Biography

Rome, Italy (1990 – present)

Novembre is a band from Rome, Italy. Their music consists of progressive/doom/death metal elements. Novembre was formed in 1990, under the name of Catacomb. Novembre is lyrically themed towards dreams, nature, personal struggles and landscapes. Novembre is currently signed to Peaceville Records.

They have made a solid impression upon both the death metal and atmospheric metal scenes with equally strong results. Ever since their inception, word about the group has spread among the underground scene on a worldwide basis.

It was back in September 1990 when the two brothers Carmelo Orlando (guitars and vocals) and Giuseppe Orlando (drums) formed the band CATACOMB.
About a year later, in November 1991 they released their first demo, ‘Unreal’. Despite its poor sound-quality it immediately raised peoples’ interest among the then-flourishing death metal scene. The 7” EP ‘The Return of the Ark’ (released by Sacra Sindone Records) followed in early 1993 and due to its unusual mix of melancholic gothic doom with classic influences caused even more exposure and popularity in the world-wide underground.
Soon after they renamed the band NOVEMBRE, as the former moniker did not represent the bands steadily progressing sound anymore.
Things finally felt right and around the same time NOVEMBRE signed to Polyphemus Records.
In the Fall of 1994 the band recorded their highly-acclaimed debut, Wish I Could Dream It Again… in Dan Swano’s Unisound Studios.
This was right around the same time as other leaders of the initial atmospheric scene recorded their first and early albums, making NOVEMBRE among the first bands inventing and playing this sound.
