Chicago's NOVEMBERS DOOM, who are currently touring in Europe and will release their first
live DVD "The Novella Vosselaar : Live in Belgium" on August 5th, 2008 (via THE END RECORDS), have issued an update.
In a posting online, vocalist Paul Kuhr relates how good of an experience this year's Graspop Metal Meeting was for the band:
"What an amazing festival. I've never seen anything that operates so smoothly. This is easily a career highlight for us. We played to a solid crowd
of thousands in early afternoon. Sensational all the way around, from the staff and crew, and the fans here are incredible.
We might not come home! Our entire set was pro shot, and I've posted a song from the set on Youtube.
Enjoy, and we'll give you a full update of the next 3 shows when we get home. Cheers!"
In other news, THE END RECORDS have reissued two of NOVEMBERS DOOM's earlier albums, both with new artwork, remastered and bonus tracks. The albums are: the 1995 debut "Amid its Hallowed Mirth" and 1999's "Of Sculptured Ivy and Stone Flowers."
