CD Reviews

Beautiful and mysterious metal bathed in blue
William Dorfer | 11/28/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although I'm new to Novembre and can't compare this to any of their other albums, I think "The Blue" on its own stands as a great album. Across the entire album, there are many beautiful melodies, dreamlike and huge-sounding. There's also a progressive influence, which is shown in the songwriting and dynamics, going from heavy to soft, or from clean vocals to growls. I like to think of this album as sounding like a cross between HIM and Opeth; it takes the melodies and mystical vibe of HIM and puts it with the heaviness, songwriting and progressive influence of Opeth.

It's a pleasant surprise to find that this band comes from Italy, giving me yet another reason to be proud of my heritage. Anyway, "The Blue" is overall a great album that gives metal a rare spin of beauty, melody and mystery mixed with intensity and heaviness, not to mention the band packs plenty of talent. Like I said, I can't say how this album compares to Novembre's other works, but on its own, I think it sets out to do what it wanted. Give it a good spin, preferably at night! Thanks for the time, and peace."
