Novembers Doom keep chugging along, far past the point where I would have expected them to fade away. This is, believe it or not, their 11th studio album in a career that stretches back to 1992. Coming up on 30 years in business, I suppose we should not expect any real surprises, and we don't get any.
If you have heard any Novembers Doom album for the past decade, then you already know what this sounds like. Novembers Doom are in a groove and they ain't leaving it. The riffs are pretty good, the production lacks punch, and the clean singing, while pretty good, is overused. The problem is that none of these songs really catch hold, and they all sound so similar to one another as well as to older Novembers Doom songs on better albums. It's all good enough while it's on, but once the album is done you won't remember any of it.
