When I was hired at Discovery Zone, I had hardly no interst in aband such as Nov’s Doom. My employer, Joe, has a friend that is a band member. Joe had told me that he was not to crazy about the style music and that I could listen and see if I liked it. Turns out that Nov’s Doom is one of the best band that I like next to Metallica.
Classic European doom metal sound from a contemporary American band! Elements of old Anathema, My Dying Bride and Paradise lost run amuck while never becoming derivative or typical. The lyrics and artwork round out a perfect package of dark beauty.

this is a grate cd anybody that likes metal will like this cd
This cd is really good, I like the way the riff are put together and the vocals as well utilizing growly and clean. If you like old my dying bride and old paradise lost, this cd is for you!!
Releases like this that have made me lose all faith in the American music industry. Now don’t get me wrong, I mean that in the best way possible. Its just so disheartening to see bands with so much talent like Novembers Doom scorned for stuff like Linkin Park, Staind, Slipknot…etc.
I could lament the unjustice of the recording industry all day, but I’ll get on with the review. Of Scultured Ivy And Stone Flowers may just be the quintessential Doom album of all time. It encompasses everything a Doom album should be. Sad, brooding, acerbic while still retaining a sense of elegance and a glimmer of hope. This is an album so filled with texture and emotion it takes you to another place. Every element comes together to form a darkly tranquil, profoundly human expierence.
