Novembers Doom Debut New Zealand Shows Announced

Novembers Doom Debut New Zealand Shows Announced

C.C. / Friday 6th March, 2020 11:34AM

If 2020's news cycle keeps up its apocalyptic pace, US titans Novembers Doom may end up sporting the most accurate band name in the history of heavy metal. Hitting Aotearoa for two headline events in Auckland and Wellington this winter, the veteran group will bring more than three decades of pulse-pounding death-doom riffage our way, having joined forces all the way back in 1989 – with eleven studio albums under their belt thus far including 2019's dark metal epic Nephilim Grove. November's Doom will be supported for their debut New Zealand shows by Australian / Japanese progressive doom virtuosos Enough to Escape, grip the details right here...

UPDATE 16/03/20: Novembers Doom have postponed their July Aotearoa shows and shared the following statement...

"Novembers Doom's tour has been unfortunately postponed until further notice due to concerns about the coronavirus among other unforeseen circumstances. We are trying our hardest to rebook these dates in the near future! Inquire about refunds at your point of purchase - we are doing our best with our partners to help get refunds to those who would like them."

Press release:

US Death-Doom Legends Novembers Doom are finally storming down to Australia and New Zealand in July 2020.

Novembers Doom are one of the foundational American Death-Doom bands and since their inception in 1989 the group have released 11 albums.

The band has been on quite a journey since their inception in 1989 when they began as a Death-Thrash band, eventually mutating into a more traditional Death-Doom sound and now morphing that into a more mellow and dynamic approach that touches on progressive metal - an approach they have described as Dark Metal.

Critical acclaim around their latest release Nephilim Grove sees the band at the top of the Death-Doom pack for many listeners and reviewers from around the world.

The Dark Metal masters will be joined by Australian/Japanese Progressive Doom Metallers Enough to Escape, suffice it to say - doom metallers across the Antipodes in for one hell of a show.

With Yukito Zaki Okazaki of Eternal Elysium based in Japan and the rest of the Enough To Escape guys in Sydney the groups live shows are, as you can imagine, quite exclusive; their set is a punishing display of riff mastery and sonic misery that calls forth strains of Industrial Metal, Post Metal and Doom.

With their debut, Fortunes, out already, that sold out across Japan following their Japanese tour in 2019, Australian fans are hungry for the long-awaited tour ahead.

Point being - this tour will rage mate. Are you ready for the death doom apocalypse?
