, but expertly played and executed. Zero Mag

If you are into the deep, wicked underground chambers of death, black, and doom metal, this is the album for you.
J. Tourettes
A very highly recommended purchase for everybody who enjoys Opeth, Burst, My Dying Bride, Neurosis, Pelican, Enslaved, and the like.

DintheIM incorporates every aspect I've come to love about this band, sheer brutality, clean and death vocals, meaningful lyrics.

Novembers Doom have big upped themselves in terms of sheer quality. The production is top notch, and theyve really cranked up the intensity of their "Doom Metal." Honestly, this particular disc leaves the aforementioned genre but they have sort of created a subgenre with The Novella Reservoir.

One of the best aspects of Novembers Doom, and always has been, is Paul Kuhr. Discernable death vocals are the best variety because death vocals that you cant understand 24-7 gets old after a while. Thats why I find bands like Novembers Doom, Amon Amarth, and Randy "Corpsegrinder's" Paths of Possession so refreshing. Not only can you understand EVERY SINGLE WORD he growls, but his baritone doom clean vocals are haunting yet beautiful.

Top songs on here have to be Drown in the Inland Mere, Twilight Innocence, and Dominate the Human Strain. DintheIM incorporates every aspect I've come to love about this band, sheer brutality, clean and death vocals, meaningful lyrics. Twilight Innocence is one of the most amazing slow paced yet uplifting pieces from any band from any genre. Dominate the Human Strain is brutal as hell, never really loosening that strangle hold from start to finish and the lyrics in this song are particularly critical of some things as well.

Get this disc, as soon as possible. It's definately in the running for my top release of the year!

Novembers Doom created what I though was their masterpiece in "The Pale Haunt Departure." They've upped the anty. "Novella Reservoir" is a crushing, at times brutal, yet deceptively beautiful brick of death/doom metal. Vocalist Paul Kuhr sounds sincere and convincing with his discernible "growl" The 2 ballads "Twilight Innocence" and "Leaving this" are performed with great passion and superb guitar playing. The first few bars of the opener "Rain" will get you ready for the inevitable onslaught of tremendous metal riffing. The drumming is also performed perfectly, excellent fills and double-bassing. The riffs, oh man the riffs just bone-jarring and pounding. Novembers Doom have sped up their song arrangements and this decision is awesome. Novembers Doom and Solitude Aeturnus are imo, the 2 bands at the top of the Doom Metal mountain. Don't think twice, get this NOW!!

YES! is all I can truly say on this album. I was completely into Death Metal/Doom Metal, what ever descriptor you want to throw at it, during the late 80's through the early 90's. I lost interest when nothing came about that grabbed me like Novembers Doom has. I have been a deep resound lover of the stage that the guitar and vocals can produce when they are well matched. No disrespect to this band, but the lyrics are decent. Again, the notes are all I hear. For the past few years I've been picking up 'Rock' band albums that seem to get the music, but the vocals are...eh. I started downloading the free MP3's here and found November's Doom. The first band to make the home stereo THUMP! I'll confess, I turned away from the 'Growl' Doom Rock when it started taking over the DM scene. But the vocalist in Novembers Doom creates the perfect deepest growl that makes you want more. It's not the same monotone growl that I tried to get into during the 90's. The man f'n SCROWLS the music into your bones. To top it off, the band has been around for some time and I, the ignorant f'r that I am, somehow missed them. Now, the item I must note on here is the incredible musicianship that goes behind the voice. Not only do they bring the new tones to the music, but they hold a touch of the old classic Death Metal in their style. Well, I don't know if I've rambled enough, because I can't begin to tell you the addictiveness that you will run into once you kick on this album through a stereo that has plenty of bass. Be warned...your house will shake and the neighbors will call.

Novembers Doom seem determined to slay the beast they rode in on. They devoted their first four albums (and the better part of a decade) to churning out classic doom/death metal. But on their fifth full-length, 2005's "The Pale Haunt Departure," this Chicago, Illinois-based quintet adopted a much more straightforward death metal sound. And now, on that album's follow-up, Novembers Doom have distanced themselves even further from the genre that birthed them (and that takes up half of the band's name). 2007's "The Novella Reservoir" is a very original, expansive, and masterful shape-shifting mix of musical styles. Crowbar-esque doom metal is definitely still an integral part of the band's sound, but this record also fuses in strong melodic death metal, traditional American death metal, gothic metal, and progressive rock influences, and even maintains a healthy dose of symphonic black metal for good measure. The result is a very epic and excellent extreme metal release with a wealth of delicious breadth, depth, texture, brutality, beauty, tense dynamics, different dimensions, interesting nooks, crannies, and nuances, entrancing soundscapes, and eminently memorable and contagious songs.

ND clearly enjoy having a little fun with their fans by teasing them with a throw-off track every now and then. Case in point: opener "Rain," which will send many listeners (including most longtime fans) for a loop right away, and is a forceful, angry, midtempo song bolstered by a crunching, grinding wall of noise (made up of a simplistic, downtuned, chugging riff, a harsh, abrasive guitar tone, and hefty double bass drumming), and deep, angry, frog-throated vocals from frontman Paul Kuhr. Needless to say, "Rain" would have been a perfect fit on the last Six Feet Under album!
