NOVEMBERS DOOM Recording New Album; 'The Knowing' Reissue Announced

Chicago dark metallers NOVEMBERS DOOM have entered Belle City Sound in Racine, Wisconsin with longtime collaborator Chris Wisco to begin recording their eighth album, "Aphotic", for a spring release on The End Records. The CD will once again be mixed by Swedish producer/multi-instrumentalist Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH, NIGHTINGALE).

Commented frontman Paul Kuhr, "We plan to capture something new from the band. This recording builds upon the foundations the band has laid over the years, but we are taking it into a new direction. We plan to redefine where we stand in our current genre. The darkness is coming, and we can't wait until you're able to hear it."

Throughout the recording process, NOVEMBERS DOOM will be uploading videos and studio reports to the band's official YouTube channel. Clips of new material as well as band member updates will be available.

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the release of "The Knowing", The End Records will reissue this long-out-of-print album, one of the most sought-after in the NOVEMBERS DOOM catalog. The two-disc set will include a completely remixed and remastered version of "The Knowing", featuring new versions of "In Faith" and "Silent Tomorrow", to be available as originally intended. The set will also include the original 2000 pressing, unaltered. An expanded 24-page booklet accompanies this reissue with original photography by Tony Myles of Cage XXI.

Kuhr explains, "Being able to revisit these recordings in a studio setting also allowed us to fix a few mistakes which have stood out in our ears for 10 years. We realize many people are fond of the original recording and hate when bands 'fix' old material, so for the fans of the original, we're including the original release as a bonus disc."
