Novembers Doom are Streaming Their New Album Hamartia In Full
Novembers Doom will release their new album Hamartia this Friday, the 10th studio full-length by the prolific doom metallers.
We’ve been talking about this release for some time now, with an interesting lyric video for “Zephyr” being released almost a month ago, but now you can enjoy the album in full from the comfort of your own computer.
I’m in the process of listening to it as I write this so I have yet to form an opinion about the album in its entirety, but the opening tracks have been awesome! It’s all pretty standard for Novembers Doom, so if you’re a fan of the band’s extensive catalog then you know what to expect (but that’s not a bad thing). When a band can write material as consistently as these guys do I think it’s pretty fair to say they’re doing things right.
Paul Kuhr, the band’s long-time vocalist, had this to say about Hamartia:
“It’s always a challenge for a band to push them selves 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 Hamarita, 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 Hamarita. I hope everyone agrees, and enjoys what we have created!”
Paul, I’m enjoying the shit out of this so far. Mission accomplished!
