Chicago dark metal act, NOVEMBERS DOOM, have commenced writing the follow-up album to the well-received, The Pale Haunt Departure, released earlier this year in March on The End Records.
Says lead singer Paul Kuhr about the forthcoming release:
“We are currently in the writing process of the new CD, and early plans are to begin recording in April 2006. The new material is a huge step forward in song writing, not only separating our sound from our peers, but digging deep into our roots of early Chicago death metal. Faster, heavier, and relentless. It will be quite difficult to label us in the ‘doom’ category after this release.”
In other band news, NOVEMBERS DOOM and KEEN OF THE CROW (featuring former members of MORGION) are confirmed for the Heathen Crusade Metalfest, set to take place Saturday, January 21, 2006 at Star Central in Columbia Heights, Minnesota.
Also scheduled to appear are Finland’s MOONSORROW, Ireland’s PRIMORDIAL,Sweden’s THYRFING, THE CHASM, TYPHUS and TODESBONDEN.
