Biography

Rome, Italy (1990 – present)

Novembre is a band from Rome, Italy. Their music consists of atmospheric progressive metal with doom metal, death metal and gothic metal elements. Their lyrical themes revolve around dreams, nature, personal struggles and landscapes.

The group started in September 1990 when two Sicilian brothers, Carmelo Orlando (guitars, vocals) and Giuseppe Orlando (drums), formed a death metal band named Catacomb. About a year later, in November 1991 they released their first demo titled “Unreal”. Despite its poor sound-quality it immediately raised interest among the then-flourishing death metal scene. The 7” EP “The Return of the Ark” (released on Sacra Sindone Records) followed in early 1993 and due to its unusual mix of melancholic doom metal 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.

After two more years of hard work Novembre released their second album, “Arte Novecento”, which showed the band developing into an even darker direction. In Spring of 1997 Massimiliano Pagliuso (guitars) joined the band as a second guitarist, and towards the end of 1998 they inked a worldwide deal with Century Media Records.
