Novembers Doom - Aphotic

When listening to 'Aphotic', the latest offering from American romantic death/doom outfit Novembers Doom, it is evidence enough that the band don't expect to break any new ground with the eighth album into their career. At the same time, it can also be heard that the entire record does show some, if only slight changes in the group's style by means of a meatier sound production, weightier melodic riffs and a step up in tempo. 
While not major changes in themselves, it does mean that 'Aphotic' is a record which again shows that Novembers Doom are so confident in their own comfort zone that they know well enough how to manipulate it.
